5 Grand Cherokee Part 1

[TK2008-14]

Project Cheep Cherokee was a big hit this season so, we're taking it up a notch with our 5 Grand Cherokee project. We're taking a 1998 Grand Cherokee out of its mundane "grocery getter" life and jacking it skyward with a 5.5-inch long travel lift kit, some cool junk yard upgrades and bigger wheels and tires that are better suited to this Grand Cherokee happily living out its life on trails in the great outdoors.

MuscleTrux Part 1

[TK2008-01]

It's the start of our all new MuscleTrux series and to kick it off, it's the oldest matchup in the book, Ford versus Chevy. Ryan's taking a 1990 454 SS Chevy while Kevin's picking a '94 Ford Lightning. Today, we're gonna find out just how much these two trucks will put out in their stock form so each guy can formulate a secret plan to push both of these trucks towards the 400 horsepower mark. Then later in the season, we'll pit them head to head to see which one comes out on top.

MuscleTrux Part 2: 1990 Chevrolet 454 SS

[TK2008-02]

Bowtie boy Ryan's got a big play for using big displacement to make big power for his entry in our first MuscleTrux series matchup. Kevin's not allowed in the shop as Ryan's adding new heads, a new valve train, a pro-flo EFI throttle body, and intake to his 454 to wake up the potential in this big V-8.

MuscleTrux Part 3: 1994 Ford Lightning

[TK2008-03]

It's Blue Oval boy Kevin's turn to take over the shop and kick Ryan out as he takes a radical approach to more power by turbocharging his V-8. Hidden under the bed, a tailpipe turbo spins up the boost while bigger fuel injectors and a new fuel management system pump up the power on this big red Ford.

MuscleTrux Part 4

[TK2008-12]

It's another shot in our MuscleTrux series as Kevin's 1994 Ford Lightning prepares for battle by getting a suspension overhaul with a lowering kit, new brakes, and much better tires.

MuscleTrux Part 5

[TK2008-13]

Ryan returns fire as his 1990 Chevy 454 SS also gets dropped down into the weeds with its very own lowering kit, new brakes, wheels and tires. Matching stance for stance with Kevin's Lightning, Ryan's getting his big block Chevy ready to go head to head with the Ford in our MuscleTrux series. Also, we'll show you how to breathe new life into your worn out GMC or Chevrolet truck by doing a simple, hand tools only engine swap and it's easier than you think!

MuscleTrux Part 6

[TK2008-15]

In this show, we've got more MuscleTrux wars! It's a chassis dyno shootout to see what kind of power our sport trucks are making. Then, we'll check out what's hot and what's cool at the Nashville Goodguys show and finally, it's sanding and buffing tech that'll give your truck a mirror finish.

MuscleTrux Part 7

[TK2008-19]

In this show, it's finally time to lay it on the line as we put the first two trucks in our MuscleTrux series up against each other in head to head competition. We're scoring this Ford versus Chevy battle on everything from flat out performance to road manner and even to good looks.

C-10 Goes "On The Air"

[TK2007-16]

Today, we'll take you out of the shop to two of the best places around and have our 1966 Chevy C-10's frame media blasted and powdercoated. Then, it's back to the shop to install a brand new air suspension that will make our '66 C-10 ride better than a brand new truck!

Now, this C-10 still has its classic looks but underneath, it's got through a whole transformation with an air suspension and more powerful drive train!


A Bronco On the Cheap

[TK2007-04]

It's the start of our low buck Bronco build up as we drag a somewhat complete 1979 Ford Bronco out of a field and strip it down to the chassis in the Trucks! shop. We'll begin bringing it back to life by spending as little money as possible to make this Bronco an awesome weekend warrior that we don't mind bouncing off a few trees!

Low Buck Bronco Gets Big Power

[TK2007-05]

Our Bronco is back and we're working over the junkyard 460 big block we got with our Bronco for maximum torque. After that, we're going to get the frame up in the air with a new lift kit and 37in tall tire, then we'll mate the body back on the chassis to get this behemoth ready for some more low buck work.

Das Bronco Will Dazzle You

[TK2007-06]

We hit our stride with our low buck Bronco project as we smooth out some of the rough spots on the body and build in a do-it-yourself roll cage for a little protection. Then for less than $200 we're gonna paint this old Ford in a way you'd never expect! It's a radical but inexpensive paint job that'll christen this low buck buildup, Das Bronco!

Launching Das Bronco

[TK2007-11]

It's judgment day on the high sea's well, at least on the highway as we roll project Das Bronco out of dry dock to wage war against any off road trails that may challenge our 460 cubic inch powered low buck Bronco. Then we'll get one step closer to getting Project "Haulin' S-10" ready for the drag strip.
