The Diesel Brothers first aired in January of 2016 and since then, they have made a definite impact on the world of motorsports. Since their shows premier, they have earned a ton of viewership from all of the diesel enthusiasts around the world. Buying diesel trucks that were headed for death and giving them a new lease on life has turned into big business for the Diesel Brothers.
The show is led by Heavy D and Diesel Dave and them and their crew work hard and play harder. Their show features tricked out trucks, pranks, stunts, all of which become their marketing tool for social media. Millions of views later, the company is known as the destination for diesel performance lovers who’re looking to buy custom-built trucks.
With their success growing, their project list has grown by one where they made history yet again. In collaboration with diesel performance leaders of the industry, the Bro’s built a monster truck coined “BroDozer”. The BroDozer is a Duramax-powered monster truck that they built to compete in the historic Monster Jam series. The first of it’s kind.
BroDozer made its debut in Monster Jam in Nashville, Tennessee as the first ever Monster Jam diesel monster truck. Seeing it in person was spectacular and the crowd loved it, too. Being used to alcohol-fed giants, fans were granted a smoke show from this fire-breathing diesel.
As if actually competing in Monster Jam wasn’t enough, Heavy D had an idea that didn’t seem very realistic until they green-lighted a stunt that would premier live on the Discovery Channel during their show’s season finale. “This Memorial Day will be special as we’re going to be pushing the limits with a 12,000-pound diesel monster truck,” Heavy D said. “We’re going to be jumping the “BroDozer” over a flying airplane at the Wendover Air Force Base in our backyard in Utah.”
On Monday night, on the Discovery Channel, Heavy D, and his crew, did what they set out to do. Although some of the viewers are claiming the timing was a bit off and it didn’t count, the fact of the matter is, the truck soared high enough to clear the airplane, far enough to land on the other side, and nobody was hurt. At the end of the day, it’s a win and it’s cool to see.
To recap, the BroDozer is powered by a Wagler Competition Products-built 6.6-Liter Duramax engine with S&S Diesel Motorsport products on board. The Duramax that takes credit for soaring this tank has a good bill of health with S&S Diesel custom tuning and fueling components including 200-percent over stock fuel injectors, twin 10mm CP3 injection pumps, and a Waterman lift pump. On the air side of things, it’s powered by a compound configuration of Precision Turbos cranking out over 1,100-horsepower.
