Discover the World of UTVs at Backcountry Life

At this website, we are passionate about all things UTV (utility terrain vehicle). Also known as side-by-sides, these off-road vehicles are perfect for work and play. Whether you are using your UTV for farming, hunting, or just exploring the great outdoors, there is a model out there that can meet your needs.

My name is Sam and I am the owner and operator of this UTV website. I have been obsessed with motorized vehicles since I was a kid, when I somehow managed to drive a snowmobile down a sinkhole (don’t try that at home, kids). Growing up on a horse farm, I always dreamed of having a side-by-side UTV or ATV to make the hard work a little more fun. It wasn’t until my 20s that I was finally able to make that dream a reality and we purchased our first side-by-side, a 2008 Yamaha Rhino 700 special edition.

Fast forward a few years and our UTV collection has grown to include a Polaris six-wheeler, a Honda Pioneer 1000-5, and a Can-Am Defender Max Limited. We use our side-by-sides for everything from hunting to accessing the backcountry and we have had so many adventures and memories in these amazing off-road vehicles.

At this website, we aim to share our knowledge and love for UTVs with others. We will bring you information on the latest models, best UTV accessories, tips and tricks for maintenance and upkeep, and stories of our own adventures in our side-by-sides. Whether you are in the market for a new UTV or just looking to learn more about these versatile vehicles, we hope you will find something of value here.

So whether you are a seasoned UTV enthusiast or just getting started in the world of off-road fun, we hope you will join us on this journey and follow along as we learn, explore, and have even more adventures in our UTVs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sincerely, Sam
