The "plans" for my rig

Recently picked up this 07 HEMI Ram 1500, Quad Cab, 4X4, Big Horn Edition:

She currently has 34" Toyo Open Country's on her. The goal is to make it a very capable all around exploration machine for my family. It will be setup for decent offroading, camping, hunting and fishing.



My plans (in no particular order):

moddest suspension with slight lift/level
35" tires
very unique built in compressed air system (details on that later)
built in A/C power
2 climate controlled dog kennels
built in cooler
larger fuel tank
rack for jerricans
built in tool box
built in tie down box
built in storage box (for items like tent, tarps, sleeping bags, etc)
built in rack for shovel, axe and pick axe
beefy brush guard
lots of extra lighting front, rear and sides
winch system
tow hooks front and rear
exterior speakers for sound system
table that expands from the tailgate
roof rack for extra storage


Many of these items will be pinned/bolted in the bed for somewhat easy removal to allow full use of the truck bed. Everything will be lockable. I am sure more "redneck" items will come to mind over the next year of building but this is a basic list that gives you an idea of the direction of her. She will not out perform anything in any one concept but she should be capable to do a lot of things.

One of the most important things you forgot though......a couple of fire extinguishers....1 inside and 1 in the bed at least.

Yep....sure did forget those. I always keep one with me but it would be nice to have an actual bracket or two for some.

sounds like it will be a good all around truck when you get it done.
