[music]. so this this particular vehicle has been . around for quite some time it's . originally built by john bedding by a . blitzkrieg motorsports kind of invisible . another guy added for a prerunner i . bought her off of him for 60,000 this . people probably cost you to rebuild it . that same vehicle probably about 350 . i'm fortunate if i don't have that much . the best night probably put another . hundred into it fixing everything that . was broken crapping out a little bit . bigger prerunner engine and it's about . 600 horsepower 600-foot pounds . i wanted it to move really good look at . that was this particular body style is . my favorite body stuff . lazer's threat it's a 78 it's kind of . blended together parts of of different . trucks it's got a 2003 front-end this . hood mold was originally our hood mold . from my first prerunner that we had . built in 2002 when the bedsides from a . 91 silver tailgates from the 78 so you . kind of just mashed a bunch of things . together yeah i didn't do all the . bodywork on it when i got it add a bunch . of holes in the bedside some stuff you . know i wanted to change to make it a . little bit sexier right it wasn't quite . what it is today i can't take credit for . building it but i can take credit for . making it work yeah we changed a lot of . stuff in the interior to make it more . ergonomic we put much bigger shocks on . it we did a lot of suspension tuning . because i'm so passionate about having . this vehicle right it's a really what . good in the big bumps so this truck is . as smooth as my trophy truck in the big . box it's not as fast as it doesn't have . a 900 or. motor good so about 300 day . as which is a big difference when you're . running those it's a big . when the 48 tires on it so it's a really . good run truck especially for you know i . could use it for pre running and i use . it to like play around you know around . town yeah i hit medians at like 80 miles . an hour vegas for bj's like the wild . wild west. he's been there long enough he's been . driving these things long enough to . where this is a hundred and ten percent . my fun vehicle this is actually my dream . car some kids growing up you know st. hammond lamborghini i wanted a blazer . with a big motor and really good . suspension so that's about five years . now and you know we've had a lot of fun . taking it for what it was to what it is . today and changing the suspension love a . change in the interior great deal and . cleaning up the body and making it just . a little bit sense right the lights . really make it to the new rigid lights . they're adjustable they're the adapt . light bars these are actually the . prototypes because i i got the first . ones these these janitor yeah these are . the rigid adapt lights they have . switches it so so it's pretty cool to . have that adjustability can we see under . under this old girl let me help you with . weight more hood pins than i need. [music]. you uh you call this the elephant yeah. elephant intake there's limited room up . here. when blitzkrieg built the chassis . obviously they had to integrate the cab . they did a good job we have a little bit . different design principles files to . build it from scratch you know obviously . it cost me a lot more money but i would . i would have made it a little bit lower . i wouldn't have to use a stock frame . rails when they built this originally . when this thing was constructed it was . made to be driven in california so you . have to have like three feet or 4 feet . of frame rails stock frame rails in . order to get registered we're added we . don't have to do that so we do a . complete tube chassis for prerunners and . data and what it does is that the . vehicles are able to sit about four or . five inches lower which helps it in . handling and coring so i mean if you . were to enter this truck into or some . kind of race series right now what would . that be or is that not even though i . think it'd be a 1450 truck pilot if i . was to enter it into a class is a badass . 1450 truck i've seen a couple of really . well so fast . it's really really crazy fast it handles . really good it's really comfortable it's . really forgiving anytime you come up on . something that you forgot was there like . a big ditch it just goes like this boom . i mean we just watched you stop multiple . times on a dime right over there this . thing stops like that and also oddly . flips around with the quickness - i . still don't understand how you're able . to drive this things like that we . changed when we got it first thing we . did we had a really small motor and we . pulled the motor out of it put a big . motor in it it had like 350 horsepower . we put a six on a horsepower engine we . put different radiators and neat . exchanges in it you know to help cool . the transmission cool or cool the . radiator and then we put bigger shocks . on it and we tuned the shocks for quite . a long time king how much travel is him . they think it has that's a big old it . has about 23 inches of travel on the . front and about 29 yeah my trophy truck . got about 25 and 33 so this thing could . pretty much do a record then we we also. put bigger alcon brakes on elysium heat . away so it's stopped that was big free . can't just put like an engine that makes . over 200 more horsepower than what was . originally put in it and then just leave . the brakes on so we had to put big . brakes on when we put the big motor . right that's basically how you should do . it any time . put a for la de transmission in it so . it's what we use them all our premiere . owners that has overdrive so you can . drive it down the highways in baja and . get going like 100 105 without really . put a lot of stress in mode you know for . a long long hauls friend you know the . south of baja how often do you actually . pre run with this thing it's kind of a . backup for your honor so i use my i . tundra i have a deal with toyota and i . represents them with us my ability if i . have some kind of issue with my tundra . you know if they arm cracks or breaks or . something happens 100 to 0 real quick we . had a really bad accident i had a rock . the size of a car but we're glad to be . ok then this is this is my backup you . obviously don't see this on social media . quite as much as it used to because of . my relationship with toyota this isn't . really like manufacturers vehicle . obviously it's kind of pieced together . different parts of different trucks . everything on this truck is customer the . only thing that's not a windshield in . the doors what's your favorite part . about this job my favorite part about . this truck i like driving on the street . is the looks that you get on the street . you know driving . in traffic and i don't just cruise with . your traffic i don't think you can say . that you drive spiritedly i drive spears . spiritedly through traffic it stops . because it's really like driving a tank . without any travels well this thing is . fancy i'm glad you brought it it's got . all kinds of crazy scoops and sweet . things like that anything fancy in here . um i got these shaved you know that's . another thing i did you know about smile . sexiest ya know door handles no no . handles anywhere on on the frogs i even . like the color match to alexi set up . everything we did these naca ducts in . there it had these big ugly scoops of. the side that were non-functional naca . ducts are proven to work in the wind . tunnel so we did these these go to the . oil coolers the other side goes the. transmission ice it's a lot sexier with . these in the wind yeah that's fancy yeah . that's all the tweety let's see we . changed the interior great deal we built . all this stuff into it we run dual gps . and set it in case one fails we have a . big one on my side that i can program . and then another one for my navigator . the he can program . and obviously there's a certainty that . somebody else and then we rewired the . whole thing and we put with the motek . dash in it it had a a bunch of you know . instrumentation that was not that cool . that consultant i wanted to put all the . best stuff right i'm gonna spice it up i . mean i love i love the vehicle a lot in . spaceship right there . yeah then we got all the all the . controls for all the rigid a dap light . bars so i can control you wanna show us . one or let's just hit me with a little . light ooh man oh whoa whoa buddy and as . a significant amount of light i gotta . say the lighting right now oh nice yeah . you're my wife or your wife or i'm sorry . i think we pretty much got everything . covered you got i mean it's a badass . truck bj we put everything we do at the . shop any time i have a little bit of . space to do something new to it you know . i'm doing it i'm constantly trying to . improve this thing yeah i think probably . the next step because i do less pre . running with this vehicle now i'm . probably gonna put a really big . supercharger because it makes about 600 . horsepower right now if it made nine . hundred or a thousand i think of you . you don't got to explain to me why . you're putting more power i'm always . down for more power if i had it my way . i'd have a motor that made 3,000 . horsepower you know so you can never . have enough horsepower torque well let's . see what let's see what i mean we got a . little taste of what's a sunder . horsepower is like now that you're . warmed up your brakes are warmed up. you're driving arms warmed up i think . let's give the people a birthday present . all right let's do it all right . i told you guys in the buick episode . that he wanted to the first person to do . some two-wheel stuff so looks like he's . practicing for that . so good he's out of his mind man . [music]. was that only get to see like this . on the internet or paid $25 that's my . boy. that's my boy . [music]. yawn danger kyoto is insane right now . the ramp is uh on borrowed time heavy . truck yeah that's a big old truck you . already break something that's how i do . it for making funny noises or something . what this right there always pops off . throttle cable yeah that's kind of . sketchy but i need an off-road wrap . [music]. .
