Dodge It or Ram It

Last week, I worked hard in the sewing room garage. If you know me, you know that I'm not afraid of getting dirty, and that I learned about cars at my daddy's side as a wee child.

We've had more than our share of brake issues with our '96 Dodge Ram 2500. I think that's what they had in mind when they named it.
...either Dodge it or Ram it, 'cause you ain't gonna stop
The brakes have never been anything to brag about, although we've changed nearly everything in the system several times. Well, not any more. Now that we found the perfect combination of parts and components, this beast will stop on a dime.

By the way, brake fluid is slippery stuff, and it will strip the polish right off your fingernails. I'll be giving myself a manicure this week.
