Default Thanks for all the replies!

Wow thanks for all the responses. I do plan on some mods. nothing too crazy. Cold air intake, cat back exhaust, programmer etc. I also want to do a leveling kit with a little be larger tire. On my first Laramie since I ordered it new I had them put wheels on it from a Sport (the chrome five spoke). My new Laramie has the true Laramie wheels and I hate them. I would love to find someone to trade, if not I'll just sell these and buy some aftermarket. The dealer also intalled full length nerf bars and I'm not sure I'm going to keep those either. Their cool but it makes the truck look like it's sitting too low.

I'll post pics of my destoyed baby tonight. I couldn't even bring my self to buy the same color, how screwed up is that!?!

Definitely plans but nothing too radical. I spend a lot of time on the interstate, about 3k miles a month. I plan cold air intake, programmer, and cat back exhaust. Cat back can't bee too extreme because i'm on the phone much of the time driving . I want to do at least a leveling kit if not raise the back 2" as well and little bit bigger tires. Not too big because again if I get into a strictly off road tread their too noisy when I'm in the truck for hours at a time on the phone. The dealership installed nerf bars on it that I may remove because they make the truck look like it's sitting too low....don't know for sure. I also hate the Laramie wheels!!! Since I ordered my first one from the factory I had them put the 5-star rims from the "Sports" on it and I like it much better.

I was on the interstate and run off the road by a semi. I had my cruise control set on 75mph when it happened and the police estimated that I hit the tree at 65-70mph.

BTW my avatar is a Ram with his horn through the I65 sign and in his mouth is the mile marker 162 sign. This is where the accident occurred.
