Default EWC88's Build Thread!!

I figured I should start a build thread for my truck because I am starting to mod it more and more and figure a build thread is best to see the transaction. Now mods might not be as fast as others on here because I am always working now so its hard for me to get the time to mod, money is finally rolling in good now so thats not too bad of a issue.

I bought this ram already with tint on the windows, 22's, and flow masters. My plan for this truck is to get it lifted, not sure yet on size, new rims/wheels, new exhaust, new headlights, LED's, audio, etc. I will be asking you guys along the way for help, so be prepared!

Ok so no more blabbing, time for the pictures!

When I first got the truck:



Since then I have got a Truxedo Low Pro QT cover and Spyder LED smoked tail lights and third brake light:




When Braking:



Let me know what you guys think so far!

Looking at putting LEDs in soon, but have a question. For the dome light, superbrightleds shows I can get tower base styles or another kind that is on a circle board. I'm trying get a bright nice cool white look, which style would you go with?

Thanks alot! I got some pictures lastnight of the lights on during the night, I will post them after work.

I like the pin stripe as well, I was debating on removing it after I get some scratches fixed but I'm thinking of keeping it now lol.

Got a shorty antenna I will post some pics later tonight of.

Also looking at getting my LEDs soon for interior/ license plate.

Need some opinions now!

1). Should I do LED reverse or HID reverse?
2). Thinking about plasti dipping my rims, should I do matte or gloss?
3). Should I plasti dip my emblems or remove?

Wow been sometime since I posted last! Well I'm here to get this thread back going and modding!! I have been really busy with work and school so really haven't done much to the truck. Only thing I've done so far is wet sanded the headlights to make them look new again, and also bought new dash since mine was cracked, but yet to install it.

But still need your guys help with what finish I should plastidip my rims? I was thinking of just sanding them down since the wheels are crap anyway and doing it the gloss but open to opinions! Also looking at getting a SRT fiber glass hood but not sure, what do you guys think??
