Hi there! First let me start off by saying that I'm excited to be here and look forward from all your input. Second, I've been a Mopar man my whole life. I currently own a 2005 Ram 1500. That's what brings me to your forum. I want to invest some money into my truck to improve the performance. I'm not to sure where to start and looking for some guidance. Currently I have an after market exhaust with Gibson headers and a K&N. Where to go from here beats me. I would appreciate your input.

Oh! Also I have some concerns. I own a 4.7 engine. When I first bought it I didnt think it would be an issue with power. After reading some forums I'm starting to have second thoughts. I want to be able to tow some trailers with no issue. Nothing huge but reasonable. I guess what I'm asking is should I invest money into my current truck or upgrade now? I'm on the fence. Thanks for all your help. Thanks!

Welcome fellow New Mexican!

I don't know a lot about the 4.7, but I think it will serve most uses fine. If you are pulling heavy trailers often, you might want to upgrade.
