    Must be a rerun cause I saw that show over a year ago already i bet. If I remember correctly there was some talk over on classicbronco.com that it was for sale for like $60k+! Jesse really thrashes on that thing when they are done with it! He breaks one of the bolts for an upper front link I think it was and jsut keep's hammering on it even after it broke!

    yeah he is an ass...
    I liked the show until the freebies... I thought it was gonna be a low budget buildup but instead the freebies that us blue collar workers (wearing one right now :grin: ) could never afford.. like dynatrac d60's and all that other great stuff....

    then ta boot not only do they get all that freebies... ok fine overlook that... but jessie doesnt do any style to the rock challenge... he just tries then thrashes the hell out of the truck....

    he did also crush a car in the street the night before......

    I stopped watching anything jessie builds because he breaks it all....

    Yeah thats the one. Another thing that pissed me off about it was it was the viewers choice show meaning that is what all the people that watch the show wanted them to build and then when he gets done destroying the thing he says "I dont know what the big deal is" which to me means, well that sucked!.

    Ya they spent like $40,000+ on that thing and it broke on the first rock they went over. I think it snapped a link and the HAD driveshaft.
