    this is my 2000 dodge dakota.she won many trophies,she is black and clean and never saw a night outside ever.i ripped off every emblem blacked out everything including the front and back lights.i took the aluminum wheels and painted them ppg pitch black and clear coated them.i had a custon vynal ram in red on my bed cover and slight red rams here and there the lines on her are as beautiful as any woman.i put i flowmaster 50 big block series muffler on it so it does not resonate in the truck but when you get on it she roars, a locker in the rear.i took out the factory 273 v8 and bought a brand new from the factory 360 magnum r/t motor then i put i cold air intake on it,a blocking plate between the plenum and throttle body,put on the hottest coil packs i could find,i put in bigger injectors,a 180 degree thermostat and flex fan to keep the truck as cool as possible.i put a bra on the front and it was a pitas to take off and on so i took a day and cut it in three pieces and i can open the hood now,i rechippered it and reprogrammed the brain to my specs and a friend of mine dynoed the truck at 400 hp at the rear wheels and it is 4wd extended cab with 63k original miles and i even have the window sticker and all the booklets with it.i wash it every week and hand wax it so it shines so bright you can read the numbers off a dollar bill in the finish i will post a pic

    I'm slowing down as I grow older. I have an 07 Stang GT we bought new and I haven't done a darned thing to it, oil and filters and that's it. Every time I get a Summit catalog in the mail I make a mental list of goodies. But then I think what the heck for? I can't use what it has now without getting into serious trouble. Besides I have the Duster for that. But it's still just not right. I've never had a car or truck I didn't modify. The only thing I don't like about it is the lack of bottom end grunt. But it's a naturally aspirated 4.6l and without a supercharger it's never going to have any bottom end grunt. Gears would help, but that would flush the gas mileage. See what I mean? Everything I consider I talk myself out of. If jail was an option and you throw in some corners I could smoke 98% of everybody just the way it is. It can be depressing getting old and safe.:(
