Handful of new challenge ideasgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Well, here are my suggestions for new challenges: a bulldozer, a dump truck, a cherry picker, a fork lift, a steamroller, a back-ho, a crane, or just about any kind of construction equipment. They could also build static structures--like mini-bridges--and then test them to see which one is stronger. Also, there would be nothing wrong with repeating old challenges either because no two teams will ever build exactly the same thing and it will always be exciting!
By the way, and just for the record, I share many peoples opinion about disliking the new host and wishing the original duo had been kept!

I like the way this guy thinks. I agree with the idea of the bridge and construction equipment. Not because I've already stated that I wanted to see it but just because I like the way this guy thinks.

Me and my freinds and my co-worker love the show. I don't now if this has been done or not because i have not seen ever show. What about a tracter pull. Have the team make tracter then see how can pull the most weight. I think this would be a great show. thanks, david

I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A SHOW ABOUT HELICOPTERS, AIRPLANES, DRAG RACING BOATS. MAYBE LIKE A MONSTER TRUCK DERBY WHERE THEY HAVE TO BUILD HUGE CARS AND RUN OVER BIG STUFF. OR MAYBE MAKE LIKE SANDRAILS AND TRY TO RACE THEM UP AND DOWN A HUGE MOUND OF SAND LIKE IN THE DESERT.OR MAYBE EVEN SOMETHING LIKE BATTLE BOTS BUT REALLY BIG AND REALLY POWERFUL. I WISH YOU GUYS WERE ON EVERY NIGHT. YOUR SHOW IS MY FAVORITE. I DREAM TO BE ON THERE ONE DAY.YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST.

Arrgghh! I already contributed a few ideas, but here's a couple more I failed to mention the first time around: a street-sweeper [I think everyone loves those, haha], a garbage truck, a monster truck [someone already mentioned that], a fire truck [i.e. take the fire boat challenge onto land], and a hovercraft [OK, that one might be a little far-fetched]. Maybe they could also alter a pair of vehicles and have a destruction derby, as long as it could be carried out safely. Hey, and you could even combine some challenges and make some bizarre "multipurpose vehicles" such as a firefighting street- sweeper, or a seagoing bulldozer, for example. :)
