History
I bought my truck in late 2003 from a local dealership with only 17 miles on the odometer. She's has served me faithfully ever since. I am a current member of Chrysler's 100,000 Mile Club and will be joining the 200,000 mile club soon, pending no catastrophe or the Rapture occurring. :)
2004 Dodge Ram 1500 (PR4 Flame Red)

Modifications

Drivetrain
I tried installing a Vararam "Hemi Under Glass" ram-air intake for awhile, but the large air-filter pan ended up slowly rubbing the aluminum elbow on my compressor line until a pinhole formed and my refrigerant leaked out. I ditched that and installed an aftermarket split-snorkel intake tube with two K&N filters.
Interior
I replaced the center fold down jump-seat with a police-style Command Console, which houses my CB and Ham radios (I am a licensed amateur radio operator and SKYWARN volunteer storm spotter).
Exterior
I have added a Flowmaster American Thunder Cat-Back dual exhaust system to her. I added chrome bedrails and step bars, and installed an in-bed lockable aluminum diamondplate pattern toolbox in black powdercoat, which matches the Proteca rubber bed mat. The bed is scuffed up from...well...life. But the mat helps prevent further scrapes. I've installed under-rail switchable LED lights to help illuminate things when I'm working in dimly lit conditions and when the standard cargo light just isn't enough.
Audio
I've installed a Pioneer DEH-X6500BT stereo
Suspension
Stock. But I did put a bed-leveling kit on it.
Wheel and Tire
Stock 2004 Dodge 17" chrome mags with Firestone Destination LE 265/70R17's. After the factory Michelin 245/70R17's wore out, I had a set of Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's that I absolutely LOVED... but they have sadly discontinued that tire in either a 245 or 265 (to my knowledge).
