Default 2012 R/T build log/parts list.

Picking up the new truck next weekend when I get home. Here's what's ordered as of now.

Starting with a 2012 Dodge Ram R/T


I'm having real hell finding the wheels I want to fit the way I want them to so it's getting these for now while I search. These are temporary...what I want will probably have to be built and is gonna take a while.


Tires are Pirelli Scorpion Zero in 305/35/22


Of course it's getting lowered so I ordered the McGaughy's 2/4 drop kit that I'll modify for about a 3/5


Can't not have shocks...so I went with single adjustable QA1's


Seems kinda silly to do all that work and leave stock sway bars on it...so Hellwig's are going on front and rear.


Don't wanna do all that and have a spongy rear suspension with rubber bushings...so I called up Spohn Performance.
Adjustable panhard bar.


And better upper and lower control arms.



And last but not least...SSBC's 14" front brake kit with 4 piston calipers along with matching slotted stock size rear rotors.



That's the suspension list for now. I want rear SSBC calipers but those are a long way out so stock will have to do for now.

Stereo/interior will be the second big part of the project followed by underhood show mods then motor mods. I need to call Billet Technologies this week...I'm gonna basically order their whole catalog for this truck.

Here's the audio breakdown. Using the OEM head unit...it's so integrated into the truck I don't wanna lose any of those functions.
The processor will be Rockford Fosgate's new 3Sixty.3. I'm on a waiting list for one now.


The laptop tuning ability looks really fun.


Amplifiers are my new Audio System X-Ion pieces.
The 3 way active front stage will run off the 70.6


Sub will get 1480 watts from the 280.2


Front stage will be my Focal 165 KRX3 set with the midranges and tweeters in the a-pillars and midbass in the doors.


Sub will be my JL Audio 12W6v2 until the W6v3's are released.


I'm undecided on wiring and interconnects yet....probably Street Wires like I've always used in the past. The whole cab will get CLD tiles, ensolite and MLV to deaden and dampen it.

Check out knukconceptz they have great wiring as well. I can't wait to see the truck in progress.

I called hellwig about sway bars for my truck and they said they didn't make them for a lowered truck. I tried to ask what a 2/4 drop did to change the sway bars and they again told me that they will not work. I'm confused on why they wouldn't. If those will work with a 12 crew cab sport could you PM me price and where you picked them up at.

They'll work fine. You just need shorter end links. That's one reason I picked the drop kit I did...it comes with them.

This was my first choice of wheels...unfortunately they can't be drilled at 5x139 so I'm still hunting. Finding a 2 piece forged wheel is harder than I thought....I wanna stay away from 3 piece wheels and their leak issues. Everything I'm finding is in the 11-1500 dollar per wheel range. At some point it's just stupid...
These are only 500 per wheel. I can live with that....they just won't drill them for me.

Do you not like the SRT wheels?
I like the wheels above but they look like BMW wheels. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I like the SRT10 wheels...always have. They're definitely temporary though.
I wanna go for a Pro Touring build style. I'll be using the same dimensions as the SRT wheels because I like the fit....I just want something out of the ordinary for wheels.
I'm waiting to hear back from Hot Rods by Boyd about these HR-1o wheels...I'm liking them a lot.
