    Welcome in. What goals do you have in mind for modification? My personal "favorite" mods are differential traction aids to more effectively put the power being generated to the road surface (whatever that might be). For me, the 2.73 gear reduction at the tcase (in 4L) provides all the power I need, so I don't usually need engine mods.

    You should do twin blowers and quad turbo's like I saw on this MAC Truck. Then maybe a 24'' lift on some huge monster truck tires and paint it like the Grave Digger. Hey, I'm just sayin... I cant be the only one thinking it.

    Slidell is just a stop sign, east of Decatur, north of Fort Worth.

    I'm thinking a diesel conversion, Cummins to be exact. Checked them all out, and the inline 6 seems to be the best on the market. Sorry Duramax fans I ain't runnin no Jap motor in my truck, I bought American and plan on keeping it that way.

    I'll get some pics up just as soon as I get a new camera.

    Thanks for the welcome, I'm a Mopar guy at heart, owned a couple 73 Challengers, couple of Satellite Sebrings, 2 Fury's, a few Dodge trucks and other misc cars. I bought the 'Burb cause it's big and I need room for my 3 kids. It'll also be a nice tow rig for my 68 Cuda (presently not running, only reason it's being towed BTW, I don't condone towing driveable cars no matter their value) and boat I plan on buying in the next year or 2

    I do have a pic of the Cuda though
