High Desert Off-Roading
Leave the highway behind and take on the Southern California desert in a one-of-a-kind truck made for the great outdoors.
Terrain for every taste
From open desert to dry lake beds, rolling hills to rocky ridges, the off-highway vehicle area of Johnson Valley, CA, has just about every type of terrain you could ever want to test a truck - and have a great time doing it.
These 96,000 acres of wild and free public land are just waiting to be cruised, crawled, climbed and explored. There's something for everyone, no matter your level of off-road driving experience. But let's be clear about what you're driving: stock just ain't gonna cut it.
You need a machine that's ready for anything. One you can trust to go up, down and all around a landscape that's testing you just as much as your truck. There are all kinds of trucks you could start with and modify to your liking. We chose a 2022 Silverado - and it sure didn't disappoint.
From Stock to Stocked
