Default DeepCherry's Outdoorsman Build

Hello Everybody!

This is my 2011 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman CCSB I bought in May 0f 2014. The current exhaust set up and nerf bars were on the truck when I bought it. Since I have been having fun with this beast and the modding progress is slowly starting to speed up, I better get ahead on the build thread. I will try to back track and post what has already been done. Enjoy!


Current Mods:
Extang Tri-fold cover
Debagded except for the hemi emblems... for now
Deleted pillar vinyl
AVS visors
Weston nerf bars
Painted Front/Rear Ram heads
Painted exhaust tips
HBS 2" level
Y-pipe back exhaust
Vararam Intake
Hemifever 91 octane tune

Future plans:
35x12.5 on 18's or 20's depending on what I find
Finish eliminating all chrome on the truck inside and out
Tint tails and 3rd brake light
Tint fogs
Tint windows
Retroshop black headlights
Moe's 87mm throttle body
180 deg thermostat
Long tube headers w/ catless Y-pipe
2800 stall torque converter
Zone 4" lift
Curved light bar... or two LOL

More mods will be added later, of course.

After I brought the truck home



After debadging







Extang tri-fold cover

Next came the Vararam intake. I wasn't very happy with the initial fitment, but I got a great deal on it used so I just did what I do best and made it work for what I wanted it to do.

First: initial install and troubleshoot



Second: Make a bracket to build the driver's side out and even the front air scoop





Third: Modify the front cover from the grill to the radiator.



Last: install - what I did not take a pic of was the 1x4 x3/4" stiff foam under between the scoop and the radiator to keep things from shifting and dropping.

Then came the HBS 2" level and some painting. You will notice that the ceiling is very low on the garage, but what you cant see is that I had to cut the arm off of the garage door bracket to get the truck back out after a basic level. LOL





Took the corroded license plate frame and painted it. I liked the design (including the swing down bolt covers), but did not like the chrome. Hard to find a good looking black frame anymore.



Painted the Ram heads on the front and rear as well as the exhaust tips (until I get some new powder coated black ones). Also deleted the vinyl between the door pillars.
