Patrick Allen's Truck Next Door

Chula Vista, Calif.

April 2017 Cummins, Feature My Truck, Feature DT Staff

This truck is a 2016 RAM Laramie 2500 HD with an IL-6 6.7L Cummins engine. We call it El Rojo Grande. My wife got the name from one of her kindergarten children at the school where she worked. The truck is still a virgin: just 3,299 miles on it. The modifications done so far are a Leer model 122 camper shell and BedRug carpet kit, cargo box, LED Lights, DeeZee tailgate assist, 28-inch Assault LED Radius light bar, Nilight 2PCS 18-watt Flood LED Work Lights, 35 percent tint on the driver and passenger windows, five percent limousine tint on the rear doors and camper shell windows, and the OEM Ram mud flaps.
I am also going to put an air compressor on the truck and a Titan 55-gallon Midship Polyethylene Fuel Tank. Basically, I use my truck as my daily driver. It is equipped the way I wanted it equipped, not the way the car salesman wanted me to buy it. If I need to haul something I know I can get the job done. Without trucks and truck drivers, America stops!
