Cool Hey new guy with a hatred for dodge.... untill now...!!

Hey guys my name is denver new to the forum and just bought me my third dodge. I bought a 1999 dodge ram 2500 V10 5speed with 94k miles anyone know of any problems i need to look out for?
I have owned two dodge 1500 in the past both transmissions were crap and one had to replace every line from rust after that experiance i switched to ford for awhile but nothing will top this v10 dodge this thing is PISSED!!! i have only had it for a month now and i threw on a cold air intake from k/n and a jet chip in the ecu and modded the exhaust by removing the cats and buying a magnaflow 2 to 1 muffler with a 3 inch outlet have not decided where im running the tail to yet but i like it hidden under the bed...
I have had one problem so far my passenger headlight has condensation real bad and i either want to fix that or buy a new set any suggestions? i have a 4 inch lift kit on the way now and plan to add 7 inches to that by the end of summer i also need a set of wheels any suggestions? i have a old set of super swampers from my old dodge that are 39 x 15x15 i have a new set on my truck now goodyear allterrains 285x75x16 if anyone might be interested in the stock wheels with these tires....

GIVE ME A SHOUT LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW!!!


the above is when i bought it below is the way it sits now

Looks good. For the headlight, I'd say you need to get a new set if they're also badly yellowed. The driverside looks pretty clear to me, so you might try just drilling a small hole to let the water vapour escape when the light heats up the water.

It's not terribly hard to pull the lens off of a truck light. I got a buddy who did it. Just youtube it and get a cheap headlight to practice on once so you don't melt your stocker... The important thing is that you get it resealed properly or you're f-ed and gotta do it again. It's a long process, but not terribly hard. Unless these are not glued headlights, then I'm flat out wrong...

Cool Its Pissed!

So why did you piss your truck off. I think on every Dodge vehcile I have had it had a problem with some light getting water in it. Neon, Caliber, Durango, etc... NIce truck by the way. I have not had a older Ram, but I would say just drill the hole and you can cap it with something afterwards, but leave it "openable" so you can remove it if you get some more water in there. I think once you "break the seal" you are gonna get it in there anyway so better to do that unless you really want to remove the bruch guard and the light itself.

So I am assuming that being "pissed" is a good thing!

Enjoy your truck and welcome to the forum
