The DuPont Flame Red was laid down, and then he masked off the graphics and flames along the sides of the Ram. House of Kolor Tangelo Pearl and Sunset Pearl were used to make the Ram stand out, while also giving the truck a subtle muscular appearance. To finish off the exterior, a JBM upper and lower billet grille was installed to give the Ram some extra attitude. Patience was beginning to run thin, and although Dennis knew the truck looked killer, he wanted more than looks. After a quick glance inside, we realized Dennis did wait and finish off the Ram's custom potential with a huge dose of paint, audio/video, and creativity.

Dennis and friend Sean Norcross went on a mission to make the inside of the Ram a custom showcase, building on factory good looks and enlisting a great deal of imagination. Alpine was the manufacturer of choice for the audio/video goodies. The CVA-1005 head unit is connected to an Alpine surround sound processor, which sends the signals to two Alpine MRV F450 amps pumping juice to the highs, mids, and Alpine subs in the custom center console. The sounds can be enjoyed while watching DVDs, playing PS2, or even while listening to the Alpine XM satellite radio. The custom-molded and painted center console houses the Alpine CD changer, sound processor, and gauges/switches for the 'bags.

The monitor and DVD player were molded into the painted dash, and a Billet Specialties Chicayne steering wheel finishes off the dash modifications. Taylor's Upholstery of Vossburg, Mississippi, is responsible for the red vinyl additions to the factory fabric seats, keeping the color-matched theme going strong through the interior.A killer system without the proper voltage is an expensive, ineffective investment. To ensure the alternator has plenty of juice, two Optima Red Top batteries were relocated inside the bed in a custom enclosure. The engine also received some attention with a custom air intake, Flowmaster exhaust, and a relocated computer/fuse box to clear the deuce-deuces.

Dennis' patience in building this truck paid off, and speaking of paying off, Dennis will be paying off this investment for quite some time. But, ask him if it was worth it and we are sure he would reply with a definitive yes. Pleasure is easy to come by now; all it took was patience, and now Dennis truly has perfection.
