Overheard near Plowboy Diesel's dual-engine 1970 Dodge Sweptline: "Why two Cummins diesels?" "Because three wouldn't fit." There's a certain logic to that, one has to admit.

I Just Bought The Cheap Diesel Truck Of My Dreams

  I Just Bought The Cheap Diesel Truck Of My Dreams Call it a guilty pleasure if you must, but there is just something about the second-generation Dodge Ram that won’t let my subconscious rest. I was still very much in my youth when this “new age” body style was first released to the public back in 1994. I think my fondness towards the truck is a culmination of seeing it in person, and seeing it on the silver screen.Whether it was the bright-red long-bed that starred in the blockbuster Twister, or Chuck Norris’ silver steed in the ’90s hit T.V. show Walker, Texas Ranger, this truck had the looks to firmly ingrain lust in any truck-loving individual.

The concept is pretty straightforward. It is a 1970 Dodge farm truck with two Cummins diesels between its front wheels. All it required was a custom-fabricated frame, a new pair of sequential BorgWarner turbos for each engine, and a special gearbox that ties the two engines to a single transmission's input shaft, but who's counting steps?

To keep things running cool, a trio of Icebox radiators were added to the pickup bed to make room up front for a full-width intercooler behind the grille. The bed also is where dual sets of fuel filters stand exposed near the tailgate. The truck runs air brakes and an air-spring suspension, items that we imagine complete the drag-racing-schoolbuses soundtrack. Is there a point? We're not sure, but neither do we care. The truck has two engines. That's all you need to know, really.
