RAM725 HD-Build: Lift, Wheels, Tires, & More
 
As many of you know. The 2012 1500 is gone. I decided that I had done all I could to enjoy it, but nothing can replace the love for a Cummins. When I went from an SLT 03 2500 5.9 Cummins into a loaded 06 Mega Cab Hemi, I thought I'd be happy, and I wasn't. Then I went from an 06 2500 Cummins SLT to the loaded 2012 Ram 1500, thought i'd be happy and I wasn't. So now I have a 2012 Ram 2500 4x4 Cummins. The build will be in stages depending on: 1. current wallet conditions and 2. the amount of time I have to work on it. Just like the 1500, I will continually change my mind and my plans for the build. It is going to be a fun time though.

Truck:
2012 Ram 2500 4x4 CCSB
SLT Bighorn (Base except it has center console)
6.7 Cummins HO
Automatic

1st Stage:
(To be done by end of July)
2-3" Leveling Kit
35x12.50x17 Mud Terrains
Painted Pocket Flares
N-Fab Pre Runner Bar w/ 30" LED bar
Carli Trac Bar
Smoked LED Tails
AFE Stage 2 Pro Dry S Intake
6" Exhaust Tip
Tow Mirrors

2nd Stage:
(To be done by January 2014)
8" BDS Long arm kit
Fox Resis
Extended Front Drive Shaft
38x15.50x20 Toyo MT
20x10 BMF Novakanes
JJ Headlights
Magtech Rear Diff
Road Armor or Iron Bull Fr&Rr Bumpers
Audio System
Nav Unit

3rd Stage:
(When I feel the warranty doesnt matter)
H&S Tuner
5" Flo Pro TBE Exhaust
ARP Studs
Air Dog Lift Pump
Probably more...

4th Stage:
(One Day)
RoadWire Custom Leather
Painted Interior Trim


It is going to be a fun build. I look forward to it. I have tons more to add to this. As of right now it only has 220 miles on it. So I cant be to crazy with it.

I'm with you. I've left the sides alone. But cleared everything off the tailgate

This jealously for the 2 of you will not subside.....I will have to join you both soon

Tyler, love the truck. But pls put larger wheels on.
Bump some of your phase 1 into phase 2 and skip the level and just LIFT :smiley_thumbs_up:

fastNugly @ BP 05-25-2013 12:26 AM

Actually.
Swap all of phase 1 and 2 around
That's more like it

Ram725 05-25-2013 12:52 AM

Trust me. I want to do phase 2 right now. Actually tomorrow. But it just isn't a good time. It will happen though. No worries.

I suggest waiting it our a few more months if it means doing the lift first.
No point in wasting $$ on a level and smaller wheels

Nah, I like the look of the level and 35s. And I cant wait another 30 days on these tires and stance...

Ram725 05-25-2013 12:06 PM

Here is an idea of what the Ram will look like with level on 35s :smileup:

Add pocket flares and Nfab Pre-Runner bar it will still look really mean.
