Stripped the emblems off my gate and pulled the bumper to repair my screw-up when I rammed the quad trailer into the tailgate. Doh! Fortunately I did this stuff as a collision tech until I retired, so will work on it tomorrow then take it to the last shop I worked at and let a painter I know spray it....

Got the gate straightend out. Took a while waiting for a coupler for my water trap. Time for the paint shop. Being retired a few years now, I sure don't miss doing it 40+ hours a week...

Where did you purchase the flush mount from? Is this the one?

Yes sir, that is the one. all it took was a 2 inch hole sale and the nerve to drill into a piece of plastic on a truck that was only a couple days old. Get the hole centered and it fits like it's meant to be there

Changed out the license plate lights to some LED full replacements. Those metal clips that retain those housings are a bit of a pita to get aligned right the first time. But really not to bad to do.

stock lights, sad and pathetic....



Comparisons....


New LEDs installed

Got a set of Bilstein 4600's installed. The fronts were fairly easy, but what a PITA the stock rears were to get off with the top nuts acting like they were on with red locktite. Had to cut one of the nuts off with my Dremel, the other I was able to deal with it with by cutting out the bushing with a razor knife and get large vise-grips on the shaft.

Why in the world are the rears like that, when the front nuts spun off by hand once cracked loose? Especially since my truck spent most of its life in California and has no rust. I have changed shocks in every Ram I have owned, at least six and never came across this. Thank gawd for beer, I needed a couple after that fiasco.

Drag Link Safety Recall finally came in the mail. Threw it in the trash. I’m not going to let some “certified tech” weld on my draglink

Did the same thing a couple months back. Hit mine with loctite and a paint mark for easy inspection.
