New Diesel Owner....2006 Ram

Hey everyone,

I just purchased my first diesel truck, 2006 Ram 2500 Mega Cab, and I'm looking to rebuild it to be a daily driver.

It's rough around the edges, but it has potential. I'm hoping to get some knowledge from everyone here as I work to rebuild it. Here are a few pictures.

Cheers,

Brad

I hope you have a good heated shop or garage and lots of $$$$$$
The one great thing about dodge trucks is they are mechanically old school so if you have mechanical skills that's a plus.
If you are going through it and you do have lots of $$$$ replace sealed front bearing with free spin locking hubs.
Install dual oil filters and fuel filters.
Install steering brace and check the tie rods for play.
Replace ball joints.
If you have lots and lots of $ install a Edge insight and EGT sensor.
Good luck and post pics when you are done.

Yes a new truck runs almost $100,000
I plan to drive my truck until they either outlaw it or I die.
