What's up!! Got an invitation from Dodge Cowboy to join your forum so here I am. Been a Mopar fan for many years and with me, it's MOPAR or NO CAR!!

I bought a new 2001 Dodge Dakota R/T in November 2000 and started modifiying everything I could get my hands on shortly thereafter. 9 years later and God only knows how much money I've spent, this is what it looks like today. Hope you approve!

Thank you Sir for the welcome.

That is a custom-made one-off hoodliner made from mirror polished stainless steel. It's held on with 4 stainless steel screws and rubberized windshield sealant between the hoodliner and the hood cross braces. Been there for 3 years and hasn't moved.

You would not believe all the money I've spent and the things I've done to this truck. The best way to tell you is for you to go to www.cardomain.com/ride/3270605 and check out page 2 for my list of mods. Thank God I'm about finished with the modifiying.

Thanks to everyone for the great welcome and awesome compliments.

It's taken a lot of years to get it to this point, but the good thing is that I'm almost finished, if there is such a thing. From here on out, it's just going to be maintenance and let it go at that. I've reached the point where I believe the look of the truck is 'balanced' and if I go much further, I'll be going 'overboard' and I'm not going there.

In the past 5 years that I've been showing, I've accumilated close to 60 throphies and plaques with the OLD WHITE TRUCK. I've met some awesome people, made some great friends and have seen a lot of country I normally wouldn't have seen. My truck has made 2 magazines, Mopar Muscle-March '09 and Sport Truck-June '09.

Thanks again for the great Welcome!
