Dan Adams uses his HD truck to pull a trailer full of sleds for his Next Level Riding Clinics, and he’s gussied up the truck and trailer so much we thought you’d enjoy seeing it.
The other day, we had a summit meeting with the editors of 8-Lug, Diesel Power, Truckin’, Mini Truckin’, and RV, and the subject of tattoos came up. Branding your body with someone else’s brand is a pretty bold step to take. We look on with admiration…
Cummins unveiled the company’s first smartphone application, providing job-seeking candidates the ability to interact with 3D versions of its latest engine technologies and search for a new career with the company.
“Our smartphone app connects with candidates everywhere, anytime” said Richard Whitney, global recruiting brand leader. “We are actively hiring new talent and the app is perfect for jobseekers both looking for a new career and conducting company research.” The app’s intelligent display also provides users the ability to navigate through the engine sub-systems manufactured by Cummins simply by touching the screen. It allows for zoom and rotate functionality that gives a close-up look at Cummins’ most popular technologies.
“The virtual engine is the first of its kind for a smartphone app,” continued Whitney. “We wanted to make the science and technology inside a diesel engine accessible and understandable for both middle school students interested in engineering and the experienced automotive engineer looking for a new career. It gives mobile users an insider’s view at the industry-leading technology powering our global growth.”

Love My Truck
Chris Loeppky has been sending us updates as he builds his ½-ton truck, and we’re fascinated by his progress. But, it’s a ½-ton. We can’t really run a feature on the truck in 8-Lug…but we thought maybe you’d be interested in seeing it, so here it is. Here’s some of the new parts he’s installed: idle air control, ignition coil, Holley high-performance throttle body injectors, eight new spark plugs, Grant steering wheel, and clear corner markers on the front grille. Plus, he replaced the stock Chevy Bow Tie on the grille with a chrome version.
