Here are some pics of my retired dodge 2500. It has quite a few powerstroke-killing modifications including twin turbos, cam, completely built engine(by me). Highest dyno #s were 710hp- 1416tq.

thats pretty badass looking. when you say retired, do you mean as your daily driver, or as in, you blew it up lol?

I just sold this 2002 Harley Truck to go into the lawn business. Everyone thinks I'm crazy but I'm just as happy with my '96 F150 although that Harley truck was soooooooo fast.

The first pic looks like the truck is either lifted or it's a stock 4x4 with oversized tires.

True?

Looks like a mean machine, I can only imagine what it sounds like.

I just drive it around town on the weekends. I have raced it, but you really need an auto to get a quick time. And no I could never sell it. I have probably spent 50k on upgrades.

That is a nice truck. But i liked it better before without the hood stack. :cool2:

The hood stack is the coolest thing I have ever done to a truck. People take pictures, stare, etc. People around town started to copy the stacks, so I had to one up them. Today a guy stopped by my house to check it out and two people at the fuel station just stopped and stared for like 5 minutes.

No... the NV4500 is holding up well. I am on my third dual disk clutch though.

I guess it grows on you, the more i see it the more i like it.

i agree the hoodstack is awesome. i havent seen that done to a truck around here. a few guys have stacks, but i think it would be cool as hell to pull up at a light with a big stack out the hood. im not a big fan of dodge, but ever since i saw your pics i definately love the look of your truck. let me know if your gonna sell. the turbos must whine really loud :D

Thanks for the compliments! I could never sell it, I have invested so many busted knuckles, time, and money it is almost a part of the family.

haha yea easy horsepower and LOTS of smoke :blob3: . Once you get a trans or a good clutch that will hold it. Have you ever ran your truck at a track? What did you run if you did?

The first truck was my daily driver/work truck untill I came across the red one. Diesel 4x4 6spd is the only way to go.

Nice trucks. For me, diesel might as well be running through my veins. Diesel really is the way to go in this business.

diesles are in my opinion much better engines, however, they do have their drawbacks when it gets really cold...
