An update on Xtreme 4×4’s Toxic Truggy

It's been a few years since the payoff of Xtreme 4x4's Toxic Truggy, and since then, we've had several fans ask what's happened to the project.

It’s been a few years since the payoff of Xtreme 4×4’s Toxic Truggy, and since then, we’ve had several fans ask what’s happened to the project.

First off, let’s get one thing clear — it HAS NOT been crushed. In fact, we would NEVER do that to ANY of our projects. (Now if anyone ever asks you that again, just refer back to this blog post.)

So, what happened to it? Well, after catching up with Ian earlier today, the production crew took a few quick shots of the modded S10.

As you can see in the photos below, we’ve kept it in the garage with some of our other Xtreme projects here at PowerBlock. Obviously, it hasn’t been crushed, though it did take a good hit from a tree during an off-road incident.

Oh, and Ian said he hasn’t decided what to do with the project just yet, so stay tuned …

Take a look at the video above. After shooting the payoff show, Ian had some more fun on the trail, but he didn’t realize the damage he had done after hitting a tree. This amateur video captures his reaction. Check it out!

Thanks for watching, PowerBlock fans!

Search & Restore - Xtreme 4x4 Edition: AutoZone, Airtex contribute to Jeep TJ Build

When a PowerBlock viewer took us for a ride in his wobbly, lifted Jeep TJ, we understood why it hadn’t been driven in two years. We said we’d take a look at it, but what our viewer didn’t know was that we’re completely rebuilding it for Search & Restore – Xtreme 4×4 edition!

The crews who volunteered were AutoZone commercial customers who won a contest to come to the PowerBlock and show off their skills. A special thanks goes to Airtex Fuel Pumps, who offered volunteers and parts! 

Tune in at 9 a.m. EST, Saturday and Sunday, June 1-2, on Spike TV for Part 1 of Search & Restore – Xtreme 4×4 edition!

Video: Xtreme 4×4’s Military Bobbed Deuce demolishes a Dodge Neon

This was probably one of the craziest stunts we’ve pulled on any of our PowerBlock shows. On this episode of Xtreme 4×4, host Ian Johnson smashes his boss’ Dodge Neon with our Military Bobbed Deuce because … Well, he’s Ian Johnson, and this is Xtreme 4×4. In the long run, we think Ian did him a favor.

We don’t recommend you do this to your boss’ car.

Newlywed Nicole surprised her husband by installing a new set of lights on their Toyota, thanks to some help from Driveway Rescue.

“We got married in Harlan, Kentucky, at the Black Mountain Off-Road Park,” Nicole said. “It was in the middle of a little rock garden, and it was a good time.”
