Well I'm back in a GM and it feels so good. Was looking for another 3rd gen Dodge, but came to reality and decided to go back to class.

Well I bought it completely stock on October 13, 2015 with a little over 64,000 miles.

My plans:
Remove Steps. Done.
Remove valance. Done.
Remove/sale tool box. Done.
Fully delete EGR and DPF. Done.
5" straight pipe. Done.
3" down pipe. Done.
H&S Mini Maxx. Done.
Cognito UCAs.
295s or 35s (not sure yet.)
Some color matching.
Billet antenna.
WeatherTech Floor Liners.
Clear'd Headlights. Done.
Line X Bed Liner.
Debadging. Done.
Demolding. Done.
Pace Edwards Jackrabbit Tonneau Cover
LED Interior Lights.
Paint Correction.
Cquartz Coating.
Tint. Done.
Colormatch/delete woodgrain pieces in interior.
Tow mirrors.
Clean/Paint under carriage. Done.
Fass Titanium 150 Lift Pump.

Gonna try to keep it clean, simple, and daily it.

Here's some terrible pics.

Some plans may change and most mods probly won't take place for the next 6 months or so. Already have the exhaust, delete kit, and mini Maxx ordered.

May I ask why you're going to run H&S instead of EFI Live? Cognito is pretty good but been reading that the kryptonite ucas and tie rods are a bit better. If coin isn't going to be a problem then try to get the kit with fox shocks. I love mine and already almost put a 1000 miles since last week.

Going with the mini Maxx cause I like the idea of having my gauges and tune on one unit, instead of having to run a separate monitor or guages with efi live. And yeah was thinking of going fox shocks. And never heard of Kryptonite. Gonna look into them.

Fair enough with the H&S route. I had cognito ucas, kryptonite tie rods on my lbz and i loved the combo. I think kyrptonite are a little cheaper than cognito or vice versa. Cognito tie rods are go out after awhile from what I've read.

fact of the day: EFI live > all

H&S is probably the best tuner out there on the market but you probably spent like 1200 bucks on it and for that amount of money you could have had dsp5 tuning done and got a edge CTS2

but its your truck :up:

also i am not jealous of your truck, i am not jealous of your truck, i am not jealous of your truck....fuck.

i thought if i kept telling my self it be true :okay:

What makes Efi live sooooo much better?

I've heard that the H&S fueling is kinda wacky. I would imagine that EFI has better tuning options to what you want while H&S is programmed to an extent and not using the full potential.

Well guess what. The truck is using coolant. Have had it exactly 1 week. But it's certified so I got a 12,000 mile/12 month warranty. Taking it to the dealer in the morning. Hopefully I didn't get a lemon. It's also leaking diesel fuel onto the exhaust somehow.

I'd be pissed. They might have cleaned the area where it leaks fuel before putting it on the lot.

Oh I am beyond pissed. I just hope it gets fixed for good. And I know that deleting it will fix the diesel leak because I read that there is a seal that lets diesel into the exhaust during a regen to help burn off the soot and that it's an easy fix. But the coolant issue is my biggest worry. It's not leaving a puddle on the ground. I really hope it's not a head gasket.

I would have them go through everything. Check your block heater. Saw that a lot of the lml guys have been leaking around there.

thats fucked up. if deleting fixes the problem maybe you can get them to pay for the deletes.

if head-gasket is gone dont even buy it IMO if you do get them to install ARP headstuds free of charge.
