I WANT TO RACE HAMMERS
Josh sat with me at my house's counter bar and we had a dreaming session. I asked him, "What is the one thing that we could do with this brand that you don't think is possible?"

TRIBE 16 IS BUILDING OUR RACE CAR
When Off The Grid founder Josh Patterson decided to go on this crazy journey of racing King of the Hammers, he explained why there was no team he wanted on his side more than Tribe16: "They are the experts and they've been at this a long time. I wanted to know from Adam and Lance what they thought we should do with our first race car. I can't begin to explain the level of trust I have in the Tribe16 team." Tribe started in a 2-car garage in 2010 with some hand tools and a desire to build cars and parts to help people go faster and farther. Now located in the heart of Fort Worth the Tribe has grown in every way, but the idea is still the same. Everyone here is an enthusiast, racer, rock crawler, trail rider, or over lander, with years of experience and ready to help you realize the full potential of your rig, no matter your needs.
