Default Project All The Torques - Cummins 12 Valve Ram 3500

With all the projects I build and all the time spent ferrying them around, borrowing tow vehicles is getting to be a sort of pain in the rear...

Presenting you with my latest project, a perennial hot rod of the workhorse pickup world..

Our new 12V Cummins diesel pickup. Fresh from the rebuilders with a beefed up transmission to boot!

I can work with this...

The all important turbo



Man is this bay neglected



Boy oh boy does she rev to the moon and back! Haha...



Would you look at that mileage...

I see the first part to go, because of the excellent info provided by Mr. Car Guy



While she's old and ugly, I do have all the goodies I could ever ask for...

Dana 60 up front, Dana 80 with a limited slip in the rear all powered via the NP241 HD transfer case. Even I won't break these parts

I've been inspired by the truck below for a while now. And while the ram isn't a classic like this old pickup, I'll do what I can with it anyway.

Just working a ton.. Got a position as an industrial mechanic of sorts that keeps me busy.
This'll be my first project in a while now.

How about you? Have any mods coming down the pipeline for your Mazda?

Nah probably buying something else soon. Just no rush to do so. Maybe a 2.0T ATS.
