When Diesel Power magazine was contacted by Craftsman Tools to help build the ultimate bolt-on Ford diesel pickup, we jumped at the chance. Hot Rod and Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazines were also in on the challenge, each with their own modified versions of the Ford trucks. Our goal with this 6.4L-powered '10 Ford F-250 was to be able to keep up with Hot Rod's truck in a drag race, while performing just as well as 4-Wheel & Off-Road's on the trail. While the other two trucks would be focused on doing just a couple of tasks, ours could do it all, and do it well—which is what owning a new diesel truck is all about!
