    Default Extreme 4x4 on spike tv

    has anyone seen extreme 4x4 on spike tv lately?
    they are currently building an '87 suburban gorrilla. they just put 2 massive wenches on it and they said something about having an engine that has double of everything and its like haveing 2 4-cylinders engines on it.

    whats a suburban gorrilla? is it a model or just a nickname of their truck?

    and does anyone know if its 4w or 2w or what?

    Its basically a kit car version of a HUMMER, a fellow here in town built one and it looks pretty cool.

    Here is the website of the company that makes the bodies

    The one on the show is a twin turbo duramax diesel from Gale Banks

    If you miss it, don't worry. They only produce 12 or so shows per year. The rest of the time, it's re-runs until the new season... YOu will see it enough to get sick ofit between now and then! That's why I don't watch them anymore. I have seen them all. My DVR is set to only pick up new episodes. It rarely records anything.
