Our story

Purposeful engineering,
passion & drive

Building the best rides in the business

Metal & Gas was born out of our founder Bryan’s passion for early model Ford Broncos. We continue to build these trucks, completely reborn using only top-of-the-line components. But his dream didn’t stop there. At Metal & Gas, we take the very best brands and models and give them a 21st-century makeover. All of our builds are designed and custom built-in our Columbus, OH shop. Our rides are the highest quality and the most desired on the market… and once you see one, you’ll know why!

Bryan Rood – CEO

Never standing still, always pushing to get the best from ourselves, for our drivers. Building iconic builds that celebrate our past while embracing the future through bold design, original styling, purposeful engineering and a genuine passion for the drive.

Bryan's Greatest Achievement

For the Journey

Bryan’s been designing and building rides since 2005. The difference between Metal & Gas and our competition is Bryan’s attention to detail and eye for design. Bryan’s approach has always been to complement the classic design with modern performance and reliability… and to settle for nothing less than the best.

For the Adventure

Bryan manages every project that Metal & Gas takes on from start to finish. If you purchase a vehicle from us, Bryan will walk you through the process and is always available to consult on design decisions. He stands by his product and signs off on every truck that leaves the shop. You can be sure that your ride will be the one-of-a-kind you’ve always dreamed of!
