jdubsss Progression Thread
 
Snatching up the idea from some of you on the forums and putting all the mods as they come into this one thread so I'm not spamming and boring you guys to tears :LOL:

Let's start at the beginning shall we...


Delivery Day
Obviously 100% stock, 2011 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi Laramie...instant love <3

My Calling Card - Tinted Windows and Tails
The first step in my opinion to making your automobile stand out. There's a reason every car ad you see has fully tinted windows, it looks that much better for very little investment!!

Performance Boost
Took a break for a while and this is when the bug really bit me. Installed the DoD14M kit (14" magnaflow muffler) and have been crazy spending $$$ like a mad man ever since. Don't have pictures of the exhaust, but a video of her idling should suffice. After that, installed an AirRaid Cold Air Intake.

Pillar Tape Removal
Simplest mod on the planet. Remove a screw, peel tape, and your truck looks better. Also pictured is my stubby antenna by Sickspeed.

Taillights
Installed Smoked Recon LED Tails and Third Brake Light. Again, a very simple modification. Two screws remove on each side when you put the tailgate down and the headlight pops right out. Remove the bulbs and plug in the LED harness, you're done.

Debadging the Tailgate
FREE MOD! Doesn't really get much better than that. I used fishing line, goo gone, some microfiber rags, and my hands. If I decide to do more debadging than this, I'll definitely be going the route of the eraser wheel as it was way too time consuming the way I did it. Starting at just the Tailgate and eventually working my way up.

Lol. I've used this saying a lot lately: "it's easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission". Of course I'm not married and my gf doesn't know I say that. Ha ha

Truck looks great! Nice to see some Laramies getting modded instead of taking up all the handicap spots! :) Love the monotone Laramie!
