Alright where to start....
Here's the day I bought it. April 22nd 2013.
It had aftermarket headlights (Look cool but suck)
Valair 13" single disc clutch
Reman SO vp44
Piece of junk lift pump zip tied to the frame rail
A fuel pressure regulator mounted to the battery box
A single gauge that showed boost and egts, which was hardwired on
A fuel pressure gauge mounted by your left knee with a hard line running to it. The gauge was broke and never went below 15lbs with the truck off.
The only performance mod was a diablo sport power puck.
It came with the "camper package" overload springs and tie downs for the camper
This thing was unmolested and in great shape when I bought it.



Shortly after I got it I bought a smarty (I know that was dumb before other things)

The next week I bought a fass 95 a 3 pillar gauge pod, and 3 gauges (Boost, Pyro, fuel pressure)


I then dressed it up a bit with a new oem grill and center emblem, a set of chrome tow mirrors (2009 style) with blinkers in them, and a 5 inch exhaust tip.


Later that summer I started getting the power bug... That meant an edge comp! My clutch lasted 1 hard pull in 5th gear, then started slipping BAD.
I was pretty pissed because it supposedly had a big enough clutch to hold the power. When I got the trans and clutch out I found the clutch disc was down to the rivets and had grooved both the pressure plate and the flywheel. I guess the PO rode the clutch a bunch.
I put a south bend it 500 hp single disc in and it has held well since.

Well when September came the VP bit the dust. I expected it to because of the crap lift pump when I got it, so no big surprise there.
(Mind you all of this was before finding cumminsforum) I bought an "upgraded" pump from Blue chip thinking that it was expensive so it must be the best (Stupid me). That pump lasted about 4 miles and 15 minutes of run time. It tripped the p0216 code and would not go away no matter how many times I cleared it. Called blue chip and they warrantied it. The next pump lasted about two weeks before I had trouble with it starting and blowing white smoke just cruising down the road. Blue chip claimed it was my truck causing them to go bad. I got pissed and demanded my money back and a core back from him. He deducted the shipping costs of both pumps from my refund (Nice guy right?) I went and bought an Industrial Injection SO and it has been trouble free since!


Early in the spring I started having issues with my tank pressurizing. When I would start it, it would blow white smoke horrible until it warmed up.

Thanks to the help of this forum I found out the copper washer seals on the injectors were leaking and pressurizing the whole system. A set of DAP 95hp injectors fixed that.

The extra power was great, but I needed more air to cool it. I retrofitted the he351cw off of my brother's 05 onto it. I put a batmowheel on it as well. I have a writeup on it as well
http://forum.mopar1973man.com/index....-a-second-gen/





Very shortly after that I decided to go bigger.
Phatshaft 62/65/12


Next I was getting some really bad wheel hop whenever it was wet or cold, so I built a set of traction bars. I need to do a writeup on these sometime.



Alright before winter I decided to change the look a little bit and got her a new set of shoes!
These were off of a 2012 Laramie edition truck. Stock tire size 265/75/17


Here this winter I found a NEW TST pm3 with the R45 remote for way less than new. I had heard good things about it so I sold my comp and scooped it up. I was really happy with how well it fuels and how I was able to use the smarty timing.


Then it was off to paint thanks to dodge's lovely clear coat. While it was getting painted I got the seats reupholstered and some new seat covers.

I'm not sure if anyone has ever driven one of these trucks with the interior stripped and no bed, but they are FAST!



.

Here's the results after paint




Right after paint I put in some bigger injectors 125 SAC's
Somewhere in there I also got a set of 10" kicker subwoofers and a rockford fosgate amp.

It ran really well! It got a little warm up at high altitudes, but nothing the right foot couldn't control. With the comp set to kill it would pull 45lbs of boost too

Off-Road the original grill had a broken piece on the right side that was held on with aluminum tape (PO's work)

Rip the crappy falling down insulation off the firewall.... The noise difference is negligable, but the improvement in looks was huge!

Yeah I'll probably rip it out when I have the chance. I hate it flopping under there.
Thanks for the compliments guys! She's had a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and money thrown into her.

Samurai, how different was the ride with thuren coils and shocks?? This thing rides like a tank. I do have 1" spacers in the front though.
