Default Endo's 2012 Ram

Here are the official washed and waxed pictures. She's not perfect but she looks amazing. I read some detailing info last night so I will try to get more detailed this fall to try and remove some of the swirl marks and scratches.

Thanks for all the help you guys give

Not a big fan of the hood paint work, but going down the sides looks awesome! Either way bad ass truck!

Nice and visually loud though lol.

Overall dodge has a really nice truck here but I also upgraded from an 02 Chevy 1500. I do agree I think they went a little crazy with the hood. Less color would have been more but all the kids at my son's school can't help but make comments and thats what I think is fun too lol.

My plan is to black out the grill insert and the lower bumper insert. Then rhino line the side steps and the back bumper plastic and the ram heads

Also I'm strongly considering doing a custom POR15 undercoating and using the POR15 putty to full in body seams around the wheel wells.

Finally got my rear shocks replaced. Purchased the fox shox that BDS sell for the 4" lift. Test drive went good. Replacement went good except I needed some new tools. Had to get 6 to jack stands so I could get my truck up high enough and had to get an impact. Yes that is the Milwaukee fuel 1/2" impact. 700 ft/lb and 1100 ft/lb nut busting. So like I said started at 10 but with parts runs and lunch and watching my nephew didn't get done until 3:15 but really this is a quick job.

Shocks feel good. Makes me want to get the fronts done now lol.

Since getting my IR 20v cordless 1/2 impact I rarely use my air compressor anymore. Unless I need to grind or cut something. I've done r&r on multiple rear subframes and transmissions with it and no issues. Rebuilt a GTO front end Saturday with it. Expensive, but so worth it. I bought it due to a friends suggestion. He uses his to do field work on diesel motors.

The milwaukee works great. Air is a little faster from my experience (air feels like it delivers more impacts per minute) but this has the power to do the job. Had a tough time on lower passenger side had to get it about a 1/8 turn tighter before it would bust loose. But this thing should handle anything I through at it.

I went with the Milwaukee because I have a drill and 1/4" impact kit already so this made sense for me. It also has great reviews online. I got very lucky on the purchase too. Northern tool in Omaha NE had them marked 429 but when I rang out it was only 329. So you can't beat that. Came with 2x new 5 amp hour batteries charger and case.
