Xtreme 4x4 is a half hour series that airs on
Spike TVthat began in January 2005 as part of Spike's weekend Powerblockline up. The show uses a how-to format, where the hosts build or modify trucks to turn them into hardcore off-road rigs. They also periodically show "extreme action events" from across the United States. These include such events as rock crawling, desert racing, sand drags, mud racing, and trail riding adventures.
The show's hosts, Ian Johnson and
Jessi Combs, were selected as part of a publicized, nationwide search for hosts where viewers were encouraged to send in their videos and resumes to Spike TV executives. Both hosts have appeared on other automotive shows including Discovery Channel's " Monster Garage" and TLC's " Overhaulin"'.
Recently, Jessi Combs has announced on her blog that she will not be returning to Xtreme 4x4.
Unlike former shows aired as part of the Powerblock, the "how-to" component of the show is emphasized to a much greater extent. The show provides more in-depth information into such things as
wheel alignmentand creating suspensions for off-road vehicles.
