    4th Gen Dodge Owners? Let's see em'!

    AzPredator, I'm glad to hear you've had good luck with the 5.7 as well! Casey, I would take you up on that offer if I still had my '04! This new one ain't near the race truck that last one was. But then again, I been babying this new one and haven't tested it out yet JIM-

    Price and proven prior history with the 5.7 that I had in my '04. I had a budget I needed to stay under and to get a brand new truck I had to stick with the 5.7. I loved that engine in my last truck so I had no problems with buying another. My last truck had a bunch of aftermarket add ons done to the engine so this new one isn't as peppy or fast but still has plenty of power to pull any of my trailers. JIM>

    Put my first scratch in it today too...that hurt! It'll get less painful as I build the collection tho, but man that first one sucks! Ha! JIM>

    I finally got my truck home but they installed the wrong wheels and the fender flares haven't been painted yet so she's gotta go back soon hopefully to get done right. So far this beast is awesome! I definitely need to look into the various mods to increase MPG, I don't know how accurate the computer is and I probably jacked it up by constantly hitting the "reset" function hoping it'll show me some better numbers! LOL! I didn't buy it for good gas mileage so I just try my best to ignore it!

    AzBob, that is awesome! SirRoyal, they tried talking me into smaller tires so the tire pressure sensors would work, I told them I didn't care about the sensors as I tend to air down when on hunts anyway so it would be an issue either way. I didnt know anything about overriding, I'll look into it, hopefully there's a way to just disconnect it or turn it off?!

    Sir Royal, from what I've heard you won't be disappointed with those BFG's as well! Did you have to do any cutting or do you have any rubbing with the leveling kit? Thanks, JIM>

    Thanks Casey will do that! My dad and several others I know have gotten around 50K out of them as well.

    Thanks, 14.5 is better than I thought! I was getting around 9-10 mpg with my last truck! I think you meant to say "+"45 offset on factory. The "-" offsets are pushing away from the truck. I went with the 18x9 with a -12mm offset but was wanting them to sit flush or just barely outside the outer edge of the fender flares. After looking at yours I'm guessing mine will definitely be sitting outside that edge more than i had expected. I like the wider stance but with a black truck and exposed rock throwin' tread it's a bad deal! Plus I'm having them install the factory fender flares which don't stick out and protect as well as Bushwackers would have. Oh well, it'll look cool but I may be having to spray Rhino Lining on the lower half of my truck! Ha! And YES, carwashes will be a weekly event i'm sure, at least until I get it scratched up enough that it doesn't matter!

    I drove out to the dealership today and saw my truck for the first time! Still on the trailer but hopefully in my driveway by next Tuesday with the makeover complete!

    I just realized I said I'm getting the "Terra Grapplers" but I've actually got the "Trail Grapplers". I was able to get them for quite a bit cheaper than the Toyo's but I do like those! I've loved my Kevlar MTR's but this truck will see a lot more pavement than my last so had to find something that lasts longer.

    Casey, I didn't research the tires very much, I just know several folks who have gotten great mileage out of those Nittos. I almost went with the 20's but that's 2" less air cushion to ride on! I'm sure this 2500 is gonna ride a lot stiffer than my 1500, need all the air cushion I can get, probably should've went with smaller but they don't look as good! JIM>

    Sir Royal, do you remember or know what the offset was on your rims?

    Sir Royal, you and I were almost twins! I had a white 5.7 found back east but the deal fell thru so jumped on a black one that was found closer. I even almost went with the same rims but couldn't decide so I closed my eyes and just picked one! Your truck looks awesome! Not that I'm too worried about it as I know it's not great, but what MPG are you getting? Thanks, JIM>
  15. Howdy all, it's too late to change my mind or change my add-on's but I currently have a 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 being built. I researched as much as I could stand it online and basically picked out the truck, lift, tires and wheels without ever seeing any of it in person and that's pretty scary! I still haven't even seen the stock truck! Fingers are crossed it all comes out OK, will find out next week! My current truck is an '04 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi, 6" lift w/37' kevlar MTR's. Aside from sinking it in a "puddle" in MX and having to buy a new engine, my current truck has been amazing and has never gotten stuck or broke down (even with damaged engine from the "puddle" incident it drove me home)! Because of my experience with my current truck I decided to stick with Dodge and the same engine, even got same color but not really by choice! I went with a Pro Comp 4" with 35" Terra Graps wrapped on 18x9" Fuel Kranks. Truck is gonna be crazy shiny but I'll have no problem scratching it up quick! Who else has a 4th generation Dodge? Post up pics or thoughts on how you like it, things to get, things to watch out for, etc! Thanks! JIM>
