Looking to MagnaFlow for a custom exhaust, the team bailed us out with a full converter-back performance exhaust system with large 5-inch polished tips. The rumble of the HEMI V-8 has us smashing the throttle every change we get. With more air exiting the 5.7L, we contacted Airaid for a performance air intake to send more air into the V-8. Bolting on in no time, the intake went in place and with it, our throttle response and gas mileage increased. Thanks to the five-speed automatic and MDS technology, we're getting almost 18 mpg with our HEMI.
Inside the Ram, our Laramie was virtually loaded with amenities such as heated leather seats, heated steering wheel, touchscreen navigation, hard-drive head unit, and power sliding back window. From the factory, our Ram had the optional 9-speaker Alpine audio system with an 8-inch sub under the rear seat. Due to time constraints, we left the interior factory plush and added some window tint to keep things private.
In less than four weeks, our stock Dodge Ram was given a subtle, yet custom makeover and was ready for the SEMA show. Be on the lookout for more '09 Dodge Ram trucks as more parts become available. Winning our Truck of the Year award for '09, the Ram is a great example of the future of fullsize trucks.
