Driving Australia's Most Challenging Off-Road Trail Driving Australia's Most Challenging Off-Road Trail

For most of Cape York, the remote peninsula north of Cairns that runs parallel to the Great Barrier Reef, the nearest major city isn’t even in Australia, it’s in Papua New Guinea. You know, where head-hunting was a thing up until a couple of decades ago. We just drove through it on the most challenging off-road trail…

Inside California's Forgotten Grasslands Inside California's Forgotten Grasslands

Filled with hidden canyons created by the San Andreas fault and home to the only antelope in Southern California, the Carrizo Plain is a fascinating, inhospitable, alien world. And one you probably haven’t heard of, much less visited. Let’s change that.

This weekend, we took the off-road version of the new Ford F-150 pickup through the highest elevation trail in California. It’d be a test for its new turbocharged engine and its ability on dirt, rocks and sand. Could America’s best selling vehicle hack it?

I just visited Iceland for the first time! But, due to airport chaos, I was only there for exactly 36 hours. Here's what I learned from my short trip, camping out on ice and dunking myself in the country's steaming hot springs.

Why The 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Is A Cool Idea With Weak Execution Why The 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Is A Cool Idea With Weak Execution

From TruckYeah! The 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is that washed up, loose-cannon-cop-on-the-edge pulled out of retirement for "one last job." Giving an old hero a shiny badge and a new gun always works on TV, but this truck isn't quite up to fighting its rivals anymore, on-road or off.

Watch this awesome Lego monster truck dominate stacks of books

Sariel makes the coolest custom Lego Technic models and this one is no different than the dozens that came before it. This all custom 4x4 crawler is jacked up with some mid-2000s Technic shocks that he designed to be adjustable and custom RC off road tires. I giggled when I saw one of his obstacle courses was made…

We're excited for the new, compact 2015 Jeep Renegade. But, will it go off-road? We called up Jeep's chief engineer and asked. He gave us exclusive, never-before-seen specs and details.

Disabled Explorers In the World's Most Badass Short Bus Disabled Explorers In the World's Most Badass Short Bus

System builders listen up. If you've been eyeing AMD's 4x4 platform, the company has teamed up with Thermaltake to create two Quad FX-ready towers, the Armor Extreme Edition and the Kandalf Extreme Edition.
