Well i finally blew the rear end out of my Silverado this past February. She was 17 years old and had served me quite well. Being without a truck these past few months has been quite the experience. And we have the new toy hauler to go camping with, and no way to haul it.
Unknown to me, my wife, Brenda , has since the beginning of this year, secretly saving up money any way she could...a buck here, $10 there. I truely had no idea.

My wife, that person who i love so much in this world, for fathers day gave me an 04 dodge ram 2500 with the 5.9 cummins diesel.

GUYS.....DID YOU HEAR ME?? MY WIFE BOUGHT ME A PICK UP FOR FATHERS DAY!!!

I can not even attempt to express the love and admiration i have for this woman. For months on end, she sacrificed so that i could have a father's day i will not soon forget.

This will be my first diesel pick up. I've been driving over the road for 24 years now with over 2.5 million miles under my belt, so I'm not new to diesels, just ones in pick ups. She bought this one from a friend of ours, and i know he kept up on the maintenance. It has 310k on the clock, and hes done the transfer case, wheel bearings, new exhaust, shocks, brakes...ect. The only thing not touched isthe motor.
My plans are to open up the air filter and a possible tuner. Also i want to put in a Fass system as i have one on my big truck. I dont wanna go too nuts, just a little boost in hp and tq to haul my 8k toy hauler with
Any recommendations on a tuner? Looking for something i wouldnt have to do too much work to the tranny with

Welcome to the forums @Sbaumann14,

We are happy to have you on the site, and want to say congrats on your new truck.

That is awesome your wife was able to do that for you on Fathers Day, I would say she is a real MVP on this one.

Hope you find the site useful when looking for parts, there is a ton of information on the site, so don't be afraid to jump into discussions.
