I bought the truck on July 5th, 2014.

Here it is the day I got her.

Now, some of you may say, Hey MonsoonMike, why did you get an ST?

Well, to be honest. The truck fits the build and so did the price.

I plan on replacing the wheels and tires, I plan on painting the bumpers and the grill.. so why should I pay more for the chrome stuff right?

Inside suits me perfect as well. The Vinyl seats are like leather to me! :)

She isn't much right now. But it's got a long list of mods to come! :)

Not selling the truck short, it's an amazing truck and I absolutely think it's perfect. I love this color too!

Truck comes pretty basic. Even in 2014, you'd think a basic truck has keyless entry. NOPE! LOL. Well, fixed that problem and gained a remote start feature at the same time!

I de-badged it today and installed my third brake flashing thing..

So now when I press the brakes, the brake lights come on, and the third brake light flashes 3 times to gain attention to the people behind me. I had this in my other truck and loved the feature.


I couldn't come to taking off the "C"... at least for now.. :crazy:

I am really going to try to get those bumpers and grill painted to match this weekend. I have someone dropping off things for me to paint. I may if I have time and feel like it, remove my stuff... maybe even door handles....

This! Love the ST

Phenomenal truck, and great plans. and you are doing this with very good taste.

Hows the ride with those new coils in the rear?
I'm with you on this one. I think it's a phenomenal truck as well and an excellent platform to build from. Why pay money for something you are going to remove in the first place.

Can't wait to see the pics of the truck as it gets modded. :cool:

Yea JDC, the thing now is the STs seem to have more room for some reason.. I think its in the half ton mostly.. but I like the industrial look.

Hey Monsoonmike do us a favor. Mask the tires off with tape (if you can) they are probably still slick from the dealer shinola. *Paint the wheels flat black, then send us pics.

Please and thanks.

MonsoonMike bought a crew cab which has more interior room than a quad cab so that might be why it looks to have more room at least interior wise. :cool:

The ride is very nice. It's not as bouncy, more balanced if you will. Now, my 2007 Rode like CRAP compared to this truck.. so... this might be a little misguided.. haha

The spare on this truck is the same wheel, just black. I thought about this already.. I may have to plasti-dip them before I sell them.. When I do, I'll be sure to post it up for you!



That's a damn nice truck. For an ST model, the interior is very nice. All you need now is a glove box door. ;)

I've been wanting one! I just wish I could get it for about half of that! :(

Crew cab seemed to be like my Megacab, just no space behind the seat.

I dig it! :)

Did some small things today! I mounted my garage door button in the dash. I thought it looked better than just the remote control sitting on the visor. Well, main reason too was I parked outside a lot before and I didn't want it to be exposed. So I hid it via this button on my old truck. Just went right to it on this truck, even though now I am parking inside... either way.. cool little mod..

I ran out of double sided tape, so I tapped it for now. Once I get my double din stereo in there, I'll do the double sided tape thing.

Subscribing to see what you do to the truck. Your build threads are always interesting.

MonsoonMike - Nice clean looking install. I too like hiding or installing items to make it look like it came that way from the factory. Keeps a whole lot of pains in the asses out of your truck. :cool:

I am a little bummed I can not get rid of the rear RAM logo on the tail gate.
I wonder if I can paint it when I paint my bumpers/grills..

You can pick up the black tailgate badge from the black express package on eBay for pretty cheap. It looks great with the granite.
