This year has started to be the best yet, beginning with Jeep Safari! We had 5 companies come forward in a big way to support us as Official Sponsors:
MasterPull is our Official Recovery Gear, Superchips is our Official Programmer, BFGoodrich Tires is our Official Tire, Superior Axle & Gear is our Official Axle & Gear, and Rukkastixx is our Official Energy Product. We had 2 corporate customer appreciation events where we led their trail rides and provided a Texasmoke bbq catered lunch: “The Rock 9” hosted by Superior Axle & Gear – Full Traction Suspension – Bushwacker Body Gear and Superchips on Monday. Then the Dynomax Performance Exhaust – Rancho Suspension – Bestop – BFGoodrich Tires event on Wednesday where in addition to their guided trail ride and catered lunch, we brought in a masseuse to relax those tense trail muscles.
CRAWL Magazine hosted their 3rd Annual Reader’s Ride on Tuesday and it was awesome with about 400 rigs in attendance by lunchtime!!!
We had vendors on site for people to hang out with, Texasmoke bbq for people to grub on, and lots of trails for people to enjoy. We can’t thank CRAWL enough for getting people to come out and experience AreaBFE. We look forward to continuing to work with them on their pro-access land use efforts.
Thursday and Friday were just like any other fun day in sun at AreaBFE with the exception of Night Wheeling both nights and pre-running for Saturday’s race on Friday morning! Saturday’s WeRock/Dirt Riot race was our first race in 6 years and it was very well attended! The weather was gorgeous and we had approximately 800 attendees plus racers and their support. Attendees said that it was great to have a race again at AreaBFE and the response from the racers was that they found the course to be tougher than expected. We liked both of those responses and we’re already talking about how to make it a better show for next year!
The staff at AreaBFE would like to thank members from Moab Friends-for-Wheelin’ and the Grand Mesa Jeep Club for all of their efforts in establishing new trails and installing our new signage. We would like to thank Rocky Mountain Extreme (RME4x4.com) for supporting our presence on the internet, and a special thanks to MasterPull, Superchips, BFGoodrich Tires, Superior Axle and Gear, and Rukkastixx for their huge support this year. We wouldn’t be able to continue our mission without the help of our Trail Sponsor: TrailReady Beadlocks; our Banner Sponsors: Advance Adapters, ARB, Axial Racing, Bistein Shocks, Howe Performance, KC Hilites, Larry H Miller Jeep – Sandy UT, Macs Custom Tie Downs, Savvy Offroad, Warn Industries, Powertank, and Reel Drivelines; Thanks to our Product Sponsors: Crowne Performance, Energy Suspension, Koronis Parts, Olympic 4×4 Products, Painless Performance Products, 4x4sPod, Tuffy Security Products, and Warrior Products. Please support those companies that support us!!! Last but not least, thank you to everyone who came out for a good time, gave a donation and/or bought some of our apparel!!!
We would like to extend an invitation to enjoy this park while visiting Moab, Utah, and please help us out by policing this place on an honorary basis.
The more support we get from others like us, who have a love for the outdoors, the better we can serve you in providing a fun and hassle free place to play!

Superchips Signs as Official Sponsor of AreaBFE Off Road Park
JANUARY 20, 2012 – Today Superchips announced that they have signed as an Official Sponsor of the AreaBFE Off Road Park outside Moab, UT. Superchips will be designated as the “Official Programmer” for 2012 and will work closely with the group that established the park in 2004 to ensure the private land remain open to all, 365 days a year. In addition to helping promote AreaBFE’s world class venue year-round, Superchips plans to be on site for the annual Easter Jeep Safari and will be co-hosting a customer appreciation event at AreaBFE with Superior Axle&Gear and Full Traction Suspension. Superchips will make an official check presentation at this event amongst many of their industry peers, customers, and alliance partners.
The announcement is another exciting piece of news for the off road community as Superchips continues to support enthusiast groups, and corresponding organizations and venues, that work to ensure private land is protected and wheeled upon responsibly. Superchips Executive Vice President, Tom Bennett stated “AreaBFE is a world class off road park located in one of our favorite places – Moab, UT. The group of guys who took this vision and made it in to a reality have done all of us a great service.” Bennett continued, “We have been attending Moab for several years and having the opportunity to visit and wheel at AreaBFE is a tremendous experience. Superchips is proud to do their part to ensure that this land will remain protected and open, to all, for many years to come.”
“We are honored that Superchips has stepped up to support our efforts here at AreaBFE!” said Olaf Kilthau, Managing Member at AreaBFE. Olaf went on to say “We host numerous events throughout the year, catering to variety of vehicle makes, and Superchips’ pledge helps to keep our land open and accessible for them everyday. Our team is excited to leverage this partnership and we are sure everyone that has a chance to bring their vehicles to AreaBFE will benefit from this relationship.”
AreaBFE is a 320 acre recreational park that facilitates many different outdoor activities. The park was developed by a group of guys who had a vision in 2004; “Create a place where people could go without the threat of being kicked-off of a fun little playground and insure that people will always have a place to recreate!” Since then, the AreaBFE staff and volunteers have been working to make trails, camping areas and many other fun destination points on the property. This project has reassured faith in the OHV community and the values these people hold close to their hearts. Learn more about AreaBFE at www.areabfe.com.
Superchips is the industry leader in automotive tuning for late model cars, trucks, and Jeeps. Founded in 1983, Superchips was one of the first companies to specialize in tuning vehicles with computer controlled fuel-injection systems.
