2003 Chevy Silverado- Project Over/Under
We’re finally calling it done. The $500 work truck we picked up well over a year ago has had all manner of work done to it, and the miles we have put on it both on and off road are proof of the quality of work we performed on the truck as well a testament

#PTOTY20 – Day 4 Recap: Light Off-Roading and Shenanigans
If you called the folks at Jeep and asked them how many people go off-roading in their Wrangler, they would tell you around 75%. Other makers of off-road products will also cite similar numbers. But what type of off-roading are they talking about? There’s no way they’re talking about the Hell’s Revenge trail in Moab,

2016 Chevy Silverado- The Final Trade
Most people make about four to five vehicle trade-ins in their lifetime, but Rickey May of Jacksonville, Florida, had his fourth trade within a year. “I just couldn’t find something I knew I would be happy with,” Rickey tells Truckin, “I actually went through fifteen different trade-ins in a two-year period.

#PTOTY20 – Day 3 Recap: Fuel Economy and Seaside Photos
Fuel economy runs aren’t fun. Climbing into a truck first thing in the morning, hitting standstill traffic on the 405 and driving for a few hours isn’t a vacation. However, it is necessary for proper vehicle testing, and at the end of the day we could hang out at the beach. So maybe it’s not

#PTOTY20 – Burnouts and Roasting Tires
Ever since the dawn of the automobile, humans wanted more and more power. Why did they want this power? To perform epic, smoky burnouts, of course. Whether it’s a proper muscle car, a family hauler, or the latest pickup truck. With tons of horsepower and even more torque, trucks are burnout machines. We have 11

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

2007 GMC Yukon XL- Loss to Legacy
We live in weird times. If you don’t believe us, just ask Tony Neumann of Franklin, Indiana. If we told you that a traumatic event could spark a form of creativity that embodied Tony that would be an understatement. Tony first got bit by the bug when he was just a sixteen-year-old kid in Indiana.

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.

1989 Toyota Pickup- Oscar
One of the main characters on the TV program Sesame Street was a trash-loving green puppet named Oscar the Grouch.

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.
