Default New Guy

Hey guys, my name is Kyle and clearly I'm new to the forums, thought I would check it out to find the best aftermarket products and how-to tips from fellow Ram owners. This is my first Dodge product (my father has owned multiple Dodge vehicles in the past, they come highly recommended, the trucks at least), and it is my 2nd vehicle. I used to own a mazda 3 sport, was quick and fun but I am moving out to Edmonton, Alberta (from Ottawa, Ontario) and I need something a little bigger, with a little more man-power.

Well, thats the intro to me, so here is the truck:


2005 Dodge Ram SLT Quad Cab with the Magnum V8 { not 4WD }



Truck is currently in Alberta, in my dad's driveway as I just fractured my hip mountain biking so I am out of commish for a while.

Surprised you got a 2WD in alberta. Having a 4WD would really come in handy in the winters. Welcome to the forums though, I'm sure you'll enjoy the truck. Any plans for upgrades?

Welcome to RamForumZ!!! Fractured your hip? Ouch... Nice upgrade from the Mazda 3 though! Is that a Thunder Road edition? Looks like it has the side steps...

No it isn't the thunder road edition, the side steps are add-ons from the dealership, but it has an infinity sound system and the 20" wheels.

I would love to have a 4wd, but to be honest, the price was IMPOSSIBLE to give up on, honestly. Felt like stealing the truck, and with only 60,000kms on it, and knowing the old owner quite well (fathers are the best) the truck is in fantastic condition.

The only issue its ever had was front-end bearings (from what i heard, front end weakness is common, and the extended warrantee is key!!!) and since then she's run just fine.

As far as mods, I am not too sure what I am looking at doing. My 3 had been turbo'd, and track-readied, so I love making my vehicle my own, the Ram will be no exception. First off I am going to be looking into exhaust, to give it a meaner growl. The truck is going to be primarily a sporty-type, so no big gnarly tires, I'll be looking into other things and reading up on some of the rides on here.

Thanks for the welcome guys, glasd to be here!
