August 2013 Truck of the Month goes to....

Sorry for the delay in the announcement.....

The August 2013 Truck of the Month goes to... 04hemisportedt - Congrats!!

Here's a pic of 04hemisportedt's truck!

Here is 04hemisportedt's write up this month......

I've been in a mopar family my whole life. My uncle has driven a mopar since his first demon, and currently owns a '79 Lil Red Express all original; my father has driven a dodge since I was born; and I've driven a Ram truck since my 16th birthday...heck, I had a Dodge Ram pinewood derby car while in Cub Scouts. My first truck ('98 Ram Sport short bed) was totaled in an accidents after I was t-boned when someone ran a stop sign. Soon after that, I received my first, and only (so far), hemi '04 Ram 1500 Hemi Sport Edition. I've been turning heads in the area with it ever since. My goal from the beginning was to have a truck that was better on gas, and (for the most part) had economical additions that anyone can do. I've done all the work myself, less the rhino lining and truck cover, and have seen 22 mpg's. (26 mpg depending on variable conditions) My most meaningful modifications are my exhaust (SI-SI AT3030XL...really turns heads!), my DIY $14 dipped rims, my front grill badges, and my spike lug nut covers. My next project is a full front tilt hood kit, completely bolt-on. All in all, my first Dodge saved my life...I'll never drive another truck other than a Dodge.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about my truck and I, and good luck with your decision.

Thanks everyone! I've been debating on trying to get this badge under my name for a little while. Honestly, I thought you had to be nominated rather than self-nominating. Thanks for all the comments.
