2001 dodge ram 1500 build
 
Hey this is my build since i got the truck little over 6 months ago.
Picked up the truck at a auction for $2100 its a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.2 little rust decent paint ran perfected 120k miles. Im 17 so this be a slow build after i post everything up till now. My iPhone went though the washer so the camera its not that good and it gets worse later on in the pics.
this what she look liked then i first got it.

Little while later made a new light bar in my welding class. used a design off the newer ram light bars. had to drill some holes in the bumper right below the plastic cover. Bought some cheap light covers on eBay i think they match black and white.

Top view i put the wiring though the old hole in the bumper i might silicone around and them and paint over it to match.
