Default Lookin to start a wish list.

I want to start a wish list that i can do to my 98 ram 5.2. i already am looking for shock absorbers since the existing to shot out and some projector head lights. im leaving the tail lights alone cause i like the ram template on it and i definitely want to do a real exhaust kit no glass packs and some stuff to the engine, idk when ill actually start the mods but i'd like some insight of what i can do.

I am doing the same thing. I had an accident a few months ago, so I am replacing some things. I am starting with the front (point of impact) by replacing the bumper to the sport with a small bull bar. Adding projector lights. Also, adding an LED third brake light. Moving to the inside, I am going to add a blue LED dome light, white LED map lights. Engine compartment will be cleaned, adding some headers to a full magnaflow exhaust, and maybe, just maybe (depending on bank roll, will get a 6" lift. I have the 2wd and have only seen one kit for it. I am sure the list will change dramatically over the build.

I have a '95 Ram 1500 with the 5.2L and a 5 speed manual. Beginning with a front end wreck in the winter, I went to LMC Truck and picked up their billet chrome bumper with the set of driving lights and fog lights. For about $650 I was able to get it to my doorstep. Since then, I've bought Black projector headlights, black LED tail lights, and a smoked third brake light. After that I put in a Pioneer deck with Kenwood 6x9 door speakers with their own custom equalizers placed on each speaker and tweeters up top. Then I bought a Flowmaster American Thunder Series dual cat-back exhaust. The rumble sounds very agressive at 2-3.5k RPM's. Then I replaced the clutch with a Luk Pro Gold and completed a top end fuel system clean of my engine.

Just with those few things, I've been able to stand out from the crowd and gain some nice power while boosting my mpg about .5
