2006 Mega Cab to 2006 Punisher Ram
 
I had a mini-build thread in a different section, figured i'd start fresh, and put it all in one (and the right) place. All the stock pictures I have:

This is the only photo I currently have of the ram before mods began

I installed 285/70/17 on it, replacing the 265/65/17s. I of course went with a much more aggressive tread (Kelly Safari) They aren't AS big as they could possibly be, however price wise, and manufacture wise, they were my current best option at the time. The stock Michelins lasted me about 55,000 miles. No complaints there!

Found out this 3/4 ton chassis can handle 1 1/2 tons pretty easy

After a long time, about 8 months or so, after installing my tires, I became single, and cash flow was more open. So I started my mad mod month! First up... HIDs! AND, new front plate!

Shortly after installing the HIDs, I realized how yellow and disgusting my rear "white" (notice the quotation marks) looked. LED replacements!

2002-2006 plate and cargo lights are 168/194 bulbs:

I know I shouldn't post all on my own thread, but I wanted to separate the projects, and this thread was started after alot of this was done.

Needed new tail lights too!

Annnnd, to tint them!

Finished product:

I got the third brake light in, and decided AGAINST tinting, due to the fact the smoked lens almost matched my truck dead on.

The OEM inside lights are too damn yellow, so therefore LEDs to replace them! (just map lights for now)

Wow bro, that thing is a beast!! Thanks for giving me credit with the paint!! I gotta redo my fogs because I painted them first before I actually knew the correct steps and the primer made them crack... I'm trying to convince my friend tO get a mega cab! Can you tell me the part numbers for the tail LEDs again? :rep: again lol

Stangshcky12 10-28-2011 06:55 PM
