Listener Feedback:

I started listening to FRN podcasts  in February. The name  Tactical Paradise  appealed to my sense of humor and  quickly became my favorite FRN podcast. I knew the Off Road Podcast would be great and  you haven't let me down. (I really like the hiking/backpacking stories, too)

I have a TJ Rubicon and I'm considering taking a LCOG approach to achieve a little extra clearance (fender modifications to run 35" tires and a tummy tuck). From an engineering standpoint I like the idea of maintaining stock suspension geometry but I feel inclined to add longer springs, etc. to also increase wheel travel. I would like to hear y'all's thoughts on this.  I'm in Tennessee and don't plan on doing any extreme rock crawling, just a little extra clearance for these deep mud holes while maintaining a road friendly manner that anyone could handle.

Also, I'm looking for an optic for my AR-15. If I do this I could possibly carry my ACOG in my LCOG haha.  Clint

Greg Says:

I need your advice to pick out a new set of tires for my FJ. I commute and hunt on a lease with sandy/loamy top soil w/red clay underneath. Its a 4x4. I want to try to pick a tire with more off-road capabilities than highway.

Hi Greg,

See the story about the copter crash on the Rubicon yet? Sounds like they all survived  with moderate injuries, 2 walked away.

Good episode on wheels, I could probably be talked into leaving an Itunes comment if you could find me a set of AEV Pintlers in the Silver finish. The trick here is I want the 5 x 4.5 for an LJ, not the 5 x 5 they are making now in the JK pattern.

So far so good on the Offroad podcast. You have a new JK and your brother a new Dodge, damn ballers.......podcasting must be pretty lucrative.  Larry
