Can’t Beat the Feeling

Year/Make/Model: ’05 Dodge Ram 2500
Owner: Mike Lonie
Hometown: Bedford, New Hampshire
Engine: 5.9L Cummins I-6
Transmission: 48RE five-speed automatic built by Northeast Performance Diesel
Odometer: 121,355 miles
Fuel Economy: Smiles per gallon
Modifications: D&J Precision Machine–built 5.9L, all-billet 48RE with a manual valvebody, Fleece coolant bypass, Exergy 250-percent-over injectors, Exergy 12mm CP3, Exergy Sportsman CP3 pump, PPE dual CP3 kit, FASS 260-gph lift pump, stainless diesel manifold, Hart’s Diesel 2.5 turbo, Turbosmart blow-off valve, Banks Monster intercooler, HP tunes by Innovative Diesel
Owner says: “There is no better feeling than owning a 1,000-plus-horsepower truck that can compete both on the pull track and dragstrip but also be driven down the road to go get groceries. Building a competitive diesel pickup truck isn't just a trend or a fad—it's a lifestyle. The long nights turning wrenches in the driveway is all worth it in those few seconds of adrenaline I get when I'm hooked to a sled or launching out of the hole on the track. It's not about winning or losing, it's about overcoming the adversity of defeat and carnage and never giving up.”

Owner says: “This truck can do it all: daily commute, haul a load, tow a fifth-wheel trailer, go mudding, and rock climb. The truck also does well in sled pull competitions and is raced yearly in multiple NHRDA series races across the country, occasionally wowing crowds in burnout competitions. It has been a long journey since I bought it, and it is definitely a fun ride and sight to be seen.”
