I have a 2008 Ford F250 that I have spent a lot of time on. It's leveled with 20x12 gear alloy 726 wheels with Mickey Thompson ATZ's 325/50/20 tires. It's deleted with waste gate and studded. I also had the heads ported and hardened. I've also upgraded valve springs and pushrods with 6.0 manifolds. The intake is ported as well, along with an S&B cold air intake that I installed. The fuel system has ported rails with 30 percent over injectors and an AirDog 165 pump. I later rebuilt the transmission with new Rev Maxx parts. I've really put a lot of hard work and effort into making this truck perfect for me, and I think that, as bulletproof and as powerful as I've made it, I have the perfect daily driver. This truck truly is capable of handling anything.

I bought my Chevy Duramax LBZ new in 2006. Having grown up on a farm I’ve always had a passion for diesel engines. I pursued my passion in 2011 at the age of 24 and started my own company, Punisher Performance. Since then the business has grown tremendously. I did my own EFILive tune, bought a SunCoast transmission kit, which I rebuilt myself. I later installed PPE Dual Fuelers, a Fleece 68mm Cheetah turbo, an AirDog 165 lift pump and a series of supporting mods to make my Duramax ready to race. I started racing at national level events in 2011, entering in the NHRDA Sportsman class and bringing home a win from my first race ever, a very overwhelming experience for me at the time. I’ll always be a farmer at heart, but now I’m reaping big yields in another form: horsepower.

This is my 2006 Dodge Ram. I have been building it since the start of 2013 from base stock. Today it is a 596 hp daily driver that I use to take to local shows, events, drag races and local dyno events. The truck started with the basics, Sinister exhaust and intake elbow, Airaid filter intake and then it took off from there. The truck currently sits with a 200 gph FASS system, PPE Dual Fueler kit, Mishimoto intercooler and radiator, water/meth and tuning from ATP trucks. Future plans are to build a 750 hp daily driver that can hold its own on the street and strip. Once this Ram is finished, it'll be one tough truck to beat.
