2005 Ram 1500 "R/T" Build

Hi all, I thought I should start up a build thread for my '05 Ram 1500 I purchased on Oct. 11th, 2014. It's a regular cab, short bed, which is the first time I have had this combo in a truck. It also has the 5.7L HEMI, which freakin rocks! It is an ultra clean truck that had only 63,000 miles on it. The whole truck, including the underside looks like brand new. Someone took really nice care of this. They did some mods as well. Projector headlights, LED tail lights, K&N cold air intake, Bilstein shocks and a Leer bed cover. It also had chrome side steps, bug deflector and pin stripe but those were removed to get rid of the "old man" look.

My plans are to make my version of an R/T model. So far I removed the parts that didn't have the right feel, as I listed above. I picked up a set of '14 Ram Sport 20" wheels, to replace the stock chrome 17" wheels it had. What a HUGE difference this made. Plan include doing dropped spindles, Belltech drop springs, changing the grill out and some graphics and R/T badges. I also want to swap in a double din head unit as well.

Since everyone loves pictures, here are the ones I have currently. Enjoy

Day it came home





Projector headlights



LED tail lights



Steps, pin stripe and bug deflector removed. Much better!



'14 Ram Sport 20" wheels with Nitto 420S 285/50-20 tires. :rck:







Well that's it for now.

Hey, what are you going to do with the stock 17's. If you want to sell them. How much. Then you have any idea what it would cost to ship them

Hey wait a minute, "Old Man look"..... hmm I'm thinking you need a little more of that. Truck is looking good, definitely would have a more sporty look dropped....

I agree with Redtruck--"old man look" is there a better way to describe the pin stripes. I kinda like mine----but I'm 70 so you may be right----

I was given a trade in value when I bought the tires so they are gone.
