    Nice purchase. Looks real clean for an almost 11 year old truck.

    You should have seen it when I got it a few months ago! The previous owner doesn't even recognize it now haha!! It looks alot different, everyone that I meet asks where I got the truck and I tell them and they don't beleive me, the previous owner owns a auto repair shop in town alot of people know him and knew the truck... All of the "modifications/upgrades/accessories" was stuff I've done to it..... it was plain jane bone stock when I got 'er... he did have a fuel plate in it but thats it no other mods at all.... The next things I do to it are ladder bars, 4,000 rpm governor spring kit, and coil spacers to level it 2".

    Real bad pic, can't hardly see well, but it had chevy 4x4 decals on the back of the bedsides, had some really gay light blue and pink stripes with goofy designs in 'em, I took all that stuff off the second day I had the truck (first day I had it we had to mow all day lol)

    Here she is a little over a month ago, full pulling at our county fair (I pull with it a little here and there, dirt drags and a couple mud bogs too)... with the old 33x14.50 Super Swamper SSR's.. full pull is 300', I went 314' and was still moving with power and traction when they were flaggin me to stop, I was running out of track!

    Looks good..................................................for a Dodge!

    Pretty sharp looking ride all except for those exhaust tips. IMO it looks kinda silly where you can see the small stock exhaust flair out into that huge tip.

    Eric, get the stacks. Then line that puppy up at one end of main street, drop a little oil down the stacks and punch er' down!!:yow!: You'll be spewing smoke so thick you won't be able to see behind you for a week! Oh, and you may have to take her down to the truck wash for a bath...you may spew a little oil too.:)

    Looks good man, should be a plowing machine.

    The 7.5' SnoWay w/Pro-Wings (9' 2") I know the truck will laugh at it but its all I have for now... and I really like this plow a lot, the only thing i'd like to change is the controller for it is the big joystick one (which I like fine) but I want something smaller I can mount to the shifter...

    It is straight piped, 4" exhaust (wanting 5" but this is it for now)...
    It does blow a ton of smoke... I already get in trouble occasionally for fogging for 'skeeters on our main drag.... I won't race anymore, got in too much trouble for that..... and I won't roast 'em anymore, can't afford to replace these tires that often... and smoke is fuel is lotsa money so I been layin off of that for a while too, but smoke is the only thing i can do without legally getting in trouble LOL.... 2 weeks ago I was pulled over 3 times in 4 days.... youch..... i've been pulled over at least a dozen times and never gotten a ticket (knock on wood) and only 3 written warnings (one of which was stupid and shouldn't have been issued, it was disregarding traffic control device, was going to mow a yard in a construction zone with a sign that said local traffic only, no thru traffic, well I had to to to teh middle of the construction zone the cop was a dick it didn't work out..)... yea i'm lucky no tickets so far!!!

    And boys ya oughta see 'er with the new rims!!! holy schmokes!!!! she's PURRRRTTYYY!!!!!!!! Oowweeee!!!!!!!!
    Looks alot nicer than I woulda imagined. I ordered the leveling kit / coil spacers, and the spacers and the nerf step bars are going on Saturday. I will prolly wait to get pictures then cuz the truck is already filthy again so pics will have to wait... plus its going to look alot better leveled and with steps.
