2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

I grew up around hot rods, muscle cars, and back woods wheeling, so when I first started thinking about horsepower, torque, speed, acceleration and, of course, burnouts, a one-ton diesel truck was the last vehicle on my mind. My first car was a 1963 Ford Fairlane 2 door post. I spent every pay check on it for a year and eventually raced it at the local track. That car worked great until winter came—it wasn’t much of a snow basher, if you know what I mean. But I always loved that car and still own it to this day.

My first experience with a diesel truck was in a 6.0L with a Diablo Sport Tuner and a 4” exhaust. Yeah, I know, nothing special, but you have to understand I was in my teens and I had to start somewhere. After that, I was hooked on the torque of a diesel. I grew to love diesel engines so much that I decided I wanted to work on them for a living. So straight out of high school I enrolled in the diesel and chassis fabrication programs at Wyotech in Laramie. I loved it, and it showed. For the first time in my educational career I earned straight A’s. I came back to Spokane and got a job at a local Dodge dealership as a mechanic. It was a pretty decent job for a while, especially when the service writer would give me a Cummins to work on, but every time a PT Cruiser, Dodge Caravan, or Chrysler Pacifica (the worst vehicle of all time) came in, I just wanted to push them right of the lift. That job produced enough money for me to purchase an atlantic blue 2001 Dodge 2500 Sport extended cab short box with a 5-speed. I started slowly modifying it with the help of Josh, the dealership’s accessory manager. Eventually, Josh moved to DPP and became the On-Site Marketing Manager. Not long after that, I was offered a chance to follow him. How could I refuse an opportunity to do what I love every day?

I have been with DPP since 2010 and still love every minute of it. I have watched us grow to what I believe is the best company out there for all your performance needs. It’s not just me, though. Everyone here loves this stuff!
