60% of the LML engine parts are new. And like stated above, the frame/chassis is beefier along with steering, cv axles, ets. The new front end can hold more weight than the Dodge and just as much weight as the Ford now

Gonna take a little time to make this stuff. The engine is completely different so they have tom make new intakes and exhausts. Tuning is different due to new injectors and what not. Then there is the Urea stuff they have to find out how to get rid of and block the codes

I think its a great idea. There has always been an option from the factory to get dual alternators if Im not mistaken... Theyre good for people who like to add on a lot of electronics and stuff.

Oh and apparently Allison has stepped it up to handle the extra power. We will have to see how much over stock it will take
