2021 Ford Ranger Tremor: First Look
It was just a few months ago that we were reporting on Ford’s new Ford Performance accessory packages for the 2019 and 2020 Ranger. These packs brought with them bigger tires, unique wheels, Fox shocks, and more. Offered in three different levels, these packs range from mild to pretty darn wild. And, at the end

Big Brake Kits
Modifying pickups (appearance, functionality, etc.) is one of the most subjective elements of the truck hobby. Although adding, subtracting and changing pieces and things is often done after consultation with “experts,” fans, and friends, final decisions ultimately are made by the owner. And though there are no rules or sequences for making upgrades, wheels and

2021 Land Rover Defender 90 Available Now
We were beyond excited for the return of the legendary Land Rover Defender for the 2020 model year. At launch, Land Rover offered the much anticipated four-door Defender 110 model. However, the company had said that a smaller two-door Defender 90 was on the way. Well, we now know what “on the way” meant as

10 Best Readers’ Diesels
“How can I get my truck in the magazine?” We’re confident that through the years, it is the question that editors are asked most frequently, by proud car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or other vehicle owners, who dream of seeing their ride in the pages of their favorite rag.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD
As we continue to maneuver our way through “these unprecedented times,” thankfully, truck manufacturers and vehicle-logistics professionals have implemented new operating procedures that once again enable media to safely receive vehicles to drive and evaluate. In early September, a very special rig joined Chevrolet’s Southern California media fleet: the 2020 Silverado 3500HD that you see

The Classic Off-Road SUV Comparison Test: Battle of the Jeep Alternatives
Peel away the decades of evolution that have softened the modern SUV—independent suspension, leather-trimmed heated seats, rear-seat entertainment systems, power-adjustable pedals—and what do you have left? Heritage from the golden age of off-roading. The term “sport utility vehicle” didn’t exist back then. People were just realizing that vehicles designed for emergency crews and farmers also

What Is a 5-Blade Turbo?
Hard-core diesel enthusiasts already know that “5-blade” is the current hot term in turbo talk that’s posted on web forums and social media networks. For the uninitiated, yes, turbochargers, not cutlery. That’s right, the term is associated with one of the most important pieces of an oil-burner’s overall makeup. Breaking things down a little further,

2019 GMC Sierra Denali—The Re-Runner
We all love custom vehicles, but at some point, it’s time to purchase something that’s reliable and considered a “responsible adult ride.” In 2017, Brian Bush made that purchase when he drove into Henry Brown GMC and purchased his 2017 GMC Sierra Denali. The goal was to have a comfortable commuter truck and leave it

LS Fest Fan Favorite! LSX-Swap 1993 GMC Utility-Box Race Truck

Top 10 Diesel (and Gas) Rat Rods
Wikipedia defines a rat rod as “a custom car with a deliberately worn-down, unfinished appearance, typically lacking paint, showing rust, and made from cheap or cast-off parts. These parts can include non-automotive items that have been repurposed, such as using a rifle as a gear shifter, wrenches as door handles, and old saws as sun

Anatomy of a Magazine Editorial
I’ve been writing magazines for more than two decades.
