Default newbie from MN with 2001 Ram 2500

Hey guys. I just picked up a 2001 Ram 2500 with the 5.9L/auto with 182k for $1500 cash. I bought it from a lady whose husband had just died and she was going to donate the truck and collect the taxes. It runs and drives perfect, but as you can tell, it needs some front end work, but I have already located a new fender ($100), headlight ($50) and a new used tire ($75). I currently own a well modified 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi as my daily driver. I have previously owned dozens of 3800 GM's as I buy and resell them. I got sick of always having to borrow someone elses truck to haul most of these cars home, so I bought my own truck.

I am new to trucks, but I am not new to internet forums. I am a Moderator over at pontiacbonnevilleclub.com and have been with the club for almost 5 years.

I have a couple issues with the truck, and I'll be posting them in the appropriate sections. At what point do I get BB code enabled for my sig?











and here is my 2000 Bonneville

Yes I have.

Fender off:


old and new:


new fender on:


Then I went and washed it:





Now I just have to wait for my new headlight and tire to arrive in the mail. I'll be on the hunt for a cheap hood/grill & bumper, but its not 100% necessary. I still plan to paint the bottom 4-5" with rubberized undercoating.

Got my tire today, Sam's club put it on for $11.




I also found a bumper, grill, foglights and bug deflector for $200. Going to pick it up tomorrow.
