Off Road Podcast Episode 126 - Ketchup and Friends

Welcome to the Off Road Podcast. I'm your host, Ben. Today we will be exploring the off road world-- whether you like crawling up rock ledges or enjoy exploring the backroads with your family. Stay with us to find out events in your area, off road news, and topics to interest every guy & girl who craves the outdoors as seen through the windshield. I am here with my co-host Aaron, Steve, and Cameron along with our guest Luke.  How are you guys doing tonight?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Aaron -  Shot my wooden AR.  19 hour camping trip.  Bought a Sig 938.

  • Steve - Got a new tool box.  Sighted in new rifle.

  • Cameron - Minor mods on the truck: 2Low Kit, 6” Exhaust tip, Hurst Shifter. Built JK/Rubi Sliders for my boss’ son’s Jeep. Tested the Off Road Evo Coilover/Long arm at Hot Spring ORV Park. Beginning stages of Moab 2018, including an overland day through Beef Basin, and Elephant Hill.  

  • Ben - Finished priming the bumper and my AR pistol and worked way too much

  • Luke - Haven’t been wheeling lately but got some snowboarding in busy on business trips but managed to put some new sliders on.


Listener feedback

Hey Guys,

I love the podcast! I love the depth of knowledge and expertise showcased in each episode. I am also a huge fan of the manufacturer centric  installments of late. As a Hummer owner and enthusiast though, I was disappointed in the coverage it was given. It was tough to hear only the cliff notes on my beloved rig. Is there any chance you can revisit this topic in greater detail?

Best Regards,



Thanks Zach,

Sorry for our lack of coverage on the hummer. We didn’t really know any true Hummer enthusiasts available, but if we find one we’d like to have them join us to fill out an episode. If you feel you could add to it let us know. We would love to have you on for a listener feature to add to the Hummer information out there.
