One of the first things I noticed when I moved out to California was the plethora of off-road trucks that roam the streets. Everything from trophy trucks and rock crawlers, to all manner of jacked-up SUV’s can be seen out here. The main reason is that here on the west coast off-roading is big business, and with big business comes big events. King of the Hammers is one such event that’s held down in Johnson Valley, CA and it’s an event that incorporates everything from high-speed desert running to rock crawling. This event is not for the faint of heart, as both man and machine get pounded within an inch of their lives. However if you’ve got a kick-ass off-road vehicle and balls the size of coconuts then the King of the Hammers may be for you.
