— Setting up a UTV for extreme rock crawling —
We are always excited when King of the Hammers rolls around every February. It’s a great time to check out the crazy builds people bring from all over the country; however, in the UTV class, most of the machines are pretty stock. The rules allow a nearly stock machine to race and, after an event like this, the car is pretty wasted, so people don’t put that much effort into building nice rigs. But, this year there was one exception.
Ross Pilgreen drove all the way out to Johnson Valley, California, from Little Rock, Arkansas, to try his hand at KOH in a totally custom RZR he and his navigator, Heath Day, built by hand. Even the supplied parts, such as portals from SuperATV, were completely modified to Pilgreen’s specs.
Here are the detailed images of the most custom-built UTV at the 2018 King of the Hammers.
