With over 220 exhibitors, hundreds-of-thousands of products on display, industry experts, product demonstrations, informative talks and show specials, the Expo is the ultimate destination for any off-road, touring, towing, fishing or boating enthusiast.

Mickey Thompson Tires will have an extra exhibit outside the main entrance to 4×4 Hall 1 – Mickey’s very own off-road race vehicle, the 1975 US Marines Chevy LUV (Light Utility Vehicle) Truck, which still carries the scars from desert battle racing.
