KJ Jones

Editor, Diesel Power 133 Articles

While the constant in KJ’s career has been cars, specifically '86-to-present, V-8-powered Ford Mustangs, he has also had a more-than-passing interest in diesel-powered trucks—both big rigs ("because I always had a secret desire to jam gears and push a Cat-powered Kenworth down the highway," he says) and the pickups that are covered by DIESEL POWER. KJ’s labor of love with his 7.3L-powered OBS Ford dualie (lovingly named Big White) proves his devotion to the craft. When he’s not reading, writing, or thinking of content for DIESEL POWER, KJ says he enjoys “messin’ around with stuff” in his home workshop, "goin' (drag) racin'" whenever time and funds permit, and spending time with his lovely wife, Crystal.
