    Jimnys, Winches, and Vises, Oh My!

    Jimnys, Winches, and Vises, Oh My!

    This week, Ike and Steve nerd out and do some deep dives talking about things they really love.  First up, Land Rover news, and for once, we're feeling positive about JLR's financials.  Love It, Can't Have It: Suzuki Jimney (at this point, it seems personal, like they really don't want Stephen to ever own one).  A new segment on Mondays called "Winch Wednesdays", because its our show, and no one can stop us! Ike weighs the pros and cons of the Land Rover Hydraulic Winch.  Then, the guys finish the show with a Tip Top Tool Tip all about bench vices, and share more than you ever wanted to know about this versatile and necessary shop tool.

    100th Episode Celebration from Pangolin4x4

    On this week’s episode, Steve surprised Ike to record the 100th episode in person, from Pangolin4x4 in Springfield, OR. They have some well wishes from very special guests, including Jeff Aronson (Rovers Magazine), Geoff Lewis (Seriously Series), Vlado Stec (Heyus Cars), Will Hedrick (Defender of Defenders), Michael Bishop (JLR Classics), Nick Dimbleby (Photographer and Historian), and John Kostuch (Centre Steer Podcast).

    As a special bonus, We put Ike to the ultimate test of his Land Rover knowledge with a new segment called “Taste Your Rover”.

    (We shouldn’t have to say this, but we will anyways: DO NOT INGEST any type of automotive fluid. The stunts performed in this episode are supervised by trained professionals and licensed mechanics…)

    The misadventures of Ike & the pangolin crew in the Nevada desert

    The misadventures of Ike & the pangolin crew in the Nevada desert

    As is tradition for the Pangolin 4x4 team, the motley crew of Ike, Jenna, Linus, Maddi, and Steve Francis embarked on their annual holiday desert excursion. This year’s trip included numerous locations throughout the Nevada desert, down into Death Valley, through numerous mines and ghosttowns. Hear their tales of rescuing a couple in a broken down sprinter van with some less than reliable welding tools. The team tries to recall how many times they needed a winch to get themselves unstuck, and a harrowing descent into Silver Peak. Leave it to Jenna and Maddi to befriend the owner of a menagerie of animals, including camels, pigs, birds, emus and more. Hear all about Ike’s disdain at taking a mud bath near Diana’s Punch Bowl, and Steve’s near-death experience with some faulty headlight wiring. Concluding this episode, Maddi and Steve run the intimidating gauntlet of lightning round questions. This week’s episode packs a punch, with fun tails from the trails.

Love it

Great show! Real Land Rover guys talking about real Land Rovers. Buy the screwdriver set and you won’t regret it

The best Rover podcast ,

Such a great podcast

Love this podcast. I listen to tons of car podcasts, everything from the usual suspects (Spike, Farrah, Behind the Glass, etc etc) — to the auction podcasts from BaT etc — and most of the podcasts that focus on a single marque aren’t great. Porsche-specfic podcasts are exhaustingly self-absorbed and more about some fan club that they’re promoting than the actual podcast. This — by contrast — is exactly the podcast I’d want to make myself. It’s informative. Covers all the models without playing favorites. Great guests. Intelligent talk. Well produced. Deep dives on totally obscure fascinating topics. Historical and current. Yeah, I just love it. Keep up the great work!

great stuff!

My favorite podcast. And it is the absolute best to be driving my Land Rover Series 3 while listening to The Underpowered Hour.
