[00:00:00] Alan Taylor’s Daredevil Desert Antics
Chris Duke jumps on the line and is instantly regaled with Alan’s tale of driving ridiculously fast through the desert in a 2017 Ford Raptor. He may or may not have hit 100 MPH, and there’s also a slim chance he went airborne… 4 times. At least there were helmets involved!
[00:06:03] Hellcat Jeep with Massive Towing Capability
Who would think to put a Hellcat engine in a Jeep Grand Cherokee? Apparently, Jeep would! You can expect to see this insane machine in July of 2017. Meanwhile, Chris Duke recommends trying out the 2016 Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab 4×4, which successfully towed 10,000 pounds of steel to Vegas and back without struggle.
[00:12:32] Chris Duke Answers Questions with #AskDuke

[00:19:46] The Gang’s Kia Sedona Adventures
We’ve managed to rouse Josh Hancock from a deep slumber, and he’s feeling particularly chirpy for an early Saturday morning! His first priority is to inform BJ Killeen of a scene in a new Christmas movie featuring her favorite vehicle, a Kia Sedona. Check out a video the two of them made along with Dick Messer, Kia Sedona Confessions on YouTube!
[00:28:40] Gossiping About Karl Brauer and His New GT
While trying and failing to get Karl Brauer on the line, the group decides instead to talk about him behind his back. Topics up for discussion are what organ he should sell in order to afford the new Ford GT he’s been given special allowance to purchase, and what he could make off his 2005 model if he chose to sell.
[00:35:45] The Ford GT Anticipation is Building
Now that we’ve finally contacted Karl Brauer, we’re anxious to hear if he has any updates on the upcoming and much-anticipated Ford GT. And he does! But it’s not all good news… Listen in to find out when he can expect to receive the vehicle that may end up costing an actual arm and leg.
