    meh, just my personal opinion here but, SRT pieces should only be on SRT's. I cant stand seeing a "SRT" neon go by and its like.... Nope, that actually wasnt a SRT just some idiot wishing it was lol or a ram sport with SRT badging and bumper just makes me face palm. idk just my personal opinion. Rims and motor swaps are one thing, body pieces, kits, wings, badges etc etc is a whole nother

    I’ve seen a photo of a lifted srt and I just can’t stand all those extras if I had a srt I would make it look normal like all of ours lol

    I think an srt hood can go on any normal truck. Even from your viewpoint. I personally don't care for the srt spoiler. Even on an srt, I'd replace it with the Daytona wing, something aftermarket, or just remove it altogether

    The srt front bumpers are a solid meh. At least in comparison to the regular sport/Laramie bumper of the 02-05 trucks. The sport/Laramie bumper of the 06+ isn't as good imo, so I'd go srt on that or maybe something else or something modified or custom.

    Body cladding is nice to me. Makes the truck look more defined and distinguished rather than just some disappearing round shape. I wanna get it for my truck, but it wouldn't match without the rear end conversion, of which to get, I'd have to purchase srt bed sides and the rear bumper.

    I am very happy to report I got perfect (hopefully lol) cold start video as well as a WOT fly by 0-60. Had the camera set at the perfect spot so the truck is screaming as it passes. Really wish I woulda thought to plug my trinity in and record the 0-60 so I could actually see what I ran (or close to) but didn't even think about it, o well. I'm praying the sound is good but from playing it back on the tiny little action cam mic it sounds like it recorded great so I'm stoked!

    Bad news is apparently my card reader is shipping from like China or something because I checked when the heck it's gunna arrive and it says NEXT Tuesday up yours Amazon lol

    Pretty sure you can get an adapter from whatever card it uses to USB from Walmart or the like for no more than 15 bucks absolute max.

    Been slowly piecing together a full system for the truck. Only gunna tear it apart once so been waiting to have everything to install but i just ordered the last few pieces. Crutchfield was having a good sale on some stuff so i got $110 bucks off a pair of 6.5 component fosgates and a 4 channel JBL amp so just ordered those, its gunna be a cheap frankensteined system lol but i dont care i just want some sound. Out of my 7 speakers only my two dash speakers work and thats because they are new kickers i put in so itll be great having some actual sound :anitoof:

    Last few pieces to the sound puzzle came in today, props to crutchfield as always for some of the fastest free shipping I ever seen. Now i gotta go through my 2 giant garbage bags full of wire and install stuff lol and see if I have enough of everything I'm gunna need. It's just a budget sound upgrade but I'm pretty damn stoked about it to be honest [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
