Lol.

On a side note, I want to get it on a dyno this spring/summer and see what it will do.

I'm betting it probably in the 575-590hp at the wheel mark. The tuning company claims to see an average on stock motor and stock pump (cp4) of 530-550 to the wheels.

I know the cp3 has more potential and the motor can breath now so I definitely think it will be in the 575-590 range. Torque is probably pushing 1000-1100 I'd imagine. But I'd like actual numbers to back up my thinking lol.

Makes me want to drive one that’s tuned like this. The l5p that I drove doesn’t sound anything like what you describe

The stock tuning leaves a bit to be desired. The dead pedal is pretty bad stock.

The L5Ps are nasty once they are unleashed. But in stock form, they are tuned for emissions. Same with pretty much all modern diesels. They are robbed of their potential to make them compliant with nearly impossible standards.

Got the fluid changed in the rear diff and transfer case.

I messed up and didn't order enough gear lube. I was thinking I was doing it a 1500 so I only ordered 5 quarts. Didn't phase me at the time I ordered I'd need more.

So I need to pick up another quart to go the front diff needless to say.

But it appears the previous owner took care of the truck as far as maintenance goes. The fluid in the rear diff had definitely been changed before. Just the normal little bit of metallic particles on the magnet and fluid wasnt too dark or burnt smelling.

Transfer case definitely hadn't been changed yet. But fluid was still nice and cherry red. Again, just normal amount of metal on the magnet I'd expect for the first change of a transfer case.

All that's left is the front diff and trans.

Will be going with some allison transynd for the transmission and an allison spin on filter. We sell it at work so it's easy and I know itll give the best results.

Finally decided to get a coat of the coating I bought a while back.

First I washed the truck with chemical guys clean slate soap to remove any old products that may be on the truck.

My plan was to clay the truck, but after doing a few areas, I wasnt seeing anything coming up so I didn't bother to do the whole truck.

The hydroslick went on super easy and came off easy as well. I also found that a white vehicle is harder to apply product to in my opinion. It's much harder to see where you have applied it to and where didmt get any. So I went over each panel twice to make sure I had full coverage.

Final result is, I'm pleased with it. Leaves a nice slick shine and feels glassy smooth. We will see how the hydrophobic part if it holds up given we are supposed to get rain tomorrow.

Also really wanting to get some nicer wheels and tires on the truck lol. ImageImage

coating looks badass!! I actually like those rims, but with a different offset/back spacing would be cool to stick out just a little... I will keep my rims for awhile.

Had some pop up in a group the other day and I almost sent them to you. Was some hostile rage I believe in the PA Area. But we’re 22s

I do like these wheels. But unfortunately the chrome is beginning to flake on some areas, mainly just on the inside barrels where the wheel weights were.

And that kind of thing just bugs me to no end lol.

I wouldnt be completely against a 22" wheel, but only if the price was so good I couldn't pass it up Haha.

They weren’t a deal that was worth it.. 3600 for wheels and 33x12.5 ridge grapplers.

Am curious to see how that product works out.
