Robs 01' custom fire restore build log
What's up guys, been a member here for a while now and I'm a member to alot of audio forums. I really never started a build log or had any details for my ram until today. I was gifted my baby(my ram) when I was 15. It was fully burned from a cigarette being tossed out of the window and landed in the bed. So I was in the vehicle the day it burned luckily we got out before the truck was engulfed in flames, from that day we had the truck brought back to the house where it sat for a few years before I decided to take it over as my own.

So when I started my project I was about 17. I had a bunch of pics on te last phone but it was stolen so ill post up what I have now. Un fortunately I can't show you how bad it was burned.

But I was able to strip the entire vehicle and get it ready for blasting and paint... If only it was that easy...

So I ran into problems when trying to blast and prep for paint.. With the vehicle being burned all of the paint burned off so now there is bare metal on the inside of everything such as in between the roof skin and the rear wall. And the roof started to sag.

So I removed the roof
To remove the roof I used a spot weld cutter from harbor freight.
Ill have more vids posted once I get around to up loading them

Update 1

Update 2

While waiting for steel to come in I lowered the front with 3" djm springs and I put a summit lowering shackle kit in the rear. I'm debating on doing a 4 link or just lowering it more.
