Photographers: 4 Wheel & Off-Road Staff

Driver: Tim Hardy
Stomping Grounds: The Wild West
Tim Hardy is a virtual walking, talking Swiss Army Knife. He can make stuff that doesn’t exist, repair the irreparable, and even manage to pull a trailer through trails that the average rig can barely drive through. Tim has been on almost all Ultimate Adventures, each time piloting one of his seemingly low-budget yet indestructible Suzukis. And while the UA F-150 was the first official IFS rig to lead the pack, it hasn’t been the only IFS rig on the UA. Tim piloted an IFS Sidekick on UA 2007.
