Project Big Red- Take Two

Well here we go again! That's right, Aden's Big Red Fummins is getting a facelift and introduced to the 21st century! Many of you may know Aden's truck which was built clear back in 2005. Sporting the top of the line performance parts (at the time) and a fully built 4R100, it was the baddest truck on the road. And Aden, being a pioneer of the Cummins Conversion industry, wouldn't take no for an answer when everyone told him a CR would never run in anything other than a Dodge truck. Since 2005, this truck has been faithful and reliable for over 150k miles.





We are going to revamp the whole truck head to toe. It is going to get a freshened up and beefed up motor, with lots of goodies including twins, and the power will now make it's way to the ground through a bomb proof Allison 5 speed. We are shooting for another 700-800 Horse truck. Keep in mind that we drive our trucks on a daily basis and expect them to start in -30* weather without being plugged in, expect them to hook up to everything from 4 place sled trailers to loaded down goosenecks, and travel from sea to shining sea. We don't just build big power trucks, we build reliable big power trucks.

We will also be doing a full interior update, not sure what all will be in store here as we are still playing with some different ideas, but no doubt it will be sick!

Stay tuned and follow us on this build, it should be good!

If you need a place to dump the old motor and trans, I will take all that old stuff off your hands.

Dang Steel you guys do some awsome work. Can't wait to see this one.

Yeah I thought that might be were you got your 4r100.

Oh I wish I could get a CR and a tranny from you guys but I need to keep this build as cheap as possible, that is why I am going with a 12v you got a good 12v laying around? I know it will be loud as all get out but at least it will make noise.
sorry bout that

I can build you a CR motor cheaper than I can build you a 12v lol I don't really want to let go of the 12v, they are getting really hard to find, but I have a handful of CR's here that I will be going through and freshening up, then they will be for sale! Are you going to go with a manual trans?

I need to keep it auto trans the wife will not drive a standard. She might need the truck from time to time. It will not be a daily driver, we live on a ranch and use it now and then. You can only get so much feed in the back of a cobalt.

Please tell me that you aren't going to run the 5R110.

No I gave up with the 5r110. I was thinking of getting a 4r100 I can score one of those fairly cheap. Was also thinking of just using a dodge tranny. I know it will take some drive shaft modifications but that should be cheaper than an adaptor plate.
