came across a smooth deal on craigslist for a fiberglass tonneau cover, dark blue for 200 bucks. so in the process of that, my cb antennas moved up front instead of the bed.

nows a good time to explain the lack of a rear bumper....

one day after a long 12 hour mids shift, i backed up into a fire hydrant, and it made a nasty dent. so i took it off, and to this current moment i still haven't replaced it. i wanted to do a roll pan, but i use my hitch. i dont want a stock bumper, nor do i want to fork out for a heavy duty one.

ebay hids finally give out, and i replaced them with a set of slim ballast hids from vleds, sticking with the same 6000k color.




also included in this picture free of charge is a homemade grille insert for the winter months. duct tape, card board from a Point Special case of beer, and zip ties.

after seeing the led obsession by some members on here, i fell in love, and have been replacing all my bulbs truck wide with leds. Taillights were the first, then my interior with leds that matched the 6000k coloring of my hids (shown below), and a set pair of red leds, one for the ashtray, and one for the glove box (not shown... sorry). i eventually got switchbacks for the front turn signals.... thats coming up

i just want to point out that as im doing this im currently 200 miles short of 250000 miles on the original 318. aside from standard maintaining, i have not had to do any major repairs engine wise. the only real cosmetic features of my engine is the cai, ram air, and red summit racing spark plug wires.

another good craigslist deal landed me a set of projector headlights for my ram. i loved the look of them, but there were a few downfalls that only ended up me swapping back to my aftermarket heads. for one, i love my 6000k hids and for 2, the projector headlights wouldnt sit well in there mounting bracket, they regularly wobbled in it. to top it off, the aiming of the units was pretty shotty. like i said, i swapped back. heres what they looked like though

I saw it on a few of the rams around the Z, so i looked into the Stubby Antenna. After looking at the website, the second gen rams were not listed. Slightly down, i figured i would shoot the company an email with some questions on if i could return it should it not fit. they were happy to answer all my questions and in a timely fashion.



as you can see, it fits and works well. i replied back to the company with the good news, and they relayed that they would update the listing to include the second gen rams.

Not to toot my own horn but..... Your Welcome!

Truck is coming along great man. I miss my old sport 2nd Gen but it had so much wrong with it that I hadta give her up and couldn't pass up the deal I got on my 3rd Gen. What's next on your list for mods? And by the way if you want to save money do what I do.. Don't look at this site for a couple days, it works wonders for the bank account.
