Listener Feedback:

Greg I'm a fan of Alaska off road warriors.Don't cave to the hosers who have an elitist attitude,superior rigs,and claim to be off road masters able to conquer any obstacle with ease.

Granted these guys on the show are a little hoakie and red neck but they are also just regular joes that I see and associate with out on the trails every year.  Their rigs are simple and inexpensive but capable of a lot of off road fun .You Don't need 40s,dynatrac axles with ARBs front and rear and amazing gears to go out on the trail be safe and have fun.o yea and spend 10,20 30 thousand in the process.  The show may be flawed in some regards but it's real off road adventure,the Alaska scenery is stunning and to those on the show I'll bet it will be the adventure of a life time.  Hey just my take,love the podcast keep it  going.


Main Topic: Toyota Talk

Greg and Jeff,

To take you up on the additional help from my Toyota question in episode 27 I'm sending additional details on the truck

(This is the Toyota from Episodes 15 and 19 too)

'84 stock Toyota SR5, 4x4, 22R, 5 speed.  I will keep the engine and transmission on it.  I want to run something on the order of 35-37-" Tires.  I would like a good amount of lift, but nothing ridiculous.  This will be a road legal rig, but not a daily driver.  (Just enough to where I don't have to haul it if I don't want to, but I don't need all the creature comforts that you have in a daily driver.)  Regearing seems like the way to go, I think I'll go with 5.29 unless you think something else is better.  I may also drop an EFI unit on it too to gain a few horses.

Plans for the rig: some 4x4ing, hunting, fishing and Search and Rescue.  Additionally I have no CARB requirements here in WY.

Thanks from the Wilds of Wyoming,
