Nice rig! Any info about the wheels? I'm planning to change the rims on my truck and I am looking for options. I kinda like the street look of american force wheels (https://4wheelonline.com/American-Force-TruckWheels.1180) but I'm still undecided on what to get.

Those are Black Rhino Warlords. I have Black Rhino sidewinders on my tundra and love them. All their wheels are hub center and donít utilize a center cap. I hate center caps. They always get scratch or break and my rotating tires a bigger pain in the ***.

As others said they are Black Rhino warlords in Matte gunmetal. The tires are Bfg all terrain in 285/65/20 size. The truck is stock height with snowplow package, there is no rubbing at all and i can fit through a 7' carwash with 1" to spare.

I'm not a big fan of the bro look, so went with tires and wheels that fit. :D

I wasn't sure if i would like the dark wheels and almost went with some chrome ones. But after having it for a while, i really like the look.

I have had to upgrade a bit for awhile. Still waiting on getting mine back. The tow with this to LOTO was a breeze. LV-LOTO in 19 hours straight run. Only 3 stops. 80 gal fuel cell in back. Set the cruise at 5 mph over limit never looked back.

Hoping to get mine back next week after lady turned left in front of me as I was traveling about 35mph. Couldn't believe it. 21 years with hardly a door ding in this.

Very clean! Even though I'm a Chevy guy, I can certainly appreciate a nice looking truck. I was at Discount Tire a few months ago, some lady/rancher drove up in your truck too. Really amazing condition, interior looked new, diesel. She said she loves the truck and only 30k on it. I asked is she wanted to sell and she said NO! So nice!

how much did it cost to do this, and are you expecting to have to upgrade the trans or anything else to handle it long-term?

LMAO.

The BOV are running 295$ for a set, the wastegates were 255$, both from turbosmart on EBay, and the programmer was 349$ on eBay also.

I wanted to take them off anyways to see if they had any tears in the rubber flaps and this was way better than any plastic stuff they had on from the factory.


The trans on that truck is rated for 500 hp anything over that and you might have a problem. Thatís from a person who knows these engines and transmissions extremely well. I have no other mods besides a drop in K&N filter and tighter gaped plugs.

Iíve only been driving around for a few days on this and man! she rips now. I canít believe the power she puts down now. Mind you im running premium gas with a premium gas tune. I will be going down to regular fuel soon

I broke down and upgraded the old Cummins with a new one, my 4th Cummins. I didn't have a pic of it pulling the boat yet. I'm guessing it will handle it just fine, this load is about 18,000 lbs of hay and a 7,000 lb trailer. It didn't even struggle in the least bit. These new diesels are so ridiculously impressive stock.

2018 Ram 3500 Mega Cab Laramie with the Cummins and the Aisin. I absolutely love it!

Yeah they are going to catch wind regardless of position but your chance of catching them on something and bending them is way less likely when they are rotated in. I know it's not a huge chance but its a costly one if they do get bent.
