If that’s not enough mileage for you, then re-live the adrenalin-pumping moments from your favourite episodes of A&E’s most loved series available to stream now On Demand:
Jet Truck, season 1 – Follow the Darnell family and their crew as they travel across the country to thrill hundreds of thousands with their 36,000 horsepower, 376 mile per hour jet-propelled truck – while trying not to kill each other.
Ice Road Truckers, season 11 – For two months out of every year, a group of exceptional men find their way to the Canadian tundra to undertake one of the most dangerous jobs on earth. In the thick of winter, truckers in giant eighteen wheelers carry vital equipment and supplies to miners hundreds of miles away. In blizzard conditions, these truckers travel over ice roads that often take them over frozen lakes. Each man is trained in self-survival, from fixing his truck in subzero conditions in seconds to escaping from a truck if the ice cracks. On the other end of the journey are miners whose lives depend on the truckers making it to their base, year after year.
MegaTruckers, season 1 – Big trucks, big loads, big country, big money. Mega trucker Jon Kelly loves a challenge. His pristine $50 million fleet hauls huge loads across the treacherous Australian terrain to the most difficult-to-reach places on Earth.
Vegas Rat Rods, seasons 3 & 4 – Located on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Steve Darnell and his band of oddballs and misfits create one-of-a-kind rat rods. With the demands of their quirky customers, the team at Welder Up strips and rebuilds vehicles from hidden treasure.
