Hey Truckers! In this Semi Truck 101 video, we walk you through the rear suspension and components of your semi truck. And with our walk around we give you some tips on what to look out for and some things you can do if you see a potential problem.
In this video, we used a 2012 Volvo Semi Truck as our model 🙂
In depth look at what it takes to mount bigger tires and wheels on your Japanese Mini Truck. For this video we use a 2002 Suzuki Carry DA63T Kei Truck but these measurements will work on most other trucks including Daihatsu Hijet, Mitsubishi Minicab, Subaru Sambar and the Honda Acty.
We have dozens of other videos on our channel covering various topics of Japanese Mini Trucks or “Kei” Trucks. Whether you are looking to import or purchase a Suzuki Carry or you already own a Daihatsu Hijet, There is sure to be a video to interest you!

Winter often means snow-covered and icy roads. Experienced truckers know that the lighter the load, the less traction the tires have. Even trucks hauling heavy loads can lose traction in snow and ice. One of the most important things about driving a commercial motor vehicle during adverse weather conditions is to maintain vehicle traction. Ice, snow, and high winds all work towards reducing traction as well as visibility.
Tire chains are one of the best tools to help maintain traction when the road surfaces are covered in winter precipitation. In this video we will show you how to install tire chains on your commercial vehicle. Extreme conditions are not the best time to learn how to install tire chains, so inspect them and practice installing prior to needing to actually use them!
Please remember, even though you might have great traction and the experience to drive in less-than-perfect road conditions, the other driver might not!
In this video series, I demonstrate how to repair the front brakes on a Chevrolet C10 squarebody pickup truck.
This brake job is going to include new brake calipers, new inner and outer wheel bearings and bearing races, new brake pads, new rubber brake lines, pack the new wheel bearings with grease and add one new section of hard brake line and a new dust cap. I keep the rotors that I have but I do take them to a shop to have the rotors turned on a brake lathe.
