Off Road Podcast 354 – Trail Breakdowns

This episode of the Off Road Podcast is Sponsored by WARN, Medical Gear Outfitters, and Colby Valve.

Tonight, Aaron takes a number, Jeremy does nothing, & Ben does some Macgyvering.

Welcome to the off-road podcast. A podcast about everything off-road. We cover the news, review products, and interview people in the off road industry.  Your hosts tonight are Aaron, Jeremy and my name is Ben.  Welcome to the show.

Jeremy – Nothing. I drove a golf cart. Cart path only

Aaron – Went Camping at the coast in a numbered campground. Fed a deer jelly beans.

News brought to you by Colby Valve

  • Autoblog – F-150 Raptor breaks mans back
    • Front suspension system notably offers 14 inches of travel
    • Truck’s owner, who goes by Caz
    • Raptor rapidly approaching a jump, catching a good amount of air, and landing on four wheels
    • I aimed for 60 [mph] but it may have gotten beyond that as I wasn’t looking at the speedometer
    • Smooth jump but unfortunately I landed a perfect pancake
    • Doctors repaired his vertebra with two rods and six screws
    • Truck is fine but he isn’t
    • He wasn’t the only off-roader that landed in the hospital with a back injury. He added that the driver who hit the same jump at about the same speed in an identical truck right after his run was hospitalized with a fractured spine as well.
  • Inside EVs – Jeep Magneto 2.0
    • 625 hp and 825 lb-ft
    • 70-kilowatt-hour battery pack, comprised of four different cells that are spread out for better weight distribution
    • Six-speed manual transmission sourced from a Charger Hellcat
    • Dropped first gear ratio from 5.13 to 3.36
    • Rock-Trac transfer case to give the Magneto optimal torque at all four wheels
    • Dana front and rear axles and massive King coilover shocks
    • Wheelbase is 12 inches longer than the standard two-door JL, and it rolls on 40-inch rubber
    • Low-end torque and negotiating tricky rock formations
    • Clutch works only to move the shift knob between gears, otherwise, it doesn’t serve much of a purpose. And with so much available torque, you could feasibly start the Magneto in any gear to get it off the line
    • Magento’s brake regen worked better than any of those that I’ve tested. And with the added benefit of recouping range in the wild, it’s a true win-win scenario.
