Today on GEARZ, project Heavy Metal is back as Stacey rolls the old International cab over truck into the shop so he can outfit it with a vintage Holmes dual wrecker bed. It is auto recycling at its best as the big truck continues to come together using parts from a junkyard wrecker, swap meet vintage beer kegs, and even some new aftermarket parts. If you've always thought that you had to spend big money to build a unique vehicle, this "Heavy Metal" truck will not only change your mind, but probably have you digging through old junkyards and checking out pastures in hopes of finding a vintage truck project of your own! That's a typical reaction...and that's typical for GEARZ!

Today on GEARZ, project Heavy Metal is back as Stacey rolls the old
International cab over truck into the shop so he can outfit it with a
vintage Holmes dual wrecker bed. It is auto recycling at its best as the

Heavy Metal Tow Truck/ Edwards Manufacturing [S7 Ep. 9-1]
What is cooler than a vintage tow truck? ...Nothing! ... and Stacey proves
that point by rolling Heavy Metal back into the GEARZ shop to outfit it
with new electric winches, and an amazing custom tool box and light bar.
This '69 International cabover truck may have been rescued from a junkyard,
but it won't be long before this truck starts pulling off rescues of its
own! This is recycling at its best! Then ride along with Stacey and crew
as they travel to Minnesota and get the story on Edwards Manufacturing and
how they have managed to stay in business for over a hundred years building
simple tools. It's all good, and it's all GEARZ!!

HEAVY METAL Exhaust [S6 Ep.12-3]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls Heavy Metal back into the shop and begins to
lay out some of the incredible modifications that he is going to be doing
on this old junk yard '69 International Cabover truck. A custom four-link
air suspension goes on first, and then a slick air brake system to pull
this big monster to a stop. A custom Exhaust is also laid out, along with numerous
other modifications to make this a one of a kind rig. If you have ever
wondered if a Cabover could make a cool hot rod, you need to check this
out. From there it's off to the movies as Stacey digs into the impact
and influence movie cars have on our lives and culture. To prove that
point, He brings in actor Dax Shepard and his cool '67 Lincoln Continental
that are both starring in the new movie "Hit and Run". So strap in and
hold on, 'cuz we might get airborne on this ride!

The Tow Test! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here!
This is the only event in TTC's seven-event repertoire that doesn't require
mud bogging, rockcrawling, or deep water navigation. Nonetheless, this
kickoff event instills fear in competitors because it has the potential to
annihilate weak components. The Tow Test is like a truck pull that drank a
case of energy drinks. It takes place on a dirt hill that climbs
approximately 13 feet in elevation over its 150-foot length and it has a
maximum angle of approximately 16 degrees. Each competitor's rig was
fastened to a 36,000-pound cement mixer and each competitor was allowed one
pull. There was no time limit and a pull was completed when forward
momentum ceased or the front axle of the cement mixer crossed the finish
line. This event favors heavy rigs with big power and grippy tires.

Muscle Truck vs. Baja Bug! 1974 Chevy C10 Battles Fred's Volkswagen Baja Bug - Roadkill Ep. 28
Remember the drag racing '74 Chevy Muscle Truck from Roadkill Episode 18?
It's back, but with a twist: it's gonna become a true dual-sport ride for
surf and turf, shedding its drag slicks for Super Swamper Boggers and
hitting the sand dunes...hard! And to prove that a lowered, two-wheel-drive
pickup can dominate the dunes, Freiburger and Finnegan set up a shootout
with Fred Williams from the Dirt Every Day series on the Motor Trend
channel. Fred brought out his '69 VW Baja Bug from DED Episode 23 and went
head to head with the Muscle Truck on the beach at Pismo, California.
The Roadkill/HOT ROD Magazine Muscle Truck is a '74 Chevy C10 shortbed,
stepside, with a GM LS6 crate engine (like the all-aluminum V8 found in a
C6 ZO6 Corvette). It's stock other than a small crane cam, midlength
headers, and a new addition for this episode: MSD's Atomic EFI (the truck
used to run a carburetor). The Atomic setup is atop a BBK intake manifold,
and uses a stock LS1 throttle body. That legendary Exhaust sound comes
from 3-inch pipe with 4-inch Dynomax Bullet race mufflers.
The truck's transmission is a JW turbo
400 backed by a Gear Vendors over/underdrive unit. And it really needs
overdrive because the Ford 9-inch rear carries 5.13 gears and a spool. The
suspension features dropped spindles and Ridetech Strong Arms and air bags
up front. In the rear, two leaves were removed from the stock spring packs,
they were flipped under the axle, and traction is delivered by Caltrac's
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
