Discovery Channel is prepping a vehicle building series set in the extreme and treacherous Alaskan terrain.

Produced by Missoula, Montana-based Warm Springs Productions, Last Outpost features backcountry builders Clint Greathouse and Todd Anderson who create unique builds in their remote outpost CT Mad Modz. The best friends use only recycled parts, along with their creativity and determination to achieve their main goal of keeping the off-gridding tradition thriving in Alaska.

The series kicks off with a build using an old military aircraft tug-vehicle. The duo builds a monster tow truck that can go anywhere, haul anything and conquer the unforgiving terrain for the owner of an outback search and rescue tow service.

Throughout the season, Greathouse and Anderson’s other custom builds include an all-terrain wheelchair, a sawmill built from a school bus, a mining sluice rigged to an ATV, and a swamp and hunting boat created from an old military transport.

For Warm Springs Productions, executive producers are Marc Pierce, Christopher Richardson, Ajax Broome and Ken Snow, with co-executive producer Trevor Baierl. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Boyle is executive producer alongside associate producer Jessica Mollo.

Last Outpost premieres April 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
