BAD NEWS FOR THE WORLD’S FASTEST 6.4L ROCKY TOP CARNAGE Unfortunately for the Rudy’s Performance Parts crew, the Rocky Top Diesel Shootout didn’t go as planned. The company’s Pro Mod F-250 suffered a damaging brush with the wall on Friday, which kept them out of the main show on Saturday. Out of the gate the pass looked good, but somewhere near the 330-foot mark the truck took a hard right into the wall. Luckily, driver Rawlings Barnes emerged unscathed and unaffected by the wreck. The unofficial word was that the Rudy’s team would know the true extent of the damage the Monday after the wreck, and that they would do whatever they could to get the truck back on the track. Barnes and the guys at Rudy’s were second in Pro…

project looks. muscle. longevity

Project Looks. Muscle. Longevity is back for another round of aftermarket bolt-ons for the ninth part of the major overhaul of our 2012 Silverado HD. This month things get serious, and we’re lifting the cab to install the first batch of major upgrades under the hood. The 2011-2016 LML runs well in stock form and made 496 hp in this truck with the Edge Evolution tuner, FASS lift pump and some basic bolt-ons. The factory turbocharger should support 520-530 hp, but, thanks to our fuel rail pressure dropping at wide-open throttle, getting that extra 40 hp wasn’t going to happen with the tired injection pump. Since we’d planned on doing some exhaust manifolds, bigger injection pump, modified VGT turbocharger and some high-flow charge air piping on the truck, it’s easier…

In the Monster Jam world of Monster Trucks, big, loud and blown methanol engines have ruled the roost for years, but there is another force rising on the horizon. The BroDozer Monster Truck is the newest member of the Monster Jam family and since it was inspired by the original BroDozer that Dave Sparks (a.k.a. Heavy D from the Diesel Brothers TV show) and his crew built, it was appropriate that it would be powered by a diesel engine. The original BroDozer was a Ford truck with a Power Stroke diesel but the Monster Jam team turned to the crew at Wagler Competition Products to build a stout Duramax engine to power this monster. Just moving a 13,000-pound truck with 66-inch-tall by 45-inch-wide BKT tires requires a ton of grunt, and…

ultimate brush truck

They’re big. They’re four-wheel-drive, and they fight fires where their bigger brothers can’t. They’re known as wildland engines, patrol pumpers, grass rigs and Type 3-7 engines, but to firefighters and civilians alike they’re best known as “brush trucks.” Because fires don’t exclusively occur along paved streets, these heavily accessorized and often customized rigs are born from the necessity of being able to access fires out in the field, the timber, and in many other remote landscapes. And because they have to be capable of traversing all types of terrain, the fire departments that spec them out often find themselves making them even more versatile after the initial purchase. Even though it had already treated its ’16 F-550 to a super single conversion and added Mickey Thompson Baja MTZs mounted to 20x11-inch…
