Talking My new baby

Hello forum members/ fellow ram owners. I kind of went out of order and forgot to do my newbie check in. I have already made a few posts and put up pictures. But anyway, about me and mine.

I'm the typical 28 year old man who loves his family and hates his factory job and babies his rides like they were one of his kids. Just got my new kid a few weeks ago and i'm already looking to change her food. (oil) lol. I want to switch everything over to synthetic but still have that feeling in my stomach that it might be a bad idea since it's already set in with the dino. Kind of like do i get my kid a flu shot or not?? Going to do the simple mods probably air, exhaust and programmer. Short of pulling the engine out and rebuilding it i handle all my repairs or at least all that i can. My new baby was born in 2000 so about ten years old now. She doesn't wet the driveway at night which is nice. Got 108k on her right now , was very well taken care of. Shes got all the luxury inside and all the HD out side (4x4 5.9L). Took the truck to the local dodge dealership before i adopted her and had them pull the build sheet to see what all she came with and the mechanic looked up her shirt and under her dress as was impressed how clean she was. Buy the Way THE BUILD SHEET IS A GOOD IDEA IF YOU LOOKING TO BUY A USED TRUCK.
Only problem i have right now is the dash has a hole in it. Googled the problem and found it that is was common for this truck and i have located replacements on ebay. Unless someone knows a better place or idea i guess i'll just get the cap cover. Any tips, mods, do's or don'ts you got let me know.

Looks clean as a whistle. You treat her right and she'll treat you right back. I love that body style of the Rams.
