The July Cummins of the Month contest is live. Please read carefully below, as voting especially, has changed.

THIS MONTH'S THEME IS RED, WHITE AND BLUE. Only trucks in those 3 colors can be entered this month.

  • You no longer vote via LIKES. The last week of each month going forward, a poll will be added to the thread with all the entries and you will have 7 days (or 5, depending on how quick I am to get the poll up and how well the thread is moving) to cast your vote. This is a more traditional way of running things and based on feedback, will be a welcome change.
  • You must own the submitted ride.
  • You can enter 3-5 pics of your ride. I would strongly suggest submitting pics with no people in it (dogs are fine) or at the least, crop them out of it.
  • Feel free to give a little backstory on your ride. Whether that be the modifications it has, how you came to own it, or just a fun story. Don't be afraid to share your ride's story.
  • If you have won in a previous month, you can no longer enter for the rest of the year. However, if you have a second car that meets the above criteria, you can enter that.
The winner at the end of the month will win a free 1 Year Premium Membership for the forum and a custom flair under their username. If the winner is already a premium member, their subscription will be extended an additional year.

Winners will be featured on the sites gallery, found here.

Congrats to June's Cummins of the Month winner, @cabbage658!

This will be fun...so I'll get things started this month.

This is Blue, my '94 sheetbox. It's 12V powered (duh) with a 5 spd. RWD. Has the period correct custom Dodge paint and had Laramie badges on it when it came to me. Laramie didn't constitute much in 1994...lol.

Backstory: I had been looking for a project 12V for a few years and a buddy of mine told me one of his coworkers was selling his. The older gentleman was the second owner and his father-in-law had been the 1st. He basically just wanted to sell it quickly with minimal hassle. Verbal description from my friend told me it met the 3 things I was looking for: it ran, it drove and is wasn't all rusty. It was all stock except for a BD exhaust brake, had 175k miles on it and hadn't been abused getting there. He hadn't even listed it yet when I called on it. He said he wanted $2000 because it wasn't cleaned up. I essentially replied with "Shut up and take my money." It needed brakes REALLY bad and a bit of cleaning right away but other than that it has been great. It's definitely a work in progress but it'll be fun along the way. The 22" wheels and canopy were free so I figured why not. Future plans include engine work to put it in the 450-500 hp range, interior upgrades, paint and lowering.

This is my 2012 ram 3500 with 56k we call the "tow hoe"
Buying this truck was a big deal for me. She replaced my custom 93 1st gen crew cab in had owned for 12 years.

Its a '12 Laramie with all the options. It has an edge cs display screen and efi live tuning. A fleece cheeta turbo with a banks monster ram intake horn. 5 " exhaust with a high flow muffler. Bds lift with fox shocks, 20" fuel wheels and 35" toyos. Spyder projector headlights and an after market grill insert. I built a custom spare tire delete air system for on board air, train horns and top manage my air bags for toying our toy hauler.

Its funny, this truck is the exact same color combo my 1st gen was when I bought it. Coincidence, I think not!!

Brandy's my 2018 Ram 2500 Big Horn Crew Cab 4x4, 27k. Stock with the tow package, excluding the Katzkin Leather interior and Michelin LTX A/T2 LT275 70/R18. Got her to pull Betty, my 5er, but enjoy her so much she's become my daily driver too. Brandy needs a bath after hitting muddy dirt roads last weekend with Betty. 😉 Thankfully a good rainstorm did most of the work for me. 🤗 My wife isn't jealous. She gets to name all our vehicles. :LOL:

This is my 2005 that I bought brand new in 2004. It’s been a great truck with original paint, engine, and transmission with 203,000 miles on it. 5” turbo back exhaust, ATS exhaust manifold, Smeling intercooler, MM3 programmer, outdated K&N cool air intake, leveled, air bags, bumper, goose neck and 5th wheel. Also has a Line-X bed liner. Has pulled VERY heavy loads and has NEVER been a pavement princess. Used for what it was designed for. Take good care of your truck, too dang expensive now. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

2002 Ram 2500 HO Quad Cab 6-Speed
I bought this truck April 13, 2002 directly from the factory via the Military Overseas Buying Program while deployed to the Med. I almost missed the last production day of the 2nd Gen’s due to being extended at sea!
Here's what he's packing… so far:
  • Patriot Blue Pearlcoat w/Bright Silver rckr
  • Banks: 4”exhaust, exhausted side Turbo mod, High Ram, Ottomind, Exhaust Brake
  • BD Exhaust Pulse Manifold
  • BD Boost elbow
  • Cummins Valve Cover Red
  • FASS Fuel Pump
  • A-Pillar Gauges: Fuel Press, EGT, Boost
  • Carhartt gray seat covers fr & bk
  • 3” Suspension Lift
  • Mag-Hytec: Diff Covers Dana 60 & 80
  • Black Rhino Granges 20x9 8x165 -18
  • Toyo ATIIIs35x12.5 Load F
  • BW Turnover Ball & Companion Hitch
  • BW Tow and Stow Hitch
  • Timbren 6klb Bump Stops Rear
  • 35 gal Diesel In-Bed Tank and Pump
  • Borgeson: Steering Shaft and Box
  • BD Track Bar
  • Synergy Heavy Duty Steering Kit
  • Bilstein Steering Damper
  • Slobber tube mod back to tranny
  • And a new PITA fuel level sensor!
I’m not done adding on to it yet, as I’ve only had it for 19 years (every mile of 294786 is mine except for 2).
Twin turbos and all associated with getting it to about 450 hp is coming next!
I replaced the entire front end, vacuum pump, power steering, hydro boost, and Mstr Cyl. last month while doing the lift kit install and the steering upgrades. They were a bear to accomplish, but well overdue. The Ball Joints and Hubs only had 294k on them (just a little stubborn to remove… just a little lol). Anyway, that's my truck.

So basically, the best investment of your life. :ROFLMAO: saved you at least 200k on trucks in 20 years
You know, I never looked at it like that! I've been through four houses since I bought it. Hopefully, the wife will see this logic as well! (hehe, not likely).

Here’s my 2000 2500 with a NV4500.

Rather stock, with only an Edge EZ and I believe something like 40 horse injectors. Bought it in March of 2020, with the front end needing completely rebuilt.

Currently has 240,000 miles, and spends most of its life hooked to a trailer hauling hay, equipment, horses, or something.
