[show]Rick's truck in the show was a 'Macho Power Wagon,' a series of specialty 4x4 trucks manufactured by Dodge from 1977 through 1981, part of the 'Adult Toys' campaign to appeal to younger buyers. The main truck used in the show was a 1979 model long bed in sierra red with special Macho paint job and decals. Midway through the first season, a second truck was added, a 1980 Dodge long bed 4x4 cloned to look like the '79 Macho. The easiest way to tell the difference between the two trucks is in the roll bar. The '79 Macho roll bar is padded and has perfectly straight diagonal supports. The '80 Macho clone uses an after-market roll bar that isn't padded. Also, the diagonal supports bend horizontally before adjoining the main bar. Shots often alternate between the two trucks in the same scenes.
- On the show, Rick is a few years older than A.J., but in reality Gerald McRaney (Rick) is only four months older than Jameson Parker (A.J.).
- Rick and A.J.'s mother in the show is named 'Cecilia' which is also the name of a hit song recorded in 1970 by Simon & Garfunkel, written by Paul Simon.
