We’re Back. The onX Offroad Build Challenge: 2.0

Join seven teams as they take their rigs from stock to stacked + vote for your favorite to win it all.

We’re stoked to bring you the second official onX Offroad Build Challenge. This year, the challenge premise is the same; just in a new flavor. Each ambassador team is tasked to build a vehicle that can take on technical Rock Crawling and be self-sufficient for multi-day Overlanding. Over seven months, the teams will modify their chosen stock rigs into “RockLanders” using parts from our Elite Brand Partners. They’ll put their final rigs to the ultimate test on The Route to SEMA—a week-long wheelin’ challenge concluding in Las Vegas, NV, for the 2024 SEMA convention.

Wait, wait, there’s more:
We’re opening The Build Challenge to one lucky Wild Card team this year. That could be youfind out how.
