What Is a ¾-ton Truck?
It’s a question we get all the time. What is a 3/4-ton truck? The confusion is understandable, as the terminology dates back many decades. The terms half-ton, 3/4-ton, and 1-ton are generally used to describe different classes of pickup trucks, based on how much payload the truck is able to carry. Naturally, as the years

Cummins Diesel Engine Explodes on Dyno, Literally Throws Piston into Stands
