Here's my 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab 3500 dually conversion. It was originally set as a 2500, but I changed that up quickly. After I had the dually conversion done, I put in a 6-inch lift with Fox shocks and a remote reservoir with Firestone airbags in the rear. I finished up under the truck with a dual 5-inch turbo back exhaust and put on 6-inch black tips, plus a set of Rock Star dually wheels and wrapped them with 35-inch Toyo tires. Under the hood I put in a new cold air intake, an H&S Mini Maxx and 120hp injectors. I also installed a deep tranny pan from ATS. I then did a little upgrade to the steering and then I started taking care of the cosmetics.

I had the underbody and frame custom painted black, installed a custom grille and front bumper. I also installed some LED head and tail lights. I changed the hood out with a SRT hood with a functional scoop and had the Dodge custom painted black all around. I went ahead and de-badged it, installed a B&W goose next hitch in the bed and put in a Laramie package with custom fenders. Once I got started with everything, it only took me a week to get it all done.

This is my 2005 Ford F250 Harley Davidson edition. I really wanted to get something that looked different than the other trucks on the road, so I knew I needed to give this thing some great looks and performance. Starting out, I have it sitting high with a BDS 6-inch lift, 37-inch Toyo tires that I wrapped around KMC wheels. I also put in an aFe cold air intake and elbow, installed ARP head studs, a set of River City Diesel 180cc injectors and a River City Diesel 68mm hybrid turbo.

Later, I installed a regulated fuel kit, AirDog II kit, an ATS stage 3 transmission and a SCT tuner with 3 custom tunes, courtesy of River City Diesel. To finish the major work, I installed a 4-inch straight pipe exhaust. After I did some of the performance, I figured I would start to work on the aesthetics. I started by installing Bushwacker pocket style fender flares and later put on N-Fab 3 step running boards.

I purchased my 2006 Chevy Duramax brand new back in 2007. It all started with an Edge Juice with Attitude, exhaust and a cold air intake. Then I hooked it to a pulling sled the year after I bought it and have been hooked ever since. The next upgrades were a PPE Programmer and a FASS pump to get the fuel to the CP3. That is also when I had the transmission built with a Suncoast kit and a 1056 converter. After running it for a year I realized I needed more. I put a 68mm Stage 2 turbo, Exergy injectors and I custom built the tail end. Later I installed new rods, forged pistons, valve springs and keepers, Billet Flexplate, So Cal cam, So Cal dampener and also installed an Exergy 10mm CP3 to feed the Exergy injectors. I do all the work on my truck myself besides the tuning.
