Nice looking RAM, thanks for the pic. That's a nice list you have going there. Post up a pic after you get the new cab lights installed.

will do, its ball joints and u joints today so i can get a sticker tomorrow and maybe cab lights next weekend if i can find some help to rip out my head board (four hands greater than two)

Its says this underneath the build thread:
When you are modding everything on your Dodge Ram, This is the place to showcase the build.


And now back to the normal thread,
Looks like your making a lot of progress on your truck already!

Did I miss something. Who's being negative ?

It got deleted cuz a newbie was being rude

I must of missed what ever he said,
to answer questions in the mean time i am keeping them as i need them for state inspections and they dont look half bad. the future might hold a set of bushwackers (or somethin similar)
I have done some work i still got more, with the temp around 9'F it was too cold to work on it and the alternator is busted (after a new battery and terminals) so im runing around to junk yards to get that fixed as well, i also might move up my suspension swap to start plowing (not sure yet), i need push plates because its going from a 05 2500 to my truck
but a buddy of mine is letting me use his garadge this weekend
also i got a mod that i have been drawing out in class to go on the back of my truck, i got a rough sketch so ill post it later and get your opinions
