Thanks guys. It's definitely nice seeing it painted after all that prep work.

I've got a set of '08 20s sittin here if you're interested, I'm in Bancroft. And AWESOME build by the way man. Keep up the good work!
Ya I'd be interested but it would probably be a couple months before I had the cash for them now. This swap has drained the bank account pretty much dry Lol Are they the chrome or painted ones?

No worries man, and they're the chrome ones.

wow, the finished pics look great!!
Is this truck going to be a weekend cruiser/show/toy or do you plan to drive it more daily? I know you have the 06 too, I'm just curious...

My jealous side hopes some dirt gets stuck in the paint.

My envious side says get this finished, so I can show my friends and live vicariously through you LOL
Lol I'm working on getting it done. Some more parts got dropped off today so I'm getting closer to having everything here. I'm busy the next 3 weekends though so might slow me down a bit.

Thanks!! Eventually it's going to be strictly a weekend cruiser. It'll still be more of a daily summer driver for now though (insurance on both trucks is just to expensive for now) and it already gets used as a bit of a show truck and as a toy. I've takin it to the mopar nationals in Ohio the last 2 years and a couple other small shows and cruise nights around me. Once I get the swap done I plan on trying to hit a couple more of the local cruise nights this summer.

And started mocking up the mount for my electric fans. Just have to get some sheet metal to start making the final piece now.

Haha ya I've still got a few excuses left but the big one is gone finally. I pulled part of the harness out of the box tonight and it looks like they did an awesome job with it looks damn near factory. Even found a free pen in there!! (Guess that's what you get when you spend a couple grand on wiring and a computer) :D



Been talking to a guy about ceramic coating my headers and they will be getting shipped out to get coated next week. My grandpa is also going to work on figuring out the gas pedal mount for me while I'm away this weekend. Once the mount is done I can start reassembling my engine bay while I wait for my headers.

Ya i know you'd think they could throw in a free shirt or hat or something at least :p and the PCM is the one thing I never got with my motor so I just bought a brand new one from Chris at Hotwire. They programmed it with the stock 05 Hemi programming and he told me it will still be able to be tuned using a diablo tuner (which I already have one of). Another cool thing I didn't know he could do but he also programmed the vin# from my truck into this PCM so the PCM vin# actually matches my trucks vin#!!
