Diesel Brothers Lend Fleet of Lifted Trucks to Help Rescue Hurricane Harvey Victims
oh, they also have a helicopter to do air rescues.
The boys over at Sparks Motors are hard at work heading down to Houston, Texas to provide flood relief and rescue efforts. As you may already know, Sparks Motors also has a TV Show called Diesel Brothers where they have gained a considerable amount of money. Rather than keeping their money and resources to themselves, David "Heavy D" Sparks and Dave "Diesel Dave" Kiley have selflessly offered up five of their own vehicles along with two tractor trailers worth of supplies to help the victims of Houston. Oh, they also got a helicopter to do air rescues.
Through the power of social media, the diesel brothers were able to get an insane amount of donations within 24 hours. In fact, they didn't originally plan on taking two additional tractor trailers down with them, but they received so many donations that they knew it was necessary. As you can see in the videos and images below, their heavily modified vehicles are more than capable of traversing the nearly apocalyptic terrain that is Houston.
It is beautiful thing to see so many individuals lending a helping hand to those in Houston. With so much divide going on, these images and videos are a symbol of hope. That being said, I feel it would be wrong of me not to warn the Diesel Brothers and anyone else going to lend a hand of the possible dangers involved with rendering aid. If you are driving a lifting or heavy vehicle, be cautious of sink holes, sudden drops, and other debris hidden under the water. If you are operating watercraft, be careful of things that can puncture your hull or get caught in your propeller. Now that I got that out of the way, please lend as much help as you can give. If you are unable to head down to Texas, please click on the Red Cross link to donate.
The Diesel Brothers aren't the only celebrities lending a helping hand, UFC fighter Derrick Lewis has also been lending a helping hand in his lifted Silverado 2500HD. However, the real celebrities are the brave men and women of the emergency services and armed forces who have been working for days straight without food or sleep to ensure every is safely rescued. These men and women has shown the true spirit and protecting and serving and we could not be more proud of their actions.
