Top Gear USA Series 01 Episode 09

To determine America’s toughest truck, the hosts travel to Alaska. They are given $3,000 to buy pick-up trucks, with the conditions that the truck has at least 150,000 miles (240,000 km) and are bought sight unseen. Tanner buys a 1983 Chevrolet C/K, Rutledge buys a 1997 Dodge Ram, and Adam buys a 1976 Ford F-250. After seeing their purchases for the first time, they are informed that anyone whose truck breaks will be forced to drive an imported Toyota Hilux, which they claim will make them a national disgrace.

Challenge: Each host must accelerate their truck to 30 miles an hour along a trail, then brake at a marker placed 30 feet from the edge of a lake. The hosts are then told to drive to Fairbanks, where they are told that they must convert their trucks into campers overnight to survive in the wilderness. The three must climb to the top of Fish Creek. As their final challenge, they must drive further south to a glacier, and drive upon it to complete their challenge.
