Our military 6x6 is now a huge 4x4 and gets airbags and link suspension. We flip the rear hubs to match the front wheelbase, relocate the battery box, and finish up our 100% fabricated pick up bed. Plus, we'll put our fuel saving street truck on a diet!
Our 800 horse mud monster finally sees its first mud hole. We'll recap this project from early beginnings as a '87 3/4 ton Chevy, to it's transformation into a open-header floor masher. Plus we'll look at the importance of the spotter in mud racing.
33 years ago, it was a 2 ton US Military workhorse. We rescued this M530C fire truck from the scrap yard and found it could not only crush cars, but actually still pump water! Ian and Chris tear it down, and prepare to build a 4x4 deuce with a bed.
MIG welding basics: What machine to buy? How to set one up properly, gas & wire choice? And what is the best technique for solid welds? All of this demonstrated. Plus America's Top Trails Part II: The Rocky Mountains, and Central Arkansas.
Wiring a truck can be a daunting task. Ian breaks it down from layout, schematic diagrams, to actual wiring of our IH Scout. Ignition, gauges, lights, plus simple circuits explained, plus how to turn a conventional alternator into a single wire setup.
Our Budget Buggy returns for reassembly. How to get a custom paint job with rattle cans. Plus a winch, fuel cell and a skin. And in part 1 of "America's Top Trails" we'll travel to New Mexico's Choke Cherry Canyon & KY's Land Between the Lakes.
Our IH Scout build continues with exhaust, fuel system, & new suspension. Smaller coil springs are in order to lower the truck's center of gravity. A brake kit provides stopping power. Plus, we'll show you some cool extras to be the envy on the trail.
