Minnesota 4x4 Trucks:
Working with local and regional off-road vehicle groups, the SAN defeated amendments to a Minnesota bill that would have limited modified 4x4 trucks to minimally maintained roads and to the area in the state specifically designated for their use. The amendments sought to severely restrict 4x4 truck access by prohibiting use of "trails" and defined 4x4 trucks as four-wheeled motor vehicles manufactured to operate on public roads and subsequently modified with special tires, suspension or other equipment.
