We are launching the “TFL Talkin’ Trucks” podcast with Roman Mica, Kent “MrTruck.com” Sundling, and I. The first episode of the new show is all about the best & worst trucks and moments from the Ike Gauntlet™ – world’s toughest towing test.
The Ike Gauntlet is an 8-mile stretch of I-70 in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It’s the steepest allowed grade on a United States interstate (7% grade), and the finish line is at 11,153 feet above sea level. We load trucks and trailers to the maximum and push them hard on this test. We score each truck, and compare them to determine the best – Gold Hitch award winners.
On the first episode of TFL Talkin’ Trucks we remember the trucks that performed the best, and the trucks that did not do so well. We had several mishaps over the last seven years on the mountain.
In the second part of the show, we also answer your specific truck questions.
You can listen here: TFL Talkin’ Trucks. Here is the video version of the podcast with lots of footage added in as well.
