Discovery is prepping a series with Fast N’Loud star Aaron Kaufman.

Produced by Pilgrim Media Group, Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman will follow the mechanic in his new shop, Arclight Fabrication, in Dallas, Texas.

Joined by a team of builders from around the country, Kaufman’s goal is to test his creations in some of the harshest conditions known in the auto world.

Along the way, Kaufman will speak to some of the top experts in the country, all while pushing the boundaries of vehicle performance.

For the team’s first major build, Kaufman transforms an Ultra4 truck into one of the toughest models ever created. His goals for the build are to see it perform on asphalt as well as off-road terrain, ultimately competing in the “King of the Hammers” — one-day off-road race which combines rock crawling with high-speed desert racing.

Pilgrim Media Group’s Craig Piligian and Eddie Rohwedder serve as executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Craig Coffman and Todd Lefkowitz are executive producers.

Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman premieres March 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery.
