On episode 33, we bring you an interview with Dave Druck from Trasharoo and Adventure Duo. We also discuss a few news articles including: Land Rover producing a special 65th anniversary edition, the US Federal government’s war on LR Defender imports, how you can help Brad and Sheena from the Drive Nacho Drive blog drive around the world, the little orange Jeep that saved the day and how that rust bucket in your backyard could make you some cash.
You’ve probably seen the Trasharoo out on the trails or in magazines. Its a phenomenal product that will only help the entire offroading community. Unfortunately, there are many people who choose to explore the backcountry but don’t live with the Tread Lightly! philosophy in mind. Then there’s the good offroaders like you and me that pack out more trash than we brought. The problem with doing this is that you don’t want all that garbage inside your rig taking up valuable space and stinking everything else up. Trasharoo provides the perfect solution by attaching to your external spare tire and providing room for up to 50 lbs of garbage. I love the idea so much that I have been looking to get a tire carrier for my XJ just so that I can show my support for this awesome product while providing a way to clean up the trails as I go. Trasharoo has also partnered with land use organizations to help raise funds for companies that work to protect our lands. You can pick up a bag to support any of these organizations: Blue Ribbon Coalition, California Off Road Vehicle Association, United Four Wheel Drive Associations, Tread Lightly!, the Rubicon Trail Foundation or you can have one made with your own custom logo! Maybe I should have a special edition 4×4 Podcast bag made….
