    Matt I am extremely curious about the thing attached to the underside of the hood on the banana. Are those the heater hoses plumbed into a small radiator for more cooling?

    I feel you on the not wanting to stop even if I want a coffee but I'm almost to where I'm going I will not stop .. stopping just means more time money and just a pain and that feeling that wave of traffic may catch you.
    When I was still a tow truck driver as soon as I got under tow 100% not stopping the faster I dropped the faster I could do another call that may be where it stems from.

    Nice to see the Banana getting a well deserved overhaul/upgrades. I know it's going to be done very well, just like you did the MOORvair. Make sure to put some good mufflers that will give it that nice rumble your rigs all have. I like Flowmasters myself. I love a deep throaty rumble.

    Matt, you are such a hack when you do builds or repair on jeeps, it's good that you do it on the cheap, it's bad that you are on YouTube and are giving bad recommendations.... Anyone can go off and due a vehicle recovery, but it takes a smart person to give smart and safe recommendations for Offroad fun or proper repair and safe fixes. Spend the money you make on YouTube and enjoy it, and just understand you are a danger with the bad recommendations you provide (or hyped Offroad recuses just for the camera) the the stupid rescues you perform along with the fact you rip people off for your off road recovery company....shame on you.

    Matt, I have visited Hurricane Utah with my wife a dozen times. We start in Detroit, 2,000 miles from Hurricane. We drive for 14 hours, 900 miles, with TWO stops because the car is out-of-gas. Our stops never ever take more than 10 minutes. We love the movement. We arrive late the second day. We have done 6 trips to Medford Oregon, 2,400 miles, 2 trips to Los Angles, 2,300 mi, all these arriving middle of third day. Phoenix, 2100 mile, 30 times, arriving the second day. Yellowstone, 1800 miles, 24 times. This one we always stop short, in Du Boise Wyo. That way we go over the mountain pass into Jackson Hole, with the rising Sun to our backs, and shining on the eastern face of the Teton Mountain range. Magnificent!

    Dogs do sweat, mainly through the glands in their paw pads.
    Shaving a dog to keep him cool can be harmful and lead to heat stroke. Your dog’s coat actually acts as an insulator. A dog’s coat captures air to keep out the cold and hold heat in during winter, and to keep your dog cooler in hot weather,” explains Dr. Jerry Klein, AKC chief veterinary officer.
