Diesel Newby From Central NY

Recommended Posts

Good morning all,

 

Name's Tim and I am relatively new to diesels.  Been a member of forum for some time but thought I would post an introduction.  

 

I have a 1999 Dodge 2500 24v Cummins with 169k.  I bought the truck from my father in law and it was owned by my wife's grandfather before that.  My father in law bought it with intentions on flipping it, but I needed a camper hauler so I bought it for $2500 as is.  Truck was in rough shape when I bought it.  I did a full body swap/semi restoration.  Truck runs like a top.  Current mods are BHAF, Quadzilla Xzt+, Airdog 165-4G, full set of Isspro gauges (EGT, Trans Temp, Boost, Fuel Pressure).  Future plans are to rebuild the HX35 and maybe a set of 40-75hp injectors.  Look forward to learning more about the 24v Cummins.

 

Tim

Welcome. Looks much without the rust. Where did you get the Cummins emblem for the grill?

It looks like you did a nice job on it. Welcome to the forum. I still think these seconds are better looking than any other generation out there.

Jag1 - Thank you!  Can'twait to drive it once again.  I won't drive it in NY winter if I don't have to.  Don't want to see body rust out like other was.  I picked up a donor truck from VA to do swap.  

Not sure now accurate the OBDLink is but I set it up according to forum and read the attached #s.  Red arrows are maximums read. ~300hp and ~700ftlbs

I would do the same thing out there.... have a winter rust rig and then also have a cream puff summer rig. That's the way to do it. I know it's best to run the dormant rig once a week using a high idle kit and a battery minder.

The Xzt+ has a high idle feature that kicks in once truck idles for 30secs.  I start truck 1-3x a week and let it warm up to operating temps.  I have driven it on "nice" days and washed salt off it.  I am going to undercoat underside of body this summer just incase I need 4x4 next winter.
