    Just binge watched the entire build, from the $80 bid from the junker, with Trevor in the fork, to this episode, amazing build, amazing crew, and more fun to watch than anything on the car channel. Ed's weather report with the Florida cutoff tee = priceless. Love your stuff Matt and Team, I am officially hooked, subscribed, and belled for every video!! Thanks for showing how good people doing the right thing is better than any made for TV BS. Now, on to Ed's Jeep recovery series!!

    DUDE, please stop fucking welding without a helmet with your eyes closed as if it'll save you from burning your retinas :-( it's painful to watch - you're such a good guy and so onto it in so many other ways but you have to pick up your game on the welding safety - it's no joke.

    How can there be dislikes on this video? I would really like to know what is going through peoples minds.

  • imgettinby

    don't care for all the music, but at least, unlike so many others, you still let the natural sounds come through so we could hear the engines and tires squeals and metal bangs, so thanks for that.

    How does the Banana do against the Morrvair now that it has the 4.6 stroker?

  • Slider68

    Is there an x-pipe in the exhaust? Years ago I added one to my '84 Grand Prix, with a mildly built 5.7 small block in it. The exhaust volume dropped by about a factor of 3. There was still a nice deep rumble to but it was almost too quiet. Performance wise, I believe power increased, but I never dyno'd it.

  • retrofitter

    Get 2 mufflers that have only have 1 outlet each and aren't designed for high flow, split the exhaust before them

  • iNawrocki

    Banana did amazing. It just needed to lose another 5lb's of air in the tires and it would effortlessly cruise over everything you did. Not to mention the new tires, in general! Such a great build.

    • iNawrocki

      @Matt's Off Road Recovery Hah! Those were at 6 lbs?? I stand corrected; I misjudged how little they squished. Regardless, you guys are awesome and your Banana Build has turned out so awesome.

    • Matt's Off Road Recovery
      Matt's Off Road Recovery

      5 pounds less would’ve put me at 1 pound. Lol The new tires definitely needed to be broke in.

    First Thing: It is so rare to see Lizzy without her hair in a braid! Second Thing: I believe it is a mistake to remove Winder Towing signage from the Banana. MORR is a division of Winder, so Winder should stay on the doors and MORR signage should replace the Recovery Rope signage on the rear side windows. The Recovery Rope sign should go on the rear hatch glass.

    • Matt's Off Road Recovery

      Not a division, separate businesses. And as you can imagine, my Winder Towing dispatchers love answering all the questions they get. Ha ha It would be like if you owned a landscaping company, and you also owned a restaurant. And 200 people called the landscaping company every day to ask the hours of the restaurant, and what the daily specials were. And how much every food item cost, and if all the restaurant staff were related.

    Sorry for asking a stupid question, I am not very knowledgable when it comes to 4x4s. Does the Banana oprate with a manual or automatic gearbox. I can't see inside the Jeep but it sounds like an automatic.

  • Benjamin Speer
    Benjamin Speer

    Look into twin loop mufflers. you get the performance but cut down on the sound if you dont want it.

    That's awesome you guys can get together and do this! Love your vids

  • LookIleftpooponyourpage

    So I've been wondering why you use manual locking hubs instead of auto lockers? I don't know a lot about locking hubs, most of my 4wd vehicles had auto locking hubs and then I got a Chevy Tracker with manual hubs and I got tired of getting out into the snow to lock them so I replaced them with auto lockers. Are manual lockers stronger?

  • WintersEnd3873

    Hey Matt love your videos by the way if your still looking for a quieter alternative muffler look up the walker silent series mufflers they were stock ok my dakota with a 485 horsepower motor and made it extremely silent until i changed it for a magnaflow because i wanted an aggressive sound. Btw when she was straight piped she would rattle windows. Dont have the truck anymore but also catalytic converters can help to quiet things up with the walkers as well

    This has got to be, hands down, one of the best F@cking videos I've watched in a long time! That was absolutely fun to watch. I wish I could of been with all of you when you did this. You've got your own "Moab Hells Revenge"! I always enjoy watching your videos. And the Banana 🚖 OK, I've never done this before as I've watched all of the Jeep and off road channels over many years. I am going to SUBSCRIBE to your Channel.

    You should carry a short string and plumb bob to hold in front of the camera to give perspective of how steep a lot of the grades are. The camera alone doesn’t reflect how insane some of the slopes are especially when you’re doing recovery.

  • urstupid670

    Those stock hummer h2 rims look great on that thing

  • jackburner8107

    I think you took the banna where les stroud camped......


    @17:34 You need to put one of those big trucker wings on there to keep the back end from coming up! LOL 😛😛😛😛
