This Daily Driven Cummins Might Be the Ultimate Utility Sleeper
For many things in life, looks can be deceiving. I think that this trend holds especially true when we consider the world of racing. Sometimes, this concept comes to life because someone wants to build something different. Other times, people wrenching on these vehicles just love the shock value. I mean, how cool is it to see the unlikely hero beating up on those shiny new sports cars?
Even though something might not look fast on the surface, you really never know what’s hiding out under the hood. It could pack a lot harder of a punch than anyone had expected. The world of diesel trucks has been growing in terms of the straight line performance. It’s still a lot of fun to watch these super heavyweights make clean passes down the strip, though!
This time, we check out a Dodge that means business. This Cummins powered Dodge Ram might look like a street truck on the surface. In fact, it is a street truck as it operates as a daily driver. However, when we dig deeper and get to see this thing really rip, it ends up being more than meets the eye. This thing absolutely leaves the competition in its dust as it heads down the quarter-mile impressively.
Down in the video below, we really get up close and personal with this build, finding out what really makes it tick. There’s something about watching such a big truck make its way to single-digit elapsed times that makes the hair on the back of our necks stand at attention.
This one didn’t come without a bit of adversity, either. It just so happened that the road didn’t play nice for this group of guys but with a little bit of creativity, they would overcome! What fun would it be if the entire operation ran smoothly, anyway?
