Off Road Podcast 387 – ABC’s of Off Roading

Tonight, Aaron saves some money, Jeremy falls in love with all seasons, Coy drives some doctors around, & Ben lays down the miles.

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 – Got to test out my wifes new tires.

Aaron – Got the last of the suspension put together.  Had to chase the threads on the upper ball joint.  Replaced the power steering cooler and lines. Finished 3 of the sides of my shop. 

Coy – ice storm essential taxi, spent the day shooting (Are these two things related?)
