Default My 1996 build....

I did not find a spot just for builds so I am putting this here. hope it is ok. Well here I go with my truck. It is a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 SLT. It is equipped with a 5.9 (360), auto trans with overdrive. It has some problems right now that I will fix first. First on that list is the ignition switch, followed by the front u-joint on the passengers side. New joint was in the glove box so I figured I should go ahead and put it in. The exhaust is broke coming off of the passengers side manifold so that gives me a good reason to bolt on a set of shorty headers and full dual exhaust.
Next up will be the head lights and the radio. The current headlights work but need some help so I will go with a set of Halo lights and as for the radio that is still undecided.
Well more to come, with better pics. Shaun

Well with work and all I have not had a lot of time with her. But this is where things sit right now. I have ordered an entire bushing kit for the front end. I will be getting into the brakes first thing tomorrow as coming home tonight at the last stop sign the brake pedal suddenly dropped to the floor, probably broke a line, got to expect that the truck does have 210000 miles on her. While I was not overly concerned about the exhaust two things have pushed me to try to get it taken care of soon, one is a check engine light that is driving me nuts the other is a local LEO that does not much care for the db she is at. Life moves on and the work will continue. The pic here if of the bad side. This will require some cutting and welding I think. More to come, Shaun

Yep the steel brake lines right at the point they are fastened to the frame sprung a leak. I was going to put in a patch but have decided to just replace the entire line, better safe than sorry. And another pic. Shaun
I do hope the final paint on my truck looks as good as God did with this evening sky. Shaun
