bench racing always learning

One of the things I enjoy most about this job is the relationships—the new people I get to meet and work with on a regular basis. Because I have been in this industry since I was 17, I really was a fan first and grew up idolizing certain innovators/racers/manufacturers. As a kid, I was always hoping I could be even a fifth of what they were; hoping that one day, I’d be able to do some of the great things they had; hoping that I could be just as knowledgeable about diesel as they were. That’s probably the number-one biggest thing that made me even more excited to stop building trucks for a living and start building magazines/websites/etc. Now, I get to rub elbows with some of the best in our industry…

OEM NEWS CHEVY SILVERADO 4500S, 5500S AND 6500S BEGIN TO SHIP The all-new Chevrolet Silverado 4500, 5500 and 6500 HD cab-and-chassis trucks—the first medium-duty Silverados ever produced—are now in production and beginning to make their way to dealerships. The new medium-duty trucks are said to be popular with upfitters because of their clean, straight frame rails being void of rivets, brackets or welds that get in the way. On top of that, seven cab-to-axle lengths are available and can work for a variety of upfits. So far, the strongest interest in the 4500, 5500 and 6500HDs has stemmed from the housing and construction industries. FORD ISSUES MASSIVE BLOCK HEATER RECALL Ford Motor Company recently issued a recall for some 874,000 Super Duty and F-150s built between 2015 and 2019 that are equipped with…

Jake Cambria, owner of The Truck Shop in Naples, Florida, is the kind of guy who looks to support those who protect and serve us. Over the years, he has been delivering food, water and supplies to first responders and victims affected by hurricanes, wildfires and other natural disasters along the Gulf Coast while working within his community to raise awareness. At only 24 years old, Jake has built his shop from a single-bay storage unit in 2014 to a four-bay 5,000 square-foot shop these days, catering to high-end truck builds. Last year, he overhauled a 2016 Ford Super Duty DRW dubbed “Back the Blue” in support of law enforcement. While on a supply run with the truck this past summer to help bring supplies to those affected by Hurricane Harvey in…

one of one ram

Brandon Davis took nearly three and a half years to build his '07 Ram 2500; and, to this day, he’s still working on it, adding more and more. Sick of cookie-cutter crew cab show trucks, Brandon decided to take a different path and build something the other trucks weren’t: a regular cab, with lots of power and a completely custom suspension. It all started after a bad quad accident made Brandon rethink riding. He still loved off- roading and sand dunes but needed something else to blast around in. A regular cab Dodge seemed like the perfect choice. It would be simple, capable and attention-grabbing. So, he started building. Brandon began his project by doing something that 99.9 percent of truck owners don’t do: He bought a truck with 28,000…

my brother’s keeper

By now, we’re used to seeing diesels at the dragstrip, but when we saw the Marines-inspired drag truck of Dorian Reyna, we stopped in our tracks. From the World War II “Flying Tigers”- inspired wrap to the graphics and rivets, the whole truck just invited questions. And that’s why Dorian built it. The truck was designed to bring attention to the estimated 22 veterans who take their own lives every day—a statistic that affects many, including Dorian. “So many friends and fellow military, including me, have lost loved ones.” he pointed out. With a flying flagship that promotes such an important cause, Dorian wanted to build a truck that would inspire—which means it probably wasn’t going to be a 17-second-bracket truck. Through his shop, Power Stroke Enginunities (PSE), in Houston, Texas, Dorian was…
