This road trip is about to get real....weird. We loaded up not one but TWO jet boats onto the back of Lincoln Hawk, my 1986 Chevy Kodiak ramp truck and left Arizona for Georgia. Along the way we broke down, saw aliens, stayed in a campground and had the time of our lives. Stay tuned for Part 3 of this ridiculous road trip. All of the videos from this trip are brought to you by the cool peeps at WIRECARE.

Hiya, just found your channel, it's great. Thank you. But, there is always a but... you show re-wiring but in timelapse, not real-time. Shame, there must be a lot of viewers who could benefit from seeing how to do the wiring, learn to be able to buy off your sponsor to do the work! I'm a retired electrition so I do know, but others... Stay safe...Steve...

So I was driving from Phoenix to Austin a couple weeks ago. A few miles past the thing, my timing belt snapped, and we got stuck for 2 days until my buddy came and towed us back to phx. never got to see the thing, but if you go through Wilcox on a Friday or Saturday after 5:00pm, they have a really great prime rib at the steakhouse, and there's a pretty good bbq place too. and then as soon as I got home and had the timing belt sorted, my radiator started leaking out of the top cap haha.

Hell of a lot better mileage than the IDI in my cross country box truck. I was lucky to maintain 60 mph and I got about 7 mpg the whole trip.

Nothing is simple...it's RoadKill Mike Fenn's show. Better check those little wheels lugnuts, they are known to come loose after installation. Put a Roadranger 10 speed in it, it would pull better, or a 13 speed with double over for better fuel mileage. Yukawalla cactus good for killing birds who fly into it at night. And I am pretty sure you're not supposed to be filming in there either. Pretty sure someone pieced together a monkey carcasses with some fake long legs. Yep, because even the Indians used to tell about another type humanoid that was a giant and had red hair and it looked nothing like this according to their drawings of it. You would love the 3406 500 Cat even better with Jake brakes on it. Hi, med, and low three stage braking. Just put the belt back in the right grove and adjust it up tight and problem solved.Those must be heading into get rebuilt, I always had to cover my new engines with tarps and it was wrapped in a plastic wrap as well and still had to tarp them. Should have checked the lugnuts on the boat trailer at the fuel stop, that is required in a DOT check every two hours boys when you are hauling commercially, just so ya know. Good to know before you leave the truck stop and any tire repair services before you get back out on the road again.

Hey guys! Love your show. That five speed should be a fairly simple swap. Talk to a semi truck repair shop. A ten or thirteen speed should bolt in. Good luck.

I was so sad to hear game over was getting sold.. but I'm thrilled to see more boat action. I'm a proud owner of a 79 and a 81 eliminator .. not a lot of action in Washington state but fun just the same. Always turns heads, can't wait for more boat episodes

15:35 I wonder of there were supposed to be two belts side-by-side on the same set of dual-grooved pulleys for your brakes? Does the brakes-compressor pulley have two grooves, as well?

With air brakes if you lose air it actually prevents the brakes from being released. So if you would’ve lost that belt you would’ve lost air to the point your brakes would pop and there you would sit.

If you are ever on I95 in the Carolinas, stop at South of The Border! Also, when are you guys going to come to the Northeast? Lime Rock Park, Thompson Speedway, Whiskey Hill, Watkins Glen International, Pocono, NJ Motorsports Park. Toni's in Philly, that's plenty enough reason!

Double clutch?! You should only need clutch to start rolling and stop. Those trannys are made for no clutch shifting. Just lift or blip throttle. Probably a 10 speed. And you don’t need air for the brakes to stop. You need it to go. Just saying. Things worth knowing. 😉

If you lose the air compressor you are going to stop. Because once you loose pressure the brakes will lock up
