Season 13 is off and rumbling with Stacey showing off the new exhaust system for the SR-71 Rapid Tool Express project. From the headers to the tailpipes, this exhaust is going to scream!

The biggest Toy in the shop is back… HEAVY METAL! Yes… Our old junk yard International Tow Truck rolls back into the garage as the freshly painted cab returns from the Hot Rot Institute. And it's not just any paint, It's Razzleberry from Axalta that's so candy, you'll want to take a bite! But there's no time for that because Stacey jumps right in to putting a face and interior back in this old junkyard dog. The result will make you really glad that he rescued this one from the crusher! It's recycling at it's best… it's GEARZ!
We're moving full steam ahead with the Interior of the Heavy Metal cab coming together and now's the time to get the dash set up. We've got new gauges, old gauges and a bunch of empty holes where switches and knobs lived in this truck's former life. Stacey lays out the dos and donts of getting your dash updated and a layout that makes sense before it gets installed. GearZ hits the road with a special delivery for the Hot Rod Institute for all they've done for us and the restoration industry. Feeling a little down about your project?

The SR-71 Rapid Tool Express returns as Stacey digs into his old '59 ford panel truck and shows how to convert it into a one-off tool delivery truck to show off a variety of Cornwell tools. From special shelves, lighting and floor, there are even a few surprises that are tucked away inside this rolling tool cart! Moving to the cab of the vehicle, Stacey addresses some of the issues people have when setting up seats and steering, and shows some simple tricks that make a huge difference in getting your seats and steering dialed in. Then it's on the rear to lay out the gas tank, and then finally the SR-71 gets a new beak.... from a '59 T-bird! ...What?!?.... how is that possible? Well, ya gotta watch GEARZ to find out!
The Jeep may be the single most modified vehicle out there. From winches to lights, doors and fenders, if you've got a Jeep, it probably has some accessories on it. But despite all that, one of the best things about a Jeep is the removable top. It also sparks one of the biggest debates... What is best: a soft top or a hard top? Stacey takes on the challenge by comparing a factory hard top with the new Bestop Trektop. The test will include everything from ease of install to styling, overall sound decibels and of course, how watertight it is. Hopefully you won't get wet on this ride! Then it's back to the shop where Stacey shows you that rotisseries aren't just for chickens, and how an automotive rotisserie can make life in the shop a lot easier. Finally, it's on to the right and wrong way to use weatherstrip adhesive to hold your rubbers on. Sound risqué? It's not... it's just GEARZ!
It's all about square body GM trucks, because The Stunt Double is back in the shop. First, we take a look back at the this awesome ‘86 Chevy 4x4 Silverado long bed build that pays tribute to the legendary Fall Guy TV truck. From its beginnings as a well-worn farm truck, you'll see it get an upgraded suspension, interior, drivetrain, as we make it better than I was before... better... stronger... faster... wait, that was a DIFFERENT Lee Majors TV show! After that, we walk you through the paint job and show how it is similar to the Fall Guy truck, only different.... because It's the Stunt Double!!! No hocus pocus... no movie magic... just a tough truck being built to handle the toughest stunts... only on GEARZ!
The SR-71 Rapid Tool Express is back on the block and going back together for the last time. Stacey finishes up the frame into a rolling masterpiece with the suspension and drivetrain assembled for the last time. Then the body goes back on, and the interior starts to go together. We're talking fitting the carpet, steering column and the new dash bezel and stuffing that bezel with custom SR-71 gauges. After that, Stacey shows some tricks on how to choose the right transmission and why rechargeable power tools are giving the tried and true air tools a run for their money! It's all here and more on GearZ!
With the e85 market and flex fuel vehicles growing every day, Stacey dives into the myths and truths that surround ethanol and whether or not it's a good choice for your vehicle. With a little help from Advanced Fuel Dynamics, Stacey installs a new fuel delivery system on a 2017 Mustang to show just how easy it is to up your performance and keep your engine safe at the same time. After that, Stacey and the crew head out west to tell the story of Bestop and how they've been making removable Jeep tops for decades. From rock-crawlers to the mall crawlers, Bestops unique past allows us to see what the future of the Jeep world will be. Finally, if you're trying to decide between a stick or automatic transmission… hang out for a while as Stacey talks about converting your boring automatic to a lively manual transmission. We've got all this and more on GearZ!
It's rare for people to reach the age of 100. It's ever rarer for a business, but that just what Cornwell Quality Tools has done! Take a trip through the last century as Stacey tracks the development of a tool company started by a blacksmith, to the tool truck empire that stresses quality over everything else. Speaking of 100 years…trucks have been around for over a century, and for over a century, truck owners have struggled to find the best way to lift their trucks. Stacey sheds some light on picking the right kind of lift for the truck you're driving. We've got all of this and more on GearZ.
There's nothing like a good mystery. One of our favorite GearZ mysteries is the whereabouts of Copperhead, the legendary C10 that Stacey built more than a decade ago. It seemed like the truck just disappeared. Well, it's back! And Stacey was reunited with it at the C10 Nationals in Ft. Worth, TX. Tag along as Stacey gets a chance to get behind the wheel again and boil some tires. Back in the garage, Stacey tackles a fuel injection install on a Jeep Scrambler, then checks out the new Core Doors from Bestop. There's a lot going on and plenty of smoke on the Texas Motor Speedway on this episode of GearZ.
As the SR71 Rapid Tool Express nears completion there are a couple of major things left on the plate before we can fire her up and get her down the road. First, every aircraft must have fins, and Stacey finally finds the fins he's been looking for since the beginning of this build. Second, a cool logo design shows up at the shop. Third, what's a stealthy tribute vehicle without stealthy paint? Believe it or not, Stacey's got some paint that should keep the SR71 flying under the radar. Also, a slightly modified March Performance system will help Stacey get that much closer to putting some spark to this awesome build and stick around for plenty of other tech advice from America's Gearhead… on GearZ.
We're on the road, again, as Stacey visits a truck enthusiast working on his first ground up restoration. It's a sweet, clean, square body that's in good enough condition that it might be on the road in a couple of months. But every build can use a little push, and GearZ On the Road does just that! After that, we dig into toolboxes. Hang out as Stacey talks with two engineers about what makes the new Cornwell Platinum boxes so tough. From rollers to welds, these might be the Ultimate box! Then the Cheetah is back in the garage, but only for a day or two before it heads out to get the body work finished and get some new color. It's all here on GearZ.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
