The next two immediate things will be getting the sideboards installed & debadging it.

I've never been a fan of advertising for any company. I wouldn't mind getting some custom emblems to replace the ram symbols on the front and back.

After that, probably a new set of wheels.

I agree with the badges. im thinking about ordering a pair off of here http://billetbadges.com/photoalbum/72157622133375133 i hear they do great work.

as far as debadging the current ones, do it now lol it makes the truck look so much cleaner and takes next to no time at all

What is the part number for those bilsteins? I've only ever come across the 5100's for our application and these appear to be 5160's?

Finally got the rails in & installed!






I also ordered the $70 dee zee drop in bed liner mentioned in the thread in the review section.

This is one tough liner that really has TONS of grip & Is very thick, but not too heavy and seems built to last. I'm really impressed!

Yeah, they are the 5160s. I will have to get back to you about which ones they are.

I think it looks really nice!

If you don't put the 3M Safety-Walk tape down, your foot will slip off of the round bar on the front. With it, you don't move. I'll have to see if it holds up in rainy/snowy weather.


I'll get another shot of it and show you how they look from the side. Since the rail is so long, you can step on it to reach the rear portion of your truck bed. The pictures on autoanything do not do this rail justice. It's extremely solid & once you figure out how to mount it, you're set & it's very fast.

There's these boomerang mounting brackets you have to slide into a hole under the carriage & turn it so the welded screw faces out. Once I figured that out, it was smooth sailing from there!

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you on that.


Bilstein 46mm Monotube Shock Absorber

I believe that's front & rear, respectfully. Don't quote me on that though. Either way, it should say which is which & you can always contact bilstein directly, like I did.

These are NOT cheap shocks at all. I had to really search around before I found a good deal on them.

The ride is night and day. It softens the ride a heck of a lot. I think there is a tiny bit more roll when turning, but not much. I love the ride.

I can't comment on towing/hauling. I'll be making a 1400 mile trip w/ 1000 lbs + of olympics weights in the bed. That'll be a true test.

I wouldn't mind a set of softer coil & leaf springs, but that's a mod for another day.
