mr.lopar's mod thread
sapose i can start a build thread on my 99 ram

heres what it looked like the day i brought it home in october of 09, damn it was a nice truck:doh:

few days later the topper and running boards came off and swapped out the wheels/tires for 15x8 wagons wrapped in 32s

that winter i trashed the 1st bumper climbin a snow bank at work

Awesome! Now show us some mods...

last winter i did a performance tune up: new plugs,cap,rotor, 8.5mm plug wires, accel supercoil, trick flow tb spacer, eddy pro-flo air filter, pacesetter headers, jegs catless y-pipe, and glasspak muffler

this spring i was gettin ideas of buildin into a baja/pre-runner, so to get things flowin i bought a 5 panel race mirror

and after lookin at pics of trucks online, i built myself a tire gate

then remembered we had some race bucket sittin around that we turned into computer chairs that we never used, so i figured id put em to use

and diggin around in one of my bins in the parts shed, i found my tach, so naturally it had to get installed

mr.lopar 08-27-2011 11:42 PM

after i join here i found out about the very easy tb mod, and tps mod, so i went ahead and did them

and lookin online more found the offroad light bracket for the 3rd brake light, so i made one

got bord so i painted the dash bezel and tach bezel with VHT's wrinkle paint

cut my antenna down to a wooping 8"

and as i know a lot of you know, i just finished buildin my pre-runner front bumper

mr.lopar 08-27-2011 11:59 PM

got bord today and pulled out the cruise control since i dont use it and after i get an aftermarket wheel ill loose the button anyways. also pulled out the spare tire winch.

also pulled the rear bumper to figure out how to build a pre-runner style bumper

but after lookin at it i dont think i could build one that would look good, so i came in and looked at my pics of pre-runners/bajas, and think ill eliminate the rear bumper all together, cut the corners of the box off, and raise the trailer hitch up to the bottom of the frame rails (use it to much to eliminate that) some pics that i did in MS paint to show
put a piece of tape where i wanna cut it (still dunno if i wanna cut up my only box

Are those headers painted with the regular paint they come with or did you put high temp paint on them?
