Just in case you were stuck in the garage wrenching this weekend and missed the Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo, we have you covered! We spent the weekend at the Fairplex in Pomona, California, amongst the hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of off-road fans. There was something for everyone whether it was overlanding, shiny show rigs, desert racers, or rock crawlers.
Back from the 2019 Ultimate Adventure was the Cummins R2.8-powered Ultimate International showing off its Skyjacker suspension, Falken tires, and array of off-road goodies.
We found another International vehicle we’d absolutely love to see on the trails of Alaska, or anywhere.
The Toyo Tires booth had some unique adventure rigs including an Audi decked with gear.
Is this the way you’d like your Bronco to look?
Smittybilt, Rubicon Express, and Pro Comp sculpted a mini Rubicon Trail course and were giving rides! Folks lined up by the hundreds to jump into a built Jeep JK and be chauffeured through the boulder-strewn course. Seasoned wheelers reclined in their seats and fans newer to the sport held their breath as the Jeeps flexed and crawled over the obstacles. Not only did 4 Wheel Parts bring their share of rigs to the Expo, they also brought their entire stockroom of parts. Aisles of truck and Jeep accessories were available for perusal and purchase, in case you were suddenly inspired to buy a winch or set of headlights.
This JK was driven by Jessi Combs and was on display as a tribute to the pillar of the off-road community.
Plenty of sharp-looking fullsize rigs lined the walkways.
We found this treasure in the American Force booth.
Dynatrac’s Tony Carvallo showed us the company’s new Enduro Sport front bumper featuring removable wings, steel construction, compatibility with rock lights, and remarkable design quality.
MetalCloak wasted no time outfitting a Gladiator with its suspension components.
Which of these Gladiators just made it back from Baja?
