TRUCK OF THE WEEK: Duramax-Powered ’75 Ford F100 Ranger

In terms of engine swaps, you rarely see the V8 (diesel) engines being used. For Bowcut, this is what happened. He took a 2007 Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck and transformed it into something that we can agree looks pretty cool. This ’75 Ford F-100 Ranger body rests on the ’07 GM frame and it is still powered by the 6.6-liter Duramax.

We’re unsure what made Mr. Bowcut want to tear this truck down and put another body on top, but he did! This truck was clean, too.

Underneath the surface, you’re hearing an LBZ-powered Silverado. On the outside, you’re straight out of the 70s. Like any under-twenty-year-old, Bowcut didn’t leave this truck alone. He’s slowly started to customize it and make it his own and that started with some beefy 35-inch by 12.50-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires.
Inside of his tires of choice is a set of American Force wheels measuring out to 20-inch by 12-inch. When it comes to the engine, Bowcut set it up with an AirDog lift pump system, an Edge Insight in the dash with five different settings, and a few extra goodies including B&W Hitches turnover ball, 50-percent over-stock injectors, and a pair of Airlift helper bags.

It has come a long way, right?

Although this truck isn’t the most powerful one on the road, it is still unique in its own way. What are your thoughts about this? Although we don’t consider this a “swap”, this is still a rare combination. Check back next week to see what we come up with next! For more information, stay tuned right here to Diesel Army.
