Aaron Kaufman is a celebrity mechanic and fabricator who became famous after appearing in Discovery’s ‘Fast N’ Loud.’
The show is based on Richard Rawlings’ auto-restoration shop, Gas Monkey Garage located in Dallas, Texas.
Aaron used to work in the garage where Rawlings used to visit frequently.
Years later, when Richard opened GMG, he invited Aaron to join his company. However, they parted ways in 2016 after working together for 14 years.
After leaving Gas Monkey, he started his own company, Arclight Fab, which focuses on manufacturing parts for F-100 trucks.
As a truck lover, the company is a dream project for Aaron.
He hopes to supply suspensions, soft goods, chassis, motor programs and electronics for the trucks.
His new show, Shifting Gears with Aaron Kaufman, is set to premiere on March 5, 2018, during Discovery’s Motor Mega Week.
He has become a fan-favorite after working for years on Gas Monkey Garage and appearing its reality series, Fast N’ Loud.
He has accumulated a net worth of $6 million, and it's expected to rise after the release of his new show.
