Chad Carroll

Jackson, OH

1997 Dodge Ram 2500

 Chad Carroll purchased his truck in June of 2005, two days after he graduated from Sheridan High School in Thornville, OH. It's been a work in progress and has morphed into what it is today. But it has always been a farm truck.

It is a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 12 Valve Cummins. The exterior was sprayed with a custom mixed deep impact blue paint in 2014. It has a 3.5-inch Dominator cowl hood from and is finished up with a Sport Grille+Farfromstock Inserts and a 4th Gen bumper.

It also has 22x12 fuel forged wheels wrapped in Nitto ATs, and 4 link ladder bars from McCabe Diesel. The motor has a 4k GSK and full-cut delivery valves, an AFE BladeRunner intake manifold, 5x16 injectors by Lee at Contagious Diesel, a Stainless Diesel compound turbo kit that consists of a 366 over a billet 480 with the race cover. BD intercooler boots attempt to hold it all together. 

The trans is an FMVB 47re DPC triple disc converter and some other goodies to help put some power to the rear tires. It has AutoMeter gauges to keep tabs on everything. 

Carroll grew up on the family farm in Glenford, OH, but now lives near Jackson, OH.
