Default 2012sport's build

I purchased my truck in December and have slowly made some progress. Just had a kid in January so money has been short and the wife says other things must come first.

Damn rake...



I

I will post up some pics to show where I am now tomorrow. It didn't take me long after the purchase to get my hands on some plasti dip.

Just put Bilstein 5100's on tonight and tomorrow is a RCX 1.25 Body Lift and TGC 1.5" spacer. I will take pics after each step is completed. Then I'll just need some tires

I am so pissed right now
So today was the day to do my version of the lift. Bilstein 5100's(got bored and did them last night), 1.5" TGC spacer, and the Rough Country 1.25" body lift.

So I get to my parents garage and since I have done one before, I went ahead and took both bumpers off and got started removing all the bolts and making proper modifications. The came time to pull the factory mounts and knock out the studs...Done. So I go to grab the spacers from the box for the right side as it was that time...and they weren't frickin there. RC forgot to package the damn things and silly me thinking everything would be there never even checked until this point.

So here I am...ticked just waiting for tomorrow when I can call and yell at someone. Wasted my entire day along with my dads and a buddies. And I had to rig the passenger side body mounts back into place since I had already knocked the factory studs out of them.

.....VERY DISAPOINTED. Is this a normal thing with RC or just a fluke?

I will try and take some better pics when it is not raining and lighter out with the bilsteins and spacer in there. Don't think I got 1.5 out of the rear spacer though.

And for money spent so far...

Weathertech floor liners
Retroshop 55w 6k Digital headlights
DDM 55w 6k Digital fog lights (Much more blue than retro's)
Dark Housing Headlights
HVT tinted tail lights
Plasti dipped chrome grill inserts and Eblem
Bilstein 5100 adjustables
1.5" TGC rear spacer

Near future mods...
Catch can
1.25" RC Body Lift....If I get the frickin parts!
Plasti dip rims and all badges...maybe remove some.
Air bags for the rear

Future future mods....

Fender flares
TIRES...at the top of my list, but realistically a ways off.
Maybe some different rims.
Didn't care about the ram hood when I got the truck, but now I like it so maybe something with the hood.


Sometime I may also redo my factory headlights with red housing and projector.

Here are a few updated pics. In these pics the truck has the front Bilsteins set at 2.8 and a rear TGC 1.5" coil spacer. Got the correct parts for the body lift finally, but haven't had time to do it.

Yesterday I got my hands on a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers 275/65/20. Not the size I want, but for $150 with 60% tread left...I couldn't let them go.
