The TrailChasers Podcast

Each week, the TrailChasers Podcast talks to people in our social media network (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc), so that we can learn more about their stories and their adventures. We want to talk to as many people as possible in the offroad, overlanding, and outdoor activity community. Our goal is to meet new people, develop some good relationships, and eventually, meet up out on the trail. If you are a Jeeper, a Toyota lover, or one of those Land Rover lovers, you will find someone in our group that shares your passion. Check us out at www.trailchasers.net

Because Matt and Cody are looooosers, we have to re-run one of our recent shows this week. So, we decided to re-broadcast the first episode Matt was on. New episodes should resume next week.

Today we ask what happened to Cody. He used to be cool. And, we talk about the @empire_jeep_club trunk-or-treat event and the donuts & coffee event @demellooffroad. Oh, and a bunch of complete, absolute, nonsense.

We intended to spend the full episode talking about the Tacoma 3G event in Oceanside. Somehow we get side tracked and spend a significant amount of time talking about Cody's time as a Loss Prevention officer at Mervyn's and Target. We apologize up front for the non-off-road related content...sometimes it happens.

We got the opportunity to speak with Casey Ngo from OC Overland. He walks us through the story of how the OC Overland Family was born and how the open, inclusive nature of the group has helped the community grow so quickly. Ultimately, his advice is to "be nice to everybody" and we absolutely agree with that.

On this episode, we go to the junkyard to find a front drive shaft for Casey's ZJ. Then we speak to Brandon Barbarena, the Supervisor of Light Truck Motorsports and Events for Falken Tire. You may not pick it up in the interview, but Matt and Cody are a little jealous of the life that Brandon lives...#iwanttobebrandon

We start with some listener feedback, including some comments from Cody's Mom. Yes, Cody's Mom listens to the show!

We discuss what Cody should do with the extra $2000 he just got, including some discussion about the @decked system, cold air intakes, and performance chips.

Finally, we discuss our upcoming off road run on September 8th. Where should we go? Maybe we will combine our off road trip with some spooky ghost chasing adventures!

On this episode, we talk about the DTV Shredder from DTVmotorcorp.com (@dtvshredder_global). Matt seems to think he can outrun a motorized vehicle and Cody challenges him to prove it.

Then we do a run-down of what new 4x4's cost to make us feel that much worse about our current financial positions in life...LOSERS! What new off road vehicle would you buy of money was not object?

Today on the show, we are going to talk about buying a used vehicle to turn it in to an off road rig. Why? Because I can’t keep driving my wife’s Renegade, that’s why.

This episode is brought to you by Pelfreybilt Offroad. Pelfreybilt makes high quality armor products for Toyota and Lexus vehicles. I am a proud member of the Pelfreybilt Family. I have the front bumper, rear bumper, and sliders on my truck and I love the confidence and protection it gives me when I am wheeling. Get armored up for your next adventure at Pelfreybilt.com

And By Falken Tire. Falken make a complete line of commercial, consumer, and performance tires for all kinds of vehicles. We love the Wildpeak AT3W’s. I have them on my Tacoma and we put them on Tami’s Grand Cherokee. They perform flawlessly on or off road. Check out the complete line of Wildpeak Tires at Falkentire.com
