Lightbulb 2012 Dodge Ram SLT Build Thread

This will be my build thread for my 2012 Dodge Ram SLT. If you saw my 'Newbie Check-In' I traded in my 2004 Ford F150 FX4 with 118K miles, for this one with 40K. I go to school in Colorado, Go Buffs!, but came back to Texas for the summer. I look forward to building this truck up, learning from you guys, and hopefully helping a few of y'all along the way!










Looking to go with the Silver & Black offroad theme.

First step is to take the Ram 1500 Badges off, I started today, but it's quite the job, even using fishing line and Goo Gone. Hopefully i'll get that done and have some pictures up tomorrow!

Edit: Presoaked them with Goo Gone then sawed with fishing line to pull them off. The key is to get a little of the 3M tape up and pull at a 45 degree angle, or just along the door and they come right off with minimal residue. Pictures will be up tomorrow, debating whether to take the 5.7 Hemi decal off.

You might try a heat gun to remove any insignias. Look forward to see what you do to her.

Well I got the RAM 1500 off from both sides, there is little residue left, but nothing a little more elbow grease can't handle.





I'm trying to decide whether to take of the HEMI emblems, as well as the SLT and 4x4 of the tailgate, what's y'all's opinion?

Looks good man

I vote keep the Hemi badges on the fenders. I think the tailgate looks good with and without.
