Default My 2010 TRX4 Mods

I purchased my used 2010 Ram 1500 TRX4 about a month ago (while deployed to Afghanistan). I returned about 3 days ago, and I have started making mods so that I can call it my own. Below are before and after pictures of each mod that i've made. With more to come. Let me know what you think!

1)Dupli-Color Shadow painted Emblems and Exhaust Tips

I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone that's wanting to black out their truck easily. Thanks to brad12kx for his write up on it! That thread is HERE

Grille Emblem before and after:





RAM lettering before and after (may still debadge the sides at a later date, I can't decide......):






Tailgate Emblem before and after:





2) Flowmaster 50 Series HD Dual Exhaust

This exhaust sounds perfect on my truck. It has a nice low growl when you start the engine and sounds great when I get on the throttle. I wanted an exhaust that wasn't TOO loud. If you're looking for the same, then this is the Exhaust for you!



3) B-Light Bed Lighting and Plasmaglow LED Footwell Lights with Plasmaglow Activator Switches

This is a great mod. I've done this to previous vehicles and will continue to do it on all future vehicles. I feel so "in the dark" in vehicles without them. I have not been able to take pictures at night yet, but will post them as soon as I can.

4) 10% Tinted Windows

The truck is at the shop this afternoon getting the tint applied. I will post these pictures as soon as I get a chance.


That's all for now, but feel free to let me know of any future mods that you might suggest! I am very open minded. For those of you that are still here, thanks for reading and look for more to come!

Sharp looking truck. Questions about your led's? did you just do foot well or did you also change the interior lights over to led?

At the moment I've just installed the footwell lights and bed lights, but I am planning on replacing all interior lights and exterior lights (license plate, reverse, third brake cargo light). I also plan on installing HID headlights.

EDIT/WARNING

Be very cautious when applying duplicolor shadow to exhaust tips!! The label says that it is safe, but after my first trip, I now have GOLDEN exhaust tips! Looks like the duplicolor could not stand the heat!

I like the direction your heading with your mods.

The exhaust tip issue is interesting (in a not so warm and fussy kind of way). Did you take some pics of the Golden tips??

I have not yet! But I will tomorrow... It's an interesting look to say the least lol but I plan on aggressively cleaning/re-prepping then re-painting with black header paint (rated for 1300-2000 degrees!)

Header paint will work.
