Default Noob in West Ga/ Atlanta area checkin in!

Hello everyone!
Thought I would jump in. I just picked up my Dodge yesterday and I am very excited. Been a Ram fan for a long time. I got the truck used, but its everything I have been looking for.

She's an '06 Laramie Quad Cab. Blizzard White. 4x4. With the 5.9L Cummins Diesel. 108K on the clock.

After some recent, severe flooding in the southeast over a month ago. My beloved '00 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 was litteraly under water (I have pics to prove it!). I found it time to get something that could haul me and my girlfriend 3 Nissan 300zx sports cars as well as our ATVs on our various trips. The Jeep just couldnt do it.

I looked at Titans, Tundras, Frontiers and Tacomas when I came across my Dodge hiding right under my nose at a local dealership.

I m generally around the West Ga area (Cobb, Paulding, Douglas and Carrol counties) and I go to all the local ATV riding areas and race tracks. I m eager to learn and have alot of plans for this rig to build it into the ideal truck I see it becoming.

- Dustin aka "HaulZ"

I ll be getting pics up in day or so. My overall direction with the truck is more on function and comfort. I dont plan on doing any crazy lifts (2" at most). Definitly looking to beef up the engine to pull some more power out of it. I have already gotten a set AVS vent visors and Bushwacker Extenda-fender fender flares on order (I choose these over the Cut out and pockets since they look is alot cleaner IMHO).

Are there many on here who do ATV riding or road race/drag race events?

Welcome to the Z! We have quite a few ATVrs on here. I have a grizzly 550 I got off my uncle that he used as part of his surveying company, but wanted to downsize... my gain i guess. When it comes to getting some power out of the 5.9L cummins, a larger filter-back exhaust (4"+ dia), a Banks power scoop and CAI, and a tuner will make a world of difference. There's a lot more you can do, but I think it'll be more than you want to do just reading what your plans are.

Would love to see those pics of your submerged Jeep. Guess you didn't have a snorkel kit, eh?
