    a month or two ago I got my first truck it wasn’t pretty but it got the job done but it was a 2wd v6 and I wanted to do some things to it that wouldn’t be practical so I held off for a while and to this day I haven’t done anything to it. Well if things go to plan this weekend I will be getting a new truck. This one is a 03 ram 1500 quad cab 5.7l v8 4WD, what are some things you guys would recommend I do? The truck already had a k&n cold air intake. If you recommend a lift kit I don’t wanna go any higher then 3in. All feedback is appreciated

    I would level it, and put some nice wheels and aggressive 33s on it.

    Another New England Dodge :cheers:

    4 matching wheels is a good place to start :)

    Be sure to keep the rear fender wells clean during the winter, they tend to rust out. My wife's cousin even recommended drilling a small hole at the top of the wheel well to get it to drain better. Mine's an 08 and they don't seem to rot as quickly, So I didn't do it.
