I'm in the same boat as you. I really, really want my tails tinted (thinking of using VHT nightshades), but I also don't want to draw extra attention to myself. I'm thinking about just doing a couple of light coats (not to make it too obvious) and see how I like that. I guess the benefit of doing something lamin-x is you could always just peel it off if you get stopped for it.

I wonder if a better sub will do any good on the factory amp? or would you have to run a different amp?

True, true, you got me on the lift and tires.

Well the headlights should be on in a couple of weeks then I'll have pics with the grill, badges, exhaust tips all painted. You're going to want to do it too, so just start preparing yourself Tinted tails well I'm still back and forth on but will probably end up doing them at some point.

Well, not much of a transformation yet, but I did lose the RAM emblems, those stupid TRX decals (didn't last more than two days) and added a set of factory 20s. Still trying to get past the idea of painting an almost brand new truck and go monotone. Next is dual exhaust with factory cutout bumper, then probably painted door handles.

Leave the two-tone man it looks good...I think it would look good to black it out with the two tone orange..wheels, windows, heads, tails, etc

VERY interested to see how the Lamin-x route works! I also prefer my mods to be "undo-able"... how soon is soon?????

Nice truck! I would like to see some more shots of the grille guard. From what I can tell, it actually seems to match the lines of the truck pretty well, and I haven't seen many that do. That is part of the reason I have held off getting one.

I dont have a stock pic but you can imagine it lol

Leveled with 285 bfgs




4" superlift with 35" nitto trail grapps

Added 1.25" body up to this point






Mods so far: 4" superlift, 1.25" rc body lift, tinted windows, 295/65/20 nitto trail grapplers, flowmasters, spray in liner, painted grille shell, weathertech ventvisors and floormats

Jake09 - Love the look after the body lift. Do you have any pics of the rear? I've always shy'd away from body lifts due to the gap they create over the trailer hitch. Wondering what yours looks like (or if you even have a hitch?)... Thanks...
