1996 Dodge Ram Lifted

So beyond my GSR integra (and my other 2 Integra's) lies' the beast.

9" Lift, 35" Tires, Exhaust, Intake, few other mods.

I basically bought it like this, got a steal from a buddy. Threw the hustle of cars starting with a 200$ Mighty Max, I traded up to this.

Current System:

HU: Kenwood KVT-815 (DVD player doesnt work / eject)
Fronts: Yellow 6x9 (dead serious no markings besides being yellow)
Rears: Assumed stock although unhooked
2 No Name 6" Head rest monitors.

Amp: Power Acoustic 980/2
Subs: 2 Old Pioneer 10" Subs (guled in box)
Enclosure: Custom plastic molded box, under rear seat.

Plans:

Upgraded Speakers, unsure of anything yet, Better Subs if not whole different box, Kenwood Double Din Deck w/ Navi.

3" Body Lift, 39" or 40" Tires on current 17"s.

Adding color matched bumpers, newer 99+ front bumper with intergrated corner fog lights, newer body style crystal clear OEM center bumper fogs.

3 Sets of HID's. (head lights and both sets of fogs)

Piaa Offroad back up lights.

Newer style Black plastic mirrors

Dash is all cracked and hacked up from the Double Din install, so cleaning that up some how.

New Alarm, upgrading to 2way paging (if you haven't yet DO IT)


And much beyond that, just mobbing around town, some wheeling and sand fun. Ive never been much of a fan of tight trails and or rocks, so she is mainly a Mud / Sand Queen (says "Sand S*ut" on tail gate).


If anyone is wondering with current gas prices, it costs roughly 1$ to drive 3 miles... and yes its worth every second and mile.

My girls uncle has one of these, except his is a regular cab and doesn't have that much lift on it. It is a 96 though. Not bad looking, except for the dents on the bed.

Yeah I love it, its been about 3 years sense I had a wheeler..

Technically speaking I am only about 2k into it, when stock same condition are going for 5k+ in my area I am happy with the deal. Its not perfect but a wheeler shouldn't be.

Yeah the guy had intentions of doing the 3" body and 39"s but decided Togo ford instead so sold it to me like this. I like having the extra clearance to flex and not tear into the fenders or having to cut them.

More Pictures!

You can kinda see the original shape of the dash used to be a 1.5 DIN, with a ashtray and cig lighter below it. I am going to be cleaning it up to try and make it look OEM with another double din Screen.

You can't beat the price. And that interior looks rough, but it should make for a fun project.

Those no name 6x9's look like the Pioneer rev-comps I had in my old Accord. Nice truck though.

Yeah I am planning this weekend todo some tearing apart.

I dont have any clue what todo with the subs/box, I cant loose my backseat 2 kids, so maybe a bigger custom fiberglass box? I wouldn't mind going ported but have no clue how to make a port for a curved shaped box.

Ive got some dual 6.5" speakers I am going to throw in the rear for now... I cant stand just having fronts. And apparently looking up size, there 5.25" so ill see what I can do.


I plan on mounting the new screen to the dash not just chillen in the black part overlay.

Going to chop off the old plug and convert it to honda (its just easy and makes all my decks plug and play between my cars), and cleaning up the rear monitors wiring, have to add a switch to the dash as well because they are either on or off.

Well spent a part of yesterday making a new double din mount, I can understand why he did it so ghetto, but on the other hand after 5+ hours of making it work.. Im done with the dodge for a few days...

Original mount was the single din mount kit, bottom cut out with a peice of steel guled to it that just kinda chilled in the dash, rattled like all hell, screen was crooked.

I went out and bought a piece of steel, cut it was bigger then needed, used 6 different mounting screws, and had to cut the **** out of a crash bar, figured out thats why the last screen was crooked, and fineally got it all fitted... I want todo some fiberglass work and make it look all nice and pretty but I am alot more happier with this setup, pictures to follow tomorrow.

After spending way to long on that, I didnt feel motivated todo anything... I have to admit tho, the last screen must of been pure crap because you could barely hear the subs before, without even messing with any of my settings the subs and loud and clear and no more clipping. they sound like the whole setup might be worth keeping now.

Sounds like it was a lot of work, but it's good to hear that it paid off.

I'm looking forward to the pics.

So went out to take pictures, and the Camera was dead go figure... Tomorrow tho.

No real big updates besides breaking the truck... Lost steering while wheeling, had to wait 3 hours for help, 2 hours to fix it, then 2 hour drive home going 10mph hoping it held together, shes home now, just waiting for me to get off my lazy *** to fix it.
