well first im thinking about replacing the headers, but i know i wanna get that pencil thin exhaust pipe replaced with something that will let the motor breath a lil better lol

but idk yet honestly, ive always wanted one since i was younger, i just loved the 1st gen then the R/T came out and i was like i will own you one day... 10 years later here i am :p

i think i wanna do a small lift like 2 or 3 in nothing crazy but just enough to have a lil fun if i wanted, i like the stock rims so maybe if i do the lift, ill put some 33 on there if thats doable with the stock rims.. other than that, im content with the way it is so far

i would like a lil more power out of it eventually but right now im just gonna catch up on some maintenance, replace some suspension parts and get it ready for a trip from cali to oregon to bama :)

I'd keep those head lights, but ditch the euro chrome tails.

Other than that, it looks great. I'd love to have those front seats in my Dakota R/T.

Yea I went to switch them out earlier but the adapter for bulbs won't screw into the oem tails.... but I def don't want them on there any longer than I have to lol

Edit: I realized that the yellow things in the back of the lights were actually where the bulbs connect haha so they're now back to oem tails :)

Naw, it's not some scam thing like that.

You plug it into the OBD port,push a few buttons,follow onscreen directions and tada, you are now performance tuned.

What are we talking performance gains? And how much do those go for?

Edit: just looked on jegs, it says plus 47 horsepower and plus 59 foot pounds of torque that almost seems to good to be true, does this thing really actually working that well? :)

I bought this one for 320, but I'm selling it on here for 280 or best offer.

I noticed a decent pick up in low end torque, and gas mileage.. Before, my truck would only get 15 on the highway at 70mph, now it get's about 17.3 to 17.5.It has several different tunes to chose from.. it has a Economy tune for mpg alone, then it has 87 performance and 91 performance. I keep it on 91 performance and run 93 octane fuel all the time. Picked up the most power and mpg with the 91 tune. It's paid for itself by now with all the road trips i go on.

Well if you still have it when I say move over to Alabama then I will pick it up but as of right now all the money I have is going towards my drive across country and I kind of need to conserve that lol
