I bought this 2014 bighorn ram used, it was a year old with 22,000 miles on it. When I saw it on the lot for sale? I had to have it! I could almost see it already moded. This is what it looked like when I purchased it.

The first thing I did was wash, and wax it, then I added smoked rain guards. Within the next year, I started to slowly bring my vision to fruition. I started with adding Bridgestone 32x10 tires, pinstriping, putting on the Mopar stripe, and hood decal along with all chrome door-handles, fuel cover, HEMI badge above the sliding rear window, and a 20-inch dodge logo on the tailgate, also bought RAM style floor mats for the front and back, and lastly installed a K&N cold air intake. I knew this was just the beginning.!

The second-year I took it a bit further, I decided to go with a more aggressive look with the tires and went with BF-Goodrich KO2 35X10 all-terrain tires, chrome custom rocker panels, Chrome pillar posts in channel rain guards, tie-down bed bars, I swapped out my RA1 head unit for an RA4, and changed out the the dash cluster to the 7 inch, also added a smoked bug guard and chrome-trimmed it, and Mopar mud guards. lastly, I installed a remote start.

I thought it looked pretty cool at this point but! I still had a long way to go, I was trying so hard not to spend too much cash, so I did every mod except the lift kit. for the next year I kinda went a bit crazy. So I saved as much cash as possible and stressed a couple of credit cards and did this! I swapped out the KO2's and replaced them with 37X12.5 inch Kanati mud hogs and 20x10 Moto Metal rims added a 4-inch superlift kit, wheel well flares, LED headlights, cab lights, taillights, interior lights, hood lights in the ports, changed out the bug guard to chrome. added a fiberglass sport hood, Flowmaster exhaust W/5 inch tailpipe tips, Installed Clazzio seat covers to match the color scheme of the truck, re pinstriped the entire truck, I also swapped out the ra$ head unit and put in a 10 inch Android, I also wood grain and chromed my interior, and then painted and lightly chromed the chassis of the truck.

This was a prety tough look, BUT!! I still wasn't completely happy with it yet! so I kept tweaking it even though I had already spent enough at this point. But to be truthful? this will probably be my last vehicle in life so I'm taking it as far as I can to please my self. I kept going through all the blogs and U-tube vids and saw more ideas I liked, and this is what I came up with. I changed most of my badging from chrome to black and red, I customized a Ram Rebel aftermarket grill to match the overall look of the truck, installed Morimoto XB LED headlights, a new bumper, changed out the fog lights, swapped out the fiberglass hood for a real one and added a completely different decal to it that I customized too, also added 9 LED's to the hood vents along with the Dodge 345 emblem on the hood the RAM letters on the front grill also light up red from behind. added tow-haul mirrors and did all the programming with an OBD2 Link also programed the directionals on the mirrors to stay lit while not blinking, I swapped out the second pair of taillights for a smoked LED set and also added a triple light bar under the tailgate, I added triple directional arrows behind the long view mirrors. This thing lights up like a Christmas tree at night. there are still so many other things I have done to this truck I still can't remember them all even though they are right in front of me. I defiantly have many parts to sell, that's for sure.

I would love to say this is final? BUT" somehow I can't seem to. there is always something that catches my eye. As a few guys on this site have said! One does not want to overdo it and make a nice truck look cheesy.

The mori-moto headlights came stock like that, the spyder headlights I had to take apart and paint and pinstripe the inside of them for that effect.

Nicely done! I would probably stop after 3rd picture. But, that's just me.
I hope the truck is 8sp not a 6sp.

How did the install on the cab lights go?
To tell you the truth! they went in fairly easy, I bought two sets just in case. I've had them in for three years and no leaks yet!
But I'm also a plumber, and am really good at preventing leaks.

Yea! she's an 8 speed, I haven't adjusted the truck yet for the 37's and it's shifting kind of separately at times but it does well.
Sucks up the gas fast!!! 10 miles to the gal.

What did you do with the colour match headlights? Looks good!
I still have them! but one of them has a leak and during the winter some water gets behind the lens and makes one of the light function improperly. Hell if you lived close to me I'd give them to ya.

Looks slick man, I would venture to ask how and where you got all the goodies for the interior? I am still customizing mine and the interior of yours is similar to how I want mine to look
