Yes. I did it for a short period of time until I got my CTS2.

It should fit in the garage if you remove the yellow ball cap off the roof. Congratulations.

Good looking truck / mall crawler. How will those big-xxx tires handle snow? [emoticon]

Wow... Got rid of the 5.9 for the mall crawler! Sounds like a tranny rebuild is in your future [emoticon].

Congrats on the new rig

If you want big tires and noise, why not just buy a dump truck.

She's so pumped, she went out and detailed the whole thing yesterday!

You know...them POS Dodge trannys! LOL
Hope your wrong, haha. Trans has been tuned as well since day 1 and the increase in line pressure really helps them. Besides the only thing this truck has hauled is @ss. I'm pretty confident in it.

I've never driven a tuned 68rfe truck before. It's not the mushy shifting, too early, dead pedal, why were you trying to go into THAT gear trans that they are stock. I actually like it.
I haven't quite gotten used to the exhaust brake coming on when it want's to and not when I want it to 100% though. But it hits really hard in full EB/tow haul going down a hill. More retarding power then the BD brake on the 07 it feels like.

I have tried to air shift and air clutch a couple times though....
