THIS MONTH’S column is inspired by a phone conversation I had with my mother shortly after returning home from my first experience at Truck Trend magazine’s weeklong Pickup Truck of the Year test. “I remember that’s all you used to do when you were little, KJ: play all day with your (toy) cars and trucks,” Mom says. I have to confess, it’s true. While I participated in all the other “normal” childhood activities (riding bikes, spending hours on the playground, competing in various sports, and such), virtual-driving my toy vehicles—and I had hundreds of them—across the floor in the house or through dirt and mud outside was my Zen. As I fast-forward several decades to the present, I can’t help being amazed by and grateful for the fortune I’ve had. Somehow, some…

cummins’ 3-millionth diesel engine for ram trucks has been built

A milestone: Cummins produced its 3-millionth diesel engine for Ram Trucks, and it happened at the Columbus Mid-Range Engine Plant in Indiana. Dodge Ram pickups first received a 5.9L Cummins engine for the 1989 model year. FORD F-150 NOW AVAILABLE WITH OFF-ROAD LEVELING KIT The Ford F-150 continues with its lifetime theme of “firsts.” This time, it’s a leveling kit for ’15-to-’19 four-wheel-drive models. The kit is dealer-installed and includes Ford Performance tuning, aluminum Fox Factory rear shocks, front coilovers, upper front mounts with polyurethane bushings, and a 2-inch front lift. Blue Oval officials say a 145-inch F-150 should gain an approximate 22 percent increase in approach angle and 7 percent increase in breakover angle. The kit is priced at $1,495, which does not include installation fees. MOST STOLEN VEHICLES: IS YOURS HERE? The…

diesels dominate ptoty 2020

I JUST SPENT a great week working with Truck Trend magazine, driving all over Southern California and the Golden State’s Central Coast, testing new pickup trucks for Truck Trend’s Pickup Truck of the Year evaluation. This was my fourth year helping out as a judge and part-time laborer (we move a lot of horse mats that are used as payload and connect/disconnect trailers multiple times during the testing), and I have to say, the event gets better each year. With 11 trucks in the lineup, #PTOTY20 was the magazine’s biggest test effort to date. We had two GMCs (Sierra 1500 and 2500HD AT4), three Chevrolets (Silverado 1500 LTZ, 2500HD LTZ, and Custom), three Fords (Ranger Lariat FX4, F-250 Limited, and Tremor), a Jeep (Gladiator Sport), and two Ram trucks (1500 Rebel…
