Hi All, I was wondering is anyone has installed one of the old Ram hood ornaments on a new truck? It might be to much ram with the red eyed ram already in the grill.

I always liked the ram head ornament. I added one to my old Ramcharger!

Revive this thread. I am going to install a Rams Head hood ornament on my 2015 1500. The question is how? The base of the aftermarket Rams Head on ebay has a flat base. The location on the hood where I want to install it has downward curve making the head tilt further down then I would like. It looks as though it needs a special designed base to make the Rams Head level or where it should be on a flat surface. I am looking for a "best" way to do it and still look like it belongs there. Your suggestions or ideas?

Find a friend with access to a 3D printer and print a plastic piece to go between the ornament and the hood. You could paint it to match the hood; or possibly have it chromed.

The ornament is the normal RAM Hood Ornament from a few years ago that is readily avaialble as a new item on eBay. The problem is that is faces down too much because of the curviture of the hood so a "base" needs to be created to compensate for that. The blue is the base that was 3D printed.

I would but I don't remember how. I tried several times and the only thing I can get the forum to accept is the link to the image.

If there is a different way let me know and I will gladly post a few of it.

I am not satisfied with the base yet which is the reason I have not mounted it. I tried a "chrome" paint epoxy and it looked terrible. I set the project aside and have not got back into it.

My thought would be to have it printed by one of the companies that can print in metal (like Shapeways). Would you be willing to share the STL file for the base? I actually came to the forumz tonight specifically to see if anyone had already done something like this. I always loved the RAM hood ornament on my dad's dodge.

Yes I need to find someone that can design a nice looking base. I just haven't gotten that far. :i_rolleyes: If I do get it done I would be happen to share the file.
