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
http://www.4x4bodies.com/



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


Here is the links to the show in case anyone missed it

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.
