On March 5 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery, Aaron Kaufman will return to living rooms across the nation at the helm of his new show: Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman. Last year Aaron opened his new shop in Dallas Texas, Arclight Fabrication. Here, Aaron and his hand-picked team will focus heavily on the quality of their vehicles and get out of their comfort zone by taking on projects that they wouldn’t normally tackle. Aside from the show, the business end of the shop is manufacturing Ford F-100 parts, a market that hasn’t been tapped into to the extent of C-10s and the like.
This first season of the show is all about putting their builds in the harshest conditions to see how well they stand up to the challenge. The premier has Aaron showing up to the shop with a rather dilapidated International Scout that he wants to transform into the Ultra4 rig. The goal: compete at King of the Hammers which is one of the most grueling one-day off-road races on the planet. Not only that, but the truck has to have a license plate and be driven on the street.
