I've been lurking this forum for a while now and I have found a lot of information, so ill start by saying thanks to all of you for all the help.

I bought my 2016 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Limited (it really says that on the build sheet) from St George Utah before the Chip shortage started, I wont say the deal that I got on it but I got a pretty darn good deal. My previous vehicle was a 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland with the 3.0 Ecodiesel as well, so I knew I loved the engine before buying the truck. I bought it with the intent to tastefully modify it for longevity, and had a budget that I quickly blew through mostly because of availability of parts and my lack of patience. Yes I did all the work myself, Yes I followed instructions properly and used a calibrated torque wrench, and yes there were a lot of curse words during some of the process. So a ill start listing my build. and post some photos below.

I want to ad more to this list, and I fully intend to. If anyone has questions about anything I've done feel free to ask. I've ran into some minor issues while having this truck but nothing to really gripe about, and this forum has helped me a lot with solving the issues.
