Thanks everyone.

a few answers here. "How do I like the HEMI"? It's ok but the 12mpg sucks! I like that it is quiet inside however.

Why did I switch from a Cummin's to a HEMI, because I got a great deal on the HEMI and the Cummins is real expensive right now. I do miss the power however.

Please look at the DEC 09 issue of Diesel World, that is my old 2005 on the cover. No BS, the guy that owns it now took it from me at 450 HP and now it;s in the 700's.

NO WAY! I just picked that up yesterday to pass the slow time at work. That is a sick truck!
The MPGs aren't as good as a diesel for sure, though you should be getting better than 12 MPG, even with a 2500. Too bad your 2500 doesn't come with the MDS though, it helps big. Planning on a CAI, exhaust, tuner to boost the MPGs any?

Yes Way. He added the bumpers and the extra CP3 and Twins. A few more things of course. It was 454 HP when he bought it from me but its way higher now! I had the SRT hood and other things done when I had it, he has more $$ to add obviously.

On the Hemi I have now, yes I have pland but I have been working on the looks first. I have added wheels and tires, amp steps and flares. Currently working on a set of custom bumpers.

Yes, they will be similar to Road Armour but a one of. Using a mix of 3/16 and 1/4 gauge. I work at a steel mill so I have no problem with materials!
