If you thought pirate4x4 was panning this show, you should lookup what Alaskan 4x4ers say about it.

I read every post on this thread: http://www.alaska4x4...warriors&page=8 and while there are some jabs at the production methods, I think most of the reasonable folks come to the same conclusion I did -- it's television. It's meant to entertain, no more, no less.

ROVER1 just posted a Facebook page that has more 'behind the scenes' photos, check it out:

Doh! You tricked me! I wasn't paying attention and clicked the link only to realize it was a facebook page. Now I'm going to get 10,000 MORE emails from facebook asking me to be friends with people I've never heard of!

You should picture me sitting in front of the computer eating Doritos and a can of Coke, shaking my fist at the computer and shouting 'Damn you Facebook!' (nom nom nom)

Cheesy fingers and all the crumbs.

Funny thing is my new phone isn't setup with my Facebook so I haven't checked in yet. I'm having another "PEBCAK" moment according to Jared.

I'll watch it till the end of the race. It's more bearable with Rover 2 for sure, even if Jason is DQ'd.

69 Series 11A and you mean the one I quote from last nights show! " it has a lightweight 4 cyl engine" ha ha! obviously he has never taken one out of a truck? it weighs as much as a small block Chevy .

Those guys are very brave to attempt to do that in a leafsprung rover with stock seats. phew!

The exhaust is on it's way out and hope it lasts the final episode.

We watch but it's getting more difficult with all the "drama" between the "participants". I hope it starts a new trend of shows related to wheeling.
