    Magnum v10
    1998 Dodge Ram 2500 v10 4x4 w/ Plow

    The truck was originally going to be a 7" lift with 38s but decided thats a little much and have gone with 35s and a 3." I plan on restoring it to rust free then building up the motor. Already have a crower cam for it and the crank redone.

    Suspension
    99 HD T style conversion tie rods
    Tufftruck 2.5" Coil Springs - 5000lb rating (snow plow so 2")
    1" Coil spacers
    0-3" Dodge off Road HD Track bar
    BENT Dodge off road Control Arms (more tire room)
    Fox 2.0 IFP Shocks
    Sway bar currently removed

    Axles
    5.13 Gears
    Detroit Locker rear
    4x4 posilok cable actuator front
    Dynatrac Balljoints
    Timken hubs front

    Performance
    SCT Tuner
    Exhaust 2.5" duals, x pipe/borla
    JBA Headers

    In process of building a spare v10 will post it's build later. Been focusing on the truck more.

    5.13s to only run 35s? With that torquey engine? Nahhhh 4.56 would be more than plenty

    As the post said, it was originally for 38s. Yes I do have my torque available at lower rpms! Not the horses though.


    Still reasonable power band.

    I've been very busy but Got all new brake lines on it and removed ABS box and put proportion valve for rear brakes. The speedo problem ended up being a bad wire that was discovered doing brake lines. Got a mirror for passenger side and got a new fender too for passenger. In search of driver fender currently and need to drill some bolts out that broke off taking sway bar off

    Sounds great but I need to remove the air pump that was originally for the cat.. lol. Nothing like pumping fresh air into exhaust for emissions.. anyway it whines and sounds awful seen some write ups on guttint it but truck sounds like a viper. I love it. Pushing 3k rpm around 70 with stock tires.
