Start of the War Wagon
 
I would like to start by saying Thank you to everyone on the site for all the good ideas (My bank account hates you all )

Sorry I don`t have any pictures yet but I will get pictures up as soon as I get back to the states I`m overseas until next month.

I bought a new silver 2013 4x4 Express QC in June when I was home on leave. Put a K&N drop in filter in before I even got home. so far I have ordered the following:

Black bull bar with off road lights

Black nerf bars

Hitch receiver

GPS

Stubby antenna

Plasti dip for all the chrome badges (will probably take the 1500 off and just leave the RAM) and wheels until I get new ones

On the 1st I will be ordering the following:

Bullydog tuner

Vararam with hemi orange cover

PTB

CB radio (need some mount ideas for this one and for the antenna)

Hemi orange paint for the break calipers

(any suggestions on best places to order from?)

will also get window tint as soon as I get home I`m thinking 20%

the next 1-2 months will see

180 degree thermostat

12v outlet in the bed

Power inverter in the cab

Heated seats

Parking sensors

Small pistol vault under front seat (still need ideas for longuns thinking of making something under the backseats)



As well as in the next 3-4 months:

Leveling kit/ body lift

New wheels and tires (still need to do a lot of research on what size and type I want to get. Black rims for sure probably 17" x 33 or 35 M/T or A/T)

Kore tactical front bumper

Exhaust (need ideas)

Lights behind the grill

Better reverse lights (need help with this I have no clue what to do here )

Roof rack (like I saw on another members truck with lights all the way around I`m 50" LED bars? )

Second battery

Toolbox (maybe haven't decided if i want one yet or not thoughts?)

Tow mirrors

Dashcam

Scanner

Rear airbags (with on board compressor that can also inflate tires and run air tools)


Any other ideas that you think would look good or be useful?

^This is how I know you are from Texas :LOL:.. So awesome.
For tires.. I have black 17" XD addict rims on 35/12.50/17 Toyo open Country M/t and love them. For leveling kit I highly reconmend the Bilstien 5100 adjustable struts.. Get a great ride with them and I beleive the 4th gens max out at 2'8". Exhaust.. If you want loud I say Flowmaster- super 44, super 40, super 10, and get a magnaflow y pipe to replace the stock and you could get black 5" tips which look awesome on all Rams especially 4th gens.

For the CB.. You could run 2 antennas and mount them in between the cab and the box. All my friends with CB's have them mounted there and I am thinking of it too.

All in all.. I am excited to follow this thread and see it all start to come along once you are back home.. Your truck will look awesome.

aparini 09-19-2013 07:27 PM

yeah I saw that and I think it sucks and is stupid but fact is its the only option for the 13s and I don't ever plan to buy a used tuner or to sell mine when I get it.
