This photo was passed around the office a few times for obvious reasons. There is nothing like seeing a full size '77 Chevy Blazer tearing through the sky. Todd Davis of Conklin, Michigan, sends us this photo a friend of his took while playing in the local dunes. A few of his modifications include a 6-inch Superlift suspension, Rancho stabilizer, 33-inch Daytona radial tires, new ladder bars, Edelbrock camshaft, Hooker headers and more.
Mike Sieling with his '89 Jeep Wrangler is no stranger to fun in the mud. The guy behind the wheel is Mike's son Brian who is currently serving in Iraq and is a big time reader of Off-Road Magazine. The Jeep is currently bone stock but Mike assures us that even stock his ride can go anywhere. Upon Brian's return home Mike plans on dropping a few dollars into the Jeep and transforming it into an even more off-road worthy machine with the addition of a suspension lift and larger wheels and tires.
Steve Stahovich had just completed the build on his Ford Ranger, but sadly on only his second desert trip, disaster struck. He was doing roughly 50 mph through and open section of the desert and took a hard hit, which rolled the truck four or five times (he can't really remember). Fortunately, he had built the truck right and it probably saved his life that day. Looks like its back to the shop for Steve.
Side By Rides
When Chad Lemmon heads out into the woods in his '07 Yamaha Rhino, his wife Bethany and daughter Haylee aren't far behind. The family loves their Rhino so much they have completely redesigned it. Their daughter is still a bit young to reach the pedals so they picked her up a mini kid's version of the Rhino so she can have fun in the dirt too. A few of the Rhino's mods include JE Pistons high compression pistons, K&N air filter, MSD ignition and a custom rollcage.
