I can't stand that channel.

Lets put the chick in a bikini so everyone will watch the video.

But wait. Lets make the boyfriend look like just a regular chubby old schmo. So all the normal not terribly good looking guys will watch because they will fantasize that they too can get a smoke show like her.

Though she does seem to know her stuff. I get it and all. They couldn't be professional YouTubers traveling all over the country on their Google AdSense money if it was just that chunky guy and his ugly mug.

She's actually kind of the perfect woman. Great looking, smart, knows how to turn a wrench, and a semi-pro drift driver or something like that. Oh and she doesn't need you to look like a model to date you. But I guess that's the whole point.

they are actually married 🤷‍♀️ and Brittany was in Hyperdrive on Netflix (https://www.netflix.com/title/80189648). they also have a subscription website (https://e3offroad.com/) that probably helps them supplement their income off of youtube. IDK they certainly didn't come out of no where. people can actually make a decent living off of youtube.

I can't imagine being so triggered by a woman making an offroad youtube channel that I would feel the need to completely discredit all her work and effort because she was too attractive. The only thing this rant was missing was the "I would treat her so much better than her husband, but she probably doesn't even give real nice guys a chance"

I could be completely wrong, but I'm guessing that Ford put a little $$ in their pockets as well for this vid. Easy way to target current Jeep owners that subscribe to their page.
Most likely not. Not cash. Influencers rarely get paid directly. Once you are paid directly you are sponsored. Now will you get stuff? Yup.

Now will they get a priority order? Yeah, probably. In fact I hope so.

It's one thing to know how something works, but it's another to see in action. How many other off-road vehicles have a sway bar to you can disconnect under load? I don't think it was disingenuous at all. I think they were genuinely impressed.

How do you feel about OBL knowing they are paid to act that way?
Porsche Cayenne in 2008 introduced PDCC, a hydraulic anti sway bar that could disconnect in 4L and dynamically stiffen with high lateral loads. I recall Porsche saying the Cayenne Turbo was as fast as a 911 around the track.
They even entered a couple dozen in the Transyberia Rally and made a special edition.

Here's my old Cayenne Turbo, my G, and my friend's JKUR on 35's with 3" or 3.5" AEV lift.

Damn... I thought I was a conspiracy theorist... until I joined up here. I realize now, even with 40 years of experience, I’m only a novice. 🥺

But could it disconnect under load? I'm guessing it can since it seems it can adjust underway while on the road.

If you think modding a normal Jeep or Bronco would be eye wateringly expensive I can't image what it's like to do a Porsche. The parts don't look to be horribly expensive If you do it yourself.

That’s the best video I’ve seen as far as demoing actual capability. I’m amazed how little he dragged the bottom on some of those climbs and descents...the angles with 35s are solid.
A shorter wheelbase would do even better. Can't wait to try out a 2dr version

Was I the only one that caught the information on what is needed to run 37" tires? Sounds like it needs a 2" lift over the SAS ride height, 2 inch longer control arms and removal of the crash bars. He has a wise question asking if that could be accomplished with spacers because he doesn't want to loose the ride turning of the factory SAS package. It's not an insignificant amount of work to move from 35" tires to 37".

I watched their Jeep JL videos early on. They were the only ones with great content at the time. I quit watching when every video felt like an ad for whatever they're installing that week. I feel like that's when she really got so HYPED up about everything. I get it, that's their job. They have a loyal following and I wish them the best. I know they'll have exclusive and great content for the Bronco that I will check out.

We also have Kevin to thank for telling Matt's Off Road Recovery to start a YouTube channel. It's one of my favorites and is hugely successful.

I'd enjoyed their last two videos on the Bronco. The show and tell format has lots of information to educate and inspire.
I'm also glad I didn't have to constantly listen the screams of WOOOOHOOOOO...! WOOOOOOO.....! that is typical of their Jeep contents.
I have a lot of respect for what they do. Most people don't know how much time it takes to create high quality videos on a consistent basis.

Enjoyed the video. Enjoyed seeing knowledgeable people geek out a little regarding the Bronco.

I also thoroughly enjoy Lite Brite! Fellow Texans (to the degree they live anywhere), for one thing. Good content, learn a little something, see something scenic, laugh a little. Can Britney get a little excited!? Sure, but that’s part of what it takes to build an audience. She knows her stuff and I always take away some positives. I watched a Matt’s Off Road Recovery video the other day where Matt called Kevin during the recovery to ask Kevin why he thought the Jeep they were recovering was burning oil. I don’t know a lot about Kevin’s background but he has obviously learned a ton in the last couple of years about off-roading — not to mention finishing KOH this year ahead of a bunch of other folks. That was with Britney handling the majority of the spotting and winching duties. They get nothing but respect from me for what they have accomplished. Do they get sponsored and subsidized at times? Of course! I hope so. Who wouldn’t want to be? They demonstrate and use what they endorse. Nuff said.
