Well lets say I became a supporting member of the thread. Just the 12.50 3 month pack for the lowest level supporter but still! Wanted to wait to start this thread for mods until after I did that to kind of "earn a spot". Didnt want to take up space and time on the forum without getting a place on the actual forum.
ANYWAYS, my truck is as follows-
2012 Ram 1500 Crew Cab
Lone Star 5.7L Black
Plans were to honestly just do exhaust and let that be IT! Until last Thursday after making my FIRST payment something happened to change my mind NO POINT IN KEEPING IT STOCK NOW (;
Here are pictures of the truck BONE STOCK the night of and proceeding days after getting it.
List of Mods I have done so far will be in the Next post

Mods so far!
True Dual Cherry Bomb Extreme Exhaust!
Here is the exhaust getting put on at the local muffler shop! Guy took 30 minutes and he put it all together from raw material! He honestly does the best exhaust work I have ever seen! Has him a nice little spot in the middle of our town always getting business! Cost me 300 dollars! And its probably the best setup you can get (insert your preferred muffler)!
True Dual Cherry Bomb Extreme's *One muffler and pipe set from the cat*
Here it is all said and done up! (True Dual Cherry Bomb Extreme's)
*** EXHAUST CLIP BEFORE RESONATOR DELETE AND K&N CAI INTALLED ***
You can take those covers off the wheel and plasti dip them pretty easy. that's what i did with mine! can't wait for ur list!
When I figure out how to steal the gf's stang for a weekend, those aluminum rims are going in to get chrome plated :P! Dont get me wrong, I LOVE the blacked out look, but everybody is doing it these days, and honestly if you can do it correct you can make chrome look good, "IF" you dont over do it. IE- why I have regular black mirrors and not the chrome caps, or the side molding door dinger trim guard crap :P But I might just plasty dip the plastic covers for now to get something going :P!
Those plastic covers happen to be the only damn thing I hate about these ram trucks... :/ so silly they have been doing that for years...
Truck sounds good man. When we getting a non-resonator sound clip?? lol
Was trying to get one done a week ago :/ its ridiculously loud :P but sense the back luck with teenaged girls and texting my truck is in the shop with my paper plates still on it getting some body work and painting done.
BUT! When I do I will drive over to the local loading docks and get REALLY good long bursts for you guys to hear. :P I know HD clips with good sound is hard to come buy on the tube :P Esp when it comes to exhaust!
Got the HD sound clip with the Cherry Bomb Extreme exhaust and Resonator delete! Before anybody nags! I own the property in front of that as of next week. It's the warehouse I'm buying for the business.
Do me a big favor and when the add pops up at the bottom of the video go ahead and click it for me (:! Gets me money for more mods as well as gets my business to the top of google and keeps me there! Not begging just every bit helps!
Well got some Plasti Dip in the mail the other day. Decided I wanted to get rid of those ugly yellow turn markers on the side of the headlights without completely blacking out the headlights. This is the result, I personally LOVE the look. Almost something out of Batman? :P
Took two Coats to get it dark enough to not be able to see through.
After first coat *Re-masking the lines SLIGHTLY on the outside of the orignal lines so I did not pull up the Plasti Dip with the tape.
After pulling the tape off of the second coat. **Still has the access I need to pull off**
AND! The after product of the madness that is taking a spray can to a new truck (; **PICTURE HEAVY**
NOT bad the result I got, I personally love it but in the end will most likely be taking it off here pretty soon. Just something to play around with, this Plasti Dip makes the regular Joe look like a painting GOD.
Just spent 120 dollars on ZXE Lows and Fogs for my truck. Wanted a WHITE look and not the normal blinding ugly blue crap from HID's...
Well I am now up to date as of today with the mods in my sig. Got the ported Throttle Body from Fastman along with the Billet Tech Catch Can. Was two 10 minute jobs and done. Nice bolt-ons to add to the truck.
Also decided to take a crack at doing something with these horridly yellow colored caps and things under the hood. Ended up painting most of them! :P
I ended up throwing a coat of primer on to the yellow to allow the paint to stick better.
After that two coats of red and a coat of clear to finish them off. I will most likely be going back and doing them in black or white though. As my theme is black and white.
Here is the Washer Fluid Cap in black!
Here is the Billet Tech Catch Can installed and looking good
And lastly for today here is a picture of the Fastman Throttle Body installed. ALSO decided to leave the Engine cover off to see if I can get some lower temps with this all black truck in the Texas HEAT
Let me know what you think guys (:
