  • Every year, hundreds of avid off-roaders descend on Moab, Utah thanks to the different roads and off-roading trails available near the area. If you are one of these visitors, you are going to need somewhere to put up your feet and rest after a long day spent conquering obstacles out on the trail.

  • There are two things we at Dixie 4 Wheel Drive are passionate about- building custom 4x4s and off-roading. We try and do as much of the latter as we can and luckily, we live in the southwest where we have miles of trails right at our doorstep.

  • Off-roading is the ultimate driving adventure for those looking to try something new. While you can technically take any car off-road, not every vehicle can handle the punishment that mud bogging, rock crawling and dune shredding hand out.

  • One of the best things about living in Southern Utah is being able to enjoy the great trails in this part of the country. We have miles of rugged terrain to suit all off-roaders from rock crawling to dune shredding in the expansive Sand Hollow State Park.

  • There are days you want to take a leisurely scenic drive with your family and there are times you want to go out on the roughest trail to pit your rig against the toughest obstacles you can find. The good thing about signing up for South Utah trail rides is that you can find trails that suit both of those tastes.

  • At Dixie 4 Wheel Drive, we love hitting the trails almost as much as we love building custom rigs. Since we’d like as many people as possible to experience the thrill of pitting metal against rock, we decided to start off-roading education and trail ride events. Many of the novices who sign up to our off-road training class are often eager but hesitant to sign up for our southern Utah trail rides.

  • One of the most popular custom modifications four-wheel owners make to their rides is swapping their stock wheels for aftermarket ones. This is sometimes done for cosmetic reasons- when a driver wants to switch up his 4x4’s look. Sometimes it’s out of necessity for example if you’ve gotten a suspension lift kit for your rig or you upgraded your tire size.

  • The American southwest has lots of amazing trails for anyone who wants to put their 4x4 to the test. Moab, Utah is the epicenter of the southwest and here you can find trails ranging from mild to wild -enough to suit everybody’s skill level.

    However, before hitting the trails, you need to ensure that your vehicle is up to the task. You might need to make a few modifications and upgrades to your four-wheeler to boost its off-roading performance. Alternatively, your vehicle might breakdown, especially on some of the more punishing trails, hence the need for immediate attention from a mechanic.

  • It’s no secret that Moab, Utah is famous for its incredible trails. Thanks to climatic and geological changes- mostly wind and water erosion, the sandstone near and around Moab has been crafted into incredible trails. These are perfect for off-roading.

  • With winter coming to an end, we can start preparing for warmer weather. Part of the preparation involves getting your truck ready for the coming spring. Winter, with its harsh weather, can really do a number on your vehicle so as the weather warms up, remember to give your truck some care and attention to ensure it’s in top driving condition. This can involve some general maintenance and repair work.
