Default New Guy From North Augusta, SC

Just bought a 2006 3500 Ram Mega Cab. Completly stock. Would love to make improvements in mileage and power (love power) along with a few toys. Came here to get advice from the pros (actual users) and see if I can find people in my area to meet and talk truck. This is my first diesel so I am completly new to this. Any suggestions on where to start?

Default Thanks guys!

Thanks for the advice. Been looking at all the stuff on the net since it has been snowing here (sort of uncommon) and can't really go anywhere. City does not have equipment to clear roads. Thought I could just get a programmer and go from there but I see that may not be the best first move. Snow is a neat event but I want to go play with my truck...

Snow is cold and makes it so I can't play with my truck!

Welcome to the diesel truck site. Just to let you know you can play in the snow with your truck if you can keep the other vehicles out of your way.

Just 8inches here and growing. sure is pretty. so be careful and enjoy!!!!

Heck my tires are nearly bald in the back and I'm running around in MN snow. Just have to pick the Hyundai's outta the tread occasionally.
