digital ’con job

YOU SEE IT EVERY DAY. Gaggles of phone zombies standing with their backs to epic scenery and well-known points of interest. Instead of soaking in the sights and noting the experience, they’re staring at their screen and making a sideways peace sign while taking a selfie. It is what it is. Apparently nowadays everybody is “doing it for the Gram.” But those of us born before Y2K might remember a time when we just went out and did stuff without a digital record of every waking moment. Insert old man “back in my day” line here, but we had these things called film cameras that were expensive, cumbersome, and time-consuming. Outside of the SLR camera I used for work, I normally didn’t bother taking film photos of my early wheeling trips,…

2020 defender finally arrives

EDITOR@4WOR.COM After months of teasing us with photos of disguised prototypes, Land Rover finally unveiled its 2020 Defender. There’s a tremendous amount of heritage in the Defender name, and this newest Defender may be somewhat retro in its design, but this is no low-tech throwback. It is built using an aluminum monocoque platform, codenamed D7x, which LR says offers torsional rigidity three times stiffer than a traditional body-on-frame design. Electronics operate the drive systems. A touchscreen controller engages the center and/or rear limited-slip differentials, and an optional Terrain Response 2 system “can recognize the driving surface and configure the vehicle appropriately with no input from the driver,” says LR. Just how high-tech is the new Defender? Within that Terrain Response 2 system is a Wade Sensing program that softens throttle response, switches the…

A letter from Nissan to dealers said the company was “simplifying the Titan lineup to focus our efforts on models that maximize opportunities to attract retail customers in the market for a fullsize truck.” Nissan told dealers to expect a “dramatically refreshed Titan” that will be unveiled at the State Fair of Texas and “a new Titan XD” later in the year. • ACCORDING TO SEMA, BESTOP has partnered with Buy It Installed, a company that leverages technology that enables customers to simultaneously purchase a product and home installation.

• SEMA REPORTS THAT THE Bureau of Land Management has issued a proposed plan and a final environmental impact statement for the Bears Ears National Monument (BENM) over the summer. The management plan was subject to a 30-day public protest period. President Obama established the BENM on December 28, 2016. On December 4, 2017, President Trump reduced the size of the BENM by 85 percent, from about 1.4 million acres to 200,000. The monument is co-managed by the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service, along with a coalition of five local Native American tribes. The proposed management plan includes limited use for off-highway vehicles in designated areas, with no land being designated as wilderness. The BENM is still subject to court lawsuits challenging whether the Antiquities Act allows a president…
