New "shop" truck, so....lets start this build thread!



Truck details:
2016 Ram 1500 Bighorn 4x4
5.7L Hemi
3.21 (eh) with LSD
Full console, NAV, heated seats......I think thats it.

Purchased on 3/20/2017 (leftover 16, gotta love the deals) with ~ 250 miles on her (was a dealer trade).

Stock photo:



The original intent was to purchase the truck simply to use as a test mule for lighting. As we all know.....the 15+ trucks are bitchy with the updates that where made in the computer system. The truck was picked up from the dealer and driven directly to Diode Dynamics for testing. Picked her up on 3/31 to bring home for a few modifications.

Figured I'd do a few things......"the essentials", so I called Matt from Moe's and ordered up a few things:
Bak Revolver X2 Tonneau Cover
Bedrug Mat & Tailgate Mat
Mufflex Delete Pipe
Moe's 5" Exhaust tips

Got the mats and tonneau installed Friday evening:







Saturday morning, got up and decided to play with the exhaust......this damn thing had to go:



Tips where installed as well, and a short video when I fired her up the first time



Debadged......(pics later)

While out in the garage......I installed the Kicker PRAMCQ13 (KICKER | PRAMCQ13). This was a bit fun...already being a smidge sore from crawling around under the truck on concrete.....and contorting a bit to put the 4.1 amp under the dash.....fun. But....got it in, and it sounds pretty damn good! I'm used to 2 subs, 1000w+ amps.....just didn't want to get that crazy on this one. This Kicker setup fits the needs, and - 100% pnp. Hard to beat that!

After this was done.....I took her back to Diode. They'll have her for a bit while my next couple rounds of goodies make their way in

Diode is testing each and every circuit....even the pesky plate lights

I'm not sure anything "new" will come out, but mostly a modification to existing products to speak to the Ram computers in a way that doesn't piss them off.
