Tonight, Aaron breaks out a grinder, Coy gets a greasy armpit, & Ben turns into a power ranger

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, Coy, my name is Ben and we are joined by Andy from Crankshaft Culture amongst many other things.  Welcome to the show.

Coy – Buying a wheeling buddy.  Found a socket wrench

Aaron – Got the Nissan on the road.  Bleed the brakes 2.5 times.  Tightened the axle nuts. Cut off a skid plate.  Bedded in the brakes.

Ben – Had an extra day off so I pulled the vehicles out of the backyard and winched the truck to the other side of the house.  Decided to finish wiring up rock lights and boy are they pink!

Andy –

I am currently living in Napier (Neigh-pee-air) (where these photos are and where Caleb came to help) met up with Caleb at one point on one of his runs. But we were out doing other missions for other people. So saw this stuff in person everyday for weeks while doing everything we could to help. After seeing all of that the pictures and stories still bring tears to my eyes every time it’s brought up. 

We also want to thank our sponsor Patriot Patch. Head over to and check out their selection of great patches, shirts, cleaning mats, signs , and stickers.  You can also join the patch of the month club for 15 bucks and receive a patch, matching sticker, and artist proof each month.
