Default My 2008 build

Recently I have come across a few people that have started threads dedicated to the progress of their truck from the time they bought it to the present. Well Maddog and Wildcat ( sounds like a cartoon) have inspired me so I thought I would do the same for my truck.

This is what my truck looked like the day I brought it home. Just like about 50 other Rams in town.

Shortly after this I was wanting to change the appearance of my truck and this is when I discovered the Forum. I decided to make some changes and call them my Christmas present to my self. I added a Xtang Trifecta tonneau cover, tinted the windows and got vinyl graphics for the hood and tail.

Next came the fog lights and I added mesh to the grill.

By now I had started reading a lot about lighting and thought that could be my next mod, which turned out great.Loved the new look. I added Halo projectors to the front and a set of LED tails.

Christmas was fast approaching again and I was in need of another good Christmas gift. I decided on a new hood. I sent out a thread asking members for different suggestions for hoods and after a lot of deliberation I made my decision. I picked the 440 six-pack hood.

Once again I turned to the members because I wasn't sure how to paint it, I was given several different options. The final decision took a while and it was not til about 4 months after getting the hood that I finally got it painted along with the grill to match. At the same time I also decided that I wanted some of the older style rims because they would go with the old muscle car styling I was looking for.

Well now it was time to work on performance, I had put an 18" Magnaflow on earlier and now I needed a CAI. Being that I had the functional ram air hood I started looking for a system that would work with that. What I found was an APM Ramair system.

And to make it all work, next came the Diablosport Preditor. Made a few changes and now the performance matches the looks...For me anyway.

Now that I had the majority of the larger mods out of the way it is time to start the shall we say "finishing" touches. I decided that it was time to upgrade the stereo. Nothing fancy, or loud, just wanted to be able to use the music on the phone and the bluetooth so i can go hands free.

[IMG][/IMG]

and today I finally got around to cleaning up the looks by de-badging the truck.

Well that is all that I can think of. I have another mod sitting in the basement waiting to get installed. However I have heard so many horror stories that I have been Leary to install it.

Awesome thread, Richard!!!!

I like everything you've done.

Don't be leery about the HID's...go for it and see if they work. My horror story may not be your story, bud. So get after it!

And I am still working on my headlights but I think I've come up with a solution, finally. "Think" is the operative word....nothing's been tested yet. But, if it does, I'll post it up in my mod thread!

Nice work on the truck and the thread. That deserves some beans!
