Mike may have been getting parts through a shop like This vs going through a dealer.

But I do know he also has an inside contact to get Mopar parts much cheaper than we could.
its a shame he didn't have time to paint it for you guys...he has an awesome Paint Booth as his shop...regardless glad to hear its on its way back

He had all the parts in he needed on a Friday and busted his hump over the weekend just to get both trans built in time to hit FedEx Monday.

I appreciated the time he put in and that painting would have taken an extra day or two.

I wish I was closer, sure would be nice to meet all you guys in person
...and maybe even spend some quality track time with y'all.

How many passes did they make before they were pushed onto a trailer, or were they able to drive home under their own power then to work the next day?


Granted we don't have a truck near 1000hp using our transmission yet, but give us until the end of the year.... we'll find out what the next weak link in the driveline is.

Okay, I don't know the score here but by saying "our transmission," are you inferring that you are L&M Customs?

No, L&M Customs is a company... I am a person.

Mike owns it. I've worked with him for the last 5 years. I was there helping with almost every project since he bought his ram. I've probably clocked more hours holding a turbo over my head than 1/2 of the people on here have spent standing in a shop.

Understood. I've just started working with Mike for my build. I pass through Delaware twice a month so hopefully I'll be able to leave my ride with him for a week or so.

Yup, already know

I might be there depending on when you drop it off. Looking forward to meeting you and getting to work on your truck

Well shoot, what a small ass world!

I'm looking forward to letting you guys have some fun with my baby. It's no turbo, but she'll make you smile!

That can be fixed If it makes you smile now, a turbo will make you smile like the joker.
