alright back to business. i did a half job on this one... one of this rams previous owners did alright by me, so i didnt have to debadge the truck. It looked alright like that... heres what i mean



i took it one step further and removed the black plastic molding along the doors



the slt badge... someone must have forgotten it...



i didnt!



and the tailgate, no badges...



but i hate plastic body molding



needless to say, my hands were rough after all that... be thankful if you have just emblems to strip off! i used the good ol fishing line to remove most of it, and thanks to brad12kx, i saw how easy some of this could be by using pro gaf tape. certainly helped out

LEDS!!!!!!!!!



and that last picture of the tailgate leads into my taillights again. i put up a post about modding my taillight wiring, specifically if or how i could make a second bulb light up in the taillights. it was suggested to tap into the wiring near the brake pedal, but i cheated and made it easier on myself. A trip to the local junkyard yeilded a set of brake light sockets off a wrecked 97 ram, and then i tapped the corrisponding wires to my rams brake wiring behind the taillights, and vola! i have two bulbs per side that light up. since i loved those leds ive been using, i bought a second set to match, and plugged it into the reverse housing in the taillights. aside from the picture above which is the daytime, heres a couple other pictures, at night.



this ones a bit rough, but it shows just how bright these suckers are, and this is without the brake on...

the light up hitch accessory is a chrome ram head logo close to the 4th gens logo. i lopped of the four prong wiring and wired it into my license plate wiring, and the left and right wires from the accessory to the power wire as well, this way the only way this lights up is when the lights are on, it doesnt get brighter when i brake and it doesnt flash with my turn signals, just the way i wanted it. its just a small little touch, but i like it.

MORE LEDS! like i said, im in love with leds, and my obsession hasnt subsided. thanks to vleds again, i oreded a set of switchback turn signal bulbs. if you dont know what those are, ill explain. when i turn my parking lights on, the leds light up white, mine specifically close to the 6000k white to match my headlight hids. then when you hit your turn signal, they cut to amber leds. once the turn is complete, they cut back to white. vleds offers two types, type one your turn signal flashes white/amber/white/amber and so on. type two flashes amber only, which is what i wanted, and got.

leds off



running lights



turn signal



and a full view

at this point i almost convinced myself my lighting was finished. well its not. over the past month ive been building sets of offroad hid driving and fog lights. i have completed set of hella 500 hid converts, 6000k of course, and i HAD a complete finished set of PIAA converts with, you guessed it... 6000k. at the time, the PIAAs had a colored lense that made the final output very yellow, and i liked that thought, using them for adverse weather. but South Dakota had other thoughts, and while test fitting them, a nice SD wind blew one off my bumper and smacked/smashed it all over the ground and shattered the glass. so PIAAs are out, and im in the market for more Hella 500s, specifically the fog lense. its up in the air yet if im going to run 3000k yellow hid bulbs or my favorite 6000ks.

heres my gathering of foglights, hid ballasts, and hid bulbs, pre-PIAA disaster



im calling this a test mount as the lights will never be mounted on this bumper, youll see where they go soon enough



all converts ive used a H3 hib bulb as its a very slim, slender base and glass, so it fits into those nice little pockets

Thanks. Most of the work has been cosmetic so far. I'm not going to dump a lot of money in the engine with as many miles as she has. I'm definitely going to aim for 300000 miles then ill treat it to a powerplant under the hood.

In a couple days ill put up some more mods.
