i would think the trac get way better mileage than the Hemi. Plus a dodge is only good with a cummins and even then the engine is better than the turd wrapped around it.

Right on Scottie! I'm glad you still have it! I thought something was fishy too, I knew you talked about a 4x4 swap.

I love the trac man, looks good. Can't wait to see finished pictures.
