Default dodge ram to durango lets talk

currenly i have a dodge ram single cab with the 5.9, im buying a 2000 dodge durango with the 5.9, it has 117k ilkes and buying it for 3500. its all stock and maintained by older adults . Ive modded my truck some but getting ready to sell being a single cab and growing family . i know im i wanna swap my fastman and 1.7 hs . my truck has the airgap but i think it would be a serious pita to swap them both . so im selling my truck with the longtube headers and the airgap .

also i will be setting my sct back to stock on my truck and sending it into sean to write tunes for the durango. will i see some decent gains with the sct,fastman,1.7 hs ? i dont plan on modding the durango as much as i did my truck as itsd gonna be my family vehical. but i test drove it it seemed to havwe more get up than my truck !

it was s quite and nice though i liked it and loking forward to being on the durango board !














heres my truck for sale http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/cto/4089414509.html

Welcome aboard! I too went from an 01 Ram to an 02 Durango due to a growing family. Good luck with your sell!

For everyday grocery getting, ect. the 3.55 gearing is OK but, if you plan on doing any kind of towing the 3.92 gearing is much better.

As for the other stuff i can't help ya as i felt my truck was fine for me stock so i never bothered.

Ok, so your up on the north side of the city. I never went up there much other than to visit cousins that used to live near ross park.

I have 3.55 gears in mine, and it's alright for general everyday use. I still get decent mpg (about 13 avg around town and anywhere from 16-19 on the highway depending on conditions.) I do still tow stuff with mine, but nothing that heavy.

Looks nice but Odds are you're going to need to throw another $1k into the front end.

I think modding (power) the durango is kinda pointless.. but each to their own. Nice thing is you be able to swap in the AWD TC out of an R/T.

Why a grand? Unless the control arms are actually damaged all you need to do is replace the bushings (~$100 for polyurethane ones), ball joints (~$200 for good ones), and tie rod ends (~$50), and you've got an as good as new front suspension.
