I just saw your question about $$ for a drop. Feel free to call my friend Mike Melotto at 4Wheel Parts in Miami Gardens. Tell him you know me (Dana Mills) - he'll give you a good price. I'm planning on dropping mine 2.5 inches in the back - I just haven't inquired about it yet.
I live in Pembroke Falls, just east of you. I'll post some pics of mine soon - it's getting there. Added 20 inch XD Addict rims (flat black), black grille, blacked out the tailights/3rd brake light. I'll look out for you!
It looks great. The headlights are badass - gives it a mean look, love it. I think I saw your truck at the Dodge dealership on University last weekend, no?
I think I'm going to pick up a Diablo, still unsure about the CAI too for the same reasons you are. One more question - did you remove the big ass Ram logo on the back? I read somewhere that it's riveted on there??? I haven't messed with it yet to verify but I wanted to remove and paint matte black.
I appreciate your reply. If I see you around I'll introduce myself and really checkout that bad boy! Mine's getting there...I've only had it for 3 weeks so I still have lots to do.
I have done all the work myself. The dyno numbers were based on a canned tune from Diablo. They used my truck to design the tune for the 4th Gen. I have a 93 oct. custom tune I purchased from a guy on one of the forums. Made a little difference but not alot.
The headlights I opened them and painted the inserts black, the lens are not smoked. The rims I pruchased from Jorge @ Wheel World in Miami, they have the best prices around. Still trying to deciede which CAI to purchase. I really am not a fan of any of the ones available with the plastic tube.
In regards to "how" question, lots of patience. I spray everything in my garage.
Where do you have your work done on your Ram? I also live in Pembroke Pines - I recently purchased an 09 Ram. Added Magnaflow and BakFlip cover. Getting ready to buy rims, tires, CAI, tuner, etc. Did you do a custom tune or are the Dyno figures you posted from your upgrades only? Just curious, your truck looks great! Also curious about the smoked headlights - did you mod yourself and if so how?
