thanks. im planning on going even darker (to match black grill) and add yellow bulbs, and yellow led behind the grill. going to put some off-road lights in the grill also to use at night. also getting the sport bumper, so will use the fogs also. which lights do you have in the grill... would you have gone brighter??

[QUOTE=Jerkbait;336657] 33" bridgestone dueler revo 2 all terrains.


33" Dueler Revo 2 All Terrains on the stock 17" Allow rims.. I painted them black myself and added some red eyes to the rams in the center.



I think we just became best friends, Jerkbait!! Lol, I just picked up a 2009 QC Ram SLT and was thinking that I just want to level it out and add more aggressive tires to the stock rims. How does it ride now with the bigger tires? Any regrets or advice? Love the truck! Thanks in advance for any input!

truck rides great.. pretty much like the stock ride. little decrease in mpg but thats about it. my advise would be to get a/t and not m/t cause m/t arent good in snow.. the snow gets packed in the treads.. unless ur going off roading stick with a/t.. and also i got 33's i would go with 35's.

Default My '09 Ram

Well, she's mostly stock but I have a few mods in mind. Since these pics, she's been debadged and a Thrush Turbo muffler has installed. I just received my Superchips Flashpaq Tuner today and will do that in the morning. I have a Kurgo Wonder Dog hammock coming for when the pup goes for rides and AirRide bags for when I'm hauling or towing. I am looking into a BedRug and a billet grille, but those probably won't happen until after the Holidays. And, I am always looking for something to mod her with!!!





This is one of the reasons I bought the Ram, to haul my project toy. Of course, nothing BUT a Ram would do!!!

I believe they are Mopar from the dealer. I bought this Ram used and they were already on. Sorry, not much help. Hopefully someone else knows for sure.

They look great on your truck! I checked with my Mopar parts guy at the dealership, and he had no clue where to get them!

You have the style I like, but I havn't found any like them yet.

-Westin Chrome Nerfs, had 6000k HID's but blew a ballast this morning, so for the forseeable future I am back to Sylvania Silverstar Ultra's... Mopar bedliner (is that a mod? LOL)...K&N Drop-in air filter...thats really about it unless you count tires, wiper blades, and things like that. I dont consider replacing tires with the same type/size a mod, nor wiper blades, even though rain-x latitudes are the Shiiat.
