Default New from Oregon. 01 Ram 1500 318

Hey DF, I'm Davey from Oregon. Figured I should finally join after getting some ideas for a couple projects on my truck from this forum. Might as well share what I did and how they turned out for me.

I've got a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie 4wd with the 318 and a 5 speed. It's my daily driver at the moment and home project mule so not much done to it. I did just do an open element air cleaner, electric fan conversion, and finally ditched the silly Ram taillight covers that the dealer put on to hide the busted taillight (replaced both with new taillights off Ebay). It has the typical see through dash mod, flaking paint, and a ton of bumps and bruises from me using the heck out of it.

Future plans are new dash (LMC Truck), new front bumper (stock), bull bar, fog lights, maybe a leveling kit, and some wheels and tires. Motor wise I think I'll toss on some Mopar performance valve covers to dress it up a bit, and from there maybe a new intake and street cam just for fun.

I've had the truck for 10 years and have literally done nothing to it just drove it. It just keeps workin hard, so can't complain about anything really, it's been a great truck and figure I'll just keep it as long as it'll let me. I'm having fun modding it a bit and finally showing it some love after the 10 years of abuse.
