1st Cover, Sept 1999
C4x4 is a family friendly online 4x4 magazine that was founded in 1999 through an orginization called 4wheelers 4Christ. A couple of the group members decided they wanted to create an online magazine that focused on great off-road information and content while having the back bone of Christian principles and values.

For more than 16 years now, we have brought our readers stories, projects, events, activities, product reviews, and promotions. We do our best to bring you straight forward information on the off-road industry while keeping our content and events something the whole family can enjoy. Our goal is to get you to the web content fast so you will never see pop up ads getting in your way when you're just here to read articles or check out some cool pictures. We do work with sponsors and give them appropriate ad space so you can follow to their sites, but we do it in a non impactful way, giving you a great reading experience on our page.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to also check out our Facebook Page and to follow #C4x4_Magazine on Instagram!

You can also pick up a C4x4.com die cut sticker to run on your rig! They are only $5 each and are available in multiple colors!
