2005 Dodge Cummins: Tow Rig/ DD/ Do-all truck


So I know it's not a Chevy or a trail truck but everyone around here seems to enjoy a good build thread and I figured this would spice things up a bit.

So I sold my beloved '94 12 valve Dodge that has treated me VERY well for over three years. Some of you may remember I bought it for $2,200 and it was BEAT. I daily drove it from the day I bought it and slowly fixed it up over the years. The AC blasted cold and it got stupid good mileage but I was starting to want something a little more plush.
So what I did was keep driving the good old 12 valve and saved. Eventually I had enough to go shopping for a 3rd gen. I was reluctant to go to an auto but being it's my DD I figured if I got a good deal on a 3rd gen with an auto I could justify building up the trans someday.

So enough with the talk, I know everyone just likes pictures.

I found this 2005 quad cab short bed locally and picked it up for what I consider a good deal. The lift and wheels/tires were all basically brand new.
5" lift with 35/12.50-17" Toyo MT's.

After going back and forth about it I thought it would be nice to hop on the build thread bandwagon to be able to keep track of where the truck started, where it's at now and more importantly where it's headed. I bought this truck when I was 15, I didn't even have my permit at the time so my dad had to drive it home for me. :D It was clean, rust free and ran well but had an 8" superlift, 39.5" baja claws and 10 bolts with 3.08's! If I only knew then what I know now. :doah:
So I've been telling myself I need to start a build thread on my k10 and catch up on the last couple years but I haven't had the time to do it yet. So for this build I'll start one right off the bat and try to keep it as updated as possible. With the help of a friend I scored this '94 regular cab long bed (with service box) 2500 dodge with a 12v cummins, 5 speed and it's even a 4x4 for only $2,200! Heck it even has a set of new Toyo tires on it! So the plan is to fix the sheetmetal, get it...
