Today I was talking with a co worker. He has a Dodge Ram diesel, and it'* far from stock. He has a huge turbo and a 6" exhaust. Ya, you read that right, 6". It looks like a anaconda is living under the truck. He said he was going down the high way with the cruise set at 72, he was hauling his 5th wheel and behind that was his boat. As he was driving he said the cruise stuttered a bit. He was about to turn off the cruise and the radio to hear what was going on. Before he could do that there was a huge bang, then more loud noises that defy description. He shut the engine down and pulled over. Dead.
I must say, I was surprised at how thin the flex plate was on such a big truck.
