    Riz, I just watched it and that Blazer Kicks Butt!
    As they said, "No trailer queen here"
    They did some nice mud and only stuck it once.
    Man, now I know why I'm spending all that money on my truck.
    SWEET....... you have got to see it.
    Thanks again [​IMG]

    my favorite part was that they let you hear the fenders bouncing off their allterrain tires every time they hit the slightest bump.
    those guys are complete morons without the slightest clue on wheelin', they need to replace them with a couple bimbos in bikinis.
    love the 'tech questions' segment where brainstorm answer the hard ones from readers mail

    I definately did notice the tire rubbing sound effects.. but if that means you dont have a clue, well then there are a lot of clueless people around. besides, what would be worse, them editing that part out? or not doing the segment at all? at least it was a blazer and not a jeep or something

    Not like it matters...but if anyone taped it, can they see if that was tire rub or, radiator-to-fan shroud noise? Can't remember if they ran belt-driven fan or electricc. Could SWEAR I heard the tell-tale fan noise when he dropped into the river! From sad experience, it sounded familiar....anybody notice the whole front clip bouncing around a bit? Did they do a body lift?

    The noise sounded like v-belt or serpentine belt squeal from water. I forgot which belt system they chose but as the water splashed up it made the sound then went away (and the only time I heard the noise is as they went through water), which is why I believe it was "belt squeal" and not the fan hitting the shroud or tire rubbing the fender. The tire did hit the fender, but I don't think that is the squeal we heard (tire rub is usually a lower frequency sound, or at least it was in my case).
    As for the show and/or the truck not being good....well I guess everybody is entitled to their opinion, but compared to everything else on tv. I thought it was pretty cool. Granted there are vehicles out there that will kick it's butt, but not your average everyday drivers. Plus they could have just built it to be a trailer queen, but decided to wheel with it. Granted they could have done "tougher" trails, but then again they could have also left it on the trailer. Many people complained about the 10 bolt they used in the front (many said they should have done no less than a D60), but it wasn't your everyday 10 bolt and it was equipped with an ARB. They aren't going to run any ARCA courses so for what "their intended use" of the truck was, it was a good choice. Again some of the segments are a little laim (but there is a section of the market that likes that) but overall I think it is a decent show. Just look at "Crank and Chrome", they are starting to work on lowered imports. There is nothing wrong with that, as there are a lot of the "next generation rodders" that are hopping them up (like the Fords, Chevs, and Mopar's of yester year), but I would rather watch a show that features "Big Blaze" than "Blazin' Type R". Again it's a matter of opinion, but the show is getting high ratings. They have to walk a fine line, show new stuff (as that is what brings in advertisers and $$), while working on the older stuff with "duct tape and chewing gum" fixes for the rest of us (who don't have the $$ for a new 500HP crate motor and 4L80E swap) but who still enjoy watching. Unfortunately (as with any tv program) the almighty dollar rules, considering that, I think they have done a really good job on a weekly basis to put together an interesting show. Would I like them to do a few things different....Sure.....but then again I am not paying their bills (although I wish I had the money to [​IMG]).

    Ah yes, the far advance showtime check that DirecTV gives me, wonder why it took me 2 years to finally throw away the other dish and switch.

    I normally check the Saturday &amp; Sunday guide for airtimes (as it changes just about every week), and then let the VCR do it's job while I'm out. Of course I also record Hot Rod TV, Popular Hot Rodding, Car &amp; Driver and even Crank &amp; Chrome and then watch them during the somewhat slower weeknights.
