Arth Mod Thread
 
Figured I would use this just to keep track of the very few mods I do to the truck and see how it goes!

The day I picked the truck up from the dealership:

After I got home not even ten minutes later I added husky mud flaps and some used mopar steps:

I am a bit of a chrome fan so to add something different I went ahead and got the mopar chrome side molding..I think it looks alright:

Now... I'm not sure how everyone will feel about this one but I like adding lights so I went ahead and added the Recon Bigrig lights and the tailgate bar/LED mudflaps.

Next up I wanted some vent visors so I got some off ebay and had them painted to match:

Then while I was there anyways I went ahead and removed that black tape that is just an eye sore!

To light up the road better I just changed out the factory bulb for some silverstar ultra bulbs and aimed the headlights up just a hair. I think it will work for now until I feel like getting a retrofit HID setup:

More to come!

Not my style but nice truck! And I really like the painted vent visors, looks real clean.

I've been wondering when you were going to start one....

Good looking truck man. Not a fan of chrome but its working well for your build!

I think that the chrome looks good on a big truck. Really like the color matched visors.

The chrome works with the big rig styled trucks. You also got a Cummins tucked underneath that hood so you can definitely set off the big rig look.. Now all she needs is the big rig stacks.. Would definitely go with chrome ones for your build of course lol. I like the truck man. It looks great, really like the LED bar and mudflaps.

Aww lawd watch out everyone! Arth has started a build thread. So that little line about "very little mods" he made in the beginning, is no longer valid! Truck looks good bud

Arth, how is the vision now that those visors are painter?
Looks sweet!

Got more pics of the tailgate light?

Arth 06-16-2012 11:32 PM

I personally didn't have any changes after adding the visors because of my huge towing mirrors. I will get better pictures of the lights at night sometime...going to pickup another BIGRIG running light so that I have amber all down the side of the truck. Chrome bug deflector next!

Love to see the coming additions :smileup:

Nice truck, like them visors, if you ever have a chance, see if you can get a drivers perspective view out the corner with those painted visors, would like to see what effect it has on visibility. Great mods, nice work
