Canadian Hemi Pride 2008 Ram 1500 SXT Build Thread
 
Been really slacking on making this.. But figured it was time to jump on board. So here we go.. pic heavy from stock to now, as best as I can. Somewhere along I switched the soft cover that came with the truck from a F250 ext cab to a proper sized cab and a Audivox code alarm 2 way alarm system with auto start, and a hood bug guard.
First day bone stock- October 2012

I also forgot to take pics of my Diablo sport Trinity tuner, Dipped emblems, Led reverse lights, Window visors and some other minor things.
Also want to say thank you to Bully's Performance, and specifically Andrew for dealing with my ten trillion questions through text and email for some great prices and service as I purchases my light bar, MBRP tip, Bilstiens and tires/ Rims combo through them, and did not have any issues.
Future plans for my truck within the next year

1. Husky Floormats
2. 6" lift.. Eithor RCX or BDS
3.Black Headlights.
4. Install my alpine type S speakers, maybe new deck and sub.
5. Possibly bush bar/ bull bar.
6. Custom engine skid plate.
7. Tinted fronts to match back and a limo tint eyebrow tint.
8. Probably a ton more stuff I can't remember.


But ya.. My truck so far, and updates will follow.

Your federals look big :LOL:.. And for the price they are, they are great tires. Now we both just need lifts sometime in the future.. Keeping the 3rd gens alive.

Awh that does suck. Damn federal messing up their measurements.. I notice the Hercules 35" are no where near the same height as mine.

I plan to lift mine next year and then will probably be near the end of the mod list. And then... Start saving for a stick shift cummins:Wow1:... Then lift that up too.
