The Phoenix: Ted Nugent Bronco [S5 Ep.3-3]
There is a saying that for every good side of something , there's also a
dark side. Today on GEARZ, Stacey goes there as he reveals what to do when
bad things happen to good projects. Using Ted Nugent's old broken down and
discarded Bronco as an example, he shows how to start over and re-kindle
the passion in a project that has been given up on by everybody else. If
your project has been stolen or stripped, or has become stranded by hard
times, sometimes all it needs is a little change of direction to get it to
rise out of the ashes and soar again. If Stacey can get Ted's old Bronco to
rise like a Phoenix out of the ashes and fly again, you can do the same
thing with your project too! You just have to roll up your sleeves and get

The Knuckle Buster [S3 Ep.1-1]
Today on GearZ, Stacey takes a well worn, '73 Chevy pickup that was left
for dead in the late 80's, and starts bringing it back to life by upgrading
the suspension and brakes. Not only is this a project that most anybody can
do, but it is the start of a three part series of the major steps that are
involved in rebuilding a vehicle. With the way the economy is and the price
of new vehicles today, this show demonstrates that there is a better option
than buying something new... bust your own knuckles and build it yourself!
Then Stacey sits down with off-road racing legend Ivan Stewart to find out
what makes him "the Ironman".
The Blown Ranger [S6 Ep.14-1]
One of the hottest vehicles to hit the gear head world is the Side-by-Side,
or Utility Vehicle. Once relegated to just farm or ranch work, the UTV is
now something that you will see being used for Hunting, Fishing, Camping,
Landscaping....virtually ANY kind of outdoor work or recreation. Of course
that means the aftermarket is full of things to make an UTV better. Today
on GEARZ, Stacey takes a Polaris Ranger and decks it out with a 3 ¬Ĺ"
lift, bigger tires and axles, winches front and rear, and all kinds of
other cool things to build an all-terrain vehicle that will really shine on
the trail or off. After that he gives you a sneak peek at the new
Ironworker that has everybody talking. If you work a lot with metal, you
need this machine!
Junkyard Truck [S4 Ep.2-1]
On this episode, Stacey goes where all of us have been before to pull an
old derelict SEMI TRUCK ('69 Loadstar/International) out of a quiet
junkyard to demonstrate the steps necessary to get an old, neglected
vehicle running again. From rat's nests to chicken poop, it's all here as
Stacey slowly coaxes the old truck back to life. This show definitely
drives the point home that if something like this can be revived, there's
NOTHING that you should be afraid to tackle as long as you are armed with a
set of tools and a sense of adventure! Go get 'em!
The V8 Barstool [S2 Ep. 4-3]
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start
discussing their projects, invariably the conversation drifts into
speculation of what the smallest thing is that you can successfully put a
V8 engine in. Well today on GEARZ, Stacey pretty much puts an end to that
speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part
garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what
GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this
show! Then Stacey dives into some Muffler Tech to show you what kind of
mufflers there are on the market, and give you some tips that might help
you make the right decision when the time comes to stick some cool mufflers
on your machine!

Assembling the Beast: Ted Nugent Bronco [S6 Ep.7-1]
So you think the only option you have for your project is an expensive
crate engine? Well, think again.... Because that old crusty engine
currently residing in your project just may be the perfect raw material to
rebuild. Today on GEARZ, Stacey visits an engine rebuilder to show it is
possible to breathe new life into an old engine without spending a fortune.
Then it's on to the final assembly of Ted Nugent's old Zebra Bronco as the
engine goes in, the parts start going on, and the big rig slowly comes back
to life. It's one bad beast fit for the Motor City Madman, and it's only on
Trailer Towing and Modification [S5 Ep.7-1]
If there's one thing that every gearhead needs, it's a trailer so you can
drag more junk home! The problem is, most of us don't really put much
thought into the set up of a trailer, and that can add up to some serious
problems when you go to retrieve your prize. Today on GEARZ, Stacey walks
you thru how to set up a simple trailer, so you'll be ready to pull a
rusted hulk out of a field, or pull a restoration from coast to coast.
Compressed air, Winch, and auxiliary electric power are all things that you
CAN take with you if you take the time to plan ahead and select the right
equipment so it all works together. If you like to hunt for those
forgotten treasures, a trailer is one tool you've got to have!
