Ares, one of the twelve original Olympians was known as the god of war. He represented the physical valor necessary for success in war, he was a dangerous force, “overwhelming in battle” leading a destructive manslaughter force of pure power. Fear and Terror were yoked to his battle chariot. As Olympus has grown and developed, the need for a reliable powerful adequate tow/ support vehicle has been known. We would like to introduce the newest member of Olympus Off Road. Ares is a 2008 Ford F350 powered by a 6.4L Diesel V-8. Ares is 4wd and has a black diamond plated flatbed with Locking Tool boxes. Ares has a headache rack and a built front bumper/ grill guard. Ares will be outfitted with a wide array of Zeus Lights and 12,000Lb winch mounted to a removal plate for use in the front or rear. Ares is the vehicle to support Olympus in everything the future holds!!!
“We are members of a team, and we rely on the team, we defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion”
Olympus Off Road is a Developing Race Team that will be competing in the Ultra 4 series, King of the Hammers and the WE Rock Dirt Riot Series. We have a portfolio of products that is continually evolving to meet the demanding needs of the Off Road Industry.
Although the Olympus Offroad Race team officially began in 2012 it has been a vision in progress for over 10 years. In 2002 Daniel Sach Purchased a 2001 Jeep Cherokee and never looked back. The jeep was built with the intention of eventually running open dessert style racing. 4.56 gears were matched to lockers and Custom long Arms. The engine was stroked from 4.0 to 4.7 and a supercharger found its home under the hood. The engine made and estimated 350 HP and could move the 35” all terrains with no problem. The Jeep sat on a 4” Rustys off road lift kit with many more modifications.
The Cherokee eventually left and was eventually replaced by a 2000 Jeep Cherokee in 2008. This jeep would go through many modifications to become the jeep it is today. A 1988 YJ finds its home next to the XJ and has seen its share of modifications itself. The YJ sits atop a Dana 44 front axle and a rear Eaton HO72 resides in the back. 4.56’s gears and lockers help the Jeep push the 37” Good year MTR’s up rocks and ledges and Bilstein shocks help the spring over leafs to absorb the shock of jumps and hard landings. A 1975 Jeep CJ showed up in the garage and has been going through extensive modifications to become a linked buggy on 38.5” Super Swampers.
In November of 2012 Olympus Offroad sponsored the build of #4526 racing at the King of Hammers everyman’s Challenge. Though it raced and blew its engine at mile marker 3 the buggy would move on to other things and is no longer apart of Team Olympus. Team Olympus is currently Building a Ultra 4 4500 Stock Mod Buggy and a Ultra 4 4600 Stock Buggy.
There is still a lot of work to be accomplished but Olympus has proven it has what it takes to be successful. Countless hours building and tuning will yield results
