If you could have any body with any engine, any transmission, and any axle, what would it be? Mine would probably be an LMM Sierra 2500 with an ORU front straight-axle conversion & coils.

What do you want? A Cummins-powered Super Duty? A Dodge with a Cummins and Allison? We want to hear!

I would take a LBZ Chevy or GMC with a better front axle.With a 6.7L Cummins engine or the 6.6L Duramax engine that came with it all coupled to an Allison 6speed auto with tapshift.

I would do the same thing to a landcruizer as my ride but make it for strickly off roading with my own fabricated coil spring suspension,full roll cage,front and rear axle welded planitary gears in stock differintials.I take my ride off roading all the time but I dont know the limmits because its my daily driver and I hold back from some major climbs and rocks.

Dodge never came out with a diesel powered SUV. SO to speak, I want a RAMCHARGER with a new 5.9l Commonrail. Stock would be fine, they need to come out with one.

I would have a few.... First would be 2 12v Cummins twin turbo trucks one for the street and one for the track. Both trucks would have twins hot pumps and then a NV5600 trans with rebuilt internals and stronger clutches. I'm half way there i have the two motors, i just need the bodies. Next i would build up a 2007 Dodge Ram mega Cab dually diesel i would put 22.5" Alcoas on it big Fab Fours bumpers and then i would fill the engine bay with twin turbos twin cp3s and to finish it all off i would put 8 inch miter cut stacks in the bed. Just dreamin tho.
