Venture 4wd, coyote works, I am Jake, the road chose me, 4xoverland and waypoint lost. I do watch some trail recon occasionally but I find it to be more of a how much crap can I bolt on a jeep channel and the music annoys my wife to death. I really like the simplicity of venture4wd. Chris has the perfect recipe going on his channel. Casey has some good content on his channel with a stockish jeep to boot, proving you don't need an overbuilt rig to explore. Jake's travels have been fun to watch! Dan Grec is an inspiration! His writing is better than the videos but I appreciate them all the same. It's neat to see footage from the places he's been. Andrew is one of the best storytellers in the business. I've been watching his shows before he was on YouTube. I just recently found Phil and Max on waypoint lost. I think their channel shows a lot of promise.
The I am Jake channel is getting hard to watch and take seriously. It seems he makes drastic unexpected moves and doesn't really explain anything. He will take months to get to a certain point and then all of a sudden he is taking things apart again and redoing them in a slightly different manner. I don't ever see that jeep going back on the road.
He should have invested his time in building a light travel trailer and powertrain swap for his Jeep YJ. He will inevitably be changing the engine for something more powerful and efficient anyway.
