Traded my dad his semi running 2003 dodge ram 1500 QC 5.7L for a water heater+install. he is disabled now and cant drive, im tired of being in a car. time to get back in to a truck, got i miss my 02 dakota qc 4.7L. Any way, i figured as much that the lifters were the problem since cyl #3 was the code the PCM was giving. could have been lifter but who knows at this point. called around a few places about doing a lifter and cam/liter replacement. got one place to call me back but they wanted to rebuild the whole engine and said they would do it for 8k. i went to jasper as a suggestion from my neighbor couldnt beat the price pluse the core money back. found a shop that would swap it in for 1.6k and hopefully by the end of the week i get it back. things that got replaced besides the engine, new intake manifold to keep the 3yr/100k warranty from jasper(590 ish with tax from the dealer). got a new AFE air intake, it had some cheap ebay looking intake and dealer wanted the same price as the AFE intake. got new headlights/tail lights/ 3rd brake light. nothing fancy on the lights all bulb based no leds except the 3rd brake light. want something i could just replace a bulb and be on my way. seen to many led lights that look funny because one row quit working. things that needs fixing: driver side vertical motor refresh the front/rear suspension (suggestions for better shocks ie better handling) also thinking about sway bars and strut brace if i can find one. new ac compressor or redo all the lines etc (makes some kind of metal on metal noise ever so often when idling, goes away after you turn the ac off) wish list: possibly shorty headers with new exhaust, high flow cat, borla or magnaflow muffler/turbo muffler. sound system upgrade, just minor new basic head unit, possible amp, infinity or kicker speakers. while doing the sound system/while doing the seat fix at same time, add sound insulation to the whole cab and doors. install/setup rear view camera security system with remote start. the if i can make it happen later item, 6.4l stoker setup for low to mid range torque.
