Darkknight3829 Mod Thread II
I purchased my 2010 Ram 1500 4.7L back in December of 2010.
Here is the first picture of it completely stock.
Well, here we go........

Stock Ram

1st- I sanded and painted the stock aluminum wheels with black engine enamel.

2nd- I then added the Challenger R/T stripes. had them custom made at a local sign store. Applied them myself using a bottle of water and windex, and a flat piece of plastic to use as a squeegy.

3rd- I debadged the truck using a blow-dryer, industr. adhesive remover, and a wedge to remove the emblems.

4th- Added Red/Black seat covers from XR racing

5th- Purchased a dual cold air intake. Universal kit.

6th-removed my grill. Sanded the entire grill down. Primed it. Then laid about 3-4 coats of metallic black. Painted the logo red as well. Then clear coated everything. Also added chrome grill inserts.

7th- I purchased an AirAid Cold air intake system along with a PowerAid throttle body spacer.

8th- I bought the Diablo Trinity for my Programmer, also at a later date i re-routed the wires to look nice and clean. which is seen in the second photo.

9th- Installed a torque converter from TCI, gave me about 2500 stall speed.

I also had my exhaust muffler cut off and i replaced it with a simple piece of pipe. Its a straight through.

Here is sort of a before and after photo of the grill

This is my BEAUT now.

I'm proud to say i have done all the mods myself and have been done or installed by my own two hands. I take pride in my truck!
I am unsure of what will be next for my ram. But i know i am no where near through with it. Hope you all liked it! Work in PROGRESS!
