Off Road Podcast Episode 162 - Big Tires and Daystars


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, & Joe and also our guest Ian. How’s everyone doing tonight?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Aaron - Spoke to some spring guys and they said to use trailer springs not truck springs for my trailer.  Added some more lights to the top of my rig...150 multi colored LEDs. Should be picking up the LMTV next weekend!  Need to plan a snow run.

  • Ben - Changed an Alternator on the car and a starter on the scooter then ran out of gas

  • Steve - Welded some expanded metal to the sides of the trailer.

  • Joe - Picked up some axles.  Getting parts for the Grand Cherokee.

  • Ian - Bought a new Jeep.  Did a photoshoot with Unofficial Use Only.
