Lane Wakeland’s 2006 Dodge 2500 “I’ve had some quite ‘wild’ builds over the years,” said Lane Wakeland. “And I figured it was time to build something that is reliable through and through. The first thought that came to mind was an ‘06 Dodge 5.9 with quality transmission work. So that was the plan, and so far it has been accomplished!” Lane’s favorite part is that these trucks are what got him into his love for diesels. “My stepfather had a 2nd-gen followed by an early 3rd-gen before then getting an ‘07 5.9,” Lane says. “I’ve always enjoyed how well the trucks have performed.” Plans are in pla ..read more

Diesel World Magazine

2w ago
Firsthand Tips from a facebook group This is what I did/learned while doing a G56 swap on a 4th-gen Mega Cab Laramie. Everyone asks what it costs to do a swap, and this is by far the cheapest way to do it. It’s definitely not the easiest as there is a lot of hard work involved. It may be better for some to just pay $10-15,000 to a shop to get it done, but this is what worked for me. Dissecting the Donor  I bought a whole running/driving donor truck: a 2007 Ram 2500 6.7 4×4 with a freshly rebuilt G56 AD and dual disc SB clutch and hydraulics for $6,500. This gave me every single part I nee ..read more

Why Ceramic Coating for Cars Is a Summer Essential
Diesel World Magazine
by Diesel World Staff
3w ago
As the summer season approaches, many car enthusiasts and owners start preparing their vehicles for the harsh conditions that come with the warmer months. Hot weather can affect a car’s paint or top layer. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures and direct sunlight can cause several issues: Fading, Cracking and Peeling: Over time, intense heat and UV rays from the sun can cause the paint and clear coat to expand and contract, break down the chemical bonds in the paint, leading to fading and discoloration over time. Oxidation: Heat can accelerate the oxidation process, causing the paint to beco ..read more

Cody Helms’ 12-Valve Cummins-Powered Dodge 2500 For those who have a competitive nature, getting past the ‘if you’re not first, you’re last’ mentality when things don’t go as planned is far easier to say than do—especially when it comes to racing. Most would think that those with the fattest wallets ultimately rule the track, and while there may be some unfortunate truth to that, knowledge and determination have proven to be just as valuable when it comes to posting the fastest times. Starting Line  Just like most of us, Cody Helms of Ruby, South Carolina, doesn’t have an unlimited bank a ..read more

Optimizing Airflow: Upgrading Project Stockish’s 3.0L Duramax
Diesel World Magazine
by BRANDON BURRELL
3w ago
Helping Project Stockish Breathe Better With the rise of OE manufacturers adding smaller diesels to their trucks and SUVs, it’s important for aftermarket companies to make parts to help the diesels run better and more efficiently. Most of the big vehicle manufacturers have a small-platform diesel as an option that automatically gets more miles per gallon than most of the big V-8 engines in today’s vehicles. For this project, I picked up a 2023 GMC Sierra with the 3.0L Duramax that is commonly referred to as the baby Max. Even though this engine doesn’t provide as much towing and torque as its ..read more

Brian Rogers’ 7.3L Power Stroke-Equipped ’48 Ford Tractor When most people first look at this 1948 Ford tractor, the general sentiment across the board is pure and utter bafflement—but in a good way. Clearly, it holds the shape of a piece of farm equipment, but it has been restyled in the fashion of a high-performance, hot rod inspired diesel rig, which it now truly is. The state of confusion that settles in after an initial introduction brings with it a ton of questions about what exact modifications have been rolled out to make it look this way. Well, the short answer is a lot of creative tw ..read more
