Been busy doing mods to the truck. Just thought I'd share them with you guys. I installed all of these myself so if anyone has any questions let me know because I figured out some tricks along the way.

1) MSD performance coils with champion iridium plugs
2) Diablo sport trinity tuner and pcm
3) Diablo sport oil catch can
4) LED lights all around (3rd brake light, license plate lights, interior lights)
5) AVS low profile vent visors
6) sky mount gun rack
7) mopar Rambox gun and rod holders
8) truck bed steps (bed step, bed step 2)
9) bakflip f1 tonneau cover
10) 35x12.50 toyo A/T tires
11) wireless QI interior phone charger
12) Blackhawk Sherpa mount for gun holster
13) Dremeled out the hood vents so they are functional
14) have tuned and boosted CB radio to install still. Thinking about a custom mount to put it inside the consol but on the drivers side recessed into the consol. Still working on ideas for mounting.

Pictures to follow: ;)

By far the diablo sport tuner is one of my favorite mods. Instant throttle response and better shift points. Plus the guages you get and can customize are awesome. Definitely a lot of horsepower unleashed. On the 0-60 dinner on the Trinity tuner I'm running 6 sec times. Pretty good for a truck this weight.

Just a couple pictures of the engine mods. And before someone says it no I'm not going for stuff that's not going to void the Warranty. I've got some mechanics that are close friends that work at the dealership so I'm not worried about voiding it.

Truck looks good.
Not being a wiseguy, but those MSD coilpacks are a total waste of good money when the stockers are good to 1500 hp. No performance gains whatsoever. I'm well over 1200 hp with my 449 ci hemi & stock coil packs.
Just sayin that's a lot of money for red coil packs on a stock motor.

Well thought I'd give them a try plus I get them at a discount. Plan on possibly doing a supercharger at some point. These packs create more juice and work better at higher temp anyways. Maximum spark means max ignition means max HP

Uhhhhh, no, they don't. They've been tested against OEM by 4 independent reputable sources, ask me how I know.

Would be cool if we can get a Rebel badge in those gauges somewhere :D

I'm thinking of installing that too. Do the gun holders bolt on?
Yes, a flat polymer plate bolts to the bottom of your rambox then you have four quick thumb screws per upright mount (2 mounts) that holds either guns or rods. You loosen the thumb screws and spin to switch back and forth between rifle or rod holders. Neat idea and fit is great. If your into shooting/hunting i would definitely recommend, if you dog hunt its perfect because its quick and easy to get to. Only complaints are 1) kit only comes for one side not both and 2) the price is deceiving because you'd expect your getting 2. I paid around $200+. Cheapest I could find it was on amazon.

Side note: I wanted to post a picture of the QI charger for you guys. It mounts in that little holder under your consol controls. This thing is great if you have a QI compatible phone. The company I bought this from has a great fit and finish on product. The mount looks almost factory and it works great. The light will show positive charging green or idle blue. The indicator light is perfect brightness at night so doesnt bother you a bit. See picture


Out of curiosity, has anyone done any changes to throttle bodies? I was debating on giving a larger one a shot, adding a cold air and playing with some tuning on the diablo sport.

How do you find charging times to be with that charger? As fast as with plugging into a wall outlet or what? I heard these can take longer at times.
