Looking good. Your battery relocation is no common feat either

Awesome mods and a great looking truck

I'll agree with you 100%, I'll never own an automatic transmission without a higher stall converter again, it makes it so fun to drive!

TNX! The battery relocation is not NHRA legal yet because it lacks an emergency cut-off switch and a couple of other small things but I will work on it. I probably can't get to a 1/4-mile track for a couple of months yet so there's plenty of time. Clearly, I would rather run in cooler autumn air anyway.

Hey man, thanks! I see your posts on the Buell forum occasionally. I've got one too. 2009 XB12Ss Lightning
Maybe great minds really do run in the same direction...

Everything you have done so far is perfect for this truck. I also have a 2011 RCSB. We have a lot of the same mods, and wanting the same mods. Next on my list is the Circle D 2800-3000 stall and the OEM 4:10 gears w/ LSD can I ask how much all the parts and install for the OEM gears were? Did you order the gears yourself or went to them and asked?

Far as nitrous I plan on spraying my truck as well(75-125 shot), when I get my PCM back from B&G when they tune it for the 93 octane, no Tq management, raised rev limiter, and etc.. Far as plugs you need are 1 step colder. NGK7787 or Denso 3381

I ordered the parts through my local Dodge dealer where I bought the truck. The Parts Department called Dodge to make sure they ordered all necessary parts to go from my old ZF 9.25" 3.55 open differential to the R/T ZF 9.25" 4.10 LSD, i.e.- LSD carrier, all bearings, seals, ring and pinion gears, etc. The total for all OEM parts was $985. I had my transmission shop do the installation because of their established reputation for technical expertise. They charged about $350 for labor and synthetic fluids. The new LSD gears work flawlessly and silently, and provide higher truck performance. I was torn between 4.1 and 4.56 ratios. If needed later, I'll install Yukon 4.56 gears. My parts list is attached. Hope this helps.

About your spark plug recommendations, aren't they both platinum plugs? If so, a few 3rd/4th gen guys have complained about negative effects (misfires and failed coil packs) with platinum plugs. Know anything about that?

Again my prayers go out to your wife and her health. I think I speak for everyone when I say we wish her a full recovery!

With that being said what an impressive list! As for your stall issue i have had similar experiences when throttling through an empty dirt road doing fish tails. It is a reaction from the computer when these factors combine. Loss of traction, rapid increase in speed, and lastly large body wiggle throwing the stability off. Which honestly which dodge doesn't when pedal to the metal?!?! Any way yes we almost rolled down the hill recently.

I would say experiment with that and see what happens.

Lastly i would say that if the performance mods got you what you wanted in driving than I say to he'll with numbers and dynos, though with everything considered you are easily 30+ hp from where you started! Meaning that the factory numbers are now at the wheels! I would say also that if you disconnect the battery for a bit and put the key in the run position and than off for 15 seconds and finally start it up just to let it idle you should be better with eelectronic traction control.

Was there a special kit that you used to relocate the battery to the bed? This is something i was thinking about to help clean up under the hood when i get my vararam and efan.
