Ford article... Kinda? Cummins Powered Ford Ranger...

Okay Guys,

Here is my article on Matt Conrad's Cummins Powered Ford Ranger. I know that it is also in DP and DW but here is my version. I really would like to know what you guys think, especially if you have seen or read the other articles.

It is kinda funny that we all shot the kid's truck at the same show but ended up with different results. I included a build with my article and my photo shoot was done on a large dirt hill rather than on grass and asphalt. We also ran the truck on the cover since we had cover worthy photgraphy. I think my article is much better than the others but I am a little biased, what do you guys think?

I hope you like the article either way, and I think this kid (he is 17) has a bright future in the automotive industry, with his talent I think he will go far!!!

Take it easy,
CT

That's why I am OK with it being in all 3 major Diesel mags... It is worthy of it and the fact that it was built by a kid who is only 17-years old now is icing on the cake!!! Matt is talented and deserves the recognition for his work!

Good article Chris.

At first I thought you were talking about a different truck. One that was at SDX last year, and has twins on it.

Its funny... I personally know shops that have worked on both of them!!!
