Off Road Podcast Episode 139 - Warn Interview

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, Steve, & Cameron. How are you guys doing tonight?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Aaron - #thestinkbug bash bar and skid plate are done.  All that’s left before the Gambler is wiring the lights!  Installed new winch line.  Replaced my Fairlead.  Cruise control works great! Went shooting with Ryan Cross of The Gun and Gear Review Podcast, he sunk my battleship. :(

  • Ben - Got a gun trust started and ordered a full size frame for my 1911 along with started working on a knife project. Waiting on weather to stay calm down long enough  to work on Jeep.

  • Steve - Finished the lift on my ranger. Stole the tires from my Suburban for the Ranger. And went shooting.

  • Cameron - Since we last talked: had the MSJ spring run at Hawk Pride in Tuscumbia AL, over 120 rigs in attendance. Rashed the stock rear driveshaft on the JK and put some fresh scratches on the gas tank skid- ordered Rough Country shaft and gas tank skid. I'm surprised at the quality of the USA made shaft. Also picked up a rock light kit new in the box from a club member and it exceeded expectations. And just arrived hours before recording, the new MS6 light switch kit. Want to take a moment and give a special shoutout to a fallen off road enthusiast and Midsouth Jeeps club president Andrew Land. He passed last Wednesday from heart complications and will be missed. Over 200 local Jeeps and off road rigs gathered in funeral procession and several convoys from the surrounding area.

  • Andy - JP mag dirt and drive followed up by EJS and been keeping up with Jeep Beach Daytona followed by heading off to Overland Expo West right after that.

Hi guys, My name is Joseph Haley and I live down here in Oregon. I currently have a 1968 short bed Jeep Gladiator with the Buick 350 and four speed I got for free from a field, I also have a 1983 Jeep Wagoneer with the AMC 258 straight six with only 323,000 miles on the original engine. I also have a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee that has the v8, electronic limited slips front and rear, full skid plating and a lower low range in the transfer case. I just started listening and have a few feedback notes. I have a friend with a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser (oh well I guess we all can't drive Jeeps haha) and he does use it as his family vehicles, having gone to California and Washington a few times with his two kids and wife, great truck, they do look horrible in yellow though! On the International episode (which I very much enjoyed) the second design for the scout 80 is rumored to have been drawn on a napkin. I have also heard that the reason they rust so much is because the sheet metal supplier they purchased from sold metal that was stored indoors at a premium which International could not afford. I am working on the backlog of shows and have enjoyed them very much. I will send a picture of my Wagoneer in an adjoining email. Thanks guys, look forward to more episodes (an episode on military trucks would be awesome btw).

Announcement: we are looking for contributors to the show another perspective never hurts and that what helps the show roll on.
