    So basically i want my truck to look more aggresive.

    Mine is basically stock, vs this 05 2500 thats got a tonne of upgrades (lift, laramie bumper, no chrome,headlight). Just wondering how i can get a similar look

    Probably get identical aftermarket parts that will work on your truck. Use it as a reference.

Then look online to see where you can get the parts you need. That’s what I did. All my badges I removed and blacked out my self then put back on. Put 2” wheel spacers to give it a wider meaner stance and fender flares to cover the tires. Changed the grill and mirrors. Next I’m building dumpers front and rear and blacking them out. The most expensive parts of all this was the tires ($1500) then the wheels($250 for all 4). Everything else was $100 or less on eBay or amazon. She’s an 06. The middle is how I got her and top and bottom is how she in now.

    Like @MegaHemi5811 said, I agree that one of the quickest, easiest but not the cheapest way to get that meaner look is mild lift and bigger tires with either new wheels that have a negative offset or stock wheels with spacers to kick the tires out a little. My 2500 (sold and gone) was pretty much stock other than those two things and I would say it went from a Grampa truck to Bad Grampa truck.

    Yeah, Look around online and get the idea then try to find the parts you need online.

    I didn’t even lift or level my 06 Mega. She fit 35x12.50x20 on stock suspension just needed the wheel spacers to use stock 2018 black ram wheels.
