Prerunner Articles

Every year the biggest names in the Off- Road industry gather in Pomona CA. for the Lucas Oil Off Road Expo. Even with the unusual heat of the weekend the turn out was stellar.

Ford has always been a leader in making special edition trucks, and with the announcement of the new 2014 F150 Tremor, I began to wonder how well this truck would perform as a prerunner.

Check out this short film about a guy that takes his Chevy from prerunner to race truck. We are looking to do a full feature on this truck soon.

There are a lot of rumors going around that Ford might offer the 3.5 liter twin-turbo Ecoboost motor as a crate engine complete with its own stand-alone wiring harness. This got me thinking how great it would be to swap this in our Ranger prerunner.

Ford Raptor Redefines Factory Off-Road Truck with Exclusive New Beadlock Wheels, High Technology, Camo-Inspired Color

  • Ford raises the F-150 SVT Raptor bar again for 2013, offering industry-exclusive beadlock-capable wheels to help increase grip in low-traction conditions
  • SVT Raptor now offers high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps for improved visibility, SYNC® with MyFord Touch® for added connectivity and an all-new earth-toned color called Terrain
  • New Raptor offerings build on internal triple-bypass FOX Racing Shox dampers, Torsen® front differential and front-mounted camera technologies, adding even more high-performance off-road capability

Yes I know after reading that title you are probably saying WTF, hold on and let me explain.

The past couple years you could really see how the economy was affecting the SEMA Show, attendance was still high but the exhibitors' were a little lacking.

For 2011 we saw a huge change for the better at the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

With more than 350 Exhibitors, the 2011 Off Road Expo was an off roader's paradise, and there were plenty of prerunners featured, not just Jeeps and Crawlers. We took a ton of pics of prerunners from every angle we could get to.

With the success of the Ford SVT Raptor, and the announcement of the Dodge Ram Runner, GMC looks to make their mark on the Off Road industry with their Sierra All Terrain HD Concept. It is on display now, at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.

Ford produced a series of videos showing just what their new EcoBoost engine is capable of. Episode 5 shows the F-150 running the Baja 1000.

When you decide to build a prerunner most people first think, “What model truck should I build?”, but most people never consider another important build factor, 2WD or 4WD.

The Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo is the grand daddy of all off-road shows, and this is the first time we have been able to make it. We liked it so much it is already on the calendar for next year.

We had been hearing rumors that this years SEMA show was not going to be like it had in the past. With homes foreclosing, and people loosing their jobs the last thing on their minds is automotive aftermarket. Well this might have been true for some but there was still a huge presence this year to the tune of over 125,000 people.

Even with the bad economy Halloween at Dumont Dunes turned out to be a blast for many in 2009.

It was another beautiful day in the OC for the opener of the 2009 Extreme Motorsports Expo. We covered this event in 2007 and was surprised at the quality of the vendors and attraction. Well this year we saw even more vendors dedicated to Side x Sides and Prerunners.

This year SEMA definitely stepped up its game when it comes to the desert and the items we like for our Prerunners and Side x Sides. The Truck and Off-road area was twice the size this year as it was last year.
