What's Your Favorite "Trick My Truck?"

Whos been follow'n the series? This show is awesome! I only wish they were 1hr episodes instead of 1/2 hr. So what's your favorite Truck? It's a tough decision, But I gotta go with the "Ice Breaker" Truck.

Here is the link for those of you tht don't know.

I have been following it,i am going to watch the new on that aired tonight in about 15 minutes since i did not catch it at 8:00.I like the Ice Breaker too,also liked the Open Range one.Its a good show so far atleast it did not turn out like pimp my ride or anything like that. Since the show started ti have been wondering, Do they do anything with the engines? Do they drop a new one in or just do a quick rebuild on them?. Cause some of the trucks the reason they were on the show was because of them breaking down and stuff.

I think they have done an incredible job on all of the trucks. But I have the same question, are they doing anything to the engines? All of the episodes have said that part of the reason they want these guys to work on the truck is because they break down so much.

I voted for the Ice Breaker truck. I really liked the interior of that truck. My second favorite would be between Semfer Fi and Open Range. It's just to bad they couldn't paint the trailer of the Semper Fi truck to match.

i know some of the "pimp my ride" shows just left the motor.
you can see puffs of blue smoke on startup when they take delivery.

one my buddies said the PIMP cars usually end up on e-bay pretty soon.

Chips Overhaulin does it RIGHT.
but the fake "stealing" and pranks makes it ignorant.
the new chick is useless. at least courtney did some sanding/cleaning.

watched Trick my Truck other day, was too "canned" for me...
everything seemed posed and "ok, now, say something cute/funny"

They have to overhaul these engines, If they need it. I remeber the Semper Fi truck was always breaking and that was their problem. If they didn't touch the engine it would be stupid. Got to say my favorite truck they have is the all white peterbuilt with black stacks they rode in on once.

Yeah, I saw it the other night, and if they ain't doing anything to the engine, their not really helping the people out much.

That's why I watched it to see what they did to the engine.

Personally, I much rather have a beat up rig that ALWAYS gets the job done, than a pretty shiny POS that can't make it home every nite without breakin' down

kind aliek when we were younger, the ole chevelle can be primered and rusty, but as long as the engine roars, who cares ?? but a show car with a smoking (not in a good way) engine was a joke.
