Picking up 2005 Hemi Wed. some ??? Please

Hi everyone Im glad I found this site! I am picking up a 05 slt 1500 with 20" rims. Was this a Big Horn package with these tires? Also theres a chrome bar on both sides of the bed & chrome taillight covers also. Standard? Do the hemis have 345 hp, 355 gears? Anything right from the jump I should do (k&N,chip?) Thanks for any advise. I will post pics next week. The truck is black with 58,000 miles.

Mine is an '04 sport, it came with 20" wheels. As far as tuners and CAI's go if I had to do it over again I'd have gotten a vararam intake. I'd keep my Diablo.

Welcome aboard plumpa15239 - we're glad you found us! Not sure if you have the "Big Horn" package... the prior owner may have taken the tailgate badge off. The package really only consisted of 20" chrome-clad wheels, "Big Horn" badging, and 3.92 gears.

The Hemi under that hood has 345 HP

Most folks' first mods are CAI, cat-back exhaust, and a programmer from either Superchips or Diablo.

plumpa15239,

with MrHemi. The tuner will depend on your long term plans for your truck. If you plan on headers, cam,...any major engine mod then Diablo or SCT may be your best bet as they offer custom tunes. If no major engine mods are in your future then Superchips may be your better choice as Superchips will be releasing the new trans options this Spring. This will give you the ability to change your shift points and torque management for all 5 gears. Diablo has trans options already but only for gears 1-3 - Diablo may have 4 & 5 support down the road but I don't know.
