Bam! Stubby Bob goes big-time in this episode of Roadkill, presented by Dodge. In episode 44 of Roadkill, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger took a 1950 Ford F6 dump truck and shortened the wheelbase to just 102 inches so it would look freaky-cool—but the truck wasn’t road trip–ready by the end of the show. This time, the truck is transformed by a supercharged big-block Chevy in the back with a Gearstar 4L80E transmission and a V-drive from a boat—all set up like a ’60s dragstrip exhibition wheelstander. But as the buildup continues, the big question is whether the weight balance and the massive dualie tires will really allow the truck to jerk the wheels off the pavement or not. The answer is some action you can’t miss. Roadkill is supported by Optima Batteries, CRC Industries, Lincoln Tech, Cooper Tire, Pioneer, and Jegs! We also thank Weiand, Gearstar, and Slims Fab Farm for help with parts for this episode.

US TIRE OUTLET
Here at U.S. Tire Outlet, we import tires directly from the manufacturers, so you know you’re getting the best price possible. If you’ve ever replaced tires on a semi truck, you know they can get expensive quickly. It’s estimated that the cost of tires actually increases 6 to 9 percent annually. If you’re not making an effort to save, you will end up spending too much.
That’s where we come in. Our expert staff is trained to make sure you purchase exactly the tires you need. It may sound obvious, but many fleet owners are spending too much money because they’re buying tires they just don’t need. Whether you have a fleet of commercial trucks or just a single truck, and whether you’re looking for domestic tires or imports, we guarantee that you’ll save money on your tires when you turn to us. Give us a call at (877)600-6110.
The suspension leveling valve went bad and aired the bags all the way up. This video is when the shop mechanic came out to bring the truck in to fix it. He didn’t know what to do to get it moving. I had to tell him to lock the divider. Then he didn’t know where the switch it was… Had to show him that too. Confidence inspiring.
