    Sweet ride man, that thing looks awesome. If it were me I would de badge that molding on the doors, but thats just me still looks sick. You going to get a plow for it?

    They sound really good. Looks awesome rollin coal out of both of them too. The kit is the MBRP Cool Duals. 4inch with 5inch stainless tips. The kit actually came with the truck and I wanted to change it but Im the only one in town with them and I like being different. I am ordering a muffler delete pipe for it this week. I heard it sounds really good.

    Thanks man. I have been trying to find time to debadge it and im having no luck. We have had a really busy year so far and I just havent had the time. I took the 4x4 decal and the LS badges off. I havent decided if im plowing with it yet or not. The truck came from Florida and it has never seen salt. I would probably go for a western pro plus 8 footer with the western wings

    What kind of shocks do you run I see yellow color in one picture. Been looking for shocks for my 05 gmc 2500hd and how do you like. They aren't oem are they?

    I have Bilstein heavy duty shocks. They are a good shock. I run 76 psi in my tires so its a ruff ride either way lol. I think when I replace them I will go with the 5100 series

    Nice rig. You got the blue/yellow shocks. Did you put them on? Curious to feel the difference between stock and those. Thinking about getting the 5100 as well. What size tires? That ride has got to be harsh with 76 psi.

    Yes I have the blue and yellow ones. I did not put them on. The previous owner put them on about 5k miles ago when he put the tires on. I think the stock shocks are a little nicer of a ride then the hd Bilsteins. The Bilsteins seem to be very tight and ride a little ruff when empty put a load in the back and it rides pretty good. I have 285 70 16s I have different keys up front to level it out. Yea its pretty harsh ride but then again its a 3/4 ton truck not a Cady lol

    Thanks! Yea you alsways see people taking pictures of there trucks but never any smoke. Thought I would be different.

    Tell me about it. I really looked into the cummins but I hated the interior of the Dodge. Thanks!

    Love that color. I really like the new style badges on the older body style. Looks cool. What brand tires are those, the look good! Like the ride?

    Really nice truck. Let some air out of your tires. You don't need to run 70 psi if you are not haulin anything. You will have a much better ride :nod:
