The engine is the factory 5.9L I-6 turbodiesel. However, it was modified by an ATS chromed intake manifold, exhaust system, torque converter, and valvebody. Bully Dog's Triple Dog programmer and Torque Dog pump up more power. The Advanced Flow Engineering (aFe) cold-air intake keeps the engine breathing strong. The result? About 505 hp and 935 lb-ft! And all the while, A-pillar gauges keep the driver informed of the insanity going on underneath the hood.
Wow, so the truck looks cool from the outside, lies lower, and goes faster. But, what about the massive amount of fabrication inside of the cab? Kingpin built the interior to reflect the overall style of the exterior, much like a funhouse mirror. Take a look at the dash. It was gutted and modified to make room for the spiky center piece and a new center console that resembles a liquid-black thundercloud. The HVAC ducts were moved, and the controls were relocated to the ceiling-more on where later. The door and lock controls and Kicker KQ5 EQ/preamp were put into the center console, and a 10.4-inch monitor and Kicker SXRC amplifier controller were installed into the center of the dash. And the whole thing was painted glossy black. Kingpin's audio team packed half of all the A/V equipment into the truck's four door panels. This includes a Kicker SX400.2 amplifier, a set of Kicker RS 6-1/2-inch component speakers, and 10.4-inch monitor into each door. Then, the painter prepped the door panels and painted them with a graphic that matches the body.
The bucket seats in the rear of the cab are what remain of the factory bench, thanks to some custom work using the original brackets. The seats were lined in black suede with alligator skin inserts, much like their counterparts in the front. But really, the seats aren't what grab your attention: it's the row of 'woofers and amps that run along the roof and between the two seats, all menacing overhead like a sonic anaconda. Three Kicker 12-inch CompVR subwoofers, a Kicker XS400.2 amp, and the A/C controls were installed into a joined three-section, black-painted, fiberglass, foam, purple fleece, and MDF console that runs from the back of the center console to above the front row of seats. Meanwhile, three Kinetic Cap Killers and Optima batteries keep the electrical supply primed and ready.
So, that was it for the truck, but the story doesn't end there, as the truncated, truck-ish companion to our pickup is shown in the sidebar. That would be the golf cart that we nick-named Mini Me.
