The new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has proven to be a big hit with the American truck market in its short existence, but before the EcoDiesel hit the market Ram 1500 owners were forced to build their own half ton diesel trucks. DF member dodgetrucker75 is currently going through all of the steps of building his own Cummins-powered Dodge but rather than using an inline-6 Cummins from the Ram heavy duty lineup – he went with the smaller 4BT Cummins 4-cylinder diesel engine.
Lots of Dodge 1500 owners talk about swapping to a diesel engine, but very few actually follow through. Not only has dodgetrucker75 gone through the process, but he has done so very quickly and he has been good enough to provide pictures and videos with his updates over the past two months.
