Default My 05 Ram 1500.

Well I figured I would start a thread because I have a bunch of stuff that I will be doing soon.

Truck Info:
2005 Dodge Ram 1500
4.7L Auto 4x2 w/ 57,800 Miles
This is my first Dodge and I will never buy anything but a Dodge for the rest of my life.

Here are some pictures of it all stock.

Great looking truck, Steven! However, I am a little biased, however, as I have a very similar truck.

Second and Third Mod: Fender flares and plasti dipped emblems. Sorry one of the pictures looks like crap. I will update tomorrow.

Front: Flares and emblems



Back: Flares Only



Still to come:

The stuff I have or on order:
Plasti Dip rear emblems and Grill
Plasti Dip Front and Rear Bumpers
Plasti Dip Wheels
Flex-a-lite e-fan
4.5" Maxxtrac lift spindles and 2" lift shackles w/ RCX RC8000 Rear shocks
1.75" BORA wheel spacers

What needs to be ordered:
Tires - Can't decide on a size
Superchips - Originally bought one but it was defective, had to get a refund.
Don't know what's next; IDEA's welcomed.

I got my Flex-a-lite 183 fan installed. I really like it, drove about 50 miles at 70 mph and temp never even got to the half way point. Plus I noticed a little bit of better throttle response. Here is some picture of what it looks like installed. I need to clean up the wiring a little just not sure if I want to add a color or just stick with black wiring sleeves.
