That is one hell of a job setting up a truck man, for your ram air idea i know the 4th gen guys are cutting a hole in the air box and using dyer duct to bring the opening to a cooler point, you could do something like that but bring the opening to the in your front bumper? As for the lights i would say paint the insides before you tint them but that is JMO, you can always make your self a set of customs while you have them broken apart.

just an idea these are how i did my 05

Is that a kit? That looks sweet! How'd you wire that up? That would solve buying aftermarket!

Well, i bought a set of TYC lights like 40 bucks a piece and made them, Here is the build thread. but you can get all the stuff from theretrofitsource to do it, the light output is phenomenal. The other option would be to contant Jeremy at the retro shops and he will custom make them as well if its not something you want to tackle. His prices seem high but for the quality of work he does it is a fair price. if you have any questions on making yourself a set id be glad to help just leave a message on my page Here

Thanks buddy sounds like just the diy I needed! If painting the housing, a black gloss with clear coat is all ill need?

Truck looks great man, good work! I got a couple questions for ya:

You said you plasti-dipped the hood stripes. Any experiences I've had with plasti-dip didn't seem like you could dip a straight edge. How'd you do it?

Also, you said you bedlined the emblems and door spears. Is that out of a spray can or how did you apply it?

Hey bow, the plastidip is very quick to dry, but to get the straight edge you have to do very quick coats. I laid 4 coats in about 10 mins. You have to peel the tape while it's still wet. It's tricky bc you don't want it to drip either.

The bedliner is rustoleum from Lowe's in a spray can. 4 coats very durable.

thanks!

Do you have any close ups of the dipped stripes? Also, does the rustoleum you used have a textured finish or is it like spray paint?

Don't since I got my new phone, but I might add tomorrow, the bedliner is textured, gets real hard after cured a couple days

Heres a pic of how I re-did my intake, I wanted to keep my engine cover for later customization, will be building a box for it, and a ram for the front with a hose to the box later on:

So far what it looks like:
