LDB! Youll find tons of pages of info regarding just about anything ya need to know. For your programmer, Superchips Flashpaq is gonna be your best bet.

Unless your truck came with a complete service history, I'd replace all fluids, plugs, and PCV valve. Take a look at the TB and clean if necessary.

LDB...your best buy is a Superchips tuner. It may be a plug and play, but it's the best one on the market and works well for towing. It only takes a few minutes to change form the differrent settings, IMHO..if you ever want to change them.

Hello all. I am very new to the Hemi scene. I recently purchased an 05 4 door with a hemi. Only had 17,000 miles on it when I signed my life away 3 weeks ago. Leather, sunroof, 20's. Love this truck. What are the typical gains from Superchips ? Alot of great info on this site. Thanks to the creator !

What's up guys.
I've got a 2004 HEMI Quad Cab 2X4 Laramie that's Flame Red. I've had the truck for almost a year and a half and I've finally got a little cash to throw around for mods. I looked around and found this site to be the most informative for any questions I would ever have. I'm not looking to go insane with this truck, just a nice, street truck that's got a clean look and has a good amount of go. Look forward to talking with you guys!
