January 2018 Cummins, Feature My Truck, Feature DT Staff

Take a deep breath: this truck has a lot done to it! It’s got a new performance 5.9 Cummins long block that’s been powder-coated purple, with a bored/surfaced block, new pistons, rings, bearings, engine gasket set, valve job/surface head. It also has new guide seals; ARP head studs; a camshaft, valve springs, lifters, and pushrods all from Hamilton; Fleece coolant bypass, 60hp injectors, Industrial Injection main girdle, 12-valve rods, and a high-horsepower cold air intake. It has the Mads Smarty Touch tuner, an S&B intake horn and cold air intake, and a 64/67 Tater built turbo.

Next, it has a new stage 3 billet transfer case. At the same time, I got a new lifetime warranty radiator along with a billet transmission. The truck just got the entire 4x4 shaft rebuilt with a lifetime warranty at Napa. I just got some new 33 Toyo open country R/T mud tires on 962 Moto Metals 20/12 wheels. It's got air bags in the back, a 2.5-inch leveling kit in the front, full replacement body guard front bumper, 5 percent window tint all the way around. Finally, there’s a B&W turnover ball in the bed, Halo headlights and a new 2-inch cowl hood with color-matched grille, and a Kenwood radio with 12-inch Kenwood subs and kicker door speakers. 

Black smoke don't mean it's broke!

Many can say they’ve completed a triathlon, but how many can say they’ve won a gold medal in the triathlon at the Olympics? Many can say they’ve flown an aircraft, but how many can say they’ve done it in space? Being one of only a few is special. It’s unique. It sets you apart from others and in the truck scene, only 250 lucky diesel pickup enthusiasts will have the honor of saying they own and drive the slick design of the 2021 Ford Shelby F250 Super Baja.
