My Build PX8 RAM
I picked up my Ram on March 7th, went through 3 dealerships before I could find one that would order my truck with the factory rubber and carpet mats, you would not believe how difficult that was, I assumed by picking the rubber mat option, thats what you got, but no, you actually delete your carpet mats, and they get $190.00 for the rubber to boot, so I asked how much for the carpet mats, for the factory mats I was told $320.00, that makes those rubber mats worth 500 bucks, so long story short 3 dealerships before they saw it my way and gave me both sets of mats. My truck is fully loaded, the only thing I didn't take was the cargo management and those side steps< oh and by the way, the dealer that wanted 300 bucks for the mats, wanted to charge me one hour labour per side to take off the bars with no credit, and 3 hrs per side for the billet ready lift spacers with a major allignment as the cherry on top. Needless to say the blew the sale, and I reminded them of that everyone of the four phone calls they made to try and change my mind. Any way I decided to order and get exactly what I wanted, and here it is beside old faithful when I brought it home.

First real mod was the headlights and the roof marker lights

Added the Iron Cross steps

Then the painted EGR pocket flares and smoked vent visors

Then I decided I liked the Recon halos beter so I did the tail lights at the same time as well as the leer 700 Lid

Finally the grill had to go, and swapped in a black honeycomb

Still working on wheels, I have it down to American Racing or XD

Let me know what you think, I'm kind of leaning toward number 3

Truck looks great :smiley_thumbs_up:, and definitely prefer #1 unless you are going to do something crazy with the suspension..

I want to see some interior pictures of this madness you are talking about...

Hell yea man, looks good!
I also like the #3 rims

Any ideas out there on what to do with the fogs, are there tinted ones out there on the market place, kind of sucks having everything tinted or blacked out and have those bright white and shiny lights staring at you, like I said, any ideas greatly appreciated

R- vinyl has stick on tint to cover fogs

TimW 07-19-2012 11:40 PM

Yeah, I saw that stuff, was hoping for something mor permanent, can these ones be taken apart and maybe painted

gotbrains230 07-19-2012 11:50 PM

I'm sure they can, but I can't recall anyone on here who has
Ill be baking and painting my headlights soon, they just don't go with anything
Hopefully I can do the fogs too

TimW 07-20-2012 12:00 AM

Yeah I've been reading about that, whats the point of the baking, what does it do, assist in separating the lights??

I vote wheel 3.
What is it?
Love your truck as I've said it before :smileup:

You did to show your RT badge though.

Number three are American Racing ATX Artillery, and the badge? naw, if I wanted to show that I would have done this, :LOL:
