The 2012 King of the Hammers is just days away… The event that started the revolution in off-road racing starts this Friday, February 3, with a week long of racing activities in Johnson Valley, CA. Hammertown is the destination as tens of thousands head into the desert to hang out and watch Jeeps, trucks, UTVs, and motos compete in classes throughout the week leading up to the main event on Friday, February 10, as the KOH prepped buggies compete in a mix of high speed desert and hardcore rock crawling to be crowned the King of the Hammers.
Team Desert Concepts have been busy prepping their IFS buggy #4454 for competition. The rig will be sporting a 670HP stroked LS3, TH400 tranny, Atlas 3.0 t-case, custom 10” billet front diff with RCVs, custom 14-bolt rear, center mounted A-arm front, and triangulated 4-link rear, rolling on 42” BFG Krawlers on 20” Forged Walker Evans beadlocks. JT Stephens and Bryan Grigsby are only days away from fitting the new body of this beast and making the short drive out into the desert for KOH.
