Tim Hardy: Samurai super star, off-road legend.

We were introduced to Tim Hardy back in 1996, which marked our first trip out to Moab. Back then, being hardcore Samurai guys ourselves, Tim was a bit of an idol for us. Fast forward 16 years, and he’s still one of our idols. His famous red Samurai is virtually unchanged from years past, sporting 35″ tires and a slew of homebrew Hardy inventions like upgraded front axles & birfield drive shafts. While he’s sporting a “few” dents collected over the past 16+ years, there’s still one straight piece of metal on the top vent where the hood meets the firewall. Tim seems pretty determined to change that, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Tim’s been with Ultimate Adventure for 11 seasons now. Safe to say he’s a regular with this group.
