Touching base from Montana
I bought a 2010 Ram1500 CC 01/10 and have since built it up and used this site for inspiration and advice so I thought I should register. I will upload some pics of the truck when I have them. For now, here are the mods I have done to the rig:
Deep water blue pearl with PTM Bushwacker pocket style flairs, NFab SS nerf steps, Pro Flaps mud flaps (4), 4" Mopar (Superlift) lift kit, 18" Pro Comp polished wheels with 35X12.50 Mickey ATZ tires, PTM stock grille, Flowmaster super 44, Superchips Flashpaq tuner, Volant CAI, Weatherguard polished crossover box, Huskyliner Weatherbeaters floor mats, Front tow hooks (since for some reason these aren't stock on a 4wd truck,) Custom canvas seatcovers in Realtree Max4 from Headwaters Seatcovers (Three Forks Montana)
That's it, the truck isn't very practical but that's why I love it

Congratulations on the Ram
sounds like you didn't waste any time with your mods

which rear end ratio does it have ? 3.92?

No, it has 3.55's. I would like to lower the diff ratio a little to get the torque back to stock after putting larger tires on it. I see Dodge put lower gears in that new Outdoorsman and may go that route. To be honest I's like 4.12's in the thing but am afraid of making it rev too high when I commute at 80. Here is a pic of it I found mid build-up.

some of the Outdoorsman Rams that have the 3.92 ratio don't have the LSD

if i read right, the 2012s won't have a 3.92 option, they are changing to a 3.99 ratio

Welcome to the forum, :Hey:
This forum is full of great looking trucks; packed with great mod ideas and there are loads of knowledgeable and experienced people here.

I wouldn't even hesitate putting in 4:10 gears. With the trans OD ratios, the 4:10 is a great highway gear with big tires. You'll likely get better fuel mileage with them too. :smileup:

AND - We all like pix! Thanks for sharing one of yours. :smileup:

Enjoy the Z!
