Nice Looking Truck!!! I always think the 1st mod should be getting the truck sounding good with a Magnaflow or Flowmaster!!!

I oppose plasti dipping wheels personally, such a nice brand new truck, no need to put cheesy plasti dip on. eventually at some point it'll start to peel off and look like shit until you re spray. the stock wheels look great, but if you want black, get aftermarket wheels.

beautiful truck!

I love the wheels as is.....I used plastidip on my maxima wheels and it worked great. So far my only mods are drop-in k&n, 5% tint all the way around, shorty antenna, mufflex muffler delete, and magnaflow y pipe all of which I have already had installed. The truck rumbles but i think my 05' with the dumped exhaust sounded better. Thanks for all the compliments! BTW, I'm halfway between Chattanooga and Nashville in the Tullahoma area AKA Trailerhoma lol

I tend to agree, get a nice exhaust for that sweet Red ticket getter.

Nice truck man.

It's loud as hell with the muffler delete. My 05' with the magnaflow y pipe and a 10 series flow dumped had a little smoother, racier sound. The 13 definately is deeper it's just when you get on it, it gets raspy. Since the stock bumper has the cutout for dual tips, I'll leave it as is, otherwise, I like the dumped exhaust sound much better. I also had the dealer debadge the Ram 1500 on the doors when I took delivery because it was just gaudy lol

Dip the emblems, then get some color match paint for the background of the emblem. The chrome does look good, but try dipping them black. If you like the look, then you can invest the cash on some black wheels. Better to see how it looks first before dropping a couple large on new wheels.

As far as the exterior goes, I'm more into the stock sleeper look. I'm more interested in the performance mods but I'm going to wait until Superchips makes a flashpaq that's useable on this truck. The flashpaq on my 05' made a night and day difference with the truck especially with the trans tuning.
