Lavon Miller and the crew at Firepunk Diesel have created what many people believe to be the toughest and most capable all-around diesel pickup truck in the history of the genre in the Enforcer. This is the truck that dominated the Ultimate Call Out Challenge a few months ago, and one that has been the result of near endless testing, trying, and development by Miller and his band of diesel powered henchmen. Miller is a huge name in the diesel performance world having won the Diesel Power Challenge twice, the inaugural Ultimate Call Out Challenge, and at this writing kicking major tail in the Pro Street Truck Outlaw Diesel Series to boot. That’s what it means something when he talks about the components that make his truck tick.
As it turns out, Clevite bearings are among the parts that take incredible abuse and keep on ticking. Miller knows that great bearings are the true foundation of an engine and Clevite H-Series bearings are what make this engines live under the extreme pounding that they get from all that hardcore compression ignition. This is great!
Lavon Miller of Firepunk Diesel Exclusively Uses Clevite® Engine Bearings in The Enforcer
Farmington Hills, MI… August 25, 2016 – Lavon Miller, two time Diesel Challenge Winner, Ultimate Challenge Winner, and points leader in the 2016 Pro Street Truck Outlaw Diesel Super Series would never consider using any other engine bearing than Clevite when preparing his truck’s engine, The Enforcer, for the 2016 Ultimate Callout Challenge.
Lavon’s engine builder, Drew Pumphrey at D & J Precision Machine says, “We have always used Clevite H-Series engine bearings for Lavon’s engine because they are the best bearings available to handle all the high horsepower and torque needed for him to compete in such demanding conditions. They hold up time after time.”
The Ultimate Callout Challenge, a three day event held annually each summer in Salt Lake City, Utah assembles the country’s most powerful and best-built diesel trucks together in one place to measure their performance in three specific categories: highest combined horsepower and torque, quickest quarter-miles, and best performance in a sled pull environment. Miller took home the quickest elapsed time award with an outstanding 8.50 in the quarter- mile, and finished second in both the dyno competition and sled pulling. There were 32 competitors overall, and $32,000 in payouts up for grabs.
