Default Kcbigbadram 2014 1500 crew cab limited

Decided to go ahead and start a build thread for the new truck. Truck is a 2014 1500 limited crew cab. Easily the most loaded vehicle I've ever owned.

Here's a pic fresh off the dealer lot



First couple mods were window tint (supposed to be 15%, but seems much lighter. Probably gonna have them redone), shorty antenna, and debadged.


Future plans include:
Undercover lux- will be installed Monday
Remove steps- this will happen very soon. Couple weeks at the most
Color matched grill and mirrors- new grill is on the way then will need paint. Still trying to find new mirrors
Magnaflow exhaust- haven't decided if I'm doing just a muffler swap or whole cat -back exhaust.
Headlghts/ tail lights- undecided, but the chrome must go


That's about all I have planned for now. I will of course update this thread as I add more to the truck

Looks good and yes that doesn't seem like 15% tint. What are you doing with the stock grill?

I'd honestly just upgrade the muffler and 5" tips to save money. That's what I did. It cost me $270 all said and done, but that was with a great deal on the tips. Otherwise probably another $125 w/new tips.

Good looking truck... the tint must be a Missouri thing. I wanted 15% on mine as well, however it isn't quite as dark as I hoped.

I will be selling the stock grill once my new one is on.

I'm leaning toward just the muffler and tips also. Had a quote for 175 to do the muffler and install yesterday forgot to ask about tips.

I had to find a new shop this time because my normal guy went out of business. My last truck had 20% on it and I actually think it seemed darker. Other than that the new place did a really good job thoug.

Forgot to put this in 1st post. Just a pic with the badges off the tailgate

Throw me a PM when you decide. I'm thinking about changing out to the Limited Grill.

Got the undercover lux installed today and I'm very happy.


Overall seems like a great cover and I really like how light it is. Now I gotta take the badges off it.

Looking forward, loved Big Red. I might be interested in the grill too.
