    Removed the purple tint and wrapped 5% all the way around. Repainted all the plastic trim, with the exception of bed caps which I will get done tomorrow. I have no idea if I am going to keep these SRT wheels, bronze paint job on them was not the best. Going to run me about $800 to have them sand blasted and powder coated which might not be worth it, but in the meantime, slapped some Rust-Oleum wrap on them so I at least have black wheels! A little pricier than plastidip, but this stuff appears to be much better. And had to throw those skull caps on them!

    Geesh, comes with one dome light. Took care of that problem. Put led strips in my SLT and haven't really been a fan, so went with 4 rock lights on the ST. Much cleaner and much brighter.

    Bed caps and door handles needed renewal. Have used the duplicolor clear before to renew and it worked great, but decided to spray black on this one and it all looks brand new again. $15 well spent, really cleaned it up.

    Snagged this brand new JBL 12 GT Bass Pro for $110 and two new sets of Pioneer 6x9 TS-A6966R's for $85 Finally going to have some decent sounds.

    I think I just had an epiphany. I like lifted trucks, outside of Ram, still like the look of just about all of them lifted. Realized I am not seeing stock or lowered trucks from the competition that I like. Ram just has it going on all the way around!
