The new reality series “Trick My Truck” premieres at 8 p.m. EST Friday, Feb. 3 on cable’s Country Music Television.
The eight-episode series follows the Chrome Shop Mafia, a group of mechanical wizards with expertise ranging from body work to electronics. The heroes roam the truck stops of America looking for run-down trucks whose weary owner-operators are in hard need of a break. With the secret assistance of family members, the Mafia “steals” the rig and fully revamps the truck, customizing it to suit the needs of its fortunate owner.
“These guys work real hard, living on the road separated from their families and facing adverse circumstances such as skyrocketing fuel prices and deteriorating pay rates,” says Bryan Martin, “don” of the Chrome Shop Mafia and owner of 4-State Trucks in Joplin, Mo. “We just want to give them a hand.”
