    Heres a few pics of the new lightbar. It's mounted up, wires still have to be run and everything but I like looking at it lol. Also replaced the clearance lights with the recon's. Oh and the customization of the cab guard, gotta rep the school lol.

    Also I want some input, I want black rims. I'm between the Rockstars and the moto metals. I honestly think the moto metals would be better because theres a little bit of chrome on them, and I still have a chrome grill/bumpers. But I want YOUR input (unless your username is stroker79, I already know how you feel about black rims lol)

    K, ive basically decided on moto metals. lol I found a pic of them on a red truck and theyr'e sick IMO. I just want black rims, I wanna make this truck mine. I guess more of the debate will be what tires to get?
    Alotta people like the nittos, BFG's, an./d I've heard good things about Hankooks. I'm pretty clueless as far as tires go, but obviously performance in snow/rain/mud is of importance. As is appearance as always lol.

    Yeah I agree, stock rims look best, and it does look angled. But otherwise looks good.

    It actually might be, we put a bolt through the front holes of the bracket to stabilize it so it didnt rattle around at all and all that needs to be done is loosening that bolt a little bit.

    It probably is, but it isnt too big of a deal right now but will get done.

    I hate the stock rims lol. Ive always liked black rims and right now nobodys gonna talk me outta them lol.

    In addition to the rims there will be:
    new tires (bigger also)
    tint
    power heated mirrors
    '08 badges painted black
    90W hideaways with 4 clear strobes
    Line x / Rhino liner
    Brighter headlights
    Possibly air bags
    Possible dual battery setup.

    The first 6 will definitely happen before winter though.

    I'm not a fan of totally stock trucks, nor do I like completely custom. I'm trying to find the middle ground between the two which I will hopefully be successful at.

    idk I have a bad feeling itd look like sh*t. Plus if I ever sell the truck I want to be able to keep the rims and just throw the stock set back on lol.

    Really? I second the sucky headlights lol. Ive wanted fog/driving lights for a while and might just do that instead of whole new headlights or whatever lol. Did yours come with the truck or did you buy them aftermarket?

    about the light bar, for some reason, all the dodge rams I have installed a back rack and light bar on they all come out the same way, they are angled up in the front.

    lol I know, the jester was actually my first choice. I wanna stick with a solid black wheel with chrome/silver in it so if I ever get a truck thats a diff. color other than white, red gray or black it wont look weird. I do like the wizard though, kinda similar to the moto metal.

    02, Where did you get your rims?

    JMO, the ones on the right look MUCH better than the ones on the left. Something about the finish on the black just gives it a better look. Too shiny on the other one on the left.
