I'm wondering if they have a D35 for the rear of the Jeep - for it to twist off a axle shaft like they did?

Yea no seat belts at all. Dangerous if you are with the driver in the show. Going at high speeds threw a jungle without knowing what's on the other side.

It's all staged. The broken axle shaft, hole in the radiator, was staged too.

Yeah how many of you knew they were going to have a hole in the radiator as soon as you saw the eggs in the jeep at the beginning of the show?

I know it sounds dense but I had never heard of the egg white trick until I saw them do it.

Learn something new every day - including that I do not want to jump on the hood of my jeep.

The solar still brought me back to my boyscout days - we did that but just did not pee in it.

I thought so. Why only a few eggs? Why not any other foods? Old school trick for radiator leaks. Doesn't last long but works for a little bit.

The military guy was cool. And the other guy was a joke!!! They filmed the whole show it looks like in the mountains of Chili and just worked there way around. But whats really scripted is the driver got his hair colored while on the trip. My son and I were watching it and my son says when did he color his hair on his way to get a steak, that seemed to be the guys favorite line.

I noticed that too. I also noticed that they not once say it's a Jeep or show the Jeep logo. I have a feeling the folks at Chrysler didn't want to pay Discovery. But then hey, it's a Jeep, Chrysler doesn't have to pay for people to recognize that brand!
