Ceramic is absolutely cooler than regular tint.

I was too cheap to pay for it on my rust bucket, but it is good stuff.

Windshield tint period is a huge improvement.

I bought some Lizardskin and it was OK. Poured/painted it on the inside of my hood of my CR. I think Dynamat and the other products are a little better as far as sound deadening, but that's just me.

I was thinking about doing both, Lizard Skin inside the doors, interior side of the roof, and bottom side of the cab. Then RAAMmat on the interior side of the floor, back wall, and behind the door panels.

Really using the LS more for the heat blocking abilities.

Just picked up a gated 363sxe. Thinking about using it with a 475 for a set of compounds on this truck.

I think it would work excellent with a 92mm turbine S475.

That is just a bit of an oddball turbo, maybe just to me. I have a buddy that has a GT4202, billet S475/96/1.32, S480/96/1.32, and a billet S472/96/1.32 he is willing to sell. I would prefer to use one of those, I think the GT4202 would be pretty cool.

Of the 4 turbos you listed there, I would absolutely run the GT4202 in your situation.

I dont know much about the Garret turbos, and im not a huge fan of it being water cooled. Seems like something else to leak.

The GT42 turbine is an excellent turbine. It is measures very close to the same size as the small S400 turbine, but will absolutely kill the small S400 turbine on power output. There is a reason it is probably the most popular turbine in the 3Ē tractor classes.

I'd like to hear some more about this. Did you use the entire dash out of the 12 in the 08? or were you able to keep the HVAC units and such from the 08. How is the wiring side going to work out? did you pull the whole truck side harness out and going to have to mesh it with the 08 truck side?

I have an 03 that has they typical Dodge cracked dash. The entire dash has to come out to replace this, so if I can come across something like this I might try it out! Do you know if seats and door panels will work off of a 4th gen on a 3rd gen?

I swapped everything from the 2012, all wiring, hvac box and dash. Everything bolts up except for the door wiring. They are different and I am going to have to make all that work. The seats will bolt in as well, but I dont think the panels will, I dont have any to try. Either way, the handles are in different spots and the whole door is very different on how they mount.

Bodie,

I have been following along on the race truck build, but what happened to this?!

It is sitting in the field beside my broken Jetta.

It is a time/money thing right now, I sent the crank, block, and head off to the machine shop and it turned out the crank was bad, so I need a crank for this build to continue. That pretty much put this project to a halt, the race truck needs an engine rebuilt, the 03 needs an engine, trans, and t-case, the Jetta needs the new engine installed, and I am helping one buddy build his drag truck for next year.

Truth is I have considered just scrapping this project and just buying a 4th gen with Aisin trans... I am not 100% though, its just easy to go buy a new truck and focus on everything else, but I really like having something unique and being debt free, so who knows.

I am still actively moving forward with this project, this weekend I will swap in the dually rear axle and hopefully bring the frame up to start cleaning it up for the LB conversion. It will take about $20k to get this truck up and going the way I want, so I just save then attack, then save... and attack when I can.

Lawn care and vehicle maintenance my friend. Without those, what would man do?

Iíll admit, itís nice to have all vehicles running and driving, even if they are slow. But itís a damn full time job. This one needs brakes, that one has charging issues, this one leaks trans fluid, that one needs ball joints, hers needs struts, mower needs blades and oil change, mix up 2 stroke fuel, fix carb on chain saw.
If you get far enough behind, youíll eventually be ahead again.

Iím not sure how you do it Bodie.

This is why I am ok with a payment. Outside of swapping out winter tires and changing the oil on my pickup, I haven't wrenched on a vehicle of my own in over a year.
