New job, New truck.........

Got a new gig hauling FEMA trailers down south for the Katrina victims. Bought a 2006 Dodge Ram to do the work as my '98 couldn't handle the job (180hp just didn't cut it).

Pay is really good for sitting on your ass while travelling the country.

Ok, on with the pics.....pay attention Moparboyy......

With the Bully Dog downloader, I can dial in from the stock 325hp/610ft.lbs., 3 stages of power.

Tow mode adds 70hp/100ft.lbs
Performance mode 95hp/200ft.lbs.
Extreme mode 140hp/280 ft.lbs.

and the kicker......the Extreme mode was auto upgraded to what they call Crazy Larry(don't have a clue who he is) which jumps it to 180hp/ 300ft.lbs...........for a grand total of 505hp/910ft.lbs. of tire roasting diesel power!

I'm also adding the intake kit for another 15hp/30ft.lbs when they get more in stock.

Not to mention this thing is on-the-fly adjustable and does 9 other things to the accessories with the truck that you just can't get from the dealer.
