Trick My Truck

Trick My Truck

J writes – “This is fast becoming my favorite show on televison and the Make ethic is very strong. They pick a long-distance trucker with an old beater, loan him a truck and completely redo his. But they also pick a theme and mod the hell out of the original truck. Mods include a hardwood floor on one truck, a flat-screen tv made into a 1950’s style I-Love-Lucy tv, onboard computers, a truck with a dog-wash station, one with a bbq grill, and kick-butt beautiful painting. While it’s a little like Home Makeover, there’s some pretty substantial differences: nearly everything on TMT has to be custom made, and you watch them doing it. The spaces either have to work mechanically, or fit into the cab or the 4′-6′ sleeping box. And the long-distance guys are a pretty taciturn species, so even though they’re sooo happy, they’re not the screechy weepy kind of happy–they’re the belly-bump high five happy which is, frankly, a lot more fun to watch.”Link & one of the customizer’s pages.
