Looks really cool, looking forward to seeing videos of it rolling.

If you havent gotten into the electronics yet I would recomend an H&S tuner. I would say they have the best programers for 6.7 and they are extremely helpful when it comes to customer service and custom tunes

Just curious is the 1500 frame strong enough in stock form or are you having to do any additional bracing? Also what rear end are you running, AAM 11.5"?. Love the project though can't wait to see more progress!

the frame is strong enough. no additional bracing needed. as of now im running the 11.5 rear end with 3.42 gears. i will be going to a 9'' and four link on the winter.

i am also going to build twins in the fall of summer if everything goes good

Completely impressed with the size of your [email protected]!!! Damn it.:SHOCKED: Really cool and it starts about 100 questions for me. Most come from "I wish I was doing this" brain pattern.
1) Why a 6.7? I would have thought the 5.9 would have been the choice given the nearly identical power and better mileage. (okay, I feel stupid for talking about mileage on this project)
2) Changing the rear axle housing/springs to a 2500 unit I hope? Because you'll twist the 1500 like a pretzel and axle wrap the hell out of the springs. (and driveshaft of course)
3) How bad is the computer & harness swapping going to be?
4) I hate you. :smileup: (not really a question as much as it is jealousy).

Okay you don't have to answer any of these, but my brain started rolling as soon as I saw the thread title. sry. Can't wait to see more down the road form this project. Good luck to ya!

6.7's are monsters and get similar fuel mileage to a 5.9 w without the DPF!

I love it. When I started shopping for a new truck, it had been a while, I was hoping someone had put a diesel in a new 1500. I would have bought it.
