‘Diesel Brothers’ is an American reality TV show that first premiered on January 4, 2016, on Discovery Channel.
Shows about cars and motorcycles aren’t uncommon these days. In fact, with the advent of streaming services, auto shows have found a vast audience. Deviating from the run-of-the-mill auto shows, ‘Diesel Brothers’ is not only about cars. It is about the meanest vehicles on the road.
That’s the reason that despite being a relatively new show it enjoys quite a significant following. The series is one of the most-watched titles on the network since its premiere (especially for the male audience, aged between their 20s to 30s). To date, it has had five successful seasons. Now the question is, will there be a ‘Diesel Brothers’ season 6? Let’s find out.
Diesel Brothers Cast: Who is in it?
‘Diesel Brothers’ follows Heavy D, Diesel Dave and their crew at Dieselsellerz, as they design some of the meanest diesel-powered machines. Heavy D aka Dave Sparks hails from Salt Lake City, Utah and he is an entrepreneur, a builder of customized vehicles, and a social media personality. He held a fascination for engines and machines since he was a kid and some of his first vehicles include his bike — a 1976 Yamaha YZ80 and his own creation, the Mega Ram Runner.
Taking his interest further, Sparks studied auto mechanics, welding, and fabrication in high school. After this, he managed a rental business, dealing in ATV and motorcycles, for his close friend and mentor, Rich Eggett. Gaining real-time, hands-on experience for several hours in a day, Sparks later started pursuing his higher education at Weber State University, which he soon left to try his luck in the real world. He soon started operating heavy equipment in his uncle’s construction business and gradually opened his own small-scale excavation business in 2008.
Sparks’ first employee in his company was Diesel Dave who soon became his best pal. After his marriage in 2009, the former started his next company, DieselSellerz.com. Diesel Dave met Heavy D around this time and they quickly bonded over their mutual love for diesel trucks, after which the duo opened DieselSellerz. This enterprise, today, is the go-to destination for anyone who loves diesel-operated machines on wheels.
What is Diesel Brothers about?
‘Diesel Brothers’ revolves around the meanest, fastest, and baddest heavy vehicles on four wheels. Dealing with monster trucks and cast-off buses, the entire team also indulges in some crazy driving stunts which involve immense fun, energy, and bravery.
Each episode of this reality show follows the team as they buy used or broken-down trucks and remodel them for resale. In order to market their products, Heavy D and Diesel Dave use the Internet and social media tools as marketing methods to showcase their best pranks and stunt driving skills. Diesel Brothers is mainly focused on the crew who thinks of and executes amazing models, pulls elaborate and hilarious pranks, and pushes their limits with new, unbelievable stunts. In short, it offers an adrenaline-pumped view into the sweet-smelling world of diesel.
Now, if you want a detailed synopsis of the show, let’s give you a gist of its episodes. In one of the episodes, when one client approaches Heavy D and Diesel Dave to build a monster school bus capable of driving over sand and water, Redbeard comes across the Mello Yello racecar from Days of Thunder and also finds the ideal customer who would want to own it.
Another story is about major league pitcher Jacob deGrom who approaches the crew to revamp his OBS Ford. Yet one more tale is about the diesel boys as they convert a rare British Land Rover Defender from right-hand drive to left-hand drive for a client. Heavy D, once, also tries to secure some cash by parting out a military plane de-icer.
What’s more? In one interesting incident, the team helps out an individual in overhauling his F350 truck after it broke down. And then, there is this episode where they assemble the shop’s first-ever diesel motorcycle, with a Magneto! Additionally, Heavy D and Diesel Dave bring in an old 1984 AMC Eagle, which they want to convert into diesel for a future project. They also reminisce about their favorite builds. To summarize, in the world of heavy diesel machines, Heavy D and Diesel Dave are competent enough to build the biggest and baddest trucks. No doubt about that!
In season 5, Diesel Brothers continue with their mission to renovate the heaviest vehicles. In one episode, the team works on transforming a rundown Canadian logging truck into a maxed-out, customized semi build, which they would use to transfer their specimens from one location to another.
The team also starts building two unbelievable Diesel Daily Drivers for their next truck giveaway. As the crew is on the verge of finishing the semi version, Heavy D plans for a dangerous stunt in the Brodozer. He also formulates a giveaway, that is inspired by one of the shop’s most popular builds, the US Duramax. In another episode, Heavy D buys a busted, unique rock crawler and sells it to Sparks Motors Treatment for a quick flip, whereas a certain friend commissions a 1,000-gallon fuel truck and two customized diesel-powered fertilizer spreaders to be used in his helicopter business.
