Cool My 04 Ram 1500 Mod thread
This is my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab 2wd 6.5' box.


Pics will be the way I got.

Took the Front seats out to clean it properly.
I have already Taken off the Cheap Hood scoop off.
Had the Oil changed to Full Penzoil Synthertic.

Ordered:
1 - New Aftermarket Headlights, Taillights & third brake light.
2 - Chrome door, tailgate handle & Fuel door covers
3 - Single DIN Installation Dash Kit, since the aftermarket radio was flopping around - & will be using My Alpine deck from my last car.

Other pics will come as things are done.

My drivers seat is worn out, I was looking for better used ones.
Had a thought today, took the drivers seat off the tracks & put the pass seat on drivers tracks & installed. Other than the back tilt handle & side skirt, they are interchangeable.
So don't need seats for now, & can put money to getting the leaks fixed.

Good job with the seat. I have that issue with mine but my fabric is also torn so looking at getting it all replaced. Keep posting your progress!

Oh ya, tomorrow should be a good day for me. It should be at least 9*C.
So plan to fix the power steering hoses (and flush), if I have time - fix the tranny line going to the cooler.
Then if I have time - see why both front door outer handles are loose or broken.

Also this week yet I will be installing the Chrome handle & mirror covers, exhaust tip.
I got the handle & mirror covers today.

I need to finish cleaning first, & I was planning to use autosol which is a metal polish.

Also did buy 3m scratch remover & after that maybe a complete buffing.
