Truck of the Month June 2013

The June 2013 Truck of the Month goes to... 69rrbruce - Congrats!!

Here's a pic of 69rrbruce 's truck!



Something new this month. Here is the write up submitted.

I would like you to consider my 1998 Dakota RC for the HEMI Truck Club's TOTM. You might ask how can a Dakota be TOTM on this forum? Well for starters this one does have a HEMI, yes that's right, I swapped out the high mileage V6 w/ 5sp trans for a 5.7 HEMI w/ a 545rfe auto trans. The 8.25 open rear was replaced w/ a 9.25 and Powertrax locker. I removed all the rusted metal, welded in new metal, shaved the hood and fender emblems and tailgate handle, added a custom roll pan, then sanded, primed and painted the entire truck BC/CC black. The suspension received drop springs, hangers and shocks. The engine received 6.1 cam, springs and rods and dual COP coils. The LX intake manifold was smoothed and painted BC/CC black.
