Here is my 91 RC. I posted a pic or two a long while back, since then the MI winter took a bite out of the poor thing. But I think that was mostly due to the moisture held in by the numerous bird nests in the rockerpannels and rear quarters. I'm takin care of the rust and have done quite a bit to her since I got it.

360 TBI, makeshift 360 air cleaner, K&N air filter, accell super coil, accell 8mm super stock wires, accell cap and rotor, acdelco splitfires, no smog, homemade egr restrictor plate





2.25" true dual exhaust, zflow mufflers (flowmaster clones, got them because the muffler shop could warrantee them)





Just a cool shot.

Here is a couple more pictures. I know Bill- wanted to see how the duals were set up.

This shot is from the rear


This shot is from the front


Here she is sitting level all around


Just another shot


Here is what most of the rear lift is from ( this little project was fun ::) )


Nice shiney air cleaner with a big K&N


My stereo that costs as much as I paid for the truck, it has a hard drive in it ;D


Here is my Hyfonics amp and Pioneer IMPP sub


I just got a remote start/keyless entry installed yesterday


And because I envy all the rice burners out there

Actuall, I'm thinkin about putting some 2" lift shackles front and lookin for a set of 2" lift shackles for the back and stuffing 35" meats on it. Speaking of which, what is a good ratio for a tire that tall? I'm thinking 4.10 would be on the low end of the scale and 4.56 might be just right for a daily driver.

Do you have an Over drive? If so I would go 4.56 (Atleast) I have 32s on my 01 and Im on 4.10s, With 33s I go 4.56 and with 35s I would go 4.88 but on Chrysler 9.1/4 you cant go past 4.56, So Id go 4.56, I wish I would have stayed with 33s instead of going to 35s, but you might like it. Even If you dont have OD I would go 4.56. Soon I will be back to 33s with 4.10s on my RC

Yeah, I have overdrive. That's kinda weird that 4.56 is as high as you can go with the 9 1/4. I guess you learn something new everyday. I have a set of 33" tires on my s10 blazer and with it parked next to the dodge, they look like they would be too small for it. Plus I like how all the other trucks on this site look with 35's. ;D

SHIT MAN LOL, I liked the way 38s Looked from pictures I saw online.... (I almost got them) But in my opinion the 33s look perfect. Plus the RC is faster, has better breaking and the undercarriage doesnt wear as fast. (Remember, The bigger you go, the less efficient everything is. Speed Mileage, Handling... Yea you gotta change the rear to go to a lower Gear, I will eventually be running my 01 with 4.56 (using stock tires).

"undercarriage doesnt wear as fast."

How does the size of a tire wear the undercarriage any more or any less then stock size tires? I guess they can fling up a lot more crap but I wash the ol gall weekly, trying to keep the corrosion to a minimum on her.

As for braking, handleing, top speed, and the speedo, I'm not too worried about those. With the right gearing you can get the speedo close to right. The truck was never too good at the twisties when I bought it. I think I got me heart set on the rear disc brake conversion. And as for top speed, she's not a racecar.

I think 35's are perfect for this style of truck, not too big to drive daily, and not small enough to make me think "eh, I'll go around the mud".

I mean entire chassis, Front end and axles take more of a beating with each bigger size you go. GO with what you want, Im just a performance freak so thats what I look at first. Again, Im not talking about top speed or Speedo, I couldnt care less about that.
