BEEP BEEP BEEP. WAit wait wait hold the phone. Is this CONFIRMATION!?!?

WHY HASN'T THE PROFILE PICS REFLECTED THIS YET?

Either way awesome!!

I personally would love a new 2013 Cummins...actually the one I posted is perfect. With that said though my payments would increase a lot more than 25 a month.

Congrats on the new ride either way.

EDIT: I'm slow... IMO you should do stage 3 first. It will make you smile!

That's not bad at all! I'm assuming the term of the loan increased then? Either way, definitely worth it IMO! Too bad my dealership doesn't have any '12 2500's left. I'd be really tempted to do the same thing.

Its not 100% confirmed in my mind until the funds clear and the truck is signed for. But the drivers are delivering the truck and the buyers have sent me all the signed paperwork so its 99.9% done.

I don't want to do H&S just yet because I don't want to ruin my warranty with 140 on the ODO. around 50k miles ill start messing with H&S. Plus if I move to Houston it wouldnt pass emissions. Lift right now is more important. Unfortunately I have a tough decision. 20x12 wheels or 20x10 BMF Novakanes. I really really really want the novakanes, but they only come in 20x10 and i've been wanting 20x12 forever.

The loan only went up 25 bucks because I put a lot down when I buy. So I barely owed on mine and am putting a substantial amount down on the Cummins.

With how big you plan on going with this truck and how much I've seen you talking about 20x12's I'd say definitely go for those. 20x10's might look a little small with the 8" lift and 38's.

EDIT (about the loan): Oh okay, makes sense. Putting money down at the beginning is definitely the way to go. Keeps the monthly payments lower to allow for more mod money

True, i've been reading that 20x12 on 38s wont fit... So I may need 20x10 to clear 38

Oh really? Even with the 8" lift?? That seems a little weird... you'd think you could get the proper backspacing to make it work. Or does that push them out too far so that they start rubbing on the fenders instead?

A few Sad/Happy pics.










It amazes me how close the 2500 sits next to the 1500. With 35s I feel like the 2500 will be close in height... to a 1500 with 8" and 37s. Cant wait to get this thing built
