    A decent custom e-mail or dyno tune will make a noticeable difference in that little 4.7.My old 2013 truck was a 4.7 ,after all was said and done with all the available bolt-ons for the later 4.7 and with a custom dyno tune it made just under 250 rwhp on a Mustang dyno,and would give stock Hemi's a run for their money and pass them wide open,lol.Nice little truck,like what you've done with it.Link to my old thread on the truck if you're interested.

    yup I did! I like the painted look, but I hate rock chips more! I love the fact you noticed this detail with the bumper. This was the biggest debate in my head over this build this far.

    My though was this if I went chrome with the bumper it would still flow with the chrome side steps and meet up in the back with the dual tips and the chrome and black RAM tail gate emblem. Knowing I was going to be going with the chrome bumper was also what delayed me from removing the side door lettering at first.

    But hey, I'm open to ideas,thoughts, criticism, likes dislikes let me know! :)

    Thanks for the information "Wild one" I did ordered a pedal commander to get the throttle to respond more and man to your point just doing that turned the truck into a launching beast! I have tunes for my Mustang and I was shocked when I saw how much Torque the truck had, that is when I found and went through the papers and saw 3.92. I was like thanks dad! I will check out that link for sure on your 4.7L

    My 13 was a virtual clone to your Dad's 11,i colour matched the bumpers though,and added the Sport/Performance hood to it. The little truck was quicker wide open then I thought it'd be,with the speed limiter opened up and the dyno tune,it would put up 215 km's or roughly 135mph,for a little 4.7 it was kind of fun,lol. Mine only had 3.55's,3.92's were it's next mod,but I ended up trading it off before that happened.3.92's with the 4.7 would be a great combo.

    There's a link to a couple pic's of it in this thread ,you'll have to join High Performance Rams on facebook to probably see them though.
