I love your channel. Great content. Excellent video quality. Drone footage adds a lot. Your are a fantastic group with mad skills. But I cringe a bit when I see you in situations where safety glasses are warranted but not used. I know...safety 4th....

should of built the new super banana from ground up ; design frames , suspensions , roll bars ( just in case ) etc , anchor points front and rear for the towing hooks & rings and winches , light bars , built in camera locations inside & out for 360 views to take on the most extreme boulders of Utah ; make it like the ford flex for four full doors and lots of storage ; built in generator charged by solar and by a small wind turbine as you are driving ; 4 on the fly ; have the skin covered in forged carbon fiber “chip board” ; maybe a full body skid plate to protect as much as possible ; you design it - Fab Rats can build it for your tow truck and trailer , make it so the winch frame/anchor can go up and down as well to give you added height maaaan , i already want to build one for myself : ] ; now where can i come up with the funds , hhhhmmmmmmm

With your RUvid channel getting more popular Maybe it would have been a good idea to seek sponsors for free suspension Rims tires ETC for free Like everybody else does free stuff

Come on, finish the sentence Matt! Rudy isn't here today, because he's hung over after his 21st Birthday! And I bet Randy was his wing man, and Ed was their Uber.

Very nice video, Matt - you are 100% right, better to rebuild the yellow stag than give it away. Years ago I rebuilt myself a MB 190 diesel with tail fins completely new. I weld in sleeves on the beams and after all the welding, I pressed in zinc corrosion protection and vacuum sealed those sleeves. Goes very quickly and the corrosion from the inside, is stopped. Outside sandblasted, first primed with zinc dust and then sealed with bitumen. The car passed the technical service in Germany this year without complaint. Greetings from Frankfurt and your videos are all really great.

As I was going through plumbing school, we had one Girl in our class room, as I remember she had hair as long as Lizzy's, and our Teachers concern about her hair was always have it tucked in her helmet, my concern Is safety for Lizzy, Do you get my Point!!

Where i come from, it wouldn't be mud you'd be worried about, it would be that swiss cheese steel that would can put your fingers straight through. Where i come from it wouldn't be those worn out old polyurethane bushings you'd be worried about, it would be that swiss cheese steel you can put your fingers straight through. Where i come from, it wouldn't be frame stiffening you'd be worried about, ok wait maybe....🤣🤣 . Where i come from you worry about that swiss cheese steel you can put your fingers straight through and frame stiffeners. 🤣🤣🤙 Who has it harder, Desert folk or America's interior city folk?

I think a good upgrade for the pwertrain would be a Duramax. Nothing crazy, just a twin turbo one with 800+ hp.

I absolutely love your channel and all the people who make your videos some of the best entertainment on youtube............which is why I implore you to please please wear some safety glasses and have Lizzy tie her hair back. These things are so simple to do. It would be so so horrible if any of you wonderful people got seriously hurt when it can easily be prevented. We love you guys and do not want to see anyone hurt.
