OVERVIEW
4-Wheel & Off-Road was published by Petersen Publishing. This was a full format monthly magazine that competed against other similar titles such as Four Wheeler, Off-Road and Pickup Van and 4WD.

The magazine was dedicated to 4x4s and off-road trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Like its competitors, content included 4x4 performance modifications and technical "how-to's", off-road event coverage such as the Baja 500 and 1000, new vehicle evaluations, product evaluations, and travel and lifestyle stories.

Editorial staff were real innovators and kept content fresh with new ideas and features. These included:
