Love the show! I have been listening to back episodes all day at work for several weeks trying to catch up.
Got my first jeep, a 1980 CJ7 in the late 80s. Shortly after that my wife left me! So for several years after that I ran Toyota 4WD pickups and 4Runners instead! And wife version 2.0 stayed with me! But I never lost that loving feeling for jeeps.
Since I am now in my early 50s, I decided it was time for a mid-life crisis. But instead of having a fling with a younger woman, getting divorced and losing half of my life savings, I thought getting another jeep might be cheaper. Boy was I wrong!
I picked up an 02 TJ and am slowly upgrading it and making it mine. And wife version 2.0 is still with me! She has even ridden with me a few times in it, and actually doesn't hate it. And the comments about spending more money on "that damn jeep", are growing fewer and fewer! I picked a winner. Oh, and I picked a good wife 2.0 too. (Love ya honey.)
Anyway, love the show, the banter and the humor. Especially like the tech talks. I am going to hate getting caught up, as listening to the show really makes the day fly by. You guys (and lady) keep up the great work!
Technical difficulties forced us to reschedule this interview until today. Steve Howard “4.3LXJ” xjtalk.com member and moderator joined me in a one and one half hour show to discuss his childhood, first 4×4 and some of the more challenging concepts about drive train and tire traction both on and off road.
Great having Mark from DETOURS (http://www.detoursusa.com/) on the show. 41 minute interview on how Mark got started in metal working, and how he got into Jeeps, and then Jeep Cherokees. We discuss pretty much every product he makes and sells from his site. I’ve got future interview commitment from Mark, because his Jeep XJ build alone should be good for a half dozen shows!
As always your feedback is important to how good our shows can be. If you haven’t attended a live show, consider it as the chat room, and interactive nature of the live show adds a whole new dimension to the entertainment and perhaps you’ll think of a question that I didn’t ask our guest!
