Big Trucks Duke it Out: Full Size Pickup Comparison
MORE FULL SIZE TRUCK COMPARO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
We see it every Friday during our evening commute. A stream of vehicles
choking the freeway, headed out to the Mojave Desert or the Colorado River
for some well-earned weekend stress relief.
The fun varies, from camping to dirt-bike riding to water-skiing. But the
vehicle that invariably gets tasked with hauling the corresponding
equipment is a full-size pickup truck. You know, like the 2009 Chevrolet
Silverado 1500, 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, 2009 Ford F-150 or 2009 Toyota Tundra.
Sure, we talk about the virtues of the minivan as a family hauler, and
there are many. But the minivan stands no chance against a looming 25-foot
camping trailer. And SUVs are easily flummoxed by motocross bikes and the
need to carry their smelly gas cans (or anything that's remotely dirty,
actually) in the vehicle's cargo area.
There's nothing like a pickup, with its big bin in back that doesn't care
what you toss into it. And the truck is sure to be around long after the
full-frame SUV falls completely out of favor and descends into the
three-row car-based sensibility that is the crossover.
Super-Overloaded Pickup Truck in Thailand
Just a sample of what you can expect to see on the roads of Thailand; utter
lunacy. This is certianly a big part of why there are so many terrible
accidents on the roads of Thailand. This was shot less than an hour outside
UPDATE: On Nov 23rd, 2011 the TV show "Mythbusters" actually used part of
this video in one of their min-myth segments. I'm very grateful to that
overloaded truck, now!!

1934 Ford Pickup Golden Rocket J2
This is one of the baddest trucks around! It's a '34 Ford pickup that has a
1957 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket J2 371 cubic inch V8 mated with a Packard 3
speed manual gear box with overdrive! In 1957 the tri-powered J2 was
outlawed from Grand National Nascar halfway through the season! They came
stock with 312hp and 415lb/ft of torque! This one has a high performance
cam, Mickey Thompson forged aluminum rods and pistons, and has been stroked
and bored for a ton of power! There's also a new radiator, and the total
CFM for the carburation is 870CFM! The rear end of the truck is a Ford 8.8
with 3:73 posi so you can really lay down the rubber! The frame has ASC
rails, a C.E. cross member, C.E. parallel leafs, a SoCal 4 inch dropped
axle, SoCal hair pins, Vega steering, and 1940 Ford front brakes. There's a
really awesome sounding set of un-cappable side exit Exhaust headers, Coker Classic wide white tires,
very nice glass, a shortened bed, a channeled cab, and it sits just right!
The interior is very simple, with a nicely upholstered bench seat, and a
Stewart Warner speedometer and gauges. This truck is slated to appear in
Rebel Rods magazine! It's super solid, built right, and completely hauls

1979 Dodge Little Red Express: The Original Muscle Truck -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's the Granddaddy of the muscle truck. The original gangster, and the one
that broke the mold when it came to straight-line American speed in the
late 1970's. The Little Red Express Truck was a twin-stacked, small block
powered pickup truck from Dodge that was you're worst nightmare if you
happened to own a Ferrari 308, Trans Am or Corvette back in 1978 or 1979.
Big on style as well as performance, the Little Red's are some of the
rarest and coolest trucks to ever come out of Detroit, and with the power
to back up the looks, it's no wonder they've generated a cult following
amongst dedicated enthusiasts.
