2001 Dakota R/T

I bought my 2001 Dakota R/T off EBAY in 2004 for $7500 delivered.  It was box stock with 47K on the clock, and cosmetically perfect.  I've made many modifications to it including: relocated QA1 rear shocks, installed Calvert Racing Monoleaf springs and Caltracs, headers, a custom 3" exhaust, added a fuel cell and battery in the bed of the truck, 1.97 SHADY DELL (Ryan Johnson) Stage III porting on Magnum R/T heads, M1 4bbl EFI intake and changed out the 5 speed overdrive auto for a John Cope Racing TF 727 transmission with a 8" PTC 4000 stall.

I also gutted the interior, removed the AC/heater blower, and scraped off the sound deadener.

At the 2005 Mopar Fest, the truck won in the truck class and won best engine.  At the 2009 Mopar Fest, I placed 3 rd in the Race Vehicle class.
