    I’ll throw a bid in on them.
    I damn sure wouldn’t pay for something I don’t have


    I Love My 2018 RAM 2500HD 4x4 Off Road. 6.4L. USMC (ret)

    Yeah, that was their deal breaker... They wouldn't take my truck for trade in if it didn't have wheels and tires and I didn't keep my stock wheels and tires. So I either leave my Salta HDs and Toyo M/T's on the truck or they put the PW wheels and tires on the truck. I'd rather have my Salta HDs and Toyo M/T's.

    We battled back and forth about it for close an hour. They gave me everything else I asked for except the wheels and tires or a credit on them.

    They actually gave me the number of miles on the truck off the total price. Plus my old truck payment rolled over since they last had the numbers. The whole deal actually came out to be way less than what it was before when all was said and done.

    Nothing was wrong with it. Just after much consideration and evaluation with regards to money output over time with regards to performance vs upgrading and a slightly higher payment for immediate performance it made more sense to trade up to the PW while I had a good chunk of positive equity in my old truck vs trading in laterals having negative toll over to thr new loan.

    And here it is after the Salta's were added and super low hanging side steps were deleted.

    Now to start with mods.

    The list:

    Purple Cranium front/back done in bright red with black emblems

    ARB compressor

    Morimoto LED fogs (their black horizontal kit)

    Got a buddy that builds custom off road rigs for Baja and rock crawling so gonna hit him up to do a custom set of sliders and maybe some extra under body protection.

    Rock lights

    Probably add some lights under the body that face to the rear for some extra light while wheeling at night. Any have recommendations there?

    AEV Switch Pod

    AEV Procal (when it's released for 2018)

    And as of now that's it. [​IMG]

    Congratulations! Truck looks great!

    OPT7 is having a pretty good sale right now, for Father's day, on some of the lights you're talking about. You might check them out. I was just on their site yesterday.

    Can't believe I forgot about this thread. Congrats on the new truck it already looks way better than it did at the dealership. Those steps were a joke haha.
