Got the call and picked her up last night! Very blessed...found a buyer for mine and did dealer in and out to get some of the credits! Great deal.

A few quick photos at the dealer below!

After the Texas Invitational (I'm not racing a buddy is I'm just "pit crew") I will knock out the yard work and then get on the truck...trim off the "1500" on both sides. Dip the remaining lettering...pull the tips off and semi-gloss black heat paint them both and reinstall.

On order is a black grille, Mag14" and Y, Weathertech mats and tow hooks. These will be on this month along with tint early this week all around 35% (windshield light tint also) and Line-X bedliner this week as well. After a bit of recovery from these expenses I will get "phase 2" done and get spacers, Bilsteins and tires as well as any performance equip available (tuner, CAI and ported tb).
Then near end of summer I will pickup a seat heater kit and install that for the lady...might do some custom hood wrap similar looking to what I did on my Challenger.

Initial impressions...I love it! Still needs to break in but seems like a GREAT truck! Electronics are great. Runs and drives awesome. Very impressed so far. Negatives, not a fan of the rotary as expected but I will soon be used to it.The Alpine system doesn't sound as good as I thought it would but still pretty good. Already got a speeding ticket this morning! The officer said she really liked my truck and "at least you already know it goes FAST" lol...that doesn't help much. So I get to pay that out of my mod fun money...I should have known better I bet there is a cop on that stretch about half the time I drive down. Oh well!

As planned, did the tint at 35% all around. Dipped the emblems and exhaust tips. Removed the "1500" and did the spray in liner. After this...had a setback and the trans was stuck in 1st gear with 315 miles on it. Called a tow truck to bring it to the dealer and they reset the computer which showed "wrong gear ratio" code...and it was fine. Hope it doesn't happen again!

I have been out of town for work/family for an entire week but I understand a few things came in for me: Magnaflow Y pipe and 18", Bilstein 5100s (all 4), 1/4" wheel spacers, Mopar tow hooks, black grill and Weathertech mats.

So early next week I will order CAI and ported TB...and get the grill swapped out, install the tow hooks and Magnaflow and put the mats in. In a month or so I will put the Bilstein level kit on, 35" tires and install the CAI and TB at the same time. Will post some update pics asap!

Very nice truck! Red makes our truck look amazing. Everyone stares
Good choice with the Vararam, I'm very happy with mine. Installing that and my throttlebody was extremely easy.
Do you plan on tinting the taillights?
You'll love how the mds help! I went with BullyDog though :P

Yes I love the color. This is my 3rd Ram in a row this color. Did black once and it was ok but wanted red again.
Waiting to confirm the Vararam is ok on a 2013 4x4 with 8 speed and active grille shutters. Seems to be issues w this combo. But getting one once resolved as well as a tb. Probably next month.
I don't plan to tint the tails right now. Next is install the Magnaflow 18" and Y that has been in my office for a week!!

OK - got the truck back with a whole new ZF trans in it so hope to be DONE with issues! Had the exhaust redone custom cat back...Magnaflow Y into Magnaflow 18" to dual out stock pipe from there and stock tips (for now- looking for black 4-5" replacements).

Also did the Bilstein 5100s all around, 2.1" lift front and a TGC .75" spacer in the rear. Looks about level but there is a 1" difference right now it seems...perfect rake! I have 7" clearance over the front stock tires and 8" in the rear. New tires will soak up .75" of that next week so will be about stock looking rear fender space and about 1.2" added front clearance so SHOULD look right as if the 35s belong on there!

Had the grille swapped to a black one and tow hooks installed. Will do tires next week when they come in - 35x12.50 Toyo Open Country AT. Have custom made hub and wheel centric spacers that are about 3/8" thick (.375 looks like as evidently you can't have hub AND wheel centric at only .25") - I am not that comfy with daily driver having nearly half an inch spacers on it though...but could only be hub centric if I went with 1/4" which maybe I will get a set and try...I had my last set only hub centric and they were ok for years.

Thanks! Yeah it looks great even without the taller rubber yet! I like how it sits - should be about this high from the factory for a 4wd!

As for the Magnaflow 18" and Y pipe...just what I was looking for! Deeper idle. Growl on the pedal. Very little drone (kept the resonators on). I think the 14" would not have been what I would consider loud but more than I was seeking on this particular truck at this time. Going back to get the tips pushed back to be flush with the bumper.
