“Big Red” is a 1977 Ford F-250 Crew Cab sporting a big-block Ford engine that produces 600 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. or torque. It sports 3-inch King bypass shocks, a 10-inch over soft-ride leaf springs, and featured 20-inch Moto Metal wheels fitted with 40-inch Toyo Open Country tires.

Off-road fans gathered for the 2013 Off-Road Expo this past weekend at the Pomona Fairplex in Southern California. Thousands perused the new products, show vehicles, racer autograph sessions and press conferences, such as SCORE announcing the Baja 1000 course map and drawing for starting positions.
