Out of the Box, and into the Rocks

Rock-crawling a bone stock Kawasaki Teryx in Moab, Utah

Jeff Knoll Steel Bender 199x300 Out of the Box, and into the RocksWhile most may not feel the need to tackle trails rated in a manner that scares away the average Jeep owner, when I was invited to join a group of dedicated UTV owners for a weeklong trip in Moab, I nearly jumped at the chance.
