Ford 6.0L Diesel Horsepower Basics
Last month, we introduced a new truck to the Truckin family of project vehicles, a ’04 Ford F-250 6.0L Diesel. It’s a pretty unique truck in that it’s a SuperCab shortbed, as opposed to the crew cab longbeds that make up the bulk of Super Dutys.

2003 Chevy Silverado: Project Over/Under- The Final Chapter

How to replace U-Joints & Balance Your Truck’s Driveshaft
Most people don’t think about replacing the U-joints on their truck until they hear the telltale whine. That’s exactly what happened to us and Project Over/Under recently. With the truck basically complete, we’ve mostly been enjoying it, but we’ve also done a little fine-tuning. We changed out the exhaust—our former kit was rubbing in a

10 Best Marine Diesels
Diesels in the deep blue sea! Or, at the lake, or even down the river. Although oil burners in land-based trucks are our primary beat, there are occasions where we discuss the engines’ performance and capability for maritime vessels, too. With sizes ranging from three-cylinders small (Yanmar’s 3JH40), to absolutely mammoth—by way of the 14-cylinder,

We Get 92 More Horsepower Out of an L92 With a Simple Cam Swap
There it was, an honest-to-goodness, aluminum L92 engine. Don’t get us wrong, we love every single junkyard 5.3L LM7, but they are usually ratty, greasy, and full of rodent droppings. Yes, you heard us right, mice and rats often leave behind evidence that the engine bay was indeed their playground, especially after an engine has

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

What Are Hydraulic Bump Stops?
Hydraulic bump stops—often referred to as air bumps or nitrogen bump stops—provide the ultimate in protection from hard bottoming situations for your off-road rig.

Air Bleeding Made Easy
Sometimes it’s the little things that make your life better. Although it is widely known that under-hood temperatures in diesel trucks can fatigue sensitive components like wiring, connectors, hoses, and more, it’s important to note that time also plays a big role in the degradation of these parts. The longer trucks are in service, the

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.
