One Car Too Far new TV series

New Discovery Channel survival series where two guys take their Jeep (TJ?) out into the wild and try to not get stuck and survive by their wits and Jeep knowledge.
Looks fun!

I have been waiting for this with the DVR set. As mentioned above I hope these guys aren't idiots and the show is at least somewhat realistic.

It says the guy is a motor head not an offroader and as mentioned was on a show with team Lamborghini. Big difference. But he seemed capable in the one vid do.

Its a funny show, watching them argue but its nice to have a show all about a jeep! Its too bad they always call it "the car" though! In the most recent episode on a icy volcano they broke their Dana 35 or as he called it, the "halfshaft"

i saw both episodes, fun show.

but is the jeep in both episodes the exact same vehicle? i was disappointed to see in episode #2 what appeared to be the same TJ, i was hoping to see a different wrangler each episode.

in episode #1 the Ausy=guy cut the rear seat belts off the jeep to make a harness for himself and in episode #2 he does the exact same thing! so what are they doing restoring the same jeep after filming each episode? i hope not. but i'll still watch future shows.

think they'll fix the D35 for episode #3 or swap it for a D44? or, keep the tree-trunk skid they fashioned?

Whats funny is he kept saying we need to figure out a way to fix the axle. He said the only way is to make it down to the forest and they can use a log. A much better solution was right in front of him the whole time. All he had to do was take some of that rope and the hi-lift jack handle and fasten it to the frame to keep the axle from sliding out.

I loved when he said it was a fluke, the axle must have been defective... Yeah, they all are Boo Hoo Wu :-)

I think the show is stupid and Wu needs to learn how to drive the Jeep instead of making all the stupid motions like he is almost out of control all the time. This show gets the rating of lame in my opinion. As someone else on here mentioned, it should be named Two Tards in the Yard.

I keep waiting for Gary to shove his knife into Wu's throat. He is just dead weight. IMO.
