Wink Big Horn12 Build in Progress (pics included)

Well the names Alex but I go by Mason thanks to my career field, I am in the USAF and currently stationed at Davis Monthan AFB in Tucson Arizona, just got here less than a week ago PCS'ed from Keesler in Biloxi, MS. I purchased my 2012 Ram Big Horn in Louisiana and got the SLT package, wanted the Sport but they didn't have any and I needed to buy as I was hauling a lot of my personal property to AZ so now I am looking into color matching everything. I'm new to the truck world but love my RAM so far.

I do however need a lot of help/ advice so please feel free to bombard me with knowledge/wisdom and experience.


This is the truck the day I brought it home...




And thanks to you all I quickly spent more money...




Also had the Rhino liner done and it's amazing, literally indestructible.


After a few weeks I felt the truck was just to quiet, that big ol' HEMI shouldn't be toned down, I wanted it to sound angry so off came the humongous muffler and in it's place went a magnaflow 3in OD to 2 1/4in OD Y pipe



That still wasn't good enough so off came the resignators and I put on bigger magnaflow tips, Now that b*tch sounds bad.... I'll post a video tomorrow.





Then came the tint, had the front windows done and the strip across the front.



After I finally got around to doing the debadge, I still have to take off the Big Horn as I decided to tackle this project the night before we had to drive across the country.... Thinking about taking off the HEMI badges and black chroming them, opinions?









Also blacked out the tail lights as well..





And here's a picture from my last day of salt water fishing in a long time =/




I've been in Arizona for 3 days now and already got back to modding.. New locking gas cap...



I have a crap ton of mod ideas for the long term future and the near future, I would like advice on headlights, bulbs, projectors, interior lights, fog lights etc, also advice on what to do with all the chrome!!! Opinions on leveling kits, wheels, tires, TB, interior mods you name it, enlighten me! Thanks!

Welcome to the Z man. Truck is looking great and believe me this is definitely the site to be on for mod ideas. Matter of fact if you don't watch your bank account ya may end up going broke because of this site. For headlights I would go with an HID projector set up. They look amazing and you can see forever. Will be checking in more on this thread. I like the locking gas cap, looks good with the truck. Also for blacking out the chrome for a temporary thing, try Plasti-Dip.

Thanks guys. I'm def looking into the projectors just kinda overwhelmed there's so many choices. I also want te interior lights.

And yeah it's the bully. The first one the guy gave me was for a 08 09 1500 and 09-11 2500-3500. He told me it would fit but I was hesitant so kept searching
Myself until I found the one for 09-11 and it fits perfectly. There's a tiny gap but it's just like the stock cap gap.
