    Flashed no brake checked yes. First I went ahead and installed HID xeon lights. If I wasn't annoying before this upgrade did not help. Usually its the car in front the gets angry. Either they give a tap of their brakes or they slow down way under the speed limit. But this was back when I was station in San Diego. I had a guy in a civic slow down to 20mph. Usually I just flash the high beams to show them they were not on.
    I down shut them off if I'm behind someone at a light. It's kind of funny what you can see inside other peoples cars..:eek:

    Yeah, post 5100 install we went to Dairy Queen for some early Summer Blizzards. Holy crap, not only could I see into the car in front of me, my headlights were casting hard shadows of their heads in their car interior.

    Adding "re-aim headlights" to my To Do list... I'm thinking we should also add this into the "5100 install" DIY post :rolleyes:

    Except that Dodge is the only one who offers a Cummins diesel so I love it by association.

    As much as I love my 4.0L, if I could I would in a heart beat.

    True, its sad though since they could put it in a much higher quality ford and have the almost perfect full size.

    And tear the Transmission out of a GMC Sierra (Allison Tranny) with the Tundra body styling.


    It's my dream truck. That and the 4x4 options of a PowerWagon while I'm making shit up.

    I just don't think that massive 5.9 would even fit in our trucks engine bay. And if it did, the front would sag so bad as to be embarrassing.

    Yep, resurrected just to see what people would do with it. Gotta love the "related threads" list at the bottom of each page, you find some ancient stuff down there.
