Lucas Garcia's Truck Next Door

Sandpoint, Idaho

March 2017 Cummins, Feature My Truck, Feature DT Staff

This is my 2007 Dodge 3500 Mega Cab dually with a 5.9L Cummins and 48re 4-speed automatic transmission. We have owned it since it was new and have no plans of getting rid of it. Performance modifications include an aFe Blade Runner exhaust manifold, BD Xflow intake horn, BD Killer B turbo with a BD exhaust brake attached to it, aFe 4-inch exhaust and aFe stage 2 intake, and a Raptor 150 lift pump. I run a custom EFILive tune. The transmission has a triple disk converter, Billet input shaft, custom valve body with Transgo shift kit, Derale tranny pan, and a Derale remote transcooler with a fan. ProComp Ultralite gauges (pyro, boost, and trans temp) help me keep this old girl safe. On the exterior, it has a Procomp 4-inch lift dressed with Alcoas and 255/70/22.5 tires. It also has a Proline front bumper, Spec-D headlights and taillights, a Protech headache rack, Line X bed liner, and a Highway Products toolbox. Future plans include adding a s475 and 90hp nozzles. This is my daily driver, but I also use it to haul equipment and occasionally our 40-foot 18klb Nuwa Hitchhiker fifth wheel. My wife and I did all the work to this truck ourselves. It's very reliable, fun to drive and tows like a beast.

The rest of the world is beginning to wake up, but the sounds of an active manufacturing plant have been ramping up for hours. This small population town is the headquarters for fusion bumpers, a custom bumper manufacturer for nearly 15 years...
