I have been on here forever, and gotten a lot of great ideas from you guys.
It seems like the new cool thing to do is to have a build thread. So here is my truck so far... I will keep this updated as I go...
I haven't gotten into my truck as far as a lot of you, but I do things as I need to. I have come across a few problems and take care of them as I go... all in all, this truck has been GREAT!
I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Big Horn QCLB 4WD with the 5.9 Cummins. I am a die hard Amsoil
user and dealer. I am not the typical believer and worshiper, I know I run a great product and swear by it. There are other good products out there, but I like Amsoil best for my truck. To date, my truck has a SRT hood and painted grill (will be replaced shortly with another one). I have a built trans (no idea what, the PO built it, but has held up). I run my Smarty S-06 on Level 5 to play it safe. The truck has a 4" black stainless steel Diamond Eye exhaust system and a AFE Stage II CAI. I have Autometer Phantom II gauges in the A-Pillar. I replaced the rear bumper with an unknown, heavy duty one, and have LEDs in the license plate bulbs, as well as ANZO taillights. The truck has an AFE Deep Transmission Pan and a MagHytec rear. I run 305/65R17 Mickey Thompson ATZs, that currently have about 75,000 miles on them and they are still going strong. The truck runs on Bilstein 5100 shocks all the way around as well as BD Diesel Sway Bar Links.
Here are some pics from stock to now:
A couple day's after I picked it up.. nice and dirty already:
I ended up having to replace all of the basic front end parts after the dealer I bought it from didn't do a proper inspection when I bought it (I guess I failed to do the same thing as well). Shortly after, new brakes and a windshield went on as well...

A picture next to my buddies truck when I got back from the Marine Corps in 2011. I added the Cummins C off the side of my truck to the grill in this picture
After an incident with ice and being forced into a pole to avoid other cars, I had to replace the entire cooling pack, front bumper, grill, and hood (added an SRT hood) and painted grill

Swapped a buddy my factory chrome rear bumper for this one... nice free upgrade
