Here is my 02 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab 4x4 HO Cummins Turbo Diesel 6spd the way it came when i bought it in July of 04. It had a FASS fuel system, banks ottomind tuner, banks 4" monster exhaust, banks turbo wastegate, banks gauges and a BD short shifter installed by the previous owner. It was nice but I couldn't leave it alone. Here is how it looked untouched.
About a month after I bought I had a mishap with a steel pole and forgetting the truck was in gear when i let off the clutch. This destroyed my front bumper and me being cheap and not wanting to pay alot for a cheap old stock bumper, I built my own out of heavy duty steel seen here
That Banks stuff that was there was nice, but didnt do enough for me so I slowly started adding things to make it stronger, faster, bigger, better looking, and louder. The truck also ran a best of 15.3@96 mph in the 1/4 mile. It dynoed 448hp/821tq with a turbo that was too big and laggy, I haven't dynoed with the new turbo yet, but I know its good enough to get me to 475hp/1,000tq.
Here is how it looks currently with the new tires and stacks
Current list of mods:
-4" exhaust to 5" chrome stacks
-Edge Comp adjustable 40-120hp fueling box
-Dyno-Mite Diesel Stage 4 150hp injectors
-TAD B1 Turbo
-FASS fuel pump with big line kit
-South Bend 385012cb Dual Disc clutch
-35" Pro-Comp X-treme All Terrains
-Sylvania Silverstar Headlights
-BD short shift kit
-Thuren Fab heavy duty track bar
-DSS steering stabilizer
-Autometer Phantom series Gauges-Boost, Pyro, Trans Temp, Fuel Pressure
-Train horn powered by On-Board Air compressor
A little comparison of the turbos I've used.

My future plans include:
-Mads Electronics Smarty Handheld ECM tuner
-Trade Edge Comp for a TST powermax fueling box
-4.5" Skyjacker lift
-Heavy Duty ladder bars to prevent axle hop
-ARP headstuds to prevent blowing the headgasket
Im starting to get involved in sled pulling, i just need the ladder bars and an adjustable hitch so i can start hooking to the sled and really using some of the power. I really can't wait to see what it will do!
Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
