Jaeger build thread
Alright I figured it was about time I did one of these for this truck. The story goes that my love of diesels started with my 93 dodge w250 known as The Roo Hunter. I got it bone stock at 16, and loved every minute of it. Over many months the truck gained much horsepower, and got more fun
Then tragedy struck August 10th, 2013 after I killed the stock diaphragm lift pump, and was left without the truck for a week, so I dropped by the dodge dealership, and picked this one up. I decided to call it jaeger because of the movie pacific rim that I'd seen on the weekend
Turned out I actually knew the previous owner, and the only thing that had gone wrong in 74,000 kilometres was one of the licence plate lights had burned out. After a month I decided to order exhaust, but was told I had to save money for school, so no tuner at that point.
Cosmetics ended up being things I was allowed to do, so I did this
Then some LED taillights and some other LEDs made their way onto the truck. Then I managed to sneak a 2 inch lift onto it
Then the fun began, as I got permission to order the tuner to go along with the exhaust I'd ordered 5 months prior, so I got in contact with davemathews and got a mini maxx sent to me with custom tunes
and then I was off to my 1st year heavy duty school, so I only bought a light bar
oh and an exhaust tip.
