420: US VS Australian Off-Road Vehicles (Aussie Rules)
Jimmy and Tyler are joined by Justin aka AH-Z to discuss the differences between building a vehicle here in the States vs building one in Australia. AH-Z a past Queensland local explains some of the hurdles that it takes to build an off-road vehicle that you’re still allowed to drive on the streets. Apparently, there are many, lots, crazy amounts of rules in Australia that the US doesn’t have. This really does answer some of our questions about why they just don’t build larger rigs for some of their trails.

July’s Monthly Giveaway is with MooseKnuckle Off-Road. They specialize in creating fun and colorful shackles for your recovery systems. I really like their new JOWL RECOVERY SPLIT SHACKLE design that solves the problem of having to remove the shackle or use a soft shackle to hook up a strap. Their dual split J design opens up allowing you to simply attach a strap. We are going to be giving away a fun recovery kit with Moose Knuckle Off-Road so Sign up on irate4x4 SnailSquad to enter.
