    Yeah but if you think about it it really shows respect for Toyota if you consider it was their backup when everything else killed the domestic trucks.

    All three American trucks were fully capable of making it there and back, it was the way they were driven by the three idiots that hosted the show. If you abuse any truck like that, the truck will not last, not even a Toyota.

    Great segment!

    The Alaska Episode of Top Gear US was the best ones. The problem is Tanner, and Rutledge are not funny...Adam Ferrara at least can make you laugh but the other 2 sucked. It seems like they tried to hard to be funny, when it should just come naturally.

    I did watch the entire season, and it did have it's moments but it still needs a lot of work. The show visually is there, they just fucked up with their selections of the hosts.
