No lowering kit for the 3/4-ton dodge was available, so rodney used shortened coil springs, custom fabricated Chassis Tech 2-inch lowering control arms, and a custom 3-1/2-inch flip kit, also from Chassis Tech. gas-charged Slamr shocks from Chassis tech keep the bumps under control. huge 24x10-inch KMC Monster chrome wheels were ordered in the eight-lug bolt pattern and wrapped in 305/35r24 Toyo Proxes tires.
Coolsby Customs in Bessemer, Alabama, painted the truck, but not before the addition of Street Scene Speed grilles, a welded-in rear roll pan, Sport Mirrors with turn signals, and a truck Covers uSa retractable aluminum bed cover. Black and silver DuPont paints were used for the two-tone with red graphics breaking up the two hues. looking good and running like a scolded dog, Rodney knew he needed an audio system to match the performance nature of the build.
Inside the doors is where the Ram really separates itself from other dodges at trucks shows. audio designs of Atlanta went to work making all of the Sony Xplod audio look and sound its best. out went the old seats that were replaced with Corbeau a4 microsuede racing seats with four-point harnesses. then, for added protection, a Kirk racing four-point roll cage was bolted in. the center console was removed in favor of a custom fiberglass enclosure housing four inverted 12-inch Sony Xplod subs. Fiberglass door panel inserts were stuffed with Sony Xplod 6-1/2-inch mids and highs and even the headliner received the custom treatment. a total of six Sony Xplod amps were mounted to a panel that was molded into the suede headliner and look down on lucky passengers. Monster Cable wire and connectors were used throughout. Other interior mods included the addition of an AIM racing steering wheel, Auto Meter performance gauges, and floor mats.
No need to try and race the Dodge, you'll lose. If you own a Dodge, you probably don't want to show against it, either. when we asked Rodney what he thought about the truck, he said "It's the perfect storm, because it is a perfect blend of all aftermarket aspects." we have to agree and can't wait to hear some Lynrd Skynrd blasting through the system.
