How often would you recommend exercising it? And what do you do with seafoam??

The things your talking about I have heard referred to as window visors.

I doubt you'll be able to do a decent cat-back system under $300 esspecially duals. Your talking bigger pipe and a longer distance to travel on a truck so expect to pay more for all that additional material. However Chrysler has been using mandrel bend pipes for quite a while so the whole cat-back replacement might be unnessisary. Try doing just the muffler and delete the resonator if you have one. That should be more in your price range.

I have no idea about the 2-4 shift. Someone else might have the info (possibly Randy?) but if you find out let us all know.

Welcome to the board.
I just wanted a few noteworthy sites I guess because I have very little trust in some of these websites you see...if I just got a muffler, would it sound good and get good performance? couldnt be as good as the dualies and a cat back, no? In other words would you say it's worth saving my money and spending around $500? or is that still too little? How do I know if I have a resonator? And also, i noticed that there's enough torque to start in 2nd gear most of the times, is that bad? The dealer didnt tell me anything about anything I didn't even get a manual. I dont even know what kind of oil I should be buying I was thinking 10w-30? since it's cold outside by me in NY maybe 0w-30 or 5w-30? I wake up and drive every morning when it's like 20 degrees sometimes colder. But it's really cold in the morning by me. And I was thinking that shifting at around 1700 or so might save some gas? or better to bring it up to 2 grand? Sorry I have all these questions I just really want whats best for my truck and not too many people are of much help by where I live they all just want my money. And thank ya'll for all the welcomes!

You guys are starting to sound like the Wankel engine crowd. Of course, wrapping up my RX8 to 9,000 RPM was a ton o' fun!

How often would you suggest doing the seafoam thing? I'm in the lower 40k range atm so maybe sometime this year?

Yup! the concept is great, unfortunately that's as far as it gets. I'm not sure about the newer ones but the old ones were bad for blowing the seals out.

I did the mopar combustion chamber cleaner cause my rockers were falling off. Ran that stuff through and it hasn't done it since.
