When I bought my Dodge, I decided to give it a name of its own. There was a certain unique personality to it, so I went with the name Bridget. She's powered by a 6BT Cummins and geared by an Eaton Fuller RT00-9513. The transmission I have in her is a triple overdrive, 13-speed out of a semi truck and it's a blast to drive and has a first gear ratio of 12.10:1 and 13th is 0.61:1. When I bought the truck, there was a lot I wanted to do to it. I decided that the best way to get what I wanted out of it was to rebuild the truck from the ground up. When I decided to go with the semi tranny, I did it because I wanted something that was really different than the ordinary trans that are in other trucks. There's one thing for sure about this particular Dodge: there really isn't anything else like it on the road.

My 2006 2500HD Duramax has every option included but a rear DVD player and sliding rear window. It's sitting on 35x12.5 Nitto tires on 22-inch Gear Wheels +15 offset 9.51 wide rim, 6-inch pro comp lift, 6-inch front bracket, 4-inch rear blocks, Bushwacker fender flares and a set of handmade removable mud flaps. Also a Ranch Hand legend series bumper with LED fog lights, four-way HIDS, 35 watt 5k lows and 55 watt 5k highs, NBS clearance lights and smoked tail lights and third brake light keep my 2500 well lit. I put on a dyno mat on the rear fire wall and floor, bed liner on the underside of my rockers, door jams, bed and entire underbody. I also installed an Edge CTS Insight, EFI Live with DSP5 tunes by Josh at Jags pro truck, PPE race valve, FASS titanium 150 pump, PCV reroute, Banks hot side, ATA pipe, MBRP down pipe, S&B intake and a Banks 5-inch exhaust with 6-inch tip, which is also bed lined black. I had the transfer case pump upgrade from MA. I put in Rare Parts HD tie rods and Cognito sway bar end lines, hydraulic trans lines and fittings. Mobile One synthetics can be found all over the truck. This awesome pickup is my daily driver and it always turns heads.

I bought my 2008 Ford F250 6.4L Harley Davidson edition with 22,000 miles. I installed a Rize 6-inch lift and put on Rize Traction Bars, Rize 4-Link King Off-road Shocks and 37-inch ProComp tires. I had a 2006 F250 6.0L before this one and wanted to upgrade to the 6.4L since it’s a good platform and they are just simply insane motors! I also have an H&S Race tuner, Diamond Eye, and S&B intake on their way in and will have them installed as soon as the parts arrive. I will be getting a catalog of parts through Maryland Performance Diesel to make it hit four digits and I'll have the parts installed by Dynamic Diesel/DX2 PARTS. Right now I use my F250 to haul the Twin Turbo Mustang to the track and also to haul dirt, gravel and logs.
