KJones@enthusiastnetwork.com AS “MEDIA drives” (truck manufacturers’ one- to three-day programs that allow journalists and influencers to drive and review new vehicles) go, 2019 has already been a very busy year. The Big Three truckmakers (Ford, GM, and Ram) are rolling out light- and heavy-duty rigs for 2020, and “showing them off” to folks like me is one of their primary objectives—as soon as the opportunity to do so presents itself. Those of you who follow Particulate Matters closely may recall that I attended Ram’s drive event in February 2019 and weighed in on the heavy-duty rigs being showcased on the roads and steep grades surrounding Eldorado Canyon Mine, near Las Vegas, Nevada. With its 6.7L Cummins engine updated to generate 1,000 lb-ft of torque, the new Ram 3500 had (for that moment)…

week to wheelin’

john.lehenbauer@motortrend.com WHILE MANY of you were preparing for the Fourth of July holiday, I spent the week of June 24, 2019 working on the Four Wheeler Network’s second Week to Wheelin’ truck build, a ’74 Ford Bronco, in the Motor Trend Group’s Santa Ana, California, Tech Center. I must say, it was a lot of fun and very rewarding—especially when we got the 302ci engine fired up for the first time on the final day. For those not familiar with Week to Wheelin’, it is the Four Wheeler Network’s version of the Week to Wicked online series (videos and editorial) of car and truck builds performed by the staff members of different Motor Trend Group publications (Hot Rod, Super Chevy, JP, and such). This time, it was Four Wheeler magazine’s turn. Each build…

seth kuntz

SETH KUNTZ is a 24-year-old college student enrolled in the accounting program at Georgia State University. In addition to his studies, Seth is part owner of Kuntz Bros in Jefferson, Georgia. “My interest in automotive and motorsports can be credited to my father’s side of the family,” Seth says. “My grandfather was a mechanic his entire life, and his grandfather started a Chrysler dealership that is still operated by part of the Kuntz family today.” Seth’s focus on diesel engines came from a mutual interest he and his brother Sam share. They were drawn to the diesel industry by oil-burners’ great potential to develop huge amounts of power and torque, while still being able to maintain efficiency and reliability. Another reason is in the engines’ ability to operate using alternative fuels like…

cody lambert

“I’VE ALWAYS had a passion for cars and trucks, or anything fast since I was young,” says 28-year-old Cody Lambert. The Wapakoneta, Ohio, resident followed his passion and works full time at Tater Built Turbo Chargers & Machining. Cody has built several trucks, but his favorite, by far, is the ’07 Dodge Ram 2500 he entered in Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Presented by XDP. “Life happened, and I ended up selling the truck. Then, a few months went by and I was going crazy not having something to wrench on or take to the track, so I pulled the trigger on buying the ’06 Dodge Ram 3500 I have now, which I found in Tennessee for a decent price,” Cody recalls. The truck was already mildly built, but after a few months…

steven lucero

STEVEN LUCERO is co-owner of and light-duty diesel-engine specialist at Black Diamond Diesel Performance and Fab in Las Cruces, New Mexico. During high school, he devoted all his time to playing baseball. But, in addition to playing ball, Steven also developed an interest in diesels after receiving his ’06 Dodge Ram graduation gift. The truck was completely stock and had roughly 130,000 miles on it. Modifications began slowly, but improved performance is what Steven had in mind: “I started with simple box tuners and upgrades like air intakes, exhaust, and such.” After receiving a B.S. from New Mexico State University, Steven had a big decision to make: “Either pursue a job in my field of study or follow my heart and hobby—diesel performance,” he explains. So, in March 2018, Steven and his…
