No. I actually have two different bars stacked on top of each other. Both are oracle. They took two smd strips and soldered them together. They did this for both bars. I've heard really good things about the Recon though. Actually, I haven't heard anything bad about anything they produce...

Do you mean the hood stripes I have on there now or something else?

Default New Mods...

Okay, so I enlisted some help from 916Timmy today and finally finished some mods I have wanted to do for a while...

MGP Caliper Covers-
I will be honest I am not impressed with these. Maybe I got a bad set, but they don't cover the whole caliper in the rear and I have one rubbing in the front that I will attend to once by rotors cool off. As far as looks go these are glorious as Tim would say. Here's how to do it...

TOOLS NEEDED-
Jack
Stand
8mm socket wrench
Whatever you need to get your wheels off(I have a locking lugnut, and need extensions due to the deep well to get to the lugnuts)...

The cover


Center cap off


HOLY COW THAT WHEEL IS HEAVY!!!


Doesn't quite cover the whole rear caliper


Installed



Very simple install, just slide brackets onto the caliper and screw down a 8mm nut onto the bracket.

Default More Mods...

Fastman TB-
I plan on doing some engine work in the future when the tuners come out so I got the larger tb. It is bored to 84mm all the way thru and has a larger butterfly with the bar relocated to the back of the tb. I know I didn't need it now, but I had it and wanted it on. LOL.

Tools needed:
8mm socket wrench

First off, I disconnect the battery on everything I do. I know you don't need to, but if I do it every time I don't forget it that one time I do. After that I disconnected the the intake sensor and pulled my CAI off the tb. I also removed the engine hat.


Disconnect the tb harness, and take out the 4 bolts holding it. They are 8mm heads. It's that simple! Pic of the old tb next to the new tb

Backside

New one bolted back in


Very simple mod! I don't know if I will tell a difference in the truck since I don't have a tuner. Dan said I may even lose some low end, but I should gain top end. I guess there is one way to find out. If I do I can always put my stock one back in untill the tuner...


BT Catch Can-
This is how lazy I've been since it's gotten hot. I have had this bolted in and ready to go and never hooked it up because it was late and I was hot and tired. I know. I know. Sad. I got it. One of the reasons I wanted Tim to come over and help me. I knew I couldn't back out of it then. ha ha. Anyway, there are better threads for this install and we were getting hot so forgot about the camera. Here is the finished product.


180 Degree Thermostat-

Tools Needed:
13mm socket
Cresent wrench

Again sorry for no pics. We kinda forgot about the camera at this point lol. It was 104 today and I wanted to play golf this morning so we didn't start until 2:30. Very, very simple. Disconnect the radiator hose off the engine block. Just follow the hose that runs across the top of the fan down to the motor. While it is off I would replace that stupid factory clamp. Those are a pain! I put down a drip pan but the coolant hits the crossmember and goes everywhere. You will spill some! Then remove the neck. It has two 13 mm nuts holding it on. Behind that you will see the thermostat. If your motor is warm at all be careful. That thing is hot! Remove it and take the gasket off the old one and put it on the new one and button everything back up. Poor the coolant back in and watch your baby run cooler. My is running 185 on the highway and 188-192 city streets which isn't bad considering how hot it is right now. Very easy mod and well worth it. Autozone part number 4128


Pic of the Rams


Thanks again Tim!!!

Thanks again for helping. I will go out in a few and see if I can't bend that clip back. I bet it just is too wide. Take a pair of pliers and bend it in a little and good as new. Hopefully I don't have to take off the tire to do it...
