Just because something can be done doesn’t mean it should be done. But that didn’t stop Cullen and the crew from Up North Outdoors from building the dumbest 3-wheel ATV ever. They started with a Honda 200M all-terrain cycle, chopped it up, and added a tall metal frame to get its rider over 12 feet off the ground. Naw, this thing doesn’t look sketchy at all.
A typical ATV has four wheels, and a tank rolls on tracks driven by several smaller wheels. This unique ATV from Finland marches to the beat of a different drummer, rolling on 18 wheels, each with its own motor and springy suspension. Invented by Eldar Aliev, the 18-wheeler can crawl over rocks up to 14″ tall, fallen trees, ride through water, and even climb stairs.
Got an old ATV and a moped sitting in your garage? You could take them to the junkyard, or you could do what Meanwhile in the Garage did and turn them into a tank for your kid. Of course, there was much more to it than rearranging parts. Quantum Tech HD boiled down the laborious 6-month project into a 20-minute video.
Designed to perform in thick mud, the Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 High Lifter features high-mounted air intakes and clutch ducting to keep clean air flowing.

Vanderhall Motor Works is working on a Jeep-like pure-electric ATV. It has four motors, rides on 35″ tires and 18″ wheels, and has a crazy 22″ of suspension travel. The base model makes 303 hp and 360 lb-ft of torque, while the top-of-the-line GTS makes 404 hp and 480 lb-ft. of torque. Sadly, it’s not street legal. (Thanks, Craig!)
The Sherp is one of the most capable all-terrain vehicles we’ve seen.It can handle all kinds of muddy and wet terrain, but how does it do in the city? Grind Hard Plumbing Co., Rich Rebuilds, and Electrified Garage attempted to drive one to Boston via the Charles River, but their journey was not without its problems.

Kawasaki’s side-by-side UTV packs 2.5″ Fox shocks, offering 18.6″ of wheel travel in front and 21.1″ in the rear, and has a longer wheelbase and wider footprint than the competition. It rides on enormous 31″ x 10″ tires, wrapped around beadlock rims, and looks particularly badass in Lime Green with Metallic Onyx Black.
Designed for easy riding on rugged off-road trails, Polaris’ new General crossover packs a 100 hp engine, a wide 64″ footprint, and an impressive 13.5″ ground clearance for riding over just about anything.

All that remains from the Disney Princess Power Wheels Jeep is its pink plastic shell, but The Grind Hard Plumbing Co.’s latest build is simply awesome. The tricked out one-seater now has a 50hp CRF 450 dirt bike engine, and an off-road suspension, making for tons of fun in the dirt.

We just cracked our piggy bank open and see that we have $300K in there, so it’s time to treat ourselves to this handsome fellow. You and three pals can check out the scene above and below the water surface, and can drive it right off a trailer into the water. See you in the pool.
The RZR RS1 is based on the RZR XP 1000 but with a lighter chassis and a center-cockpit setup. That means better visibility and stability, especially when ripping through corners. It has a 110hp 4-stroke twin cylinder engine, 16″ travel front suspension and 18″ travel rear suspension.
