Rhino RTVSAN DIEGO, CA - Rhino Rough Terrain Vehicle (RTV) sponsor Rhino Linings USA, Inc. announces that the highly anticipated extreme off-road vehicle is now available from Rhino Off-Road Industries.  The RTV, a hybrid ATV/Monster Truck off-road performance machine that turned heads at events like Moab, Utahs Easter Jeep Safari and Las Vegas, Nevadas National Drag Races, is now in production and available for sale.

Featuring a custom-designed air shock system adjustable for a variety of off-road terrains from rock crawling to desert running, the Rhino RTV is a single passenger recreational off-road vehicle that comes standard with features such as a Honda B20B 4-cyclinder DOHC 2L engine, 37 ProComp X-Terrain tires, 4-speed automatic transmission and an off-road adjustable racing suspension seat. Designed to be one of the safest off-road vehicles ever, the RTV comes with a fully race-compliant roll cage with 1.5 street tubing,  5 point racing harness and 4-wheel independent front and rear disc brakes. Additional specifications are hydraulic steering, Ford 9 differentials with a choice of 4.11 or 3.50 gears and an 8-gallon fuel tank.  Optional features include a fiberglass body to fit over the roll cage (transforming the RTV into a mini-monster truck), a racing fuel cell, 4-wheel steering and a chrome frame.
