Just traded the old faithful 07 Mega Cab and camper (03 Arctic Fox) for this “little” gem!
The bro dozer wheels gotta go. But dang it drives nice. Even with the Cracker Jack box 6” lift.
Truck is a 2016 2500. EFI Live engine and trans tuning. And thousands in other extras.
Runs beautifully and sounds even better. No idea how hard it pulls, haven’t been able to run it on dry pavement yet. Didn’t rip of any 4x4 runs.
But it’s very responsive, no dead pedal and the 68 shifts like it’s supposed to. So much nicer than the factory neutered trucks.
No way in heck this thing will haul a TC. Guess a TT is in the future if we keep her!

Young gentleman who owned it had since new. No hot tunes, great condition and maintenance.
Love the headache rack but it needs to go to try to get it in the garage, maybe, lol. Idk if it will fit thru a 7’ tall door even if I drop it down to 35s.
Regardless, it’s a fun truck. And over 100k less miles than the 07.
Wife loves it, more than me, which is good since it’s her new DD.

Best part is it sounds and smells pretty much like a 5.9!

Awesome, congrats!! The only modification I think it needs is the blacked out projector headlights that came stock with the Laramie blacked out trucks. They sell some really good aftermarket ones too for less than $400.

Did they give you the EFI Autocal as well? You will need it if you every switch tunes. At the very least I would find out who did the tuning. They will have your files for the VIN in their system and can just put them on a new Autocal that you will have to buy.

Congratulations, that’s a nice looking truck. It has more lift than I’d want but the truck is big enough to pull it off without looking silly. I haven’t even put bigger tires on mine because it barely fits in the garage as it is, No way that thing would go in.

Thanks! It’s a good running truck.
Thought about Laramie blackouts but it’s got some really good LEDs in it now. Need to re aim them though. Too high right now.

Yes I have the Autocal and the Bullydog GT tuner for unlock and the name of the tuner company. And switch.
Question if you know.
Can I plug in the Bullydog and just use it as a monitor with the EFI tunes?

Thanks. Not my first choice for a real truck either. But the deal was right and it looks cool! If we get sick of the monster truck it’ll get sold. It was a random deal that made sense financially. And being a deleted black Dodge that looks bad @ss just sealed the deal!
