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. 4-1]
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!
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 ½" 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!
Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 2-1]
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!
