With announcements from Jeep about bringing back a pickup, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma and 2016 Ram Rebel reveals, and an awesome SEMA, 2015 was an action-packed year for the off-road world and fourwheeler.com. As we get ready to end another year here at Four Wheeler Network, we wanted to see what the most popular articles of 2015 were, so we did a little research—and some very difficult math—and were able to see which stories were in the top 10.
Building or buying off-road rigs is a hot-button issue with everyone who wheels. Katie brought up several good points in this story that a lot of you had a firm opinion about.
Ram first unveiled this off-road–capable pickup at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), and it was a hit right away. With a unique grille, bold badging, off-road suspension, and 33-inch all-terrain tires, the Ram Rebel caught a lot of attention.
The staff at the Four Wheeler Network has many heated debates over everything off-road, and we all have an opinion about the most overrated 4x4s ever made. Once all the yelling stopped, we were able to right our own most overrated 4x4 ever made, and we even told you why.
If there is one thing every wheeler has, it’s a set of aggressive tires more suited for the trail than the highway. While we were walking countless miles at this year’s SEMA, we saw plenty of crazy tire treads that offered unique features for improving traction.
While this may not be extremely off-road related, Ford makes some tough trucks, even in its Medium Duty lineup, and the company wanted to show us how it tests these trucks for durability. Thanks to the Tonka-like similarities, our inner child couldn’t get enough of these massive rigs being tested by Ford.
This project flatfender represents what we love about old Jeeps: a compact rig built to withstand the test of time with plenty of ways to make it more capable. John Cappa has been building this old GPW in his garage all year, and everyone wants to follow along as he works his way to completion.
October 21, 2015 was the day Doc and Marty traveled to the future in the awesome Back to the Future movie. In honor of that, Toyota built a 2016 Toyota Tacoma that Marty McFly would love to drive around today.
We’ve all bought used parts, whether it’s from the junkyard, your buddy, or Craigslist. Used tires present a different dilemma: Not knowing how old the tire actually is may leave you with a good-looking tire that’s junk. We put together some information about how to make sure you don’t get hosed on your next purchase.
Although we ran this as an April Fools’ joke, we wanted it to be real and so did you. We love the Ramcharger and would be stoked if Dodge brought this off-road–capable SUV back to the market in the future. Until Dodge does, enjoy this awesome rendering we want in our driveway.
The number one most popular story on fourwheeler.com featured great news from Jeep: The company will be making a pickup in the near future. Everyone has been waiting for a Jeep pickup since production stopped many moons ago. With production plans confirmed, we will see a Jeep truck before the end of the decade.
