We are hitting the highway in Lincoln Hawk, our stretched 1986 Chevy Kodiak enclosed ramp truck. The plan is to fix some stuff on the truck and then make tracks for the west coast. I'm flying to California to film an upcoming episode of Roadkill while Newbern is driving to Arizona. We'll meet up in AZ and then road trip back home to Georgia with not one but TWO jet boat projects. All of the videos from this trip are brought to you by the cool peeps at WIRECARE.

The trick fireproof Dragon welding blanket we used in this video can be found here:

If you own toys... one is always broken. You fixed the truck, another toy had to break... I have a work car, personal, boat and caravan... One is always in a state of needing something. Sucks but on camera you seemed pretty well accepting. Fix the boat and brace yourself for the next breakdown.

The Hidden Lake, I don't think you have to hide a lake in Arizona - no ones going to believe their eyes anyway. In Arizona you drink beer to save the water for boatracing... You've got to like Arizona...and sunscreen. I guess Redlegs are not a bird native to Arizona, but how they know who's not from Arizona.

Only thing it needs is ham radio system in it with a Texas Star 667 with a fan kit installed in it, I would use a Stryker, 955 or a RCI 2970N4 to run a straight 6-8 pill amplifier. With a Mr.Coily antennas on the mirrors. Then that thing would talk coast to coast when conditions were in. I would keep that master switch for the battery connection so if in a wreck should happen on the battery side you can have a quick disconnect so it will not burn to the ground. Still need to find the leak and seal it up boys. Adjusting brakes is one of the first things to teach a driver so he doesn't die on a big hill with a heavy load and how to come off the hill without burning the truck down as well with a brake fire or seal meting out of the axel. I would say if no jake brakes on the Cat get some and the brakes will last 100% longer as well and less adjusting them as well. I hop you checked the SWRs on that radio and antenna set up after removing the coax and antenna off the other mirror.

That transmission fill shot reminded me that I did the same on my medium truck and it wasn't on a perfectly level surface. I was climbing the hill on I-8 out of San Diego to start the cross country trip, engine screaming up the hill at 30 mph and the transmission started to puke fluid onto the exhaust. Thought something was seriously wrong and had a mini heart attack in the process. Realized I overfilled the trans. Stopped smoking after about 10-15 miles of that. Made it the rest of the way no problem except needed to change the fuel filter a couple times (newer fuels knocked all the varnish from the old fuel into the filter). The old IDI was dog slow, but she didn't let us down.

I think your other ramp trucks are 1 ton chassis', and most of that stuff is still considered Light Truck unless it has the 1.5 ton axles (like the GMC 4500-5500 or Ford F450-550). This one you have here is most likely still considered Medium Duty unless the GVWR is over 26k lbs. Really the big difference between this style Medium truck and Heavy trucks is axles, tires which changes the weight ratings, kind of like when you go from 3/4 to 1 ton. The only difference is axles and tires usually. The frames are the same. Learned this all when I bought a moving truck with a 7.3idi, rated for 20k lbs GVWR. Even the front axle spindles would have accepted semi hubs and could have run semi tires if it wasn't a low profile chassis. What I found most interesting about all of this is that most of the medium trucks I looked at all had smaller displacement and lower horsepower engines than 3/4-1 ton pickups which makes them stupid slow when they're loaded.

I got a single video about an extended sleeper cabin in my recommendations like a week ago and I thought oh cool I don't know what this is but let's find out, now apparently youtube has decided I'm a hardcore trucking connoisseur who eat, sleeps and breathes trucking, because now, and I shit you not, EVERY video in my feed save for one or two is videos about the ins and outs of trucking, how to get started, pro tips for new drivers, new models of Kenworth, the insane sizes of the W900 series, so much of a shift because I watched a 7 min video

I had to laugh a bit when I heard there was a 3208 Cat in that truck. I worked on a few of those when I was younger. They are not Caterpillar's finest engine. Reading some of the comments about air ride on the cab, that's not that hard to do. There are kits out there, but basically just take the two rear cab mounts and replace them with air bags, shocks and a stabilizer bar. Loved the video.
