OVERVIEW
4-Wheel Drive & Sport Utility magazine was published by McMullen & Yee Publishing in Anaheim then later Placentia, California. The company had a large portfolio of magazines including Street Rodder, Popular Cars, Mustang Illustrated and VW Trends.

Re-titled from the bi-monthly magazine 4WD Action, numbering continued from its predecessor. For the first 9 issues, the new title was 4WD & Sport Utility which allowed a bridge from the old to the new by keeping "4WD". With the March, 1992 issue, the title became 4-Wheel Drive & Sport Utility. The magazine remained on a bi-monthly schedule until September, 1994 when it went monthly.

Content focused on off-road and general four-wheeling with articles covering "how-to" technical tips, major racing and off-road events, new truck reviews, feature rides and adventure articles.

Mr. McMullen died in a tragic accident in February, 1995. A few months later, 4-Wheel Drive & Sport Utility was sold as part of a larger transaction to K-III Inc. for $55 million.
