The only ones wheeling with their heads is the brother sister team. Everyone else is headed for carnage.

This show is a disgrace to the OHV community. It is behavior like this that gets our public land and parks closed. This show is fake and a bunch of scripted BS. Everyone here at JF should be upset at how the OHV community is being portrayed as destructive A-holes that will trash anything that gets in their path. The general public doesn't understand that this is not how we behave on the trails. I will be boycotting this show and any of its sponsors. We have worked too damn hard to repair image to have it destroyed so some cable channel can try to get some ratings boost. Absolutely disgusting.

Im just waiting for the Land Rover to finish blowing up. I know it's not right what they're doing to the land, but I do enjoy watching *******es beat the crap out of their vehicles. Why on earth someone would try to wheel 4 cylinder Toyota is beyond me (in that terrain). That thing sounds terrible.

I agree, its not going to give the general public a good impression of what we are all about. I can say it is better, at least at this point, than I had figured it would be but it is a reality program and that requires drama to be successful (thanks to the general public). It was nice that they did mention trend lightly but it would have been much better to have shown it rather than that B____ch session they had. To start with, how did he bend his tie rod? He went on about damaging trees but scraping the bark on one side of the tree is not going to kill the tree, cutting it down will. The other problem I had with it was how much they put down the lower 48'ers, why do people have to put other people down who share the same interests, does it make them feel better about them self?

On the show's Facebook site several people said they are from that area and have run those trails. They all said that the first trail they did on the show normally only takes about a hour to run, not 8.

Well said sir!

I made it through 1 1/2 episodes, but I belive I'm done watching the show. I had hopes, maybe a bit too high that this "reality" show might be good. That perhaps scenery, respect for land/trails and a positive light on anyone who enjoys wheeling as a hobby - whether it be a 4wd, atv, motorcyle, etc. Instead there is a mullet wearing redneck, a dude that is a 3rd rate version of a 1993 Tommy Lee (Motley Crue) and bunch of other clowns.

Yeah I get it's a race to the finish, but the only team that seems to be wheeling "correctly" is the brother/sister team and of course that aren't invovled in the drama so they get little air time.

Super Jeep (especially the part driving through the forest) of a Simpsons episode about the Canyonero.

I really don't know what everyone is going on about. I've watched both episodes. There was one point where they ran over/into tree branches that were blocking the trail and would have been cut down anyway. All else is pretty typical stuff if you've ever been offroad.

They aren't running off the trails, and they aren't causing anymore damage than any other offroader.

I agree with you, nothing out of the ordinary to me.

Only thing that bothers me about the show is that too many of the vehicles are Japanese nameplates. Like to see a Ford or Chevy in the mix instead of the ring-ding stuff, but that's just my bias: don't like Asian vehicles whatsoever. The Defender is cool though.
