    Alaska Off Road Warriors (TV Show)

    I have seen the first two episodes. One Jeep, One Defender 90, two 4Runners and a Toyota LC 50 Series making the way off road from the Pacific Ocean to the Arctic Ocean.

    I am watching to see who breaks what each episode. So far the Rover bent his tie rod and dropped his rear drive shaft. He used the winch to straighten the tie rod and had a spare drive shaft.

    Lots of trail damage, but the winner takes all of $100K for the lowest total time.
    Lots of mud.

    I am sorry that everyone cannot own a Hummer; some folks have to drive a Jeep or a Toyota.

    I recorded them but have been out wheeling and have not watched them.
    Maybe a marathon viewing over the holidays.

    I believe that we could make it; I just don't know how fast. These guys seem to be a bit crazy and really pushing to the limits. Lots of spinning tires; just waiting for a snap of the CV joint(s).

    I tend to go slow and steady rather than driving like I have a tiger by the tail.

    I think an H3 can make it, One of the 2 yotas are IFS. Those dirt roads we could literally blast down faster then them IMO from what it seems like on TV. I have not seen one thing we couldnt do, only thing of concern to me was the sand in the beginning and the river crossing, that thing was roaring. I would prefer a lift on the H3. Most of them are lifted putting a stock height (even torsion crank) H3 at an unfair advantage. I have no doubt a rancho lift H3 or even my SAS H3 (fair game seeing the one 4runner was SASed) would have no issues.

    The superjeep guy is on pirate and owns a 4x4 company where he retrofits dana 70 gears into dana 60s, dana 50 gears into dana 44s, etc. He seems like a cool dude, his rig is a monster but seems tamed down for the show. The limit is 37s so he threw on 37s but normally he runs 47s or 49s(in the show they stated he was running a different size but on pirate he said he was running 37s) The thing is ugly, a 25in stretch on an old ass jeep but its like a swiss army knife. Very versatile

    The only thing I dont like about the show is that it portrays us wheelers as a bunch of rednecks who wanna destroy ****. The Rover guy flipped out on Super jeep guy for driving over tree limbs saying hes killing the environment, just gives the greenies more crap to bitch about. Butch, the dude with the mullet is screaming out the damn window making all of us looking like idiots. Lastly the injury, where the dudes arm got rug burn by the steering wheel whipping back on his arm seems like BS.

    Either way I am glad to see an off road show airing...

    Wheeling cool, but like everything else, I could take or leave the people. I wish they could find entertaining people without grabbing obnoxious white trash ****ers that make my skin crawl every 2 sec.

    What network is this circus on? Sounds like a nice way to kill an evening on the Roku.

    I dunno, it actually looks like a heck of a lot of fun. Though the cast members - yeah, they're all playing to their type-cast - the pretentious Land Rover owner, the meth-hicks, the type A drivers, and the outsider who's going to teach the Alaskans a valuable lesson in how everyone should get along - and not to adversely judge outsiders.

    with that said, that Jeep is a POS.

    I haven't seen it. Too cheap for cable or satellite. If you're looking for an alternatie, I've been watching the JK Experince Wild Wild West trip from Wayalife. Even though they just YouTube videos, they could pass for actual professional productions. Plus, they do what TV shows don't- they accurately represent wheeling AND the camaraderie behind it.

    anything on Expedition forum is better... but it's off-road, so I watch it, sue me.

    That POS has the strongest drivetrain out of the group. Jana 76 axles with 300M shafts, ARBs, SM420 trans with a Ranger OD, 4:1 D300 t-case, 5.89 gears, and a PTO winch.
