We asked SlikRok Productions to give us a recap of their time at Rally on the Rocks in Moab. They have a unique flair for style and are all about making our hobby look good. Take a look at their gallery below and then go check out SlikRokProductions.com, and follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. And you need to subscribe to their YouTube channel! I can say with confidence that they have some of the very best side-x-side footage out there. Now here's what SlikRok Productions has to say about the 2017 Rally on the Rocks in Moab: I have been having a hard time trying to figure out how to sum up this year’s Rally on The Rocks into a single blog post. I am sitting here going back through all the footage and I find myself grinning from ear to ear. But before I tell you why, I need you to know that my biggest fear with what we do is finding that balance between control and chaos because one equals success and the other equals disaster. I like to look at it more as a balance of the two. A state of controlled chaos where man is one with his machine, knowing its abilities and limitations, knowing when he can push it farther or knowing when to back off and reassess. The machine is only as capable as its driver and man is only as capable as his machine. Knowing both the abilities and limitations of one’s self and one’s machine makes the state of controlled chaos possible. I had many moments this week where I knew I could push it farther and on the flip side of that there were moments when I had to step aside. The only way I know how to prepare myself for these situations is two things, experience which comes from time in the seat and having someone more experienced than me to learn from. You must have full confidence in your machine, and the products you choose to put on it plays a big role in that. All of us here at SlikRok are constantly looking for new products that will allow us to elevate the sport, to take what is possible to the next level. Finding that next product that becomes a game changer is what we are all about. A lot of thought, testing, and time goes into the process of choosing which products to run on our rigs. We run SuperAtv High Clearance Forward Offset A-Arms because they hold up to the abuse we subject them to and we can adjust the camber and caster. We also run SuperAtv HD ball joints and Hd Tie rods. The biggest game changer for us was when we decided to run the SuperAtv 4” Portal gear lifts. Without fail we have always broke axles and burned up belts out on the trail. Since we have been running portals we have not broken a single stock Polaris axle or burned up a single Polaris belt. That in and of itself speaks volumes. If you have watched our videos, you know that we don’t hold back or take it easy. These products are extremely well built and we have not had any issues or problems with failures. We are picky when it comes to our machines and will only promote products that we know will NOT leave you stranded on the trail. We had the opportunity to spend some time with the owners of SuperATV while we were at Rally on The Rocks and I can't say enough good about them. As we sat there and talked, they both kept asking us what can we improve, what don't you like, what would you change to make that product better. They are so focused on improving their products because they want to offer only the best to their customers. That attitude and focus resonates through their whole company and especially their customer service. So, having just ran some of the toughest trails Moab has to offer and being able to do so without breaking anything and sharing this trip with the best friends a guy could ask for is why I sit here grinning from ear to ear as I recap what we just accomplished.

SuperATV was at Rally on the Rocks in Moab last week. The air was chilly but we met a ton of cool people and saw a lot of eye-catching custom vehicles. We were even lucky enough to get to hang out with some of the guys that put those builds together. We were super busy helping out all the wonderful people there that needed a replacement part or two, but we did manage to squeeze in some riding time as well.
Cool FolksWe were surrounded by so many amazing rides and friendly people that we didn't know where to divert our attention. The guys over at Slik Rok Productions were nice enough to bring their customer RZRs right up to our booth. (Be sure to keep your eye on them. We might show up in one of their videos soon!) They were head-turners for sure and fit nicely next to Bad Blood and our custom 2017 General 4 1000. Slik Rok Productions wasn't our only industry peer at Rally on the Rocks. Hicks Offroad Designs came out to ride with us all the way from Texas. He's a skilled driver and showed us a few tricks of his own while we explored the Moab Mountains. There were so many other cool vendors there too. We met Moab SidexSide on their home turf. Kombustion Motorsports stopped by the booth and we said hey to RCR Performance. We must have met hundreds of people at our booth. A lot of people were coming back from rides with broken axles, ball joints, a-arms, or anything else you can break on a machine. We were more than happy to help them out of a pinch and get them back on the trail with replacement parts. But it was worth it seeing the smile on everybody's face when they knew they could keep hitting the trails the rest of the week. A lot of you just wanted to come up to say hi. That always means a lot to us. Our fans are some of the best and we loved seeing all of you there. Big or small. [caption id="attachment_791" align="alignnone" width="4032"] Nice sunglasses![/caption] If you've ever been to our SuperATV headquarters, you'll know we have a special place in our hearts for our four-legged friends. We love seeing them out enjoying some off-roading!
Cool TrailsBetween patching up vehicles and playing with dogs we did manage to grab some good riding time and take in the stunning scenery. The endless rolling sandstone and the smooth, stone waves frozen in time along with the natural, crater-like hot tubs - sometimes 50 feet across - gave the landscape an almost alien appearance. All of which cut into dramatic cliffs and bluffs by eons of erosion from the Colorado River. The trails all around Moab have striking views of this unique landscape. Harold Hunt, SuperATV's owner, got to explore the cliffs, shelves, canyons and hot tubs in our custom built 2017 Polaris General 4 1000.

You can see the La Sal mountains peeking over the horizon[/caption] Nowhere is the immensity of the landscape more apparent than at the overlook on Hell's Revenge. We managed to squeeze in one last run through this tough trail on the last day just as the weather started warming up, and we made it to the overlook as the sun was setting. A great way to end the week. We here at SuperATV want to thank everybody that stopped by our booth at Rally on the Rocks and made the event a memorable one. We sincerely hope we'll get to see you all again next year! Check out our gallery from Rally at the Rocks below!

When we were thinking about what we wanted to do at Rally on the Rocks in Moab, we knew a stock vehicle wouldn't quite cut it. We wanted a vehicle that could handle every bit of eastern Utah's rocky desert terrain. So we took a stock 2017 Polaris General 4 1000 and threw some of our best machine protection, suspension, and accessories on it to make sure we got the most out of our visit to Moab.
