Someone warned me early on that this site would cause me to want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on mods.. they were right! :LOL:

Mods already purchased, but not yet installed:
Euro-Style Antenna
Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite Tonneau Cover
Mopar Chrome Bug Deflector

I will post pictures and updates when I get these installed (the first one arrives Monday! Woot!)

Mods I plan to do (please note: this list is not like most others on here.. I don't want to mess with much under the hood.. most of my mods, as you will see, are for aesthetic purposes):

Chrome Window Visors (Putco Element #480137)
Chrome Fuel Door (Mopar #82211393)
Chrome Tailgate Handle (TOTAL PART REPLACEMENT.. no 3M here!)
(I still have yet to locate the exact part or location I will purchase from)
Air Filter (K&N #33-2247)
Tailgate Control (EZ Down)
Mud Flap Set of Four (In the works for a very sweet set.. to be continued.. ;))
Remote Tailgate Kit (Mopar #82211668AB)
Door Sill Plates (Mopar #82212428AB - actually working on getting a custom set that say 'Laramie'.. hoping it works out!)
3rd Brake Light Overlay ('Hemi')

Yup, looks like the mod bug has another victim. :wow: Now let's see it all come together :smileup:
Patience Padawan. My wallet needs to catch up after the mods I've already purchased.
:LOL:
I can't wait to put it all together! It's all in my head and looks superb! I fought back and forth about going smoke or chrome and decided that the mineral gray is an excellent candidate for being Chromed Out! :D Thanks for your interest! I will certainly be posting more pictures as things progress!

Welcome to the forum :wavey:
Thanks for the welcome. :)
You would have to convince me that the mod in question was a 'Can't Live Without' necessity. ;) I believe that my Ram is built beautifully and it would take quite a bit of argument to convince me to mess with something that already works brilliantly!

That would be simple....just come check out all the build threads, stay here for a while and you will create these mods into some 'can't live without' necessities :smileup:

Actually, why not start a build thread as you are already installing certain mods

Cabin air filter mod? I am all for a clean truck.. I am OCD when it comes to cleanliness and being orderly.

BTW- definitely stay away from fast.... everytime i look at his build thread it makes me want to spend money :LOL:
That is not entirely a bad thing.. wanting to make your rig shine and stand out, I mean ;)

Pull the tape off.. what tape?

So pulling the tape reveals.. what?.. more metallic gray paint?? :158: That would be awesome! How would one go about removing this tape?? :D
