Dodge is revising a lot of it's manual tranny recommendations. First time I called for the jeep(years ago) it was some silly expensive stuff only they carried. Called again last week and they said atf4 now.
Power mirrors are a lifesaver at ATM's!

What are your plans with this regarding upgrades and mods?

I'm sure you're going to add a light bar or two :)

a couple things i dont like with the flat bed mounting / wiring

needs LED white back up / plate lights
forward trailer pigtail is zipscrewed mounted and looks a little hack
pin wood between bed and frame should be swapped for PT
going to add some tool boxes, probably just buy two new matching ones

first and for most needs seat covers.  the truck is high and i really have to roll out of it.  They wont last long with my filth. 

a 50" bar will end up on the top of the headake rack, maybe a 10" or 24" facing back also


havent decided yet if it has as much ass as my 24valve.  its hard to tell with the 4.44 gears

Wouldn't a 50" bar on the headache rack be ineffective because the cab roof would block some of the light's path?  (can't really tell in the pic how high the headache rack is above the cab)

I wouldn't run atf4 in the trans. It's a g56, right?

I would (and have, myself) swap that out to Gorilla Juice. Seems to help keep em alive, looks like atf with Lucas in it. Could probably throw a quart of Lucas in there and I wouldn't feel too bad about it. Not sure what sort of trans warranty you're looking at, probably best to run through that with factory suggested fill just in case something happens. Seems a shame to give it the extra wear in the  mean time but I guess it is what it is.
