I'm pretty sure other people will agree with me when I say the show is entertaining but very very edited. Read up on some trip reports on here and watch some YouTube videos made by some local guys. I stopped watching it because it's to fake and dramatized for me. If you would like to enjoy the off-roading Alaska has to offer I would recommend a well planned trip and lots of research. This site has lots of good guys and good knowledge

Dido. Screw the challenge. If you want a real alaska challenge, build a real rig and get up here and explore. Use the forum to set up your trip and have fun.

Howdy everyone. My name's Billy, and I drive an '86 4Runner which goes by the name of "Penelope."


Here how it looks right now. I just went from a 29" MT to a 32" studded snow tire and **** son. Really liking the larger wheels, it just feels a lot better.


And for the summers I use an fj40 bikini top.


I've got a diff drop lift with new UCAs that I plan on installing this summer once i get larger summer tires (not sure if I want a 33" or 35"). I also need to figure out what to do with the rear end whether I want to go ahead and do the chevy springs or just do a little shackle/blocks first just to level it with the front.


Also, uh, I picked up 2 Fj60s from Valdez last fall. A runner and a parts rig.



I'd like to do a SOA on 60 eventually...


Anyways, before I moved up to AK 2 years ago I drove a 1982 Honda Nighthawk 750 and a 1992 Buick Century. These are my first 4x4s lol. Pleasure to meet everyone.

My name is Micah. I'm located in Fairbanks and drive a 1984 Jeep CJ7. I need some drive train and suspension work done, so if anyone knows someone in the area, let me know.

Default New guy here

Hey guys. My name is Kevin. Born and raised here in Anchorage. I am a recovering addict, my clean date is September 13, 2014. I am currently a student at UAA's Community Technical College, working towards a Bachelors degree in Automotive.

I drive a 1991 Suburban 3/4 ton, 350 small-block, 4l80e, 3.73 front and rear, 32" tires. It's basically stock but it is a great starting platform. My immediate plans are;
  • Build a ******* pack leaf spring to beef the front end for a plow.
  • Rear shackle flip.
  • Boss plow mount for the front.

Oh, and a CB radio.







I look forward to meeting and wheeling with all of you.

Hi, Iím David. Iím a web developer living in Ohio. I am a fan of technology, DIY, and homesteading. You can read my blog with a click on the button above.*
. humble owner of a 2000 Ford Expedition and a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder.

I remember the early 80s when you could bomb around Kinkaid Park in an old beat up Subaru, or cruise part of the Anchorage coast with a 4x4, but have never been behind the wheel of any off road madness myself.

New here, and don't do this internet thing much. Series Land Rovers for decades for offroad farm. Don't have time for recreational 4x4 stuff, but will retire in a couple years. Have 8 series Land Rovers in various states of disrepair, and will be fixing/restoring as money allows once retired. Looking to connect with Series owners to trade/buy/sell and talk Rover stuff.
