    Hey guys,

    The first episode was killer sweet rigs a cool trail, and a great profile on the people behind the wheel. That being said this one seems too have gotten away from the point “Rock Crawling TV” It was cool too see Ricki’s jeep but I personally would have been happier seeing a few well thrashed jeeps on an obstacle as opposed to a jeep doing a photo shoot. The tech part was not very strong either there could have atleast been some dialogue while he was plugging his tire not everyone has plugged a tire or has any idea how. Best of luck on the next episode as I will still be watching.

    This episode is actually an important episode for! In addition to seeing the guys at Poison Spyder put together a sweet ride for Rikki Rockett, we were able to make some great connections and expand our viewership potential which are both necessary for us to grow as a program and a company. It is also important to highlight individuals who have the potential expand the spotlight on the off road community and the issues we believe in.

    Loved this episode. I think it is kewl to profile a company that can and do provide parts for the aftermarket of krawlers everwhere. You guys are off to a great start. Exposure to some big name companies and some high profile peeps will most definitly help KrawlZone’s following.

    I understand the need for this episode and you guys did a great job putting it together………but I feel like I just watched an infomercial on Poison Spider. I love them and my YJ is fully wrap with their corners, fenders and sliders. If you guys just threw in some more action or out takes. The tech was cool but boring. I’m not a “Hard Core” wheeler either.
