In keeping with trying to bring to the forefront all of the available off roading groups around the state, I bring to you today Pirate 4×4, a group that is an online off roading community and the largest off roading website in the world. The Pirate 4×4 group was suggested to us by Barbara Rainey. If you know of a group that we haven’t featured yet, please let us know and we will add it to our list. Please provide the URL with your suggestion. If the site does not have a current website, give us some background information on it and address and we will get it posted.
This group is a large online group that was founded January 7, 1998. There are 1.5 million visits and 18 million page views every month. The primary focus of the site is 4×4 vehicles, but it is an excellent source for anything is off road related. You’ll find event coverage, news, and forums that will keep you up to date on everything. There is also a live webcast that is held the second Tuesday of every month.
The forums are very busy and very popular. There are vendor forums as well as a vendors marketplace where vendors can post items for sale such as axles, armor, tools, and more. There are forums that are for brand specific tech, such as hardcore tech for Jeeps, tech for Hummers, and more. Members will also find event info, trail rides, general tech, land use, trails, regional forums, and just about anything else that they might want to find. Over 186,000 members visit the site regularly, so there is always something new to find.
