Wheelstanding Dump Truck! Stubby Bob’s Comeback - Roadkill Ep. 52

Bam! Stubby Bob goes big-time in this episode of Roadkill, presented by Dodge. In episode 44 of Roadkill, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger took a 1950 Ford F6 dump truck and shortened the wheelbase to just 102 inches so it would look freaky-cool-but the truck wasn’t road trip-ready by the end of the show. This time, the truck is transformed by a supercharged big-block Chevy in the back with a Gearstar 4L80E transmission and a V-drive from a boat-all set up like a ’60s dragstrip exhibition wheelstander. But as the buildup continues, the big question is whether the weight balance and the massive dualie tires will really allow the truck to jerk the wheels off the pavement or not. The answer is some action you can’t miss. Roadkill is supported by Optima Batteries, CRC Industries, Lincoln Tech, Cooper Tire, Pioneer, and Jegs! We also thank Weiand, Gearstar, and Slims Fab Farm for help with parts for this episode.

  • Dear MotorTrend (channel). I’ve been watching Motor trend channel since you aired, & Watch often. One of your shows has become my favorite, & record if I cant watch when aired . Roadkill Garage has become my favorite goto car show, I was recently re-watching your 50th episode, & just love the humor, the hot rods on the cheap, & your road tests. Roadkill is arguably, by far, the best car show I’ve seen. It’s for the everyday guy who isn’t loaded with cash, for fancy new $50k mustangs or excessively expensive restorations that I can only dream of. Roadkill garage makes me believe i could actually have high performance fun for very little. Keep up the good work. Dave & Mike, & the other cast are great & know their stuff & make the show, & their practical no nonsense work they do on cars is fun to watch. If you keep any show going on Motor-trend channel, make it Roadkill garage,. Thanks for the great programs.

  • Anyone out there know how easy (or difficult) it would be to convert a truck with a similar front-end to Stubby Bob to 4WD? I have a 2000 GMC 3500HD with an I-beam axle and leaf-springs in the front. It has a Dana 80 in the rear, 7.4 Vortec (454), and 4L80E trans.
