I run a BullyDog PowerPup plug and Play unit that gave me 445 hp and 838 tq. at Smokin in April
'07. I have a AEM Brute Force Intake, Aluminum Billet door knobs, yellow (solar yellow) door knob bellows, ISSPRO gauges, OEM running boards with Ram head insert, Stainless tip on exhaust and best of all this is a daily driver working hard every day towing trailers, vehicles, our 5th wheel camper and has now rolled over the 62K mark this past weekend.

Nothing fancy, just a hard working truck that is well maintained and is kept cleaned

Thanks for looking.

1st place at Smokin the Bluegrass for Show-n-Shine September '06
1st place at Smokin the Smokies (Spring '07) Show -n- Shine for 3/4 ton class (Triton got best overall - congrats)
Thanks to Mike at DPM Dyno for the graphics
