dream came true..

Hey guys, just would like to introduce myself.

John Huber, live in GA, medically retiered army Sargent, now I am a owner operator truck driver.

When I was younger, my dream truck was a 250 King ranch. back then it was with a V10, but over time it gre to the diesel, well last year I purchased a 11 Ram 2500 Laramie and it was fun but it wasnt all there, Loved the cummins but the rest of the truck had issues. Well last week i had the oportunity to get a 12 King Ranch.

I love the truck, great ride, so far got 540+miles on it.

My mod list is as follows:
tint windows, bigger tires (when these die), activate my H&S Black Maxx, egr block, dpf/urea delete with dual 4" pipes, high idle, fog light w/high, and maybe a couple of other things later.

thanks guys in advance for all the help

Welcome and thank you for your service. You weren't stationed at FT Stewart by any chance were you? My buddy was stationed there (MP by the name Glasgow). Visited him a couple times before he got out in June. Savannah's a beautiful place!
