I would also say that the progression/evolution of MTB and 4x4 are pretty closely matched. I started playing with trucks in the late 90s, and everything was pretty rudimentary with mediocre performance at best. There was a bit of aftermarket upgrades but not cheap and easy to attain for a young broke kid. I got into BMX as a kid in the 90s, and MTB in the early 2000s, when bikes were starting to get pretty darn good (2003 Kona Stinky Deelux FTW). Nowadays, you can buy something off the shelf for both hobbies and get right onto the trail the same day. Or if you're building a truck, parts are much cheaper and simpler to bolt-on with little mechanical or fabrication know-how. The barriers to entry are much lower as long as you can afford it.
