Off Road Podcast Episode 200 - I’m Dreaming of Some White Wheeling

Welcome to the Off Road Podcast. 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 your host Ben here with my co-hosts Jeremy, Aaron, and Steve. How’s everyone doing?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Ben - Busy family life did an oil change and planning on welding bumper together this weekend maybe even getting lift installed.

  • Jeremy - Changed the oil in the bike after the last ride.

  • Aaron - Took advantage of the black Friday sales and bought a couple AR-15 complete lowers. Haven't gotten my son's dirt bike running yet. A piece that is cast to the engine block is broken. I will JB Weld it. If that doesn't hold I'll need a new engine.

  • Steve - Got my front lights figured out. Got a driver side seat belt, waiting on the passenger side. Got the new hood on. Put a new thermostat in it. Sucks driving to work with everything iced over.  All in all I am really happy with how it's coming along.
