80s or 90s movie where a man arms a garbage truck to act out revenge.

So this is an american movie about a guy whose brother or other family member is harmed or murdered and he decides to take revenge on the perputrator. I want to say that the perputrator is a gang of some sort. In any case, he arms up a garbage truck with automatic weapons and what not and decides to take out the perputrators which I think is a gang because he is attacking several people and there are car chases in the movie. I want to remember the movie being very grim and "dark".

I saw this movie in the late 90s on TV and I think it was from the 80s.

"Another deleted garbage truck chase scene. John and Caroline are driving in garbage truck but they are attacked by gang members"
