First Drive 2020 Jeep Wrangler EcoDiesel
For nearly 33 years, Jeep’s uber-popular Wrangler (preceded by the legendary “CJ” Series) has symbolized “the ultimate” in off-road–ready sport-utility vehicles—trucks that, when purchased new or used, can be taken into the boonies immediately after closing the deal.

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.
