2013 Ram 3500 4x4 Baja Chase Truck Build
I will document here the transformation of my 2013 4x4 Dually into a fully capable chase truck that will serve as my daily driver (for now) and back country support for my Class 8 Baja race truck.
I've always wanted to be involved in Baja racing since I was a kid and over tha past year have finally been able to follow that dream. I'll be crossing off the top of my bucket list in April 2017 when we go down to Mexico to compete in the 50th Anniversary of the NORRA Mexican 1000!
On to the build!
Here is what I started with:
2013 Ram 3500 DRW 4x4
6.7 Cummins (Stock)
Aisin 6spd Auto
ST trim package
30,000 miles on the ticker when I bought it.
And here is what it looked like the first time I put it to use hauling our race truck out for a shake down.
Shortly after purchase I re-tinted the front windows and added a brow (now causing me heartache and grief trying to get it inspected
