Some updates and pictures:

I went down to BD Diesels Dyno Days on Saturday (definitely something worth seeing) and they had a 68rfe transmission cut open to show the internals. I thought it was pretty interesting and thought some of you guys might want to see what the inside looks like. So here's a picture:



On Sunday I finally got to hook up to a decent sized trailer. As I've probably mentioned before my parents bought a new house so right now we're cleaning ours up and getting rid of a bunch of stuff while we list it to make it look bigger and less cluttered. So we started loading everything up in the trailer. We only loaded it up about half way for now.... but it had quite a bit of stuff in it.

Once it was loaded I took it back down to another Uncles to store there for a while. I literally went up and over a mountain to get to his place. The truck pulled it no problem up, had tons of power to play with and didn't hesitate at all. I could have kept accelerating up the steepest hills pretty good if I wanted to. Then on the way back down the tow/haul nicely shifted it down and let the exhaust brake do the work; I barely had to touch the brakes. There were a few times where I actually had to give it a bit of fuel to get the exhaust brake to let go a bit because it was holding back too well.

It also barely squatted even loaded with all the weight up in the front of the trailer. I didn't have the WD bars on either (too short of a ride to worry about them). Overall all it has 100% lived up to my towing expectations. I'm looking forward to when we actually move and load that trailer up to the max. Then it should be up to some pretty decent weight.




Those tow mirrors stick out quite a ways for everyday driving

There were a few places that I had to drive were the road gets fairly narrow and when buses or trucks were coming up the other way I was definitely watching those mirrors closely to make sure they didn't hit anything.

And then a quick night shot I took showing the lights before I backed the trailer into the shop:




My Sinister EGR/cooler delete kit arrived at the shipping office last Thursday and my H&S MiniMaxx is supposed to arrive today. So tonight I'll run down across the border to get fuel and pick both those packages up. Then it's just a matter of replenishing my mod fund to be able to order a full turbo back exhaust kit so I can run all those goodies. I think I might look at installing the tuner and deletes at the end of December or beginning of January so I can put the tow tune to use when we move in mid January.

We have an identical cargo trailer like that at work and we got it stuck towing it with our 04 2500 hemi RWD QCLB up a steep hill in the rain... Can't even tell it is on your truck. I know what you mean about tight spots and tow mirrors.. I leave mine flipped all the time because I'm a jackass like that.. Holy hell I am the width of a tank.

I was thinking of that today. I went to have my wheels re-torqued and they wanted me to pull in the shop so I pressed the Fold button for my normal mirrors. Then it hit me. Why can't they have telescoping and rotating mirrors that transform from Tow Mode to Driving Mode? It would take two motors in the mirrors but they already have folding mirrors. Seems to me with a little engineering they could give us the best of both worlds.

Yes I actually just posted about that in another forum. I'm surprised they don't have a power flip option yet. It would be so useful! With power fold being an option now I could see power flip coming within the next few years.

The first time I drove a 2012 cummins identical to yours but white.. I thought that they were power flip and spent about 10 minutes looking for the damn button. It was a customers who just bought a massive fifth wheel and we were setting up the truck and trailer for him.

Ya it would be a really nice option to have. I'm surprised they haven't made the convex part powered/heated yet either. That would be another nice thing. It's a pain having to try and adjust those by hand to get them exactly where you want them.

Here are the goodies that I picked up last night



H&S Performance MiniMaxx with custom MCC tunes by Draconian Diesel

Mileage - 40hp/116ft-lbs
Tow - close to stock
Street - 100hp/292ft-lbs
Street Performance - 125hp/365ft-lbs

And a Sinister EGR/cooler delete kit.

I also have the overhead mount coming for the MiniMaxx to be able to install it nice and cleanly into the truck. Then it's just a matter of ordering up an exhaust system and then I'll have everything to be able to run the tuner and deletes.

Awesome. And why are these things not already installed lol. I wouldn't have been able to sleep with a tuner in a box lol.

Atleast you still have both of your convex mirrors. My driver side one on the 3rd gen fell off and broke. Dodge doesn't sell just glass and the one place I found on here wants 140 plus tax for a 3" by 3.5" mirror

Looks fantastic good luck with everything.
