Well....I'll do it this way :ugh

So as many of yall know I have my ram as my toy & my dakota as my dd. My rams future hopefully has a set of big valve heads & mid 11's in it. Its a fun toy to have

Are there any suggestions on anything I should do to my ram? I took off the srt bumper & currently have the chrome bumper. I think its gona stay for now. I just got tired of the srt 10 cover

Well I have been playing w/ the dakota the past 2 days. I took the drop off b/c it rode like crap & I was tired of it. My ram w/ the 5/8 rides fine but the dak w/ the 2/4 rode like poo. So I raised it back up to stock height & while I was @ it I washed it, waxed it, put new shocks on it, changed the oil & trans fluid & filters, cleaned & armoralled under the hood & put new seat covers in it.

Well I have been thinking about doing a 3" body lift & a set of 31" or 32" all terrains on it & maybe a black brush guard. I have never owned a slightly lifted truck & I just want it to have a nice aggresive look but nothing to major. I cant do a suspension lift to it b/c its an 04 & they dont make anything for an 04. I would like to do a 31 or 32" x 10.5 tire in either a 16" tire or get new eagle alloy 15" rims w/ the tires. What do yall think? I know the truck isnt a 4wd but I think it would be a fun project. Here are some pics of the truck & some pics of a 2wd truck w/ the 3" bl & 31's

I think I have talked myself into it the past couple of days. I'd like to do a 3" body lift w/ a wheel/tire combo something like this pic & maybe a brush guard, maybe

When I first read you took the drop off the Dakota, the first thing I thought of was a slight lift. I also dont like the grill guard, but I like the look of that brown Dak.

Yea the drop looked like poo to me. So thats 2 for no brush guard. The color is Garnet Red. I guess the sun made the color look different

Gas tank?? If so yes. I'd like to do a fuel cell in the back of the bed but theres no point in it I guess. I dont think I'll ever go that far

well it'd cut down on some weight and help you hook if mounted in the back. you could get lil bit bigger cell if you want to go farther distances.

Yea. Maybe 1 day.

As far as hooking goes my 295/45 mt's are done for. I have 2 sets of 17's so I'm thinking about putting a set of dr's on 1 set so I can put them on @ the house & drive tgo the track & just have fun & the get a set of 17" hoosiers for when I want to run some good times
