Never really did a complete "build thread" on this truck, why start now?
Bought the truck 12ish years ago bone stock, swore ide never drink or eat in it. 01' Ram 2500 Laramie, and she was cherry. Fast forward 6 years later, and let's cut the everything apart. Kind of a Swiss army knife. 4x4, functional 8' bed, great fuel range, good power, 4.0s and 40's. Heated seats and cup holders. It's like the biggest, coolest, Swiss army knife. But also incredibly impractical for a offroad build. Perfect.
The beginning of the link stages started out with some hack job in Simi Valley, TT motorsports or something. (Jk....?)
Tommy built the bed cage, mounted the links and rear shocks, and stretched the bedsides until the tore to clear 40s. I ran the truck for a year or so, until I realized that the truck did pretty fucking good...good enough that it needed a cage. So naturally, buy huge shocks, seats, harnesses, fuel cell, etc. Cut interior apart, slap one or two tubes In to start the cage, then let truck sit for 5 years. To marinade. Finally got In a position where I could get it finished, and I took it to Nick at NV Fab. He absolutely killed it. They finished the cage, mounted the front shocks, fuel cell, etc. Even leather wrapped a center consol to match the seat colors. Enough writing. It's super cool, it's almost sold like twice, and it's still here. Just need more trips to get it out.
Photo dump!!

It's a 24v. 12v trucks are cool and all, but electronic tuning is life.
