Off Road Podcast Episode 131 - Rogue Overland


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-hosts Aaron and Steve.  How are you guys doing tonight?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Aaron - Didn’t make it out camping.  I went wheeling at Tahuya ORV instead with folks from the forum.  Ben and I put some work in on the Beetle. Was on the Nissan Nation Podcast.

  • Steve - Went shooting to test some new reloads.  Got to put the new 4 wheeler to good use running to and from the long range targets.

  • Jeep Joe - Put new antenna on my Jeep.

  • Ben - worked on the #thestinkbug with Aaron.  Got a foot of snow so I played with my Jeep and made a lady mad when I got stuck and she offered to help.  Tow hitch, bike rack that will turn into tire carrier, finished lift, fixed headlight wiring, built lightbar brackets, & mounted the roof rack “basket”.  Also, we changed the name again for #thebeetleproject.  Was #therottenegg now #thestinkbug  Took the #thestinkbug for a quick drive.  Got some strange looks and a wave from a WRX.

  • Nick - Just finished the Winter Overland Expedition.  Doing lots of rig maintenance.


We’ve got a new sponsor.  You heard Jeep Joe on our show 2 weeks ago and again this week.  He works for a Jeep dealership in Minnesota and and convinced his boss to sponsor our podcast with some of their advertising dollars.

Park Chrysler Jeep is the Wrangler destination in Minnesota. We are the only AEV dealer within 500 miles. Park not only sells Wranglers, we up fit them and accessorize them tailored to your individual needs, wishes and dreams. Our service department has specialized technicians that love to build your dream. Our parts department carries more inventory than any other dealer in the mid-west. We have multiple Customer experience managers that have up to 20 years of experience up fitting and accessorizing Wranglers. Park also hosts several off road customer events. Jeep isn’t just a passion for us, it’s a way of life. Should you not be close to our location in the Minneapolis suburbs, we can ship your parts or your entire vehicle. Don’t be bashful, give the guys that enjoy your jeep as much as you do a call. It’s a Jeep thing and we understand. Also mention you are a listener to the Off Road podcast and get $250 off your Jeep it’s not a ton but that could be an upgrade.
