thanks everyone. She is still beautiful...and, she's been very good to me. So, a good relationship And...as I've said before, you'd have to see it in person to really appreciate the peeling clearcoat...lol
But, thanks regardless. But, what she is right now is a very attractive lady that has aged. All she needs is a face lift, and, she's 0 again

Well...I have a family friend that owes me some favors. I helped him out at his body shop for about a week, and, come the end of the week, he had no money. So, I told him, he buys the paint and paints my trucks, and not the cheap stuff either. He said, okay. But, I have to buy the clear coat, and, for the good stuff that'll make it deep looking, its about $250. So, thats the cost of the paint job. I'm also doing all the body work myself.

As far as the front bumper...lol My original one was bent, so, I grabbed this one out of the junkyard and it was grey...so..........

about 3 cans of Wal-Mart Gloss black and it looks better than the truck Can't see any paint strokes either....haha.

But, thanks again everyone. I'll be sure to take pics during and after she's done.

Thanks! And, I was just looking at a picture of when we first got it...man was she pretty. I'm actually very excited to get it painted

I'm also going to put the bed cover back on and run stripes across the bed cover and down the front bumper as well.

It'll be done right...I promise

I still like the faded paint look. I wouldn't paint it because it took 12 years to make it look that cool.

Good look at things man haha. I wish people would appreciate the fact that they will have a slim chance of seeing another SS/T... My friends just say it's I own a Ram with stripes. Bastards lol

Most folks have never heard of one. I never remember seeing any advertising on an SS/T. In fact, I didn't realize they were still building them in 1998 until I saw mine through the showroom window. Everybody that sees my truck is more impressed/amazed by the scratch free bed and overall condition of my truck than the fact that it is an SS/T.

Tell them that it has a cool muffler and shiny exhaust tip too.

I have to agree with them to an extent. I wish they had bumped the horsepower up and offered a Viper T-56. However, $1380 for the SS/T package was really a good deal for what you got. How many other special editions were that cheap?

I hope you're right. I just don't think it will be the case. In 1978 and 1979, the Little Red Express didn't have any competition. It was also as fast as a Corvette and Trans Am. The SS/T had the Lightning and 454 SS to compete against as well as the Indy Ram. Supercharged Lightnings were out the next year (1999) and the Viper powered Ram (SRT-10) came later. I think the 1996 Indy Ram will be the only 1990's Dodge pickup to have any collector status based solely on the Indianapolis 500 connection.
