— The latest hardware you should know about —

Like California, Arizona has its own Sand Show and Off-Road Expo where Arizona’s many aftermarket companies show off their latest and greatest products for UTVs. We attended the Off-Road Expo to check out the new technologies in suspension, turbocharging, tires and wheels, lighting, navigation, sound, and comfort for our high-performance UTVs.
