    Welcome to Gear Crushers!

    By wildweaselmi

    So what the heck is Gear Crushers all about?  In short, we have so many passions that we couldn't pick just one.  We love all of it!  Too many websites and clubs are focused on one passion but we like everything.  We believe we can love more than just one passion.   How many times have you gone to a website and invested time in adding and contributing to the community to have them change or just call it quits.  Or you belong to a website that never gets updated.. yawn.  We are tired of bein

    Gear Crushers Street Scene

    By wildweaselmi

    What is the street scene?  It's focusing on muscle cars, low riders, Dairy Queeners (offroad looking trucks that don't drive even on dirt roads), drag racing, circle tracks and more.  You probably get the gist.  The street community is all about beauty on the asphalt. Personally I've always been a huge muscle car fan.  Went through my phases of owning several classic muscle cars.  Here you can share your projects or builds.  Talk in the garage and maybe help someone out if they have questio

    Gear Crushers ATV-UTV Community

    By wildweaselmi

    So many pro's to hit trails with a ATV or UTV or SxS versus your vehicle.  Why?  One of the biggest reasons is many people drive the vehicle they are off-roading and when that breaks you have no way home and costs start piling up.  With a ATV or UTV or SxS you trailer it to your destination, beat it up and/or do whatever and even if it happens to break, you can get it back to the trailer and you still have a ride home. I've owned many of the top brands in ATV, UTV and SxS and I have my pers

    Gear Crushers Offroad Community

    By wildweaselmi

    At some moment in your life you were introduced to the world of offroad and if you were like me, you fell in love with it.  The challenges, the obstacles and tackling a course that looks impossible to the untrained eye.  Something so peaceful when exploring areas not many could get to or want to.

Cummins Diesel Engines.. Any good?

Clessie Cummins worked as a chauffeur and mechanic for William Irwin, a banker in Columbus, Indiana. Although he had no formal education beyond the eighth grade, Cummins had a keen knack for the mechanical, which was noticed by Irwin. Legend has it that when Cummins was only 11 years old, he built his own steam engine from molten cast iron he poured into wooden blocks that served as molds. His homebuilt steam engine was used to pump water for his father's farm. Cummins was convinced diesels

Gear Crushers RV Community

Someone asked, why don't you have RV's on your site.  They have gears, fuel, oil and can be a pain in the ass to manage.  I didn't have a good response so I created a section just for RV's which translates to Recreational Vehicle.  Some people love there RV's and truthfully they all use similar components from other vehicles found on this website so they do belong. For example, motor home have either the Ford V-10 or the Chevy 6.2L or the most popular option, the Chrysler Cummins Diesel whi

1st gen Dodge W250 W350 Cummins Truck

I absolutely love these 1st generation Dodge W250 / W350 Trucks with the Cummins engine and the heavy duty Manual Transmission (getrags).  What years does the 1st Generation Dodge Trucks cover?  First Gen covers from 1981 to 1993 with the last few years (89-93) having an option for diesel.  Anywhere hear of Cummins? Yea that diesel. The diesel found in most heavy duty equipment, tractors, RV's. 1st gen Notes Easier to work on but has limited hp due too pump Has a small Bosch
