I don't have the money for that. When I move back to Florida it'll be a project truck.
I've always liked the sleeper build. This isn't the best comparison, but it was a brilliant move by Dodge to put a race track engine (Hellcat) in a stock Challenger. Remove the badging, and the Hellcat Challenger is a total sleeper, yet it beats the high performance, non-sleeper Corvette!

In my opinion, going overboard is the mistake that many people make when building a Cummins. After beefing up the engine and transmission, they also start adding a lift kit, big tires, etc. That's when they lose a lot of performance, lose the sleeper look, and lose all the great characteristics of a daily driver.

I've been using Amsoil since the late 1990s. This is my first time to use non-Amsoil in a few decades.

As for daily prices, Walmart and Costco have some good prices on oil. Rotella had a crazy rebate not too long ago that was unbelievable.

We did some trailer shopping today. I was planning to order one, but this trailer, I think, met all the criteria. Trailer shopping is never easy. There's no such thing as the perfect trailer.

The huge flaw is that it's a bumper pull, but hopefully it at least has 5,200-lb. axles.

Either way, stop by Jackssons before you buy.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

'14 1500 V6, '17 3500 C&C, plus a '19 3500 6.4 in the household.
