    last series in AK sucks..... all talk and no wheeling.

    sad to see they got away from what made them popular in the beginning and dumbed it down for the masses :(

    Wow, you guys are right full of compliments. Considering that it's not done on a Hollywood budget and its provided to you free of charge, I think they did an awesome job.

    Where's your impressive wheeling trip report video? Seriously, I love watching wheeling Tacoma videos.

    Ive been talking to the guys at EO for years on another forum and have even been shown by them their "secret footage" of them blowing shit up like crappy winches etc. What I said here is nothing I haven't already told them.

    Sorry if the truth hurts your feelings, but maybe it's time you man up. This is a truck website after all not some chicks hanging out in a hair salon stroking each others egos.

    As previously stated its a GREAT series, they are just falling out of wheeling more and more, unfortunately. Don't get me wrong I still watch every episode!

    Have to agree with TanaTaco. I still watch them all and it is a good series, but they are falling away from wheeling. It's becoming more of a reality show that will have broader appeal, which is good for the sponsors, but not really why I started watching it.

    Problem they have is that only hardcore wheelers are going to drop coin on things like maxxtrax, Masterpull winch line and ARB gear.

    They're moving away from their base audience to appeal to people who won't be passionate enough to buy their sponsors stuff while most likely increasing Shoebie type watchers, but losing the guys who actually wheel and buy all the high end gear.

    In the end I think the new direction is going to cost them their sponsorships and most likely any chance at a series.

    Only way to really reach a broad crowd with buying power is to go back to Season 1 type adventures and mix in some Jeeps and other manufacture Overland rigs and make the appeal broad across the Expo/Offroad Community as to attract sponsors and viewers who will actually benefit from one another.

    I have watched them all, I agree with beavis, less people, I don't know if its envy or what but I kind of feel odd about people who don't contribute to society but rather drop everything to serve themselves. Its one thing when your old and accomplished but these guys are still young. HOWEVER, good filming somewhat entertaining, and PLEASE... PLEASE get rid of your dang trailer, it slows you down EVERY step of the way. If you need a to bring a trailer you have too much stuff.

    I am sorry if I offended anyone by my comment but it is a personal belief of mine, I felt the same way about "180 degrees south" It is possible to devote a life to offroading and making a contribution to humans. I present you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingsley_Holgate

    Alright thats it...

    I really hope you saw the episode when they did Morrison jeep trail with the trailer attached to the bruiser :eek:
