Now there is a project you need to do a write-up on. Being able to do that for our trucks would extend their longevity by a good bit.

That's going to be a job. It has so many sensors reading so many engine and chassis dynamics, I imagine it will take some creative electronic work.

Challengers are great cars but wouldn't survive 1 trip on my 1 1/2 mile driveway. Washes and rocks would rip the radiator or oilpan out. I really wanted an SRT-8 300 but this is such a nice truck, I'm not missing anything.

It will be plug and play. I am working with a company that is making a control module. Only 3 wires have to be hooked up. 5 if you want the idiot lights to work. Only downside is you have to program your torque curve to the transmission as it uses that to shift. Total cost is not up yet I'll post in my restoration thread with the progress

Well, I got my 98 stuck in our reservoir this morning. Wheels sunk to the axle, front and rear and high centered. I should have taken pictures. The 3.6L pulled me out without breaking a sweat. I was 8' down a 45 bank, on loose silt and sand with snotty clay under that. I think the V6 will suffice.
