Up for auction is a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Extendedcab SLT 4x4. The truck has 158,000 miles which is just getting broke in forthese Cummins engines. The engine starts up and runs great, she has a lot ofpower. I bought this truck from a diesel mechanic and as a daily driver butdecided to start building it up. Just had my first son last week and realizedthe truck is not going to be practical without having a club cab hinse thereason for sale.
It has an HX 40 turbo with a bigger intake.
The fuel pump is turned up and fuel plate is shavedat #100 were it has the little sliver on the bottom with advanced timing. Yesit rolls the coal but gets decent fuel mileage if youíre easy on it.
It was an automatic and had the 5 speed conversionkit done right. I just put a new clutch in 2 months ago.
It has a full 5" MDRP all the way back with a4" downpipe from turbo.
It has a BD exhaust brake with the switch on thegear shift and works amazingly. Hardly ever haft to use your brakes with it on.
It has adjustistable rear suspension air bags and they work nice when hauling.
The carrier bearing started getting a lil loose so Ireplaced that 2 weeks ago.
New serpentine belt, water pump, front wheelbearings rotors shoes and pads all last summer.
It has a 4" lift kit with 36x12.5x16 MickeyThompson Baja Claws on it right now but I also have a set of 17" rims thatgo along with the truck(tires are shot).
The bed is rhino lined as well as the whole bottomof the truck.
As for interior itís not the greatest due it beinga daily driver but it just needs cleaned up. The driverís seat as a whole but thatabout it.
Boost pressure and exhaust temp gauges.
The truck has its little kinks but can be very verynice truck with little work.
It needs a fuel shutoff solenoid
The fuel gauge is off by a quarter and the Speedois off due to the bigger tires.
The 4x4 works awesome it just needs a new universalso the front driveshaft is in the bed at the moment. Hasnít had the time to putit back in.
The door lock actuator went out on the driverísside door and will need a new one.
The rust isnít that bad for being a 97 but it coulduse some work such as both rocker panels and the driverís side rear cabcorner(saw it was a lil rusty when I had it on the lift 2 months ago when I putthe clutch in)
The truck is quick, gets up and goes, and will pull anything, even with what work has beendone to it now. I know there is some things that Iím forgetting and I haveníthad it dynode yet but Iím guessing itís around 450+ horse and you can see the gaugebuild 50 psi of boost with no problem when you want it to. She has a lot ofpotential just not right in my circumstances and I hate to get rid of it butfamily comes first. Iím selling the truck as is because of it being a 97.Thanks for looking and happy bidding.
I appoligize for the pictures and the confusion on the tires. The truck currently has the 36" micky T's on it with 16 in rims. It also comes with a set of 17" rims with smaller tires(as in most of the pictures) but the tires are shot. Thanks

No one wants to have their car stolen, but a new study by the National Insurance Crime Bureau has some bad news for older Honda owners and pickup drivers. Fortunately, it has better news for drivers overall. The group is reporting that according to preliminary data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, thefts were down 3.2 percent in 2013 (versus 2012) to fewer than 700,000 cars. That's the lowest figure since 1967. That's also less than half of the peak of over 1.66 million thefts in 1991. "The drop in thefts is good news for all of us," says NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle. "But it still amounts to a vehicle being stolen every 45 seconds and losses of over $4 billion a year."

Honda drivers might not find it such good news with older Accord and Civic models topping this year's theft study. Toyota and Dodge can't really celebrate, either, with two models each on the list, as well. Overall, this year's list was split evenly between foreign and domestic models, which were mostly pickups.
The 10 most likely vehicles to be stolen in 2013 were:

Want to get your hands on a new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and can't wait to be the first to get one? Las Vegas will be the place to be on September 27. That's where Barrett-Jackson will auction off the very first example. And you'd better bring your checkbook, because the bidding is sure to be fierce with all the proceeds going to charity.
The supercharged Challenger with VIN 0001 has been hand-painted in Stryker Red (usually reserved for the Viper) and features special badging, documentation and accompanying memorabilia - not to mention, of course, that 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8. The car will be on display this weekend as well at Barrett-Jackson's Hot August Nights auction in Reno.
As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.
