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!

HEAVY METAL Suspension [S6 Ep.12-2]
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!
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!
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 - Engine Mounts [S4 Ep.9-3]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls in that old International Cab over Truck, and
starts a project called Heavy Metal. The project not only showcases people
that work with their hands for a living, but also represents the Navy's
Blue Angels precision flying team. The first order up for business is to
get some serious power into the truck and that involves Stacey stuffing a
hot-rodded Duramax Diesel engine and Allison transmission into the old
beast. If you have ever wondered what it takes to retro-fit a big diesel
engine into a project, and if there are parts available to make it
happen... this show will not only answer those questions, but also
encourage you to do it!
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!
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!

and cartoons in our history -- Speed Racer and the Mach 5. This show not
only takes you thru the history of the cartoon, but also its cultural
impact on multi-generations as well. But that's not all, Stacey manages to
"borrow" the real Mach 5 and put it thru the paces against Racer X and
other challengers. If you've never crossed the line between fact and
fiction, real and imagined, we invite you to do it now with Stacey. Go...
Speed Racer... Go!
Ladder Bar system & Test Drive [S3-Ep.5-1]
If you've been around cars and trucks very long, you know that vintage,
nostalgia, and rat rods are very popular. The question is, how do you make
a nostalgia-style car with leaf springs hook up like a modern drag car but
not lose the vintage look? Simple...you install a ladder bar system! But
how do you keep the leaf springs from binding you ask? Ah...there is a
special way to do it, and if you want to find out what it is...you need to
catch this episode of GearZ. Then it's out on the road to test it out as
Stacey shows you just how much fun you can have with a nostalgia-style
vehicle. Would somebody please bail him out of jail?!?!

IT'S BA-A-A-A-A-ACK! That's right! The "KnuckleBuster" is back on GearZ,
and Stacey is putting the final touches on this '73 Chevy pickup. After a
quick look at the new paint slathered on its flanks, Stacey gives the truck
a face lift with grille, bumpers, and all that other cool trim stuff. Then
it's on to the bed where he lays in some oak to give the former "beater"
some class and style. Finally, it's underneath to stick in a new Exhaust system to keep the bad gas blowing out
the back. If you have ever wondered if you could really build something
cool yourself... all you have to do is check out the finished
"KnuckleBuster" and be willing to bust YOUR own knuckles... the rest will
take care of itself!!

The Knuckle Buster (Part 2) [S3 Ep.2-1]
Today on GearZ, Stacey jumps back into the "KnuckleBuster" project and
deals with an area we can all relate to...a sick engine and transmission.
But instead of getting rid of that old worn out vehicle, you can bring it
back to life by stuffing in a new engine and transmission. Stacey walks you
through the steps to show you just how easy this can be. You have to be
willing to bust your knuckles some and get your hands a little dirty! After
that, Stacey puts on the gloves and shows you how to perform a little
surgery on a tired rear-end in order to get the traction that only a locker
can supply. Make sure to turn your head and cough!
