We could have played all day on the walls of "The Notch," but there was plenty of other terrain to explore.

After just a few attempts, Ken was climbing over sections of Truck Haven that had stopped some serious 4X4s in their tracks.

The locking differential of the Teryx makes tricky sections of the trail a breeze when combined with the power of its 750cc engine.

The stable platform of the Teryx makes it well suited for rock crawling duties as well as hauling the mail through the desert.

As nice as some of the Jeeps were at the Tierra Del Sol, it would be hard to imagine the pain of putting a scratch on them. That is why we prefer the Teryx; plastic is much cheaper than sheet metal.
