After the Dukes help their friend “Hard Luck” Jones get away from the revenuers, they try to get him to stop making moonshine and start farming like everybody else in the county. However, Hard Luck gets the idea to steal Boss Hogg’s armored personnel carrier to build a new still in, unaware he and Rosco have a stash of contraband cigarettes hiding under the floorboard. When Bo and Luke go over to Hard Luck’s farm to help get his fields ready to plant, they discover the carrier stored away in his barn. They then decide to move the carrier off of Hard Luck’s land, only to have it break down their own land. When Hard Luck hears about the predicament the Dukes are in with the carrier, he decides to make a new still in it. But when Uncle Jesse finds tracks on his property, he follows them straight to where Hard Luck is at and orders him to stop making his new batch of moonshine.
