Yep another black dodge to bounce off trees. Can I be the trail guide? PLEASE ;D ;D ;D ;D
Another question is that will the pullin truck hold together long enough to pull the black truck to oakrridge.
My truck is NOT bouncing. At least hopefully not. This truck still will have to get me to and from work as LEGALLY as possible and I will NOT drive a dented up truck. So yes, Josh and I still have things to figure out as far as that goes.
Before we worry about the 'pullin truck' holding it together, we've gotta get a gooseneck hitch put in it AND buy a trailer. So we will see...
It will be, at a bare minimum, be going to Starr in March.
1 truck already has a pretty beffey clutch 2 driver can drive just about any rig he wants (class a cdl) 3 As for adding up number like a ricer yea ok. How bout we go to a dyno shop in bout middle of febuary ( that will give yall a nuff time to at least think about building a rig like the 3500) and see who has 500+ hp at the rear wheels. I for one know i will for the simple fact that the guy that im getting my numbers from (TRE diesel) Has built many a truck like mine and says 500+ will be no problem once he sets up the injection pump for the new stuff.
4 If you have doubts about me or the truck ill see you on the dyno or the strip which ever one you feel best at dont matter to me.
Oh and for all the naysayers out there just remember I have no problem building what i want. I do a heck of a lot of research before i do something.

there is such a thing as too much power... Yeah it looks cool till a rear tire desintigrates or a NOT FOR HEAVY TOWING clutch explodes....
Research or not... There is a weak link in there someplace... And you are going to find it sooner than later... and odds are it's going to be expensive when it blows... Keep in mind... with gas engines horse power kills. In Diesels torque is the monster. So you will have a 550 HP engine... If my math serves correctly that's about 700 to 800 ft/lbs of torque. There are several components that are not rated for that much rotational force... Your transmission, u joints and rear axle shafts just to name a few.
Sure why not. You use 2wd ill be in 2wd no weight in the bed. On dry pavement. Oh and since everyone knows what i got what u got??? And just fyi my turbo showed up tonight.
No sir, there's no excuses. You either put your big boy pants on and hook up or you don't. Its not my fault you can't get the power to the ground. Tell ya what, you remove the outer dual tires and ill think about using only 2wd. I got nothing special. Just an old powerstroke with about 330 hp. I do have some 50 hp injectors to put in but ill still be well under 400 hp. But I can use every bit of it. Until my transmition breaks.
