Will you be able to get those 15s to clear the calipers? Thought you had to do a little grinding on the calipers to get them to clear....maybe it's just the Ram. Looking good!

Nah the calipers are fine. The 16's are clearing with no problems or grinding. So the 15's should do good too. Definitely gonna be a project but I'm up for it!

Changed the cluster and display to blue!



My pile of stuff continues to grow..


Everything will be done by June 13th because I'm going to a big car show in Durant.

Looking good!

The calipers should be fine with 15's, that's what my Dakota came with stock.

You should put the 20" R/T replicas on there. I always loved the look of those and came close to ordering them for my Dakota. I know Lakeshore Wheel and Tire used to sell them but their site isn't active anymore.

Thanks man! I think I've put the R/T wheels on the back burner for now. I've got higher priorities for the truck right now but they're definitely in the plans for later on!

Got a box built and sub mounted yesterday! Gonna hook up the amps and run all the wire next weekend with some help. Then the new carpet will go in and interior will be done!

Also gonna probably get around to ripping that horrid box out today and welding in a new piece of sheet metal in the cab.

Yup! Wanna make sure it'll rattle some brains

We got the box pulled out and sealed up the cab! Now I know some of you all may not totally agree with the route I took on sealing, but honestly I think this is going to work just as well as a thin little piece of sheet metal. The wood was primed on both sides facing the outside, plus some very awesome sealant was used to seal up the sides. All in all, I feel this is going to be much better then that stupid box!

Pictures!






Also, used the rubber boot that came originally with the truck and put it around the outside as an extra seal.


Now onto getting the system all hooked up and carpet put in. That'll be this coming weekend!

Just an update... The stereo build was a farce.. I'm just running the door speakers now. But it's all good, because I wanna go fast

I had it torn down for about 2 1/2 weeks doing all of my engine modifications. Well I'm happy to say that it's all done now! Only thing left to do is go get the exhaust put on Thursday. Also need to get an SCT tune.

See what you all think!

And these are the 1.7 Roller Rockers. Pretty shiny!
