I was talking a friend the other day who is a truck guy, and he asked me my advice on a diesel pickup truck. I’m not one to go around spouting off random opinions…oh wait…that is exactly what DT is, so I AM someone to go around spouting random opinions, so here goes; don’t buy a newish diesel pickup with one of them fancy twin-turbo common rail diesel V8s mated to a 8-speed auto and instead always insist on a classic diesel inline-6 single turbo and a manual gearbox like this next Cummins ISB 5.9 powered beasty.

What is red, white, and can pull its own motor? Yeah. a Dodge pickup with a forklift hanging out the back. The fork lift pickup might seem like an odd vehicle, but I’ve seen many running around the street hauling dumpsters from behind apartment complexes to the street for the big trash machine to do […]
The Dodge Ram SRT-10 isn’t pretty, nor is it sporty. It isn’t really a pickup or a sports car. It is a physics defying 3-ton hunk of metal powered by a 500 horsepower V10, with room for a few adults, a few mangy dogs, a BBQ grill, and $500 of groceries. It is as if […]
If you enjoy the clack-ity-rack-ity sound of a good diesel, then look no more because the Cummins 12 Valve inline-6 is the heavy fuel burning engine that you want in your pickup. The 5.9 are legendary for reliability, ruggedness, and surviving all kinds of abuse because they were an industrial/tractor engine that somehow ended up […]

Unlike everything else posted on these pages, this next feature is a car that you don’t want to own, but I’m going to post it because the description is priceless. The short version is that the van is likely cursed and has crashed into multiple objects, including a John Deere tractor, and a loaner vehicle […]
Ford beat Dodge (and Chebby) to the full sized performance pickup game with the 1999 release of the F-150 Lightning (there was an earlier Lightning, but it wasn’t that fast all things considered) and the nuts at Chrysler’s SRT (Street & Racing Technology) division realized that they needed to compete. So the engineers who built […]
