Talking Arth Mod Thread V2

Yes yes yes... Things happened then more things happened and it led to this.

To sum up the story short simple and sweet I got rid of the orange truck in favor of something else thinking I would be out of a Ram for a good while. Then life happened and I found myself in a position to get back into a Ram. Needless to say here we are...

After a 1400 mile drive and a quick wash here is the truck I will be working on for now..





As most of you know I am not big into the huge lift or lowing mods but rather just a few things here and there. I do like chrome but only if it is tasteful.

Some of these mods will be a repeat but who cares.. make it my own right?!

Planned Mods:

2013 Headlights
2013 Tail lights
2013 Laramie Longhorn wheels
Projector fog lights
Painted Vent Visors
Painted Antenna Base
Remove B-Pillar tape
Mopar Chrome bug deflector
Husky Mud Flaps
Plasmaglow LED Tail gate bar
Plasmaglow LED mud flap lights
Exhaust(?)
Tuner(?)

I am sure more will come later... already got a few mods on and going.. pics later today!

Anddddd.. Here we go again .. Let's see if you can make another truck with chrome that I like, just like the last one.

But in all seriousness, I am excited to see what you do with this Ram after knowing what you did to the 09, and the excellent condiition it was all in. How are you liking the Rambox's so far?

The question mak on the Exhaust &Tuner, is there because you're not sure if you're going to change them or you're not sure which one you're going to go with?

The question is actually in regards to if I will be doing it or not. I will be getting a trinity no matter what but if I do but the exhaust...

Maybe headers? Maybe a cat back instead of just a muffler this time?

Gotta get more important stuff that isn't to expensive... Catch can. Headlights...well...I like to see at night.

A few small updates.

I basically just did my usual to the truck...

Yes the pictures are at night... was headed back from work.

First I did my usual chrome pieces... I went with the 2013/14 Chrome side molding. It is a bit thinner and longer. Also I added 1500 below Ram.



Next I removed the B-Pillar tape and added painted vent visors. Still working on getting the adhesive off of the doors from the old stick on visors...


While getting paint on the visors I also had them paint my AM/FM antenna base. It was faded so a little paint did wonders.


Finally the lights... I got some of my usual added to the rear of the truck..


I also added the projector fogs back that didn't sell. Can't tell in this picture but the difference between the factory Low's and the projector fogs isn't even funny.


Also I added weathertech floor liners, husky mud flaps, and my CB radio.

As usual, your truck's looking great! Love the paint-to-match visors & antenna base.

Had some exhaust work done to the Ram.

My main goal here was to get the cross over pipe moved so I could put the Mag-Hytech transmission pan for the 2500/3500 trucks on my 1500.
In that effort I also got the factory Y-Pipe removed and replaced it with the Magnaflow Y-pipe.

I personally have noticed a small exhaust note change but no performance gains...not that I was really expecting any with such a small change.

I also added back the Bully's Performance 87MM TB.

Looking at adding the S&B Intake here soon since it maintains the factory location and looks pretty good.

Pictures..

Passenger side cat over frame rail:


The new y-pipe location:


It worked out pretty well. Left me more than enough room and distance from the transfer case so I can get in there and change the fluid out.

Got the catch can in and installed today.



Also did the spark plugs and transfer case fluid.

Thinking of getting this next and doing some transmission service.
