still would've saved them a ton of time to just use the hilift handle to keep the tire from coming too far out.

I'll watch it again. But I'm 95% sure that's after they put it back in gear when they were watching out for the drop off to the water..

Worst part of this episode was watching them struggle with the wheel walking off the axle. Yet, they could have quickly used the handle. Then the British dude axes up a tree...

I think it's funny that Gary does all the work and all Bill thinks about is FOOD. It's kind of irritating that they say he's an extreme off road driver but he drives like a newb.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours... if you know what I mean.

I don't like the actors at all they annoy me. I only watch the show because I enjoy watching a jeep be pushed to its limit and still keep going.

Finally caught the second show. Same as the first; It was entertaining, but seems to miss its potential. I fear that unless the next 3 episodes change how the show is going, there won't be anymore after #5. I'm sure Wu is a nice guy and is very knowledgeable, but the way he is scripted/portrayed on the show makes him come across as the weak link. At the end of the first show I told my wife that I hoped that "I really need a steak" thing would not become his tagline. Sigh.

Replace Wu with an additional british spec. ops. guy and baby, you got a show goin'.

Not exactly its limit except the episode when the axle came out of the housing and he dragged a log the rest of the way.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours... if you know what I mean.

Easier too with the stock wheels and narrower tires they are running.

When I saw him shape the tree - i thought that's what they were doing. Maybe the expected wheel travel was too large for this... I doubt that though.

That's like saying you wish your boyfriend was a bit less gay.

I'd think he'd want him to be a bit more gay...
