This is the place to post up on your latest addition, modification, expense, or project on your truck! It can be anything from adding a tiny window sticker, to installing jet engines in the bed. It doesn't matter! The idea is to have a place to show off what you're doing and pick up ideas/ask questions of others. Pictures aren't required, but are always nice. If you do a full-blown how-to or modification worthy of it's own thread, plug the link here!

I'll start. Today I removed the manufacturers emblem from my grille guard and added a Cummins emblem. Total investment: $5 from Geno's. Total time: 10 minutes.

Got mine 2 weeks ago. Went back to the dealer and had them upgrade the factory headunit for navigation. It was "Nav ready" on the lot and as part of the sales deal, I told them I wanted it "Nav available". Should get it back tomorrow.

I have more plans for her so I will be adding to this thread later.

Just finished the cabin air filter mod, as detailed here:

http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/2010-2012-general-discussion/331580-cabin-filter-mod-video.html

It's pretty straight forward. I bought the kit from Geno's for $26:

'10-'13 Dodge Ram Cabin Air Filter Kit-Geno's Garage

I must have missed in the directions/tutorial where it covers the "unbelievably sharp metal bracket under the dash that will slice your thumb open like a surgeon's blade". After removing the single screw in the upper glove box, you push it out from behind. When mine finally popped loose, my thumb dutifully slid right along this bracket. After a little first aid, I finished the job. Took about 30 minutes or so. Oh, it's also easier to cut out the plastic piece if you unplug the HVAC connector and tuck it out of the way:

Sock puppet, in your original post the Louvers on your hood almost appear to have chrome inserts in them or they just look darker? Is that just a shadowed picture or have you added some visible goodies there?

I added the vinyl "shark gill" stickers. Bought them on Ebay for $20. I chose the gloss black because of my white/black scheme, but they offer them in many different colors.

Like every 1-piece welded guard or bumper I've ever had it's not 100% perfect, but the picture seems to exaggerate it a bit.

They are oem running boards. I bought them from the dealer. Easy to put on. I have to admit the first one I bolted up I slid out from under the truck and noticed it was on backwards. Lol.

The part # for them is 82211496af

Ordered a Pure Performance 2.5" Max Travel Lift, some 35" Toyo Open Country MT tires and 20" RBP 94R black machined wheels. Don't know how long I will be at work still, so don't know exactly when I will be putting everything on, but I know it will be waiting for me :drool2:

I admit it, I did a "grocery-getter" mod. :S:

On occasion I take my wife's car on a business trip so she's left with the truck. One of here complaints was having things slide to the front of the bed. I had this bungee net lying around, so I installed some hooks on my tool boxes to hang it from. Comes out in seconds and the hooks can be removed without much fuss if they are in my way.

I know, not very manly, but I've gotta keep the wife happy.:whip:

Not much of a mod, but I finally got and installed my DT Solid Tow adjustable hitch. :thumbsup:

Nice hitch. I went with the rapid hitch. Wish my 12' would have come with a class V hitch. No problems with class iv so far.
