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

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
When most people think of classic Ford trucks, images of cowboys, ranchers, and farms in rural U.S. areas pop into their heads, but Ford sold its ubiquitous F-Series trucks north of the border as well.
