Trick My Truck is Back and..
Better Than Ever!
We just returned home from the 2014 Mid Amerca Truck Show in Louisville, KY. What a show!
The show was sol out this year! there were thousands and thousands of truckers at the event.
Yes Trick-My-Truck will return in June as a virtual light, medium and heavy duty truck parts and
More than 1,500 truckers registered for a chance to win a $1000 Chrome gift card from Trick-my-Truck.com.
Rather than tricking out a single truck (which was a great cause) with thousands of dollars in refurbishing, we
would rather reward many truckers with and the ongoing needs of semi truck owner operators. This is a place for
independet owner operators and/or company truck drivers to showcase their semi trucks and their pride and joy. We
like to call it a permanent virtual semi truck show. We showcase their
semi trucks tricked out in semi truck accessories. This is a free service to
honor the individual owner operators that have dedicated their lives to this
Go to our Showcase Request Form and register to showcase your semi
truck in the Trick-My-Truck.com truck gallery.
We will need two or three high quality photos of your semi truck, along with a short bio on
yourself. Additionally, you may include information on what you haul and a contact email address if you're
available for hire.
Several years ago, CMT (Country Music Channel) gambled on a show that would change the heart of
many Americans forever. The storied CMT introduced a six show pilot called Trick My Truck.
It was a new reality show featuring a deserving trucker and his 18-wheeler in each episode.
The show's theme similar to pimpmyride and overhaulin, where old vehicles are restored except the target vehicles
are semi truck owner operators who own and operate semi trucks. A crew of experts
searches the truck stops of America looking for run-down trucks whose owners are in need of a blessing and break.
With the secret help of family members, the owner operator's big rig is "hijacked", and completely revamped with
all the latest and greatest features and equipment.
Since many independent truckers spend an enormous amount of time on the road and away from loved ones, dressing
up their favorite big rig with semi truck accessories becomes a matter of pride and a way fro them
to reflect their independent and freewheeling spirit. Adding a significant amount of exterior, interior, or
lighting semi truck accessories, allows truckers to bring the comforts of home, such as a fridge and a microwave,
with them on the road.
As one who sincerely appreciates semi truck driver owner operators, I can honestly tell you
that after 30 years of work in multiple areas of the automotive aftermarket industry, I have never meet more
REAL people than independent semi truck drivers. Think about this for a minute. Imagine
yourself outside of your SUV comfort zone, driving a big rig semi truck on a daily basis,
with a significant payload in your trailer. You also have to deal with passenger car drivers
who have no clue about the challenges facing someone drinving a semi truck attempting to navigate
the highways and local streets.
