TIME TO WHEEL
Exclusive magazine for customers of 4 WHEEL PARTS
and off-road enthusiasts everywhere.
PRESIDENT & CEO
4 Wheel Parts
Well, it’s springtime, which means it is time to go
wheeling. The Easter Jeep Safari in Moab is
a great way to start the season! Moab is such
a beautiful and iconic place to hit the trails. Many
four-wheelers are fortunate enough to experience this
beautiful place. Moab sits within the Canyonlands
National Park, which has come under fire by many environmental
groups looking to ban all motorized access
to the area. The new administration in Washington, DC
is supportive of local decision-making. That should be
a big benefit for our enthusiasts who enjoy recreation in
this beautiful place. Of course, the Off Road Business
Association (ORBA) and Specialty Equipment Market
Association (SEMA) will continue to keep the fight going!
Meanwhile, this magazine has some of the first printed
coverage of the 2017 King of the Hammers from Johnson
Valley, CA. The battle to be the King was won this
year by Shannon Campbell, an Arizona-based fabricator
and legend in rock racing! After qualifying 18th, we
were able to move into the top five, but had mechanical
issues that put us back three hours. After resolving the
fuel delivery issue, we switched gears to finishing mode
and brought our 4 Wheel Parts/BFG tire Ultra4 to the
checkered flag. It was nice to get a finish, but certainly
not the position we wanted. We have to wait 365 more
days to get another shot to be the King of the Hammers!
If you make your home in the Northwest, then don’t
miss out on Truck & Jeep Fest when the show rolls
through Seattle, WA at the Puyallup Fairgrounds on April
8-9. Come meet the top manufacturers in the industry,
see the newest products first hand, and take advantage
of great deals! We also have a stop in Daytona Beach,
Florida for the popular Jeep Beach April 28-29. The
next month, the show crew heads south to Dallas, Texas
on May 20-21 at the Market Center Arena. This is our
only stop in Texas this year, so don’t miss out!
On another note, please take time to support the
Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act. In
2015 the Environmental Protection Agency introduced
a proposal that would have prohibited the conversion
of street vehicles into race vehicles used exclusively for
racing. Eventually that proposal was withdrawn, but the
EPA still asserts they have the authority under the Clean
Air Act to regulate competition vehicles. The RPM Act
makes it clear that this is not the case, and needs your
help to get passed. To get involved and help protect the
future of motorsports visit SEMA.org and click on the
RPM Act tab.
Thank you for your business with 4 Wheel Parts and
enjoy this month’s Off-Road Adventures magazine. As always
this FREE magazine is supported by the many great
brands we sell, so please consider supporting them.
