Hey guyz

I'm back. Some know me. Some don't.

I use to be the forum **** starter I also use to have a truck I miss everyday. POS was so damn fun....


Since then I've completed the 6.7 cummins swap.

Who knows how long I'll be around but in the mean time I'll be snooping and trying to make some moolah.


Edit: whoa, curse words aren't bleeped? Or am
I about to get in trouble?

Welcome back man. I was only around for a bit before you disappeared.
Don't worry man, we won't bust you for the occasional swear.

I can get some when I get to a computer.

It's an 07, egr/DPF gone, straight piped. H&S tuner, afe intake.

Awaiting a dual disc Valair organic clutch... The stock one doesn't care much for the 120/175hp tunes hehe. It holds just enough to make your weener tingle then let's go when the turbo comes full swing.

The exhaust brake sounds wicked under a load.

Nice man my brother is actually running a valair DD on his 07 5.9. He's got all the basic mods and with the addition of a Airdog 150 and a smarty on TNT-R on sw9 his truck picks it up and lays it down. Those heavy cummins will get going in a hurry with the right mods and of course some dollar signs.

h&s tuner was $650
egr delete was around $100

Just saw a post of yours in another thread and had to look at the date to see if it was current. I was wondering what happened to you a few months back.

Anyway, glad to see you're still around. Diesel + 6speed = win

I got rid of the ranger.. 2 years ago? I can't remember. That's where I went lol

And yes, all sorts of win! I have to shift so damn often, somedays i wish i had an auto, But I need a $1200 clutch and I'll be good until I start really thrashing it. 5-6gr for an auto. No thanks.

And here's our work trailer I tow from time to time. On a scale from 1 to obnoxious... It ranks in at a healthy spectacular straight with 8,000+ lbs behind it.
