IH8MUD began as the license plate on my 1977 FJ40 back in 1992…simply put, living on the shores of Lake Superior meant muddy roads, and I was tired of washing the truck! Some personal online links in the later 90’s simply got out of hand…the site now manages over 800,000 monthly visits from over 425,000 unique visitors.

RockCrawler.com was founded in 1997 as one of the original online resources. It’s monthly ezine was an inbox staple for many offroad enthusiasts. Tie Rod Media took over the reigns in 2009 and has revamped the site into a more immediate offroad resource, still providing team and event coverage, extensive photos, technical reviews and releases and an online forum.

5371_101062799908515_5417997_nUTV Weekly was founded in 2009 as a weekly source for UTV and SxS news.  Coverage includes product press releases, product testing, manufacturer and model coverage, event photos and coverage, and much more with regards to the ever-growing UTV/SxS Market.
