The latest Summit Racing project is a Ram 2500 Heavy Duty pickup truck equipped with a Cummins 6.7L diesel engine.

But unlike a lot of project builds, the Summit Racing team didn’t start with a showroom-fresh vehicle here. Nope, this 2018 Ram 2500 is already a long haul, high mileage workhorse, with plenty of snow, rain, and dirt under its tires.

So the goal of this series is to show you how a few upgrades, some vital maintenance, and a little bit of elbow grease on a road-weary rig can be a smart alternative to buying an all new truck—and much easier on the wallet too.

So you can think of this video as a handy guide to selecting a good tow hitch for your truck or SUV, whether you’ve got a car hauler, boat, camper, or work trailer. Check it out below and stay tuned for more video installments in the 2018 Ram 2500 Cummins Ram Revamp series.
