Nine8SST's 1998 Dodge Ram SS/T


Recommended Posts

Thought I would start a build log now that I'm actually making some progress. This is actually a rebuild, heavily influenced by all the knowledge I have gained here at SMD. I'm still on crutches so the process may be a bit slow, but I will continue to upgrade this page as I get more done. Anyway...less talking and more pictures.

Oh shit man, hate to hear that. I know living in a community plagued by DUI's how it feels to have to kick a door in when someone comes over on you. I can't imagine actually being hit.

I used pipe insulation in the dash so i dont get any annoying rattles.

My truck is an automatic, so I took advantage of where the clutch cable goes through in a manual!
