Pleased with the newfound suspension, the window sticker-equipped truck then went to the experts at The Tint Shop in West Covina, California. While at The Tint Shop, the 17-inch wheels were replaced with the ultimate in rolling excitement - a set of 24x10-inch Forza Sportina wheels with custom-flame spinners. The huge wheels are wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion tires measuring a not-so-dealership-like P295/40R24. The Tint Shop is also responsible for the great-looking ghost flames and flamed window tint.
Now, paint, suspension, and wheels are important, but if you don't like the interior, what is the point? Addressing this issue, Joe delivered the Ram to Air Stream interiors in Huntington Beach, California. There, the stock leather seats were re-covered in two-tone body-colored Katzkin leather. The Ram was looking classy, but lacked the audio/video appeal desired by custom truck owners.
Joe had discussed several scenarios with the crew at The Tint Shop and decided to pursue their custom ideas. Replacing the stock head unit is a motorized Icon TV with AM/FM, CD, DVD and TV-tuner capabilities. JL Audio components replace the factory speakers, and two 10-inch Rockford Fosgate subwoofers are mounted in a custom enclosure underneath the rear seat. Two Fosgate Punch amps power the entire system. Joe wanted to add function to the sport truck's form and also provide some extra ponies for the Hemi V-8.
Calling on his friends at JBM Truck Accessories in Orange, California, Joe ordered a DJ Motorsports flamed grille, a Sir Michaels roll pan, a Gaylords lid, and Gibson square exhaust tips. Exiting underneath the roll pan, the 'Cuda-esque tips provide the tunes from the Flowmaster muffler - expertly installed at Mike's Muffler in El Monte. Adding some power to the mix is a Volant cold-air intake with a matching blue top. Totally custom is the only way to describe this truck, complete with a warranty and a payment plan. We want to know why this truck wasn't available when it was our time to purchase a new vehicle. So go ahead, give in to the cravings and sign on the dotted line. At least this time you'll get what you want and how you want it.
