History
Native Montana truck with no rust. I’ve put more in to it since I got it than what I paid for it.
1998 Dodge Ram 12v
Swapped in nv5600, DHD241 and axles from an 02 and converted to larger 3rd gen brakes. Mishimoto radiator.
Extensive work on steering. It really does steer as good as my 4th gen
Fuel turned up as high as I can with hx35 and stock 215 injectors.
4K gsk


Future upgrades will be he351cw and 5x12 injectors. onboard air from converted AC compressor

I am recreating this truck to brake, steer and haul every bit at least as good as any new truck. Except all mechanically injected with no emissions or dpf and debt free.

Modifications

Drivetrain
Late 2nd gen axles with 3rd gen brakes
Nv5600 and 241DHD

Did you convert this truck from an auto trans to manual? I am planning on putting a nv5600 in my 1998 12 valve 3500, come spring.
