The ’21 Ram TRX has moves, it is a gorgeous beast of a truck that exudes luxury and has the performance to back it up. In fact, it is one of the most fantastic pieces of machinery we have ever strapped ourselves in. And that’s no hyperbole, it really is that impressive. Based on the
When we reported on the relaunch of adjustable air suspension gurus AccuAir, we only had their Instagram post and press release to glean information from. While we were happy with the general fact that there would be a future for AccuAir, we still weren’t sure exactly what that future would look like. Well, it was
It has long been said that “good things come to those who wait.” We tend to agree with this ideal, as patience has always proven to be a virtue for us, especially when it comes to executing major vehicle projects. For the last two years, we have been steadily modifying and improving our 1995 Ford

The “Best Diesel Deals on Craigslist” series began in March 2020 with a story about a 1994 Ford E-350 that served in former President Bill Clinton’s motor pool. With this rundown on Houston, Texas, we now have 14 stories covering our search for diesels being privately sold via Craigslist from coast to coast. It’s important
It’s difficult to believe that the Hummer brand has been out of our lives for more than a decade now. We were big fans, mostly due to the brand’s vehicles’ amazing off-road capabilities. However, for as big of fans as we were, there were certainly those who didn’t see Hummer in quite the same light.
While it’s certainly not uncommon to spot lifted 4×4 Sprinter vans cruising Rim of the World highway on the way to Big Bear, California, this past weekend was different. Thousands of van-lifers converged on the small mountain town to attend the (free!) third-annual Adventure Van Expo to peruse new and used camper vans, speak with
Once every month, very early on the second Sunday, car- and “truck guys” gather at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Long Beach, California, to partake in a few hours of treasure hunting at Topping Events’ high-performance swap meet. Now in its 37th year, the Long Beach High Performance Swap Meet is a live, in-person marketplace of
We’ve driven the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2021 GMC Yukon but hadn’t gotten a chance to pilot the third of GM’s fullsize SUV cousins, the all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade—until now. Vastly different than either of GM’s other two family haulers, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade aims to set the bar for what fullsize luxury
Let’s face it: As we continue to navigate through an ever-changing and increasingly challenging world, thankfully there are still a few things in our lives and society that remain as “normal” as they’ve ever been. Yes, despite pandemic conditions in the U.S. and around the world, enthusiasm for trucks—and modifying them–hasn’t waned. As a matter
Since the first introduction of the new Jeep Gladiator, we’ve been waiting patiently for the promised EcoDiesel engine option. Well, that time has finally arrived, and for 2021 Jeep’s fabulous 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6 has joined the 3.6L gasoline V-6 on the Gladiator’s options list. While we recently had the opportunity to jump behind the wheel

It’s always a good time when we get to introduce a new long-term test vehicle. For the next 12 months we’ll be taking a look at the good, the bad, and everything in between of our 2020 Pickup Truck of the Year award winning Ford F-250 Super Duty. With its immense capability, fantastic drivetrain, and
Just like household items, sporting goods, building materials, and pretty much anything else that is offered for sale on Craigslist, a quick search for “Diesel” in the Cars and Trucks section of the popular website presents requestors with an immediate rundown of rigs and rides that are powered by oil-burners. Our series, The Best Diesel
If there is that one product we can’t live without on a camping trip, it’s probably a portable powered fridge. Seriously, we rather have a fridge than a tent, and maybe even a sleeping bag, and if you think that makes us spoiled, we think it’s because you’ve never had the pleasure of eating ice
Terriers are incredible little dogs that are synonymous with tenacity. When they latch on to something they feistily hang on for dear life, never backing down and never letting go. But it’s that same trait that often gets terriers into trouble, especially when they get a long-eared, cotton-tailed rodent in their sights. A terrier will
Diesel Power has been linked with the Outlaw Diesel Super Series—North America’s premiere diesel drag-racing sanction—for nearly five years, in a relationship that has grown from editor KJ Jones simply attending a few events, to the brand joining forces with ATS Diesel Performance in 2016, as a co-sponsor for the very popular 7.70 Index Eliminator.

They say everything is bigger in Texas, which meant in order to stand out Carlos Zapata needed to go bigger than anything he had ever done. Born and raised in Dallas, Carlos was part of a migrant worker family that did a lot of traveling. From picking oranges in Florida to working sugar beets in
