Comedy legends Tim Allen and Jay Leno butt heads on the latest episode of “Last Man Standing.”

In a Fox News exclusive clip from the comedy series’ episode airing Thursday night, Mike (Tim Allen) regrets convincing Joe (Jay Leno) to use his inheritance money to buy a classic Jeep when he realizes how he intends to restore it.

The former “Tonight Show” host plays a lovable employee who works at Mike’s store, Outdoor Man. Fans first met Leno’s character when he had a recurring role on Seasons 5 and 6.

The all-new episode titled “A Fool and his Money” also features Ed (Hector Elizondo) and Chuck (Jonathan Adams).

“Last Man Standing” is currently in its ninth and final season. Allen previously spoke to Fox News about how he was proud the show lasted for so long on FOX but is also understandably upset to be saying goodbye to another character.

He admitted that going to set every day was “horrible” knowing it was one day closer to the final day of production.
