Our family loves road trips. Living in Los Angeles we are blessed with a myriad of day trip options as well as fun weekend trips. But before we embark on any adventure we always check to make sure our vehicles are in top shape.
From surf to snow, we took the 2016 Chevy Colorado through it’s paces as we joined Damien Hobgood for a single day of surfing and snowboarding.
For the GMC DIY Challenge we took home a Sierra 2500HD for a week. Here’s what we liked.
When it comes to miles per gallon and finding parking, mid-sized trucks win hands down over full-sized pickups and DIYers won’t lose much in terms of cargo space and towing.
Ram Trucks just announced the three winners of their Ram Cave renovation contest
Behind the scenes at the John Deere factory where their compact tractors are built and tested.

Replacing the shocks on your vehicle are an important piece of maintenance and fortunately it’s a job that you can do yourself.
All of the photos from the LA Auto Show
I missed the LA Auto Show but not this year. I attended the media only events yesterday and got a first look at the cars and trucks before the public which was nice as there was no bustling crowds or people to get in the way of photos. Every major […]
This weekend we traveled to the Nevada desert and were probably going a bit too fast on a dirt road. All it takes is a sharp rock and BOOM there goes your tire which is exactly what happened. Fortunately it was the rear tire and after the blowout we came […]
My truck has handled transporting surfboards with just a simple tailgate pad, but when I picked up an 11′ Laird standup paddle board I knew my bed was too short and I need to get a truck rack. The best looking one I saw also offered a lot of flexibility […]
I’ve often shared my love for my Ford F150 and apparently I’m not alone. I took a quick survey of fellow tool bloggers who were more than eager to share their trucks with me and how they felt about them. Despite higher mpgs, not one wished they had a sedan […]
Are you shopping for the ultimate work truck? The options on light-duty trucks keep growing to include increased comfort, power, and fuel-efficiency. We don’t hide our love for our 2001 F-150 which is still going strong but the 2011 models from the big 3 and a few imports have us […]
If you’re hauling plywood or drywall in the back of your pickup or open trailer, it’s best if the materials stay dry and out of the elements. This can be a problem living in the Pacific Northwest or somewhere that rains and snows often and you don’t have a covered […]
What sells product at the National Hardware Show? Trucks, Motorcycles and NASCAR. Here’s a selection of our favorites from the show. No Hybrids allowed.
Out of all the work trucks we saw at the 2010 Builders’ Show the Carmix One was the coolest. It’s a self-loading concrete mixer that’s perfect for when you need a lot more concrete than a wheel barrow can provide and you need it in multiple spots quickly. It’s also […]
Every builder needs a truck and the big 3 did not disappoint as they had their burliest and baddest trucks on display but none were as cool as the DeWALT Ford F-350 we saw at CES this year. Surprisingly the truck lineup at IBS 2010 didn’t include any foreign options. […]
DeWALT went all out with this fully customized Ford F-350 that was on display at the CES 2010 tradeshow this year. This truck features Microsoft’s mobile office as part of Ford’s Work Solutions that’s available in their line of trucks. The quarter panel bays featured a bevy of options for […]
The toughest consumer electronic device we saw at CES 2010 came in the form of a beefed up Ford F-350 that was wrapped in DeWALT tools and featured Microsoft’s mobile office as part of Ford’s Work Solutions that’s available in their line of trucks.
The auto industry is facing a crisis unlike any they’ve ever experienced. This morning GM announced it’s plans for filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy and it looks as though Chrysler which is currently in bankruptcy re-organization will be sold to Fiat. Ford is the only manufacturer of the Big 3 that […]
