If there is one thing for sure, we love the sound of a diesel engine. It doesn’t matter what it is in or what kind of engine it is, we just enjoy it. Unfortunately, manufacturers didn’t equip some of the vehicles with the diesel engine we wish they would’ve or the diesel doesn’t come in the configuration we wish. But, thanks to guys like Ryan Scott, he’s created his own and it is a head-turner.
A single cab short box pickup truck passing you on the road seems like your normal half-ton Ram. Nothing too special but this Ram is quite different. When this little shorty goes by, you’re hearing the rumble of a 6.7-Liter Cummins engine, a rattly triple-disc clutch for Valair Clutch, and a glossy finish from the PXR Black paint. Scott’s creation is beautiful but it’s a runner, too.
Under the hood of this Ram is a few goodies that put plenty of power to the ground. Between the stock over S475 compound kit and the custom tuning via CTT, the truck coined “Lucipher” is making 618-horsepower and 1,132-ft/lbs of torque according to the latest dyno session. As if 618-horsepower wasn’t enough, Scott tried his luck with a healthy dose of N20 and pushed his numbers to 773-horsepower and 1,464-ft/lbs.
Scott’s purpose for this build wasn’t just to make good power but it was also to look unique. Well, after some serious fab work, this truck was converted into the short bed version you see here and it really makes me wish they would offer a single cab short box diesel pickup truck in every brand. On the interior and exterior, Lucipher showcases many extra add-ons.
Scott’s passion for diesel trucks has translated into a career as well. Owner and operator of Northern Edge Diesel in New York, Scott wanted to make something that showcased the professionalism and skillset he and his shop had to offer and Lucipher was born.
