So I have been without her (I guess its a her?) since May 2nd.

The roof has been replaced and all dents removed. Its primed and clean and ready for paint... except... the new hood and front bumper are MIA.

They shipped June 6th, but never showed up. They are working to either track them down or get new ones sent out.

the hood and front bumper are those shown in the link above. I think it will look awesome when its done!!

If I ever get it back.

oh heck yeah, getting a full gauge setup... pyro, trans, and probably a 3rd just not sure which one I want yet. But then again I might go digital so I can get it to go into the data logger. Not sure yet.

pyrometer, boost and trans is a good combo. Some people like knowing fuel pressure but it is a bit overkill for a mild 3rd gen IMO.

yeah I am not worried about fuel pressure. more interested in trans temp and the turbo. As long as those 2 are happy the truck will be happy.

Can't wait to see it all back together with the new hood and number and whole new paint job!!!

then I have to take it to dodge for the air bag recall.

After that its new carpet and getting the front seats fixed, probably the steering wheel finally. then it will be good to go

I see the light at the end of the tunnel!!!

The fog lights were broke so I ordered replacements for those. He should have the front bumper on today... I am guessing the hood and grille too, so early next week I can pick her up!!

I got her picked up last night. I will get some pics today... its AWSOME!!!!

the only down side is that they did not re-install my gooseneck hitch in the new bed. So now I have to cut a 10" square myself to get that installed.

I called around and it does not seem like anyone will touch those now days. They want to install the new style, but I am not going to pay $800 to upgrade to the new style when the old one works just fine.
