    I'll do like others and use this as a build thread. Just purchased a 2018 Ram 1500 SLT 4x4 Quad Cab a few weeks ago and have since done a few things to it

    Truck Info:
    2018 Ram 1500 SLT
    4x4
    3.6L
    3.21 Gears


    Mods so far(to be updated as I go):
    GEMPRO LED License Plate Lights
    SuperBrightLED Reverse Lights
    Rough Country Mats


    Plans for the future:
    Barricade Pioneer Sidesteps (ordered and on the way)
    Pedal Commander (ordered and on the way)
    Bed Cover
    2.5in Leveling Kit
    Wheels and Tires (still up for debate on brands to use)
    Sport LED Tail Light Conversion Kit
    8.4 Screen Conversion Kit
    Exhaust (probably the Hemi swap deal)
    Performance mods (which ever I can find that are practical)

    Comments/Opinions welcomed, well aware of the "shoulda bought a hemi" fellas but I have my own reasons for buying the 3.6.

    Got my Pedal Commander put on today, first impressions, throttle is way more sensitive. Sport +1 was where I initially had it set, but backed down to City when I chirped tires at a red light. Going to be testing it more in the coming days.

    Also went to the store and came back to my Barricade Pioneers, If I didn't have to work tonight and tomorrow night they would have been put on, but going to wait till either Friday afternoon when I wake up or Saturday morning if I can squeeze into our shop

    Added some C Shaped LED Tail Lights, install was easy, maybe 20 minutes. Lights are plug and play, drove around an hour with no codes. (Removing the dealer decal monday)
