Gets Worked
Year/Make/Model: ’01 Dodge Ram 2500
Owner: JR Whitsell
Hometown: Baltimore, Maryland
Engine: 5.9L Cummins I-6
Transmission: BD Performance Transmission
Odometer: 262,454 miles
Fuel Economy: 18 to 20mpg
Modifications: Quadzilla Adrenaline tuner, AirDog 150-gph lift pump, upgraded turbo and injectors, and a bunch of little stuff
Owner says: “It tows and hauls anything: It’s used on the regular for hauling my ’68 Dodge Dart to the track, and it hauls my 18-foot center console (boat) long distances for fishing. It gets worked but still looks good.”

The Log Hauler
Year/Make/Model: ’08 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
Owner: James Darrigan
Hometown: Niles, Michigan
Engine: 6.6L Duramax V-8
Transmission: Allison 1000 six-speed automatic
Odometer: 140,000 miles
Fuel Economy: 18.5 mpg city, 22.5 mpg highway, and 15 mpg towing
Modifications: EFILive with tuning by “Idaho” Rob Coddens, 4-inch exhaust with 5-inch tip, Sinister Diesel EGR cooler, and 285/75R16 Nitto Terra Grappler tires
Owner says: “This is a log-hauling truck, and it’s my third diesel truck in the past year. I’ve had them all: ’06 5.9L Cummins, ’01 7.3L Ford, and now, my 6.6L Chevy. By far, this Chevy takes the cake. With only EFILive, a 4-inch exhaust (with muffler), and a stock intake, it’s putting down a little more than 400 hp to the wheels.”
