The Truck Show Podcast, Episode 8: Grumpers, Big Brakes, and More

A brand-new episode of The Truck Show Podcast was released this morning. Someone once asked if there was actually enough going on in the world of trucks to justify a new podcast each week. The short answer is that there’s more than enough. The industry is ripe with brand-new midsize, fullsize, and HD trucks to talk about, and aftermarket truck business is thriving. It’s a great time for trucks. Podcast hosts Holman and Lightning don’t just share their views and opinions, they go straight to the sources by getting company bigwigs on the phone to spill the latest and greatest.

Episode 8 is jam-packed with good stuff. Greg Higgs shares the story of how Fab Fours bumpers got its start and why we have Grumpers, Mike Hamrick of Wilwood Engineering checks in to talk about the importance of performance truck brakes, and we ask Ryan Kibbe of Kibbetech how he got big taunting Jesse James and making magazine-worthy truck builds. Lightning also springs a new segment on Holman to test Holman’s truck knowledge. The guys also talk about current news items including Roush’s Ford F-250, Land Rover’s Defender pickup, and Ford’s diesel F-150.
