Built Then Bought: Johnny Gilbert’s 800 hp 2016 Ram 2500 Tow Rig
In the performance automotive world, the saying “built not bought” carries a lot of weight, especially when inexperienced people with deep pockets come into the scene with a truck they obviously know nothing about. Johnny Gilbert and his team at Stainless Diesel have built many trucks over the years, including his ’19 Outlaw Diesel Super

Particulate Matters: Don’t Panic!
“I got a letter from the government the other day. I opened and read it. It said…” While Chuck D, lead MC of old-school rap group Public Enemy, is actually referring to a draft notice in the group’s 1988 hit, “Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos,” that opening line really resonates with me now.

MAN V-12 2000: Twelve Cylinders of Maximum Power for Luxury Yachts
Attempting to cross the high seas in a large luxury yacht requires a significant amount of power. The elaborately decadent vessels displace a tremendous amount of water, so a couple of simple outboard engines definitely aren’t the type of powerplants that can get the big boats moving. Large, high-output diesel engines like the MAN V-12

1995 2WD F-350 Dualie Gets Leveled and A Front-End Upgrade
Age takes its toll on every vehicle, and miles just speed up the aging process. That’s definitely the way it typically works for trucks that see regular duty on streets, highways, farms, and anywhere else they can be driven. Our ’95 Ford F-350, Big White, is a prime example of a rig that’s experiencing both.

Detonation: Cargo Hold
Those of us who regularly use a truck’s bed or a trailer to haul cargo are familiar with what it takes to properly strap things down and the different ways loads can be secured. One method is using a ratchet strap, which is available in what seems like 100 different sizes and styles, from a

Flyin’ High: 2007 Dodge Ram
Dodge hit a home run in 2006 when it introduced the Mega Cab, a truck that has all the room of a luxury sedan in the rear and is still capable of performing normal truck duties. The only drawback back then was that company officials felt owners wouldn’t enjoy a limo-like turning radius, so the

Bad weather has adversely affected most of the major diesel events during the 2019 season, with rain falling and storms raging before, during, and after many of them.

Hybrid 6.0/6.4L Power Stroke Short Block Build
In most racing circles, hearing the phrase “there is no replacement for displacement” at some point is fairly common. And, in most cases, the adage rings true. Increasing cubic inches is a great way to add power and performance to a race engine. When properly built, Ford’s 6.0L Power Stroke is actually a good platform

Eliminating Sway: Improving a 2016 Chevrolet Colorado’s Handling with a Hellwig Rear Sway Bar Kit
The handling characteristics of a truck are an important part of its overall driving dynamics. Being behind the wheel should be an enjoyable time, and there should not be any question about how your vehicle will handle. However, many trucks are not always stable through turns, especially when they are towing or carrying a load

Rotary Diesel: Power Without Pistons
Building a diesel engine that does not use traditional pistons may seem odd, but in today’s modern age of high efficiency, low emissions, and weight reduction, an engine with a nonconventional rotor may be the key to things to come.

Northern Ranger: 1974 Ford F100
