Had the truck 6 years. My daily driver/play toy until I can get the Benz ready and registered.
1997 Dodge Ram 1500 (Black)
Currently rebuilding a replacement engine with upgraded intake manifold, exhaust headers, performance ignition components, and upgraded camshaft and valvetrain. Will be installing new transmission with rebuilt engine. Installed an Optima Redtop battery.
Factory interior is worn out but still comfortable. No upgrades beyond reupholstery and quality seat covers planned. Complete dash will be replaced with a factory unit or a custom built replacement depending on cost and availability.
Ranch style bumpers front and rear, LED taillights, 7" off road lights and fog/driving lights in front. Plan on having truck repainted in a few years. Will be replacing winch in front when money allows.
Pioneer radio/CD player and Rockford Fosgate speakers. Plan on installing a small amplifier with two 6"x9" speakers installed behind seat.
Installed 6" rear/5" front suspension lift with Rancho shocks and Rough Country dual steering stabilizer. Will be installing polyurethane bushings and new ball joints soon. Replaced steering linkage and joints with upgraded components. Will be replacing steering gear in the near future.
Wheel and Tire
Installed 15"x10" aftermarket wheels with 35x12.50R15 General Grabbers. Will be replacing wheels with 17" or 18" SRT wheels and 37x12.50 Nitto Trail Grapplers as money allows.
