Default AM I Crazy?????

Here is my plan. 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab Laramie.
1) Pro Comp 6" lift
2) Pro Comp Xtreme Alloys 6047 Chrome 17x 8.5
3)Toyo Open Country Mud Terrain 35/12.50R/17
4)BFI Cold Air Intake
5)Mufflex 18"
6)Chrome side steps
7) Leer XQ cap/ THule2 roof racks

Does that sound like madness. I would appreciate any advise or recomendations. I'm new to the Ram community and this forum....

It's your money . Spend as you feel you need to . Looks like you'll need some engine mods afterwards to turn over those monsters .

It's the lift I'm worried about..Any nightmare stories. What sort of engine mods ? It has a 5.7 Hemi with 3.92 gears. I thought with the CAI and exhaust I'd be ok..

No , Pro comp sells a quality piece . I'm sure they've done their research . Is there a kit available for the 2010's already ?

That's what I'm told. Do you think a Motor should be broken in before a CAI is installed?

Cool , keep us posted . You doing the install yourself ? If you do , think about doing a how to do step by step and take some pics of the install process . I'm sure you'll have alot of peoples attention .

I do many thing OK but working on a new truck is not one of them. Won't know for a few days If I'm taking the plunge.

It looks like a solid set up, and the ProComps are a high quality kit. I haven't heard about a break in period required for a CAI before, so I don't see why not, just have to have one availiable.

Keep us in the loop, sounds like a cool build.

If I can't get a BFI CAI what would be a close second choice ?

Well, you can throw a K&N in for now until the BFI comes out if you dont mind spending the money, or be patient. Or you can try the homebuilt idea that has been floating around until the BFI comes out.
