New Ram Hemi owner in FL

Hey...about a month ago I purchased an 05 Ram Hemi 1500 4X4 with 110k miles.

The previous owner(s) seemed to have done quite a few mods to it as well as it having probably every option package available at the time.

I got to know another 05 ram hemi owner in another forum, Fred (chefred112) and we've discussed his mods and mods I should do...along with learning about everything already done to the truck.

Today he recommended joining this forum since there's a lot of Florida owners here.

Not sure if anyone is in NE Florida, but I live in Jax, about 15 min from Jax Beach.

I've been looking for anyone who knows more about this truck local to me so I can brainstorm about different mod options and maybe eventually do cam install/gears or things outside my abilities.

I've seen FL meet up threads in here but with 2 toddlers and a 3 month old, its difficult to go much further than local to me.

Anyway, just wanted to pop in, introduce myself, and see if any owners are close by.

Matt

Welcome to HTC Matt and to the FL Chapter. There are a few who live up in the NE of FL. Stu, Mark and Mario to name a few. I’m about 2 hours south by KSC. Anything and everything you can dream of, as probably been done by someone, and is posted here. Let us know what your plans are, and we’ll help you spend your money wisely. Have a great day, and welcome aboard.

Welcome to HTC and the Florida chapter! Like stated if I can be done someone in Florida has done it. From Cam swaps all the way to custom front mount turbo setups! There are 5/6 people up that way a little south of you but close enough to help and deff bounce ideas off of.

Welcome to HTC and the Florida chapter.
We definitely enjoy tinkering with our Hemi Ram trucks.
Post up some pics of your Hemi Ram truck.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! It's good to find guys local for help and not the whims of local shops...haha

So far what Fred and I have discovered about my Hemi...

Factory Options:
- Tow Package
- 4X4
- 3.92 gears
- Black leather Interior
- QC
- Sprayliner
- Sunroof
- probably more I can't think of...

Current Mods:
- Fred believes I have OBX LBs with Y pipe
- Flowmasters muffler (in place of cat), dual out
- Aftermarket 20" wheels with 33" tires
- Some kind of lift
- Aftermarket touchscreen Android with backup camera
- efan not hooked up (going to swap it)
- 180 stat
- AEM Wideband (need to install)
- Possibly TB ported (not sure, pics below)
- Some kind of Diablo tune (tried loading canned tune but got error when downloading stock tune as there was a tune already loaded)

Possible Future Mods:
- CAI (Fred may still have a BFI clone he had made)
- Taurus efan with DC controller
- Ported TB
- Magnaflow muffler (replacing FM)
- Maybe 4.92 gears (unsure if its worth it)
- Jay Greene tune
- CAM (Fred said Spartan is best for mid range power for DD...open to ideas)
- I'm sure there's more I didn't think of or could be recommended.

I don't really plan to run at a track...could change. Lol. I've just always modded my vehicles since I was 17 so its in my nature. Still have to decide to what degree I want to mod.

First goal is obviously getting bolt ons situated. After that its up in there air.

Nice list of stuff so far. Just so you know I am a CMR tuner also. A cam, tune and some gears will help get that moving.
