Mini Artillery Truck

Mini Artillery Truck

Mr. Michal shows off a metal truck that incorporates a multi-fire rocket launcher in its bed. Loaded up with gunpowder, it puts on quite a spectacle, but the danger level rises precipitously with the addition of ball-bearing projectiles. Yep, don’t try this at home. Leave it to the YouTube “professionals.”

World’s Horniest Truck

World’s Horniest Truck

The yellow machine you’re looking at is “Le Mécanophone,” otherwise known as a 1935 Citroën truck, equipped with 42 different car horns. But this thing doesn’t just beep, it’s basically a calliope on wheels. We want one of these just so we can honk at traffic all day long.

Driving a 235-Foot Trailer

Driving a 235-Foot Trailer

The typical 18-wheeler is about 70 to 80 feet long. So imagine what it must be like to drive a truck that’s roughly three times as long. This clip from Big Rig Videos shows how Buchanan Hauling & Rigging maneuvers a massive toll gantry along the highways and byways of Florida. Naturally, it’s the corners that are the trickiest part.

San Francisco House Movers

What do you do when you love your house, but it’s not in the right location? Simple. Put it on a flatbed truck and move it.

Driven: 2021 Ram 1500 TRX

We were fortunate to spend several days dashing through the snow in Ram’s 702 horsepower sleigh. This beast of a truck does everything that the already great Ram 1500 does, just faster and with more brawn. It’s basically a muscle car with an off-road suspension – and a rich kids’ plaything like nothing else.

Carving a Ford Ranger Raptor

Carving a Ford Ranger Raptor

We may not have the Ranger Raptor here in the U.S. yet, so we’ll have to enjoy Ford’s the mid-size off-road truck from afar for now. It looks particularly great carved out of wood, as Woodworking Art shows off his impressive vehicle modeling skills yet again. We love how he incorporated the working suspension and steering.

For the 2021 model year and beyond, the Ford F-150 will offer an option that allows for the front seats to lie almost completely flat.

Driven: 2020 RAM 1500 Rebel Diesel

When it comes to half-ton pickup trucks, the best you can buy today is a RAM 1500. And if you want to take one off-road, the RAM 1500 Rebel is the most capable of the bunch. We spent a week with the new EcoDiesel Rebel both on and off the pavement, and found a whole lot to love about this rugged yet modern truck.

Truck Chase Flip

During a police chase in McLoud, Oklahoma a cop attempted a PIT maneuver on a fleeing pickup truck, causing the vehicle to lose control and flip. But rather than stopping the criminals in their tracks, the truck righted itself and kept on driving. The cops eventually got the scofflaws though.

GMC CarbonPro vs. Hurricane

GMC CarbonPro vs. Hurricane

GMC’s 2020 Sierra pickup trucks offer an innovative bed made from a carbon fiber reinforced polymer. This makes them extremely durable and impervious to about everything. To prove this, they compared ordinary beds to theirs by flinging objects at them in hurricane-force winds. Suffice it to say, the CarbonPro won hands down.
