I took my lights off the hood and put them on the corners of the front bumper. It looks better but they don't work quite as good tho. :thumbsdown:

I installed an new set of +60HP injectors in my Dodge a couple weekends ago. It sucked a** having to drop that much money but my truck runs a much better now.

Do ya ever worry about the tranny holding up to extra power when towing.  I have a Smarty J?r. on my 2008 Dodge with a 40, 60, &100 hp setting and I'm real leary of the 100 hp useage.

I have a 6 speed manual that got a new stock clutch right before I bought it. With just the injectors I am not worried about it. With my Smarty Sr. I just got my programmer back so tomorrow will be the first test with it.

Before the injectors I ran 90 and 160 horse without a problem, but that was all unloaded. Unloaded I would not be too worried about your 100 hp setting especially if you can adjust the torque management setting. The torque management settings will control how hard it fuels down low and how hard it is pulling while it shifts.

I expect when I am loaded I won't be able to run much more than the 30 or 60 hp setting because of the clutch. I also expect that any more fuel than this will put my EGT's too high with a stock turbo. With either of these tunes I should be at or above 400hp at the flywheel.

My old truck was a 98.5 with a Smarty. I would only slip the clutch when I was trying to pull hard loaded off the line. In 3 and 4th gear if I tried to juice it up to highway speed I could slip the clutch. After I did the Southbend clutch it never slipped again even on 9. That was only about 300hp/600lbs.

I mounted up my new tires on the beadlocks this weekend and trimmed the front bumper. Looks like I will need to trim the rear quarters a little more also.

Fixed my fire damaged wiring and got all my lights working again.  Tomorrow install my new shifter and maybe get to my crawltunes.com speaker cans.  need to pickup a cheap amp to run my speakers, walmart has one for $60 bucks that should work perfect.
just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will

yeah, I know what gear i'm always in and its easy to find my next one.  sometimes difficult to unlock my rear for a front dig but when i'm bound up its just going to happen. 
I need to adjust it just a tad.  I don't have the park lockout by about 1/16 of an inch but it stays in park.  same with 1st gear
