"Rocket Ranger"

Not sure how many of you have seen this, but I read about it in Petersen's 4wheel & Off-road, and thought it was cool.

It's about a Powerstroke diesel powered Ranger that's trying to break Gale Banks truck speed record. Pretty damn cool.

i was JUST searching for info about that unsuccessfully, i also saw it in a magazine, though a different one.

ranger + 6.0 powerstroke + intercooled + twin spins = you really cant make it any better than that.

Yeah, when I first saw the article, I was like "Cool a Ford is gonna beat that Dodge in the speed record." Then I realized it was a Ranger and was like Hell Yeah! Haha...

Chevy's not even going to try to do anything with the Durmax. Why try when you know a S-10 cant handel a diesel.
