    Dodge Advice

    Oh man, my first truck was a '94 Ram 1500 5.9 single cab LB, that truck went throuch torque converters like they were going out of style, same with the tranny sensors and the cooler. The newer dodges (my '01 4x4 dakota 5.9 for example) are alot smoother on shifting and feel like they have tighter tolerancesbuild wise, but i've still had my share of growing pains with that truck too. IMO, every truck i've owned has been a dodge and let me say this, do yourself a favor and don't even bother with the things unless it's a stick. As somebody else said the Dakotas are bitchin' and i would recommend those above all, a 5.9 if you can find one. Thee trucks will hold up to anything and everything, just keep on eye on the tranny if it's an auto. EDIT: My Dakota has 94,3** miles on it and i've replaced the torque converter twice, had 2nd and 3rd gear replaced and had my right side arms and steering replaced (but that's because i put OEM replacment bilsteins on it and i thought it was a trophy truck and got it airborne). Other than that this thing has done everything i've asked it to, including joining me for a meal of rice with a side of ford now and then, hehe She get's an average of 9.3 miles to the gallon with 12-13 on the highway. Has hooker headers, K&N intake and i think 32"? Baja T/A's

    Duramax or PowerStroke

    And I'd rather have Allison do alll the above for me
  3. I'm the same way, I love everything about dodges except for their trannies, gas or diesel, unless it's a manual. But yeah, i know what you been. Both the trucks are basicly $41,000 i just don't wanna get the wrong thing.
  4. I've actually been a dodge owner for a while (first had a 5.9L ram 1500 and now i have 5.9L Dakota) and they are awsome trucks, just for some reason dodge can't build a torque converter to save their life. I love dodges but i can't stand their auto trannies.
  5. Hey guys, I was looking into getting a new truck and i've been really fixated on a 4x4 diesel and Chevy/GMC is the only thing i trust. I went to a dealer today and found two that really caught my eye. The GMC is about a grand more and has 1,200 less miles on it than the chevy (around 39,000 miles which is nothing for a diesel). So my question is this, I know GMC's and chevy's are highly identical (if not the same thing on most models) and was curious if there is any differance between the two trucks? the Chevy is an '05 or '06 and the GMC is an '06. thanks boyos

    Other peoples bikes.

    I've actually never had trouble adapting to a bike except for the '05+ hondas and KTM's.
  10. i think the 2004 CRF450 i owned was godly. I may my Zook and Yami dialed in but i regret selling that puppy, the work and sweat i put into that thing rivaled that of any factory wrench and it i never had ANY issues with it...EVER.

    I don't know who told u to do that on a track but that's an old desert racer trick when you are pinned WOT for a great deal of time.

    For MX - To Use a Damper or Not to Use a Damper?

    not done yet. I have the lower tree tapped and mounted but i'm still working on the mount for the top using the frame holes for the CDI mount. It mounts and works but it still needs work because it's slightly rubbing the number plate.

    For MX - To Use a Damper or Not to Use a Damper?

    and that's exactly what i'm using, a 65mm stroke Ohlins (HyperPro was too big) damper to put behind it.
