I thought it's probably about time to do a build thread on our 08 Ram 2500 land speed effort.I'll post up what we've done so far along with any pictures I have.If ya have any questions about the build let me know.
Just over a year ago I decided to build a diesel land speed racing vehicle,aiming to go fast and hopefully get a record in the class maybe even go 200mph.
First job was to find a good donor vehicle after searching around we found the 2008 Ram 2500 at a salvage auction,with a wee bit of damage caused by the truck hitting a sizeable elk.
As soon as the truck was delivered from Arizona to Colorado ,I removed all of the damaged sheetmetal radiator intercooler and condensor.
I hunted down most of the parts to fix the truck on craigslist and local ads,finally getting the truck back in one piece except for the bed.
A used bed was found,I then sent all the miss matched parts to my buddies bodyshop for a lick of white paint,here's the truck after getting the bed,bumper and fender painted.
