Trucks: I'd tune in to watch it. Better projects. More and varied coverage. My preference of the two. I like Xtreme 4x4 even more, but they're both a part of the Powerblock.

Truck U: I've watched it when I've stumbled upon it. Very hokey at times. Seems to focus on a lot of chintzy bolt-on stuff. An entire episode on making a hitchrack, a crappy grill, and a cooler into a tailgating rig? A whole episode on souping up golf carts? What? I also get tired of their ZMax backing. We get it, guys ----ZMax is a sponsor.

I liked trucks 10 times better when Stacey David was the host. Ever since they brought in the new guys I only really have a desire to watch extreme 4x4

I met stacey david at all truck nationals in carlisle. awesome guy.

Trucks- Love the show, good projects, good info.
TruckU- eh, ok, if theres nothing else on ill watch it. Like others said, a lot of bolt ons and "tuner" stuff I feel.

My vote goes to Trucks...and the rest of the powerblock

What year did you go? I went there in 06 i think and got to see Copper Head and it is a awesome truck, but we had to leave and Stacey was running late I think so I didn't get to met him

Trucks! Is a good show, they have good projects and give you some good knowledge.
TruckU is kinda cheesy I find, I know that both shows are scripted but it seems like they are ALWAYS trying to be funny when neither of them are. They do have some good stuff sometimes, but mostly it is about their Rhino's or pimping out a JK with chrome

Yeah, idk why stacey david left. Once the new guys came on trucks, it sucked. I'll stick to extreme 4x4

Gearz is way better than those two shows. Trucks is alright and Truck-U just downright sucks, all they do is bolt on parts to advertise.

I watch musclecar, trucks, horsepower, gearz, and extreme 4x4.

Trucks, even though they push a lot of sponsors. Maybe that's what you are looking for though.

I prefer Xtreme4x4 because of all the custom fab stuff.

Trucks - Good stuff, I watch it when I can remember it.

TruckU - ****ing Zmax ads ruin the whole show. Not that the show is any good to start with.

Gearz with Stacy David is where it's at!

I agree, Gearz, Trucks, Xtreme 4X4, all good shows.

TruckU not the best of shows. Would watch if it was the ONLY thing on TV.

Are the TruckU show hosts names Neil and Bob?
