FlashPaq won't be here until Friday. Will update this weekend.

Verifying I have a suitable Amp install Wiring Kit with long enough cables. Think I still have one or two KnuConceptz kits in storage.

The DuRonbo DuRango has become the Company Vehicle for RK PC Parts and Repair, LLC now that it's Incorporated!

Waiting on my Sales Tax ID number to get here from the state so I can get parts at wholesale!

Ordered a pair of OEM Style aftermarket headlights off Eghey. $107.99 shipped. Originals have the yellow crusties forming from UV damage. Didn't want to install my new LED bulbs until I had new headlights. I didn't feel like doing the tedious wet sanding and polishing routine right now.

Superchips Flashpaq Tuner came in today. Supposed to be a refurbished item but it looks brand new including the box, cables, manuals and the protective plastic on the display screen.

Going out in about half hour and load a Performance canned tune and see how it does.

All Tuned Up! Need to drive it around a bit in the next few days to see if there's any noticeable difference. Saving Stock Tune and installing the Performance Tune worked without any issues.

Windshield Washer Nozzles came in today. It's raining so won't be able to install until tomorrow or next. Finest Chinkese crap available! Even came with a spare gasket. Got two nozzles and three gaskets.

About to install a Dash Cam in the Duronbo Durango. Took out the 8gb SD memory card and installed a 32gb card. Supposed to give me 560 minutes of recording time at 720p/30fps. The 8gb card would've been good for 140 minutes recording time.

Dash Cam is installed and setup. Just need to tuck the power cable up under the headliner, down the A Pillar and under the Dash to the power outlet.

Dash Cam Video captures.....

Headed down to the Bank to deposit some RK PC Parts and Repair, LLC cash. Here's a few shots. Ignore the dirty windshield. [email protected] captures.

Just starting out..... Ricer is visible to the right downhill.




Heading down the hill....



Turning into the Bank Remote Office Parking lot. Notice the Fake Beggar/Homeless with sign on the right!



Almost there!

New headlights arrived today. A project for this weekend with weather permitting. Removing the headlights is a much bigger PITA than any LH car. Need to go in from the back in the wheel well to remove a nut after taking a plastic cover off. Then remove two bolts from the front below the headlight and above the bumper cover. Joy!

Will install the new LED headlight bulbs I've had for awhile with the new headlights. This generation Durango uses a single bulb for both High/Low beams. New LED bulbs have SMDs at the appropriate spacing along the length to simulate the original filaments. We'll see how it looks when they're installed and used at night.

Think I'll convert the Durango to Road warrior duty for work and take the mileage off the Special. Work has me traveling all over to these Regional Airports to repair units and it's really ramped up in the last half of 2018 and will continue into 2019 and beyond!

The Durango is already high mileage so if it will work and not require huge amounts of $$$ to maintain and keep running then it's a go. Otherwise....need to start looking at other lower mileage used vehicles to pick up the slack.

Just ordered some Bilstein shocks Front/Rear and will install them. Need to install the new aftermarket headlights and LED bulbs to enhance my future driving experience!

It's a 4 day weekend now so weather permitting I might get some of the mods/upgrades done.

Here's the results from the Durango Business trip on Wednesday:

A 340 mile one day Business road trip and this is what I ended up with! 4.7L with 190k miles on the clock. 23.5 mpg which moved up to 23.6 about 10 minutes later on the OTIS. Not bad for a tired 4.7L.

Cruising probably 98% of that highway at a tick over 70 mph. Relatively flat.....slight hills. Probably 20 miles of in town traffic.
No A/C other than what might run for Defrost with the heat on.





And a shot of my $100 EBay REC NAV unit in action. With the cost of the Bezel and the REC about $200 total. Already had a NAV antenna laying around.

A productive afternoon of modding/upgrading! New aftermarket headlights and new LED High/Low Combo bulbs along with new parking and turn signal bulbs up front on the DuRonbo Durango!

From this:



To this:



Overall.....



Mo Better!

The new headlights came with new bulbs with the exception of the main high/low beam bulbs. My drivers side main headlight bulb was out since I bought the truck along with the drivers side parking light filament. I decided on LED main headlight bulbs so that was taken care of and the new headlights had new parking/turn signal bulbs in them already.

These are the LED headlight bulbs I bought @ $55 for the kit shipped. Includes CAN Bus anti-flicker modules.

Score!


17" Chrome wheels and good tires for $225 to go on the DuRonbo Durango! Off a 2013 Ram 1500. Same Bolt Pattern and wheel width/tire size as the Durango. 70% tread life left!
