Default Got one yesterday

Hi Guys,

Newbie here. I just bought this truck yesterday. Black/Black. Took it to Vengeance racing today in Atlanta, GA. They built my 2002 Camaro SS. Mike (tuner/master mechanic) is 6' 3'' and comfortably sat in the back with plenty of room. Air ride is amazing, fit and finish is amazing. Took off traction control and smoked the tires. I love this truck. Traded in my 2012 Ford F-150 Platinum w/17000 miles ecoboost (should be ecobust). The Ram is already 13.4 mpg. Ecobust was 12.6 mpg. I love this truck. Now need to find out small combo's to tap into that hemi. I already have some ideas.

cj,
need you help! dealer needs a vin # for the 2013 limited so i can order the wood grain steering wheel for my 2012 limited. can you help me out? i guess he needs my VIN and a 2013 VIN # he can pull up and compare for part order. i am in iowa city, iowa, originally from illinois. you got a nice dealer in roanoke (i have been there) close to my home town. how do you like your new baby? thanks and please let me know so i can get this on order. i don't think the limited's are offered this year unless special order? i know i got mine in july 2012 and it's almost october already. -tim

This morning I swamped the OEM Chrome tail lights for the OEM Sport tail lights. I liked the chrome, but not on the black truck.

Chris, you definitely made the right move. The new tail lights are perfectly suited to the black truck. The Limited tail lights are great on silver but the Sport look better on black. The truck looks great!

looks way better, that's what should be on there in the first place. The truck makers are going chrome crazy now a days. thank god Ram has the sport with no chrome

the sport has great lights from and back..

the sport headlights are big money though if you buy them afterwords

I never did like a huge limited badge on trucks though. I had one on my tundra I as had the limited trim.

I mean what's it limited to, towing, hauling, power? I know it's just a higher trim name but "limited" is not what comes to mind with a big full size truck.

I would de-badge the back if I had that one

Yeah I'm still contemplating changing out the headlights. Cost is $645 for the pair minus whatever I could sell mine for. I am leaving the chrome grill so not sure how the lights would next to the grill.

I am actually ok with the Limited badge. I do like the look of a little chrome.

What did you pay for the lights? I have Blackgold Longhorn and would have rather gotten the Sport lights since mine is so dark. The chrome on mine stands out almost as much as on yours. Also, did you have to buy the entire light assembly or just the outer red cover? How about part numbers? If the price is reasonable, I might do that to mine. I would also like the Sport headlights but like your the price is a little higher than I'd be willing to go. Maybe someone with a Silver or White Sport might want to swap their dark lights to my chrome ones? Another consideration is changing my outer grill surround for the painted one and painting it Blackgold. I'd keep my Longhorn chrome inserts though since I do like them. I just want to cut down on the chrome. Final thing I'm tossing around is having the gold on my Ram painted Blackgold if I can get it done for a reasonable price. Limited wasn't an option when I ordered mine in January otherwise I would have went that route. I hate chrome!

I bought them off of another forum member for $275. you have to buy the entire light assembly. The numbers are 68093080AB and 68093081AB. Mopar online sells a kit, but our trucks don't need the harness.
