Default FRD2RAMBLD!!! Piiicccsssssss!!!!

So I'm starting my build thread in hopes that it helps me to do everything I want done as fast as possible. Money permitting!!! And I'm sure that the vision I have in my head will change before I reach the end, but I think I'm off to a pretty good start!!

The only pic I have of my naked Ram.


The first mod was the 50 series Flowmaster. Not really a pic for that. I'll post a video later. Next was my S&B CAI. Great intake IMHO. It fits like it should've come from the factory, and the increased throttle response is amazing. Throttle response was the one thing I was disappointed in when I got the truck, but this really made it better.

Great mod, I'm looking at buying one tomorrow. Love the look of it.

Next were the 55watt 8k HIDs from Retro Solutions. I didn't really notice how poor the light output was until I put these in. I've never had upgraded lights so I dint really notice the difference until the first time I drove at night. WOW!!! Now I'll have to upgrade all future vehicles!!


The camera on my phone isn't the best, sorry.
Ballast..

Best place I could find to mount these.


After that I got excited about wiring, so I got the DBA-ALL remote start. As those of you who have installed these know, it was too exciting to instal. Literally took me ten minutes.

How about a little history? Here's the last Ford I had before my RAM! I really did love this last Ford. It was a 2005 F-250 Harley Davidson. It was the 6.0 turbo diesel. Yes, the one with the EGR and head problem. Luckily for me I got to experience both! On the other hand, this was my first diesel truck and I went out and got a Hypertech tuner right away. I couldn't believe what that 5 minute instal did to that truck. It went from a torquey turd to the FASTEST thing I've ever had the pleasure of driving!! Here are a few pics I snapped just before I traded her.

The instal wasn't too bad. It took me just over 2 hours. Mostly because I didn't have a firm grasp on how to get these headlights out. Dodge really made that difficult compared to other cars. Next was figuring out where to mount everything and run the wires. I suggest planning it out before hand. The light output is definitely worth it. Good luck!!
