Offroad Camping Setups
Camping and off-roading go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. With the growing popularity of Overland-style off-roading (see What is Overlanding?), more and more outdoor adventure seekers are looking for ways to sleep in their rig. Some off-road enthusiasts can’t leave home without their Serta mattress and full size shower, while others take on a “less is more” approach to getting off the grid. Which of these off-road campers is more your style?

Deep Mud Hole
You know you’re pushing the limits of your Jeep Wrangler when you’re bouncing off the rev limiter.  This guy made quick work of this deep mud hole in his Wrangler but his engine definitely had to work for it.

The Can-Am / Murray Racing desert racing team of Derek and Jason Murray earned their first SCORE International side-by-side vehicle class championship November 20 in Baja California, Mexico. The brothers, who have raced consistently all year long, came into the round third in the class point standings. Another solid finish meant a shot at winning the Pro UTV Forced Induction (Turbo) title. The brothers, along with fellow driver Logan Gastel, earned their first SCORE International championship with their sixth-place finish at the 49th annual Baja 1000.

ENSENADA, Mexico — With the tenacity of a tiger, coupled with the dogged determination and diligent discipline he used to earn his bachelor’s degree last year at Clemson University while continuing a strong presence in the desert, SoCal’s Rafael Navarro IV has won the overall and Class 10 point championship of the four-race 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship.

A third-generation desert racer from Temecula, Calif., Navarro IV, just 23, drove the No. 1009 Chevy-power Alumi Craft open-wheel desert race car to second place finishes in all four races to earn 376 championship points to become the just the fourth racer from Class 10 (1655cc engines) and first in 20 years to earn the overall title for SCORE International, which is celebrating its 43rd year as the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Organization.

Blue Trucks
Feeling blue? The owners of these beautiful pickups certainly are, and that’s a good thing. In fact, we’d argue taking a cruise in any one of these beauties would be the cure for just about any case of the blues.  Check out these epic all blue truck paint schemes.

Trophy Truck Motocross
For the most part, Trophy Trucks are synonymous with high speeds and deep whoops.  You usually don’t picture them on tight, technical motocross-style tracks. However, the minds behind the Dirt Tour and 212 Land put on one heck of an event where they blended Trophy Trucks and a motocross track. By the looks of things, the truck drivers were right at home.

Ford Raptor Truck Fail
We’ll never know what possesses a person to jump such a beautiful (and expensive) truck knowing that the outcome probably isn’t going to be good.  This Ford Raptor jump had almost no chance of turning out well.  I guess a big crowd and a shot at a few minutes of fame is enough for some people… check out the carnage below.
