Before. Sport grille just installed.


After

If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy and how much did you pay for the sport projectors and grille? Been considering the same mods for my truck when it comes in.

Ordered Airlift 1000s for the rear. Jegs price matches amazon right now for $77.60. Seemed like a no brainer deal for anyone that tows or uses their bed!!

The grille cost me under 300.00 through my dealership. I could have done it for less by just ordering the insert and having the chrome surround painted but I decided to just replace the whole thing. I have a friend who is a painter who painted it for me.

As far as the lights go; let's just say I'd recommend someone spending some sweat equity and baking theirs apart and painting them. They aren't cheap. The only trucks I like the sport lights are on black trucks though. We have a few different colored sports and the black lights on other colors look out of place.

That's a tough call. I actually think the chrome lights tie in good with the chrome grilles. I hated the stock chrome grille. Maybe if it had had a billet insert like the big horns it might have looked better. It just looked like a giant sheet of tin foil on there to me.

The HID kits for the 13's are having issues. I've seen three now that have been installed and are throwing a low beam out warning on the screen. Jeremy is looking into it as we speak.
I had the issue of the light out, turned out (retrofitsource kit) that the resistors pigtail ends had to have the wiring reversed. (had to change the pins around, Andrew at the retrofitsource helped me.
Have Jeremy contact Andrew and ask about that, tell him to reference me and my truck to Andrew (the 13 with the 09 Duals)

Thanks for the info. I'll look into that. It might be a bit before I get around to messing with it. I've had the front end apart three times already messing around with it and I don't feel like doing it again anytime soon.

Freaking Dodge and their, let's build the front end around the headlights.

Only had my truck a few weeks so getting started with basic cost-effective car-care stuff that's easily justifiable for the wifey. Did WeatherTech front and rear mud guards a couple days ago and added WeatherTech front and rear rain guards today. Very happy I joined this forum the evening I bought her and read all the compliments on WeatherTech stuff. They look great and are made very well.

Thanks for the info. I have only had the truck a week, so I will wait a while to see if I have any other issues before heading back to the dealer.

I had a Line-X spray on bedliner applied today. It seems to be much heavier then the one that I saw from the factory. Looks great on my Ram 1500 Big Horn with the Cargo Box System. I have had the truck just under a week and have done the bedliner, added Bushwacker Fender Flares, and the AVS window vent covers. I ordered evrything to apply the Opti Coat 2.0 today. After I apply the Opti Coat I'll be done for a while!
