Welcome to the Off Road Podcast!!  I am your host Greg Bakken and joining me again today is my not so lovely co host Jeff Bakken...This is the podcast for all things offroad.  Whether you're looking for Sunday jaunts on fire roads or hard core rock crawling, we will cover it all. What's up Jeff?

Listener Feedback:

Loved the off road podcast. It's good to hear some more like minded guys talking rigs. And if you ever get down to Arizona, let me know. Will

Thanks Greg and Jeff for the awesome debut of your new podcast.

I am looking forward to this podcast as I just purchased a 2014 JK Unlimited Sport. I put a Rugged Ridge 2" hitch on it so I could load my Thule Apex bike rack on the back. Today I'm waiting for the Fed Ex man to show up with my Console Vault so I can stow my Glock 30S when I can't carry it in the politician's designated areas.

I would like to upgrade the wheels and tires to make it a Mall-Crawler/G.O.O.D. vehicle. I'm not r eady to off-road it as I have 75 more monthly payments and Wife would not be happy.

Here's my question, can I put 12/33's on it without having to lift it? I really want the 12/35's but I know I would have to lift it 3-5 inches.

One more question, if I do decide on the 35ers, what's the best lift kit to keep that factory drivability? I love the TeraFlex videos but what do you know about their quality.

Thanks again and I look forward to the next podcast.

Hey, I listened to the new pilot episode for the 4x4 podcast. I liked it, looking forward to hearing more in depth info on it.  I am going to tell a good friend about it, he use to own a 4wd shop locally and I think he will like it.

Hey guys,

I'm listening to the Off Road Podcast as I write this, and I want to let you know that it's got my vote.

I'm actually in Placer County, very close to where the guys live, so I can relate to everything they're talking about. In fact, I recently put a nice "badge of honor" on my Nissan Titan, while trying to maneuver my way to Eagle Lakes, in the Fordyce area.

Keep up the good work, and make this show happen!

Thanks, Freeman

Hey I shoot with JW and he got me hooked on the podcast, i enjoyed the offroad podcast and i have owned 12 or more jeeps, mostly XJs and willys trucks, and i currently have a deuce and a half m35a2 and a CJ5 i have looking like a military jeep and I mount a 1919A4 on, a nice combination of a love of wheeling and guns! If you want someone to talk about deuce's on the show hit me up. I’m getting ready to bob mine and i have done a lot to it already.
