I am thinking of just getting an Edge CTS progammer and then later on getting efi. You can use the Edge CTS as a dsp5 switch so not really buying something I won't use later. I like the guys at duramaxtuner.com and that is probably where I will go.

I love the LED taillights. Worth every penny I think. One thing is when you plug them in make sure you don't have them backwards because they will blow the fuse and you will think the lights are junk. Just switch the plug around and change the fuse. I blew a fuse on my drivers side when I first plugged them in.

Yeah the CTS is really nice. My buddy had one in his, he didn't like it though. I liked it when i was playin around with it one day. And another friend had it in his 6.0 gasser and he loved it.

I want the CTS mostly to see my balance rates of my injectors. And the backup camera. With the duals it is hard to see anything behind me. What did your friend not like about it?


Not much to update on the truck. I can't get in the shop because my dad has been working on a rotted out trailer frame. I am hoping to get back to it soon.

Not sure really, I guess he just liked the idea of turning the switch instead of messing with the touch screen. Everyone else I've talked to has liked them..

I have seen on some of the videos on youtube where if you don't hit the screen hard enough it doesn't respond. I can see where some would like the dial. I don't see myself needing to change settings so fast that I need the dial. I am not the guy that races everybody at every stoplight.

There is not enough room in the shop to get my truck in so I thought I would work on my tailgate until my dad finishes the trailer frame. Fixing some dents. I have a new flat cap and a locking handle coming for it.

It's primed. I am going to wait and paint it with my grille or bumper.

Locking Handle ... good move ... tailgates are easy to steal. I always lock mine.

It's easy to steal spendy led taillights too. Killing two birds with one stone

I couldn't wait.




I have been thinking that I might try something different on my grille. Since I have a new grill with good chrome, I am going to spray some tinted clear on it to try to give it a black chrome look. I think that would look awesome.

The grille is tinted. A before and after shot. I need to get it out in the sun to see what it looks like, but it looks good in the shop.

Thanks Silver

Tailgate makeover is almost done. Waiting on the new cap and lock.

It is just duplicolor spray on bedliner. I am sure it will not hold up like a professional spray in liner, but I will just touch it up every so often. I used it on my bumper I built for my polairs ranger and it has held up good. Only time will tell how good it will work.

That is my dads 70 camaro SS. It is a true SS not a fake one. It has a 350 with a th350. He has had it 10 years or so. He just doesn't have the time to work on it. It will be hugger orange eventually. The plan is just to restore it to be a weekend driver. I am going to start working on it as soon as I get my camper done. If we both work on it maybe it will get done.

Grill is not on the truck yet. Finally got some room to work in the shop today. Trying to get the body panels lined up. Watching the race now so it will have to wait until Dale Jr wins at Kansas

Another top 10 is good. He ran in the top 5 all day. The sun slowed him down at the end.


Got everything lined up pretty good. Now I have to take it all apart and repaint the bumper and bumper cap. Do some body work on the hood and paint it. And paint the fender. I really want to pull both fenders and strip and undercoat them. I should do the front of the frame while the fenders are off.


Got a pic of the grille but it was getting dark by the time I got it outside. It looks black until you get up close and look at it. The new bowtie came with the grille. Not sure if I am going to darken it or not.
