Guest Post: SlikRok Productions

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, 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. IMG_0125All 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.

When in Moab...

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 Folks

We 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. SuperATV Booth with custom Slik Rok RZRs 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.

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 Trails

Between 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. [caption id="attachment_831" align="aligncenter" width="4928"]DSC_1749 SuperATV owner, Harold Hunt, getting ready to hit the trail[/caption]     [caption id="attachment_837" align="aligncenter" width="4928"]DSC_1935 Quite the convoy we had here. 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!

Moab Must-Haves

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. [gallery ids="624,635" type="rectangular" link="none"] Here are the top 11 pieces of gear we added and that you need to crush the rocks at Moab.

11: Mirrors

Sometimes it's the most basic stuff that gets forgotten first. So don't forget to put mirrors on your vehicle! You certainly don't want to be the guy who unwittingly cuts off another rider that's trying to pass (hopefully you don't do too much damage) but side view mirrors are also surprisingly handy when navigating rock gardens. You could hop out and check your tire placement every time your passenger rear tire gets hung up on something, or you could just check your mirror. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build Mirrors  

10: Tinted Roof

Let's not forget that Moab is in the desert. The one thing I'm sure you can find a lot of in the desert is the sun. Before this year's Rally on the Rocks, I would've said you can find heat in the desert too. We protected ourselves from the sun (and also heat theoretically) by outfitting our General with a tinted roof. It'll keep you cool and sunburn free. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build tinted roof

9: Tinted Half Windshield

In Moab, the albedo of the desert terrain can be fairly high at times. That's why we grabbed a Tinted Half Windshield for our General. It keeps the sunlight reflecting off the surface out of our eyes and helps deflect sand and rocks that are heading face-ward while still letting in enough air to keep you cool - which is helpful in our imaginary hot desert. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build Tinted Half Windshield

8: Nerf Bars

Nerf bars are an obvious choice for when you want to do some rock crawling. It's a great way to keep rocks from grinding away the molded plastic on your vehicle's body and to keep you from catching your rear wheels on obstacles along the trail. We threw these on our General so we could have fun slamming into rocks instead of worrying about our custom graphics. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build Nerf Bars

7: Front Brush Guard

Don't be caught dead at Moab without a front brush guard. The stock bumper is OK but we wanted to make sure the entire front end and headlights were protected. So we slapped on our much beefier Front Brush Guard in case our driver decided to go straight into that boulder instead of stopping or, better yet, going around it. #justsendit SuperATV General 4 Custom Build Front Brush Guard

6: 4500lb Winch

The winch is the ultimate crutch for the less-than-ultimate rider, but even expert riders like you can get stuck sometimes.  We wanted to be able to survive even the toughest trails at Moab like Steel Bender and Behind the Rocks, so we outfitted our General with our 4500lb Winch. That way, even if we screwed up, our machine could pull us through.

5: High Clearance A-Arms

High Clearance A-arms are a must for navigating rock fields. The difference these things make when navigating over obstacles is night and day. We wanted to make sure that when we hit the trails with our General, the trails didn't hit us right back. That extra clearance from these a-arms gives us plenty of breathing room. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build HC A-Arms

4: Skid Plate

We knew we would have a bumpy ride at Moab. Even with high clearance a-arms and a 4" Portal Gear Lift (which incidentally comes in at number 2), we wanted to make sure that if we were high-centered, we didn't wreck the underside of our new General. So we bolstered our under-belly with our 3/8" thick UHMW Skid Plate. We use an industrial router to make these, and apart from that, nothing gets through them. Don't forget this one when you go to Moab. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build Skid Plate

3: Healy Fast Series Beadlock Wheels and Intimidator Tires

What tires and wheels to use for the slick rock at Moab might well have been the very first thing you thought about. You need something that won't slip and can handle a variety of trail surfaces from rock to dust and dirt. For that, we chose 32" Intimidator Tires. They can handle just about any terrain that we throw at it and they have enough sidewall flex to get us over the trickier obstacles at Moab. We mounted them to 14" Healy Fast Series Beadlock Wheels because we wanted to run them with a nice low air pressure for maximum grip. Beadlock wheels are an obvious choice for Moab. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build Intimidator

2: GDP 4" Portal Gear Lift

When it comes to rolling over things (like rocks), a 4" Portal Gear lift really makes it a breeze. We knew that the 30% gear reduction it provides would really come in handy as we climbed rock shelves in our General. The extra 4" of lift it provides lets us cruise over obstacles that a stock machine would grind over. And our GDP 4" Portal Gear Lift feels perfectly at home pulling us over rocks at Moab. It brings more power to the ground and the difference you'll feel when battling obstacles is extraordinary. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build GDP

1: Rhino 2.0 Axles

We take our axles very seriously. The last thing we want to break is an axle which can be especially easy to do when your machine is pitted up against the rocks and shelves at Moab. Nothing puts a damper on your day quicker. So we got some Rhino 2.0 Axles to put on our General. They are twice as strong as OEM so we can sit back and relax while we abuse our General and take the difficult routes all day long. If you do decide to stick with stock at Moab, we'll be happy to fix you up with a nice set of Rhino 2.0 Axles when you break them. SuperATV General 4 Custom Build Rhino 2.0 We had a lot of fun with our fully upgraded Polaris General 1000 at Rally on the Rocks in Moab this last week, even if it did get a little cold at times. The trails didn't know what hit them when we came rolling through. To read about our full experience at the event, click HERE.  

Salute to Heroes

Teaming Up for a Great Cause

SuperATV is honored to have the opportunity to team up with @PolarisRZR and @WarfighterMade to raise money through RZR's Salute to Heroes. Warfighter Made is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for injured combat veterans. In the words of Juan "Dom" Dominguez, the vice president of Warfighter Made, their goal is to "give them back the freedom that they gave us." They do this by adapting RZRs and other vehicles to a veteran's specific injury by making concessions for prosthetic limbs or limited mobility. But it doesn't stop there. Warfighter Made always leaves the machine upgraded and personalized when they hand it back to the soldier they're helping. Apart from souping up vehicles, they also broaden their impact by inviting injured and ill veterans on recreational therapy trips. These trips include off-roading, shooting at ranges, and participating in races among other things.  


Warfighter Made is 100% non-Warfighter Made|Polaris RZR| SuperATVprofit and volunteer run and it's awesome! Some soldiers sacrifice their body to protect our freedom, others give so much more. With Memorial Day approaching, now is the perfect time for you to give back a little bit of the freedom that our veterans gave us. Go donate at for a chance to win some amazing prizes! And post using hashtags #RZRLife or #RZRSalutetoHeroes, for each post #Polaris will donate $5 to this campaign!
