Dualie trucks have been all the rage around here recently with Chad having scored a vintage 1980s big block crew cab version for himself and both McTaggart and I scouring the internet for other cool examples for sale. All of this six wheeled fun got me thinking about a truck I did a feature on for Diesel Power Magazine recently. This is a 2003 Chevrolet dually with a 6.6L Duramax, a single cab, 600hp, and a six speed stick! Yeah, I immediately fell in love with this truck and the fact that it (to me anyway) is done “just enough”. It is not some freaky dyno queen or some monster that is not able to be driven without smoking out the neighborhood and spending a cab of ether to get it started, it is a row your own hot rod for the streets.
While I think most people favor the crew cab dually look for its better riding long wheelbase and increased cab area, I have always loved single cab dually trucks. I think they look bad ass and few of them have ever struck me in the feels as had as this one did. Oh, and if you are in the world of diesel performance you’ll recognize the owners’ name for sure!
