The good ol’ boys down at Mud Stamp Films put out some GREAT mud truck and mud bog videos! And, this one of their Enormous Mega Mud Truck towing a less than enormous mega mud truck to the local mud bog and then letting both of their mud mega trucks loose in the mud bog is one of the greatest videos these mud-loving boys and gals have ever put together!

If you did not read any of this description you could very well be forgiven for believing that the 6×6 mud truck in this video was a full sized mud truck rocking and rolling through some ipic muddy terrain.

This is the Sick 50. It has rightfully achieved boss status. It’s loaded with a blown alcohol injected 540 big block engine, a killer red and black color scheme, matte black spoke rims, a nice throwback of a grille, two and a half ton axles and a turbo 400 transmission.

Do you know the Bling Machine Monster Truck? No? Well, it is a bling bling pimped out monster truck that despite its $1,000,000 price tag is down to earth enough to totally tear it up in the deepest, muddiest, nastiest of Florida’s mud holes! That is right, the Bling Machine is a real monster in the most monstrous of mud bogs.

Just yesterday, we showed you a set of grainy renderings from the JL Wrangler Forums. Today, we have more detailed renderings that show much greater detail of the vehicles. While these are highly detailed renderings, and not actual photographs, they give us our best look yet at the next-generation Wrangler.

In these shots, we can see more detail on the front lighting and that, at least on the higher trim levels, the JL will have not only LED strip running lights and turn signals but an LED “halo” in the headlights. At least in these renderings, the bumper-mounted fog lights appear to still be incandescent, but there’s a good chance the top-trim production models will have all-LED exterior lighting.

When the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 concept was revealed at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show, most never thought that the Bowtie would bring the diesel-powered, off-road spec, mid-size truck to market, at least not an affordable price. The Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSV) dampers sourced from Toronto, Canada-based Multimatic alone cost almost as much as some small hatchbacks.

Well, the doubters were wrong. The production Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 was unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show and now we know how much one will cost when the model goes on sale in the spring: a mere $40,995, at least to start.

“Mere” you ask? Well, there are only two other factory desert runners on the market, the Ford Raptor and Ram Rebel. Getting into a Raptor, as supremely capable as it is, requires parting with at least $49,520, while getting the keys to the milder Rebel will set you back at least $46,315.

Here’s a list of everything you get standard: front and rear electronic locking differentials, the aforementioned DSSV dampers, new front and rear bumpers for better off-road obstacle clearance, ZR2 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels with 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires, new cast iron control arms, an aluminum skidplate, Autotrac transfer case with shield, a new grille and hood, 3.42 rear axle ratio, front and rear tracks widened 3.5 inches, 2-in suspension lift, selectable off-road modes, four wheel disc brakes, spray-in bedliner, spare all-terrain tire, recovery hooks, and a host of other features.

Chevrolet will offer Colorado ZR2 in crew and extended cab configurations and a laundry list of available options that includes the 2.8-liter Duramax turbo diesel, seven-speaker Bose audio system, a bed mounted spare tire carrier, and a full-length black vinyl floor for easy cleaning.

The engine in the ZR2 is GM’s 3.6-liter DOHC V-6 tuned to produce 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque and mated to an eight-speed automatic. The diesel, which is mated to a six-speed automatic, offers 186 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, which makes for a slower dune runner but a more capable rock crawler.

“[The] ZR2 is truly a segment of one and does everything well — from traversing heavy two-track trails to high-speed desert running and full-on rock crawling,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks marketing director. “Some vehicles that customers might cross-shop with ZR2 can spec out as much as $26,000 more than our truck. When you buy a ZR2 at the starting price of $40,995, you are getting all of the significant off-road technologies standard with the vehicle, as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission and a wealth of other features at no additional cost.”

Ford will give owners of the 2017 F-150 Raptor the chance to hone their off-road driving skills in the just-announced Raptor Assault program. Offered for free to new owners of the off-road pickup, Raptor Assault will take place in the high desert of Utah and comprise both classroom education and in-truck practice.
According to the company, the newest Ford Performance program will introduce owners to the high-tech features and impressive capability, with rockcrawling, high-speed driving, side-hilling, hill descent, and braking on the docket. Ford hopes the program will help new F-150 Raptors to understand their new trucks’ capabilities and become better drivers, though we’re sure they’ll have fun learning, too.
 

Owners will be pleased to know Ford Performance will provide its own Raptors and safety gear. In addition to the off-roading instruction, Raptor Assault participants can opt for additional on-road performance driving instruction at the Utah Motorsports Campus. Ford will provide instruction and two meals per day, with participants responsible for travel, hotel, and dinner costs.

The Raptor Assault website will provide prospective participants with schedule information, guidelines, and rules as they become available. Raptor Assault is the fourth program offered by Ford Performance Racing School, following programs designed for the Shelby GT350, Focus and Fiesta ST, and Focus RS.

If you’re at all like us, then you probably spend nearly every extra penny you have on 4x4s and off-road parts throughout the year. So when a big chunk of change like an inheritance from a long-lost relative comes along, of course you probably grieve at least a little, but your mind goes wild with all the modifications it will allow you to afford. That is as long as you can keep it out of the hands of a significant other, who most certainly has been eyeballing a new leather sofa, bunk beds for the kids, or a European vacation. You may not have wealthy relatives, but there is a cash resource that many of us receive every year. It’s called the Government 4×4 Buildup Assistance Program, otherwise known as your tax refund.

The average tax refund for 2015 was $3,120, and the average refund for 2016 should be similar. We’re sure that your mind is already calculating what that could mean for your 4×4. It’s important to not frivolously waste this precious resource. You need us to help guide you! So how would we spend your tax refund? Well, quite simply, we’d spend it on us! What did you think would happen if you handed us a $3,000 check? Now, if you want to know how we would spend your tax refund on you and your 4×4, read on.
