4x4Blog.com was created and is managed by Scott and Todd of Folsom, CA. We are lucky enough to live a short distance from the world famous Rubicon Trail which is where we spend many weekends out of the year (camping, 4-wheeling, and enjoying nature!).
A little about us, our four-wheeling adventures and vehicles.
We are brothers who have been four-wheeling for over 10 years. We don’t care if it’s a Jeep, Toyota, quad, or Camry if it has 4 wheels and tires we will off-road it! We also work on our own vehicles as much as possible (as time allows), and you will see many pictures and videos of build-ups of our vehicles over time. 4×4 Fabrication as well as metalwork in general are both hobbies Scott and Todd enjoy.
Scott’s Vehicle Profile
- 1991 Jeep Wrangler that has been converted to mostly buggy. The primary purpose of this vehicle is rock-crawling but it does see some mud and high-speed during competitions.
- 2006 Polaris Sportsman 500 X2 4×4 Quad. This is his 4×4 quad that doubles as an around the camp toy. This quad has seen many trips to the Rubicon as well as local mud holes. Don’t let the name fool you this quad sees air time and is not only used to crawl but also fly and go fast. Being able to haul two persons this vehicle also doubles as emergency parts recovery vehicle! The extra space is great for hauling wood to spare transmissions!
- 2003 Chevy 2500HD Duramax is the choice tow-rig for Scott.
Todd’s Vehicle Profile
- 1989 Jeep Wrangler that has been converted to a buggy. The primary purpose of this rig is rock-crawling and rock-hauling! Todd enjoys going slow but his heart starts to really beat when he’s bouncing off the rev-limiter in 2nd gear!
- 2006 Polaris Sportsman 800 4×4 Quad. This is Todd’s camp toy as well as a secondary rock crawler for when his primary 4×4 is being modified. The 4×4 quad is great for the Rubicon, sand dunes and just general hauling ass!
- 2007 Ford F250 Diesel is the choice tow-rig for Todd. 35″ tires make this rig feel at home towing the toys to the trail through riverbeds and deep snow.
What terrain, and where we wheel.
- We are fortunate enough to live near many trails including the world famous Rubicon Trail which stretches from Loon Lake to Lake Tahoe. The Rubicon is our favorite local trail and being under two hours away makes it an easy trip for weekends. We enjoy off-roading on the rocks which is also called Rock-Crawling. During the winter months you will find us snow-wheeling on the Rubicon or off HWY-50 almost every weekend. While we do not compete in a series we enjoy competing in local events around California for fun.
