Default 2000 Black Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 5.9

So I got the truck in 2011 with 105k on it. I picked it up for $700 it was really rusty and the paint was all peeling off, and the PO had thrown the rear driveshaft. After I got it, I had a driveshaft made at the closest racecar fabrication place because I planned on doing a 408 stroker and didn't want to have to worry about it again. It wound up basically being my second vehicle through highschool and my first year of college. Then February 2013 came around and I spun out driving home in a blizzard. I went through a ditch and broke the bead on 2 tires. I towed it back to the shop and started to pull it apart the next day. Over the next two years it sat mostly and got driven only a handful of times as I removed the rust and installed new panels. I finally pained it fall of 2015 and put it back on the road. And since then I've been upgrading here and there as money allows. This is the only pic I can find of it since I lost my old laptop and as it sits now.

I started building my truck to be unique, not a monster off-road beast, not a race truck, and not an expedition rig. It's basically gonna be a rolling party. I picked up the roll bar on craigslist, traded my paintball gun for it, and mounted the waketower speakers. Then I got a s10 toolbox from a friend for $10, and started wiring in my amp and inverter. I picked up all the parts to put in a second battery to run everything in the bed. Just when I was picking up speed and it was starting to look like something, my transmission went out. So the truck has sat for the last two weeks while I formulated a plan. I went and bought a parts truck in ohio two days ago to do the 5 speed swap on my truck. If all goes according to plan and my parts actually ship when they're supposed to my truck will be a 5 speed and driving next Sunday. Oh and I know I already posted a picture of the beginnings of my half doors but I'm gonna throw one in here too
