Default Out with the old, in with the new

So a few people have noticed im stripping my truck of all mods basically and here is why...



In July im moving back to Michigan to take over the family farm(s). Recently my great uncle passed away, which leaves 2 farms in the family with no one to take care of them. Convienently they are right around the corner from eachother and I have volunteered/been elected to take care of the cows on my uncles farm and crops on my grandfathers farm (they are both now deceased). Being that this is the case i just dont think a 1500 will cut towing a livestock trailer therefore I traded my dad for his '07 Hemi bighorn to trade in a a brand new custom ordered 2013 3500!!


So while SnowWhite the second has been a great truck, shes being replaced with what will be code named Abominable Snowman! I got off the phone with the dealer we order/buy our trucks from in Michigan and by the end of next week the order will be in.

Short run down

2013 3500 Bright white Mega cab dually with 4.10 gears
6.7 cummins with the new Aisin 6 speed tranny
Bucket seats
Moon roof
Keyless go
and a few other bells and whistles.





I wont take delivery till mid july because I wont be in MI until then, but they are going to let it sit and not be driven in the back lot until I can get there to pick it up. I cant freaking wait!


Hopefully H&S or one of the other tuner companies makes a good tuner for the 2013s soon. Planned mods are

Powdercoated bumpers and painted grill (to match the body)
10" lift with a coilover conversion in the front
20 or 22" American force wheels with 40" Super Swampers (exact tire isnt decided upon yet)
Small small system, nothing brain crushing, but there is quite a bit of sub box room behind those back seats
LED everything again. As i understand the 2013s already come pretty accent LED'd out, which means hopfully i can just change the white LEDs out for blue/purple ones (color is undecided at this point lol)


Ill keep you guys updated, but Im definitely not leaving the forum

The lift will be a little over the top, but I plan on a lot of open field mudding/silver lake sand dunes etc so while a 6" on 37s would do, why be like everyone else?


Its a shame cuz the drop spindles and all the air stuff for my 1500 just came in this week too but its not stuff my dad will want to mess with on the truck when hes driving it

Silverlake is about halfway up the state on Lake MI


I was raised in Jackson, well just outside Jackson in a town called Pleasant Lake.

Hey! I went out last night and got some milk. The cow did a nice job, so I tipped her.
