Go for this if you can't find it or don't want a donor part go t LMC truck.com and order a free catolog also look at autozone if its a front bumper you need you can buy the black electro prime painable one for about $200.

Try Car-part.com and look under doors. It'll give you more free time to work on the truck. I didn't get what year it is...however I replaced my front bumper ('95) with an '01 and brackets (had to drill 2 holes in the bracket). The grille is different insomuch as it has the drop for the center where the bumper drops.

You could always unplug the reverse lights now for the time being.

Did the new dash make the smelly rig smell go away?...so many loose ends...

Rig smell did NOT go away!! The carpet will have to be replaced. There is grease and goo literally dripping down through the drain plugs in the floor board. Ugh. Good carpet source? Anyone? Bueller?

WarlockIII - Is your hood scoop functional? Our is a 98. J would like to Ram air it, but we're having a wee bit of trouble finding a pre-fab functional hood scoop or scooped hood. Would hate to have to fab our own. If you have a hook up, I'd love to know!

It's going to be functional. Going to adapt an aftermarket CAI similar to a shaker set-up.

The scoop itself is off a 2004 Ford Thunderbolt. I was working at a scrap yard for years and the Thunderbolt came in with a crushed nose...so it fell off.

How convenient for you!!

We lucked out with the dash in ours. J found a 2008 Ram 1500 that had 40K on the odometer that had been totaled in a front end collision. Dash was in perfect shape. Score! Stupid wiring harness doesn't match though. No clue why, but the new dash didn't have the plug for the dome light/power door locks. So now, we're going to have to take the wiring harness out of the old dash and run it all through the new dash so our door locks and dome light work again. Bummer.

A good source for new carpet kits is lmc. There factory color and molded. But with kiddos I might go rubber mats insted. Easer to clean. Both of the boys ruined a van and a cars carpets not to mention seats.

how did the 2008 dash fit in a 1998? does it look like it fits? did you have to modify it?
