My Build/Mods- 2010 Ram 1500 2wd (pictures)
 
Ok so far I started with a 2010 2wd Ram 1500 Laramie. Shes got it all except 4 wheel drive and the ram box, wish i had both of those. :i_rolleyes:

* some of these pictures are not great quality i apologize in advance*

The day i bought her.

So far i have got the windows tinted and put on a Magnaflow mufflex DOD18 muffler.

Before tints (the window is half down its the best i have)

So now i want bigger tires, still running stocker size right now. I was thinking the Nitto Trail grappler but im still not 100% sure what to go with yet.
If i do go with the nitto trails do i get the:
LT295/65R20 E 129/126Q (Overall Width: 12.13, Overall Diameter: 35.47)
or
LT295/60R20 E 126Q (Overall Width: 12.13, Overall Diameter: 34.45)
or a completely different size??

I am open to suggestions on the tire brand and size. I would like a MT tire for the aggressive look and i do some work on the family farm but also do highway/city driving as well. *im keeping the stock 20" chrome rims*

I do have a 2" truxxx level kit on the way along with rough country 1/4" spacers, (http://www.topguncustomz.com/p-7809-...t-pattern.aspx) just to be on the safe side when i do decide on a tire. It should be here soon. :smileup:

I am also kicking around the idea of getting some different shocks that would be a littler longer than stock to accommodate the level kit so as to keep the stock ride. i would like some suggestions on these as well.
* i cant use the bilstien 5100 adjustable shocks due to the fact they are 4x4 only*

Other mods on the list are:
Volant CAI
Spray in bed liner (line-x or rhino liner?)
WeatherTech Extreme-Duty DigitalFit Floor Liners
Maybe a different gear ratio due to bigger tires (not sure which?)
Some halo lights, they look sweet! (havent researched enough yet)

Thats all i can think of/ remember right now! Any suggestions, input and of course pictures :smileup: are welcome!
Thanks in advance for any help and ill keep this updated the best i can!

Looking good, how do you like your magnaflow? I'm thinking of getting the 14 inch, what made you get the 18 inch

Nice Ride, nice color, can't wait to see your next mods. I also put on a magnaflow 18, love it. Great sound

Nice lookin truck man! Just a word of caution on the 295/60-20's. Another owner here experienced tire rub from contacting the upper control arm running that exact size on his OE 20's with the +19mm offset. You definitely want to run a +5mm or less so as to avoid tire contact to your control arms. Or invest in some wheel spacers with the built in hubcenter rings like these.

I was going to get some 1/4" spacers. Would the ones you mentioned be better? and where would i find some if so?

I love the magnaflow! I recorded some pro quality audio of it the other day at idle and revving it up a little in the parking lot at work, i need to post up the video. I went with the 18 because i wanted a good deep sound, no cabin drone but responsive when you step on it. Also i didnt want something so loud that it woke the neighbors and rattled windows :LOL: even though I woulda been fine with it just thinking of other :smileup: its highly recommended easy install expect the stock muffler was a bitch to get out! and one of my exhaust tips seems to sit a little lower but i think that my fault somehow, haven't figured out how to get it back up :4-dontknow: but its not noticeable by anyone else just me. You know how it is you notice things others dont on your own ride!

Thanks! i love the color! Originally i was looking for a silver but when i locked eyes on this blue i was sold! I dont think they are making this color of blue anymore in the newer models, i could be wrong though.

i just ordered my Volant CAI today for 300 shipped best price i have ever seen on these!

Level kit is on its way as well. :smiley_thumbs_up:
