Default Upgrading my truck


Wanting to get a bigger truck to haul my rig.. I feel like it struggles more than I'd like..

Suggestions?

You need to lower the rear about a foot and lift the front by the same, then add 12" dia stacks in the bed

Ads a tuner, bigger exhaust and more aggressive tires.

You need to put not one, but TWO giant Cummins stickers on your back windows. One sticker will add more torque to the left wheels, the other sticker will add more torque to the right wheels. DO NOT put just one sticker. You'll will start to drive in circles.

On the top put another that says "real trucks dont have spark plugs". That's 50+ hp right there.

you should upgrade your mirrors too if you need to have them out to see around that huge trailer.

people don't usually install transfer tanks just for looks. i'd bet this is a construction truck of some sort and more of a case of ''use what ya got''

If that's the case I'd hate to see him try to load a 36 Contender like this

No way. His heli yacht runs on Avgas and he has to transport it himself.
Oh, the truck nuts plug into the transom drain.

The truck is fine (for a Dodge)..........you just need to add a second axle to the trailer to be safe!
