Rolling Coal – Cummins Stuffed Ford Ranger

April 7th, 2021

Like a little black locomotive, that’s Northbound with the hammer down, this Big Tire Ford Ranger is rolling coal like it’s going out of style. This is one of the most unique looking pickups that we have ever seen. What catches your eye? Is it the massive (14-inch wide) slicks on the rear with the skinnies on the front? Maybe it’s the radiator and fans strapped to the roll cage in the bed? Possibly the Cummins badges strategically placed about the exterior?

With a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph, one would think this truck is pushing 800 to 1,000hp. Not so. The 5.9-liter Cummins swap and turbocharger upgrade only yielded around 600hp. A shot of nitrous helps to get the truck out of the hole, but the astounding 1,300 lb.-ft. of torque is what really makes the cheese more binding. This truck is a real neck-snapper coming out of the hole.

Running in the 7.0 Class, the Ranger makes it through the time trials with some degree of success. On the final pass, he snaps a universal joint like it was made of toothpicks and aluminum cans. That’s the price you pay for big torque. We’ll be seeing a lot of this truck in future No Prep events.
