• Derrick M.'s 2005 Dodge Dakota

I bought this truck locally in 2010. At first I planned on keeping it stock, but that all changed when I stumbled upon the idea of a Hemi swap.

After saving for a year, I found a 5.7 drivetrain, completely rebuilt it myself and installed it with the help of a great friend (Alex).

The project was completed in October 2017, and is driven daily. It’s a nice street truck, with a factory looking swap. It’s exactly what I envisioned.

The mods are: 5.7 hemi with custom grind cam, stall converter, exhaust, tune, cutouts.

Future mods: 4.56 gears, LSD 9.25 rear, disc brake conversion on rear, slicks, electric fan.
