    That is a sweet looking truck. The only problem with a truck like that is it's nearly useless, unless you have a massive drop hitch to pull a trailer, or a super long ramp if you're going to load your sleds or quads on a deck.

    In my opinion with these trucks, since they are useless in mud, is that 35's are the perfect size tire. It's big enough to give you some ground clearance, but not so big that it makes it useless. You can bolt 35's on these with no lift, but you have a little rubbing. If you put in a 2-3" load levelling kit you are golden. I am running a 4.5" suspension lift. I am going to have to extend the ramp for my deck to 9' this year.

The tires/rims look great with the flares though, fits it just right. Hoping my truck will look nearly as good and I will be happy.
    Thanks. What are you throwing in that beast for a lift, and rims and tires?

Only thing I can think of as any sort of criticism and its most certainly not a big thing, but if ya got the subs in a flush mount instead of surface mounted, not sure if you got the mounting depth or space above the top to make it work though. Other than that it looks beautiful so far, I bet your rear passengers will have some fun sitting right over the subs.
    To tell you the truth, the only time this injury hurts, is when someone touches it, or bumps it. When it happenned I was in shock. Then he froze me (that hurt like hell). Then when he finished sewing me up, they gave me two T3's. And now it throbs a little bit, but doesn't hurt at all. The nurse got me to move my thumb before they sewed it up, and he could look inside and see the tendon move, so she knows it wasn't cut. LOL. I have to say, I got very lucky.

    Good call about the flush mount. I always flush mount my speakers, but this one is a very tight fit. Once I get it all glassed, and sitting into place I might take a couple measurements to see if I can double up the MDf in order to inset the speaker. If I can't I will be using the mounting rings and grills for the speakers, so they will be safe.

Closest thing I could find was about 8 hours away, and sadly I settled for what I got, and it was still 2 hours away lol. Your truck will really come alive when ya get the chip on there, not sure what all the dodge guys use but I know the Smarty seems to be the big power tuner.
    Yeah dude. I couldn't bring myself to spend that kinda money on a truck if it didn't have the 6-speed. I hate automatics (except for the new dodge 6-speed autos). Too bad you couldn't find one yourself.

    Yeah, when I comes time, I will be ordering up a Smarty. They are supposed to be the Cat's ***. More power, better mileage, and more black smoke. LOL.

    You can't get the Hemi with a standard anymore? My old 2-dr 1500 only had a 4.7, but it as fun with the 5-speed. Buddy who bought it off me let me take it for a rip the other day, after he put a chip in it. It actually pulls a lot harder now. I would have done it if I thought it would make that much of a difference.

    I agree on too much lift, they certainly look sweet and will probably work better off road then a smaller lift/tire combo but how the hell do ya get in and outa the bed or haul anything other than a tag trailer, certainly no gooseneck or 5th wheel will fit on something like that. Again though I bet it would be a blast to drive, but I couldn't use it as a daily driver.

    I am going with a 4" RCD lift with 35" Nitto Terra Grapplers on 18x9 Pro Comp 6005 rims. The rims aren't all that fancy but I was looking for a more subtle while nice style. Already the first thing that anyone says when they get in the truck is wow this is pretty tall, not too many lifted trucks around these parts, plus probably 95% of the people drive little cars so its a big difference lol. I really can't wait to get it all on

    Well thats good to hear, stuff like that could be a perminant impairment pretty easily, sounds like you will recover fine and have full use of it back in no time. Scary how close things can come sometimes to being the difference between a few weeks or months of recovery and a lifetime of physical dissability.

    Sounds pretty good, it can get tough when working with such tight spaces but seems like your coming along nicely. Should look sweet when your all done and give ya a good reason to pop up your seats and show it off.

    Totally auto's ****, I still think if I come across a truck locally that is similar to mine but with a 6-speed I may end up trading it in just to get the hand shaker. Sadly the way prices are going and such I might take a bath if that happens though, so more than likely I am gonna be driving this truck for at least 10 more years.

    Sweet, will be fun when ya get it, then you can take some cars light to light while ya got a pair of sleds up on the deck lol I can't wait to get the tuner and exhaust for mine, stereo and suspension work is taking up most of the funds for now though

    Keep up the good work. Do you have any plans for what amps you are going to use and where they will be mounted? Any door speaker or HU upgrades? Sorry if I missed these in the first few posts.

    I didn't give any details on that stuff yet, since I already had the install pretty much done for the.

    Right now I have an Alpine 9833 HU in the dash. One day I will be running your Truckputer setup, but for now this will have to do.

    The mids are all running of my Phoenix Gold Xenon 100.4

    I was going to wait till I got pictures to talk about these, but my RSD's just came in this morning. I had a wicked set of Boston Accoustic 6x9's in the doors, but one is starting to make a funny sound, and I wanted to go to a Component setup anyways. The way house work and everything has been going, I had to stick with the RSD budget speakers for now. I got a wicked E-bay deal on them though. It cost me $109 shipped to me. That is pretty good concidering the price of shipping stuff across the border.

    I have an old set of MB Quart (Like mid 90's style old) 5 1/4's in the rear doors. The tweets in these things are super harsh, so I might run just the mids back there. We'll see how everything goes.

    The subs are going to be running off an Alpine MPR M850. The ONLY place I can mount these amps is under the front seats. Which ***** because I would love to do a nice show piece install like you are doing. I'm afraid the distro blocks, and the crossovers will all be hidden under there too. Nothing fancy for me.

    Sounds like a pretty solid setup ya pieced together. Hopefully you like the RSD comps as much as everyone else. Doesn't seem like you can go wrong with them, especially at their price Maybe you can tune out the tweets a bit on the rear speakers, if not maybe a 5-1/4" set of RSD comps for the rear passengers.

    Under the front seats should be a good spot for the amps, you'll have the subs to show off to people anyways Many seem to be much more impressed at looking at some subs move some air than they do at some amps sitting there making power. Everyone is gonna wanna ride in your truck on the way to the trails when ya go sledding.

    Oh and good luck on the truckputer thingy, if ya ever have any questions I would be more than happy to help ya out. I still gotta get mine up and running, its getting close though.

    Under the seat is an alright spot, but they do show a lot more than my liking. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about that. First this is to get everything making noise though. I can't wait to get it all together. It's going to have to wait a little while though. I take off for the big Hawaii trip on Friday, followed by a little work trip. So I won't be back in town for a couple weeks. Fortuately by then I should be able to use my right hand again, and be back at'er.

    I've only ever used stock speaker locations, so I'm excited to play with speaker position a little bit. I will be mounting the 6 1/2's in the doors in the stock location, but I hope to have enough room to direct them a little more to the middle of the truck. The tweets I will have to play with. I have been told by a few people that they image well off the windshield, from the stock 3" location. I have been told by others that they don't. So we'll see.

    I'm most excited to eventually sound deaden the doors. I can't wait to see what a difference that makes.

    Yeah, I am very sad to say I am going to be jiggling the boys balls on the way out to the trails. That is so wrong. I have to find some girls that ride. LOL.

    I will get ahold of you if I ever round up some parts and time to get one of these running. I have been watching your thread, along with the carputer thread. You guys are giving me some great ideas.

    With any luck your truck will sit with as nice of a stance as mine, and my stereo setup will look as nice as yours. LOL.

    I finally made it back into the country. I was in Hawaii for a week there. I'm just at the sister in laws in Edmonton right now. When I get back I'll post a couple pictures of the trip, and get back to work on the truck.

    I'll check out your progress then too. I can't wait to see that rig looking like a truck.

    Are you happy with it?

    I'm sure he did the first time, then used a flush trim to make it exactly the same. No offense to the OP but as long as you know how to use the router table correctrly and safely it should go smoothly.
