Following the success of the documentary, the Discovery Channel approached James with an offer to host a new show called Monster Garage where James and a crew of mechanics modified vehicles under a short deadline.
James later established Payupsucker Productions, under which he produced shows like History of the Chopper, Iraq Confidential with Jesse James and Green Scream, in which James plans to break the land speed record with an eco-friendly hydrogen car.
James said the fines were excessive and intended to make an example of him due to his company's fame and his celebrity marriage to actress Sandra Bullock, but CARB spokesmen stated their enforcement efforts were aimed at the entire custom industry, and further that they were aware of no offer by West Coast Choppers to recall the motorcycles in question.
In July 2008, James faced a 2,680 breach of contract lawsuit from Michael Jones, a customer who hired James to build him a custom car, who contended that after paying 0,000 over two years, the car was not completed, and that James informed him that it would cost between 0,000 and 0,000.
However, given the couple's separation and then divorce, Bullock continued the adoption of the baby as a single parent.
In conjunction with that appearance Marvel Comics created a special one-shot comic book where he evades death once again after considering retirement, and made it available in comic book stores for free distribution.
In November 2013 Jesse James Firearms Unlimited unveiled its first two firearms, a 1911 pistol and AR-15 rifle.
In 2000, the Discovery Channel made the documentary Motorcycle Mania, which chronicled James's everyday life.
Jesse James also appeared in the Tony Hawk's Underground 2 video game, and was the focus of a show chronicling some of the custom builds at Austin Speed Shop in his TV series, Jesse James: Outlaw Garage, which ran a shortened single season in 2012 on the Discovery Channel before being canceled.
James has also built and is racing an off-road Trophy Truck and a Figure-8 race car.
