If you've been to the Forum on, you've probably seen posts by RAM MAN. David has made made quite a few posts on the forum, but he's also made quite a few modifications to his truck as well. Starting off, he has a Reflexxion steel Cowl Induction hood, Race Truck Trends front bumper with 7" driving lights, Street Scene Sport mirrors, Keystone rear roll pan with dual exhaust cutouts and Gibson stainless steel "Cuda style" exhaust tips. The exhaust is a dual system, split out the rear of a Magnaflow cat back exhaust, along with a custom 2 1/2" "Y" pipe and a Magnaflow performance Cat. Under the hood you'll find a Ram Air box, "QuickD" throttle body, Kenne Bell power pulleys, MOPAR Hi Performance wires, NGK plugs and Royal Purple synthetic in everything David can pour it in. The truck gets a little something extra from the MOPAR Hi performance computer and Trango Stage II Shift kit, along with a Dana Posi rear end. Other upgrades include a RAM "Sport" grill, Aluminum billet 3rd brake light cover that says "RAM", V-TECH RAM tail light covers, 50W Halogen back up lights and V-TECH front marker masks. Handling is improved by a rear anti-sway bar and 2" dropped rear shackles. Inside you'll find a stainless steel dash kit, MOPAR lockable under seat storage, and Katzkin Leather Interior. Finally, David added the MOPAR hard tonneau cover and gave the entire truck the Dual racing stripe treatment.
