2nd Gen

Most Well Known 2nd Gens

2nd gen game strong

Who doesn’t love a good ole 2nd gen Dodge Cummins? I know I do. Every time I turn my head, there’s sick build hitting the streets. I have to tell you, these build’s are fascinating and it cant get much better then this. The motivation, and inspiration these guys have to put into these builds have got to be the most outstanding thing I’ve ever seen in the truck industry.

What is a 2nd gen?

If you’re not familiar with exactly what year a 2nd gen is, then let me sum it all up in a nutshell for you. The Ram line was redesigned for the 1994 model year. Development on a second generation began in 1986, ending in late 1992. The redesigned 1994 Ram was a sales success, with sales rocketing from 95,542 units in 1993 to 232,092 in 1994, 410,000 in 1995, and 411,000 by 1996. That year, it was prominently featured as the hero vehicle in the film Twister. Sales of this generation peaked at just over 400,000 in 1999.

Who’s driving it?

Over the past few years, there has been numerous popular builds with the 2nd gens. These builds have been and still are trending topics across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, & Snapchat. I’ll be scrolling my news feed, and boom! There’s a badass second gen build right there. In fact, it was Christopher Dogget’s build. When I first took notice, I knew this guy was about to blow up. Right then and there, I posted him to our Facebook page back in May of 2017. His video gained over 225k views. Not to mention, we’ve posted other videos of his that went stupid crazy on social media with over 1million views.

However, that’s not even the tip of the iceberg with all the builds that so many are doing. Here’s Zack Turchany with his Monster 24v (ProTip: That’s his Instagram name) and it’s custom paint job. The truck is immaculate, inside and out. He has a build list so long, he could literally write a book. Okay, maybe a little far fetched there, however the build list is still crazy long.
