Default Multiple Mods Complete

So I haven't posted any new pics in a while so I figured I'd post the mods I've completed so far. The last couple days I debadged and painted the engine cover. I also bought a new black shorter antenna and put that on.

For the Debadge I just parked in the sun and took some fishing wire to the letters and they all were off within 5 minutes. I thought great, this is pretty easy... Then the hard part. That tape is some heavy duty stuff, and rightfully so. I've heard of others buying the 3m eraser wheel. but I couldn't find one around me. So I just took my fingers to it and kindof rolled it up ontop of itself. About an hour, sweat, tears and a few blisters later I had all of the tape off. Then I just used some goo-b-gone on the remaining 'goo' and it came out brand new I'm very happy with how it turned out. For now I've left the Hemi Badge on because I like it and I like the black wording with chrome around it. I'll see how I like it over the next week.

For the Engine Cover it was fairly simple. Nothing too it really. Most of the time was spent masking it up which was quite annoying at one point lol. But once that was done it was good. The hardest part was taping around the Ram Head on the Filter cover.

-----------

Before that I bought 2 10" JL subs and put those in with a JL JX500/1 Amp. Also I have on Recon Smoked Tail lights and 3rd brake light.

Mods not completed yet - Front window tint (Not sure why I haven't yet)
- Halo Projector Headlights. Most likely smoked to match my Tails.
- Eventually a set of new wheels. (black when the budget allows)
- And I may try plasti-dipping my side steps black. But I'm not sure about that one yet.
- WeatherTech floormats

Any suggestions on other mods would be greatly appreciated.

Now to what you all want - some pics

Yes that tape is a pain in the *ss. I had the same problem but I would rather put a little work in and save a few $$$ for my next upgrade. I like what you did under the hood. It looks good. What kind of paint did you use?

Great lookin round of mods!!!

You might want to look into getting some rear seat spacers and lifting them up ~1". By the looks of your seats they might be sitting on the subs affecting performance and possibly damaging your subs

Thank you and thanks for the heads up I've noticed that as well. I'm going to get some grills for them tomorrow. I'd rather try that first instead of the seat spacers. But we'll see how it turns out.

Thanks Leroy I used Krylon fusion for plastic the guy at the auto parts store recommended it for this application. I'm not sure if anyone else has used this but we'll see how it holds up. So far so good.

I have thought about it but for now I like it. Once I start blacking it out more it might have to come off.

Very nice looking truck and great job with your mods, the engine cover looks awesome! Love the RAM badges on the inside of the doors, I did the same thing, even added a tailgate badge to my dash!

Thanks Cajun, I got the idea from someone on here. They used the Hemi badge on the inside of the door though. I wasn't sure if anyone had done that same with the RAM. It fits perfectly and looks really good IMO.
