    Very Nice rig, and so clean too!  i wish mine was that clean when I bought it inside.  The guy who sold it to me put in one of those generic carpet kits, only he glued it down with some frickin' superglue or such.  He even glued over the drivers foot vent!  Anywho, I spent a week ripping out the carpet, and another grinding all the glue and residue out.  I took it up to Line-X and had the whole interior sprayed down for easy cleaning.  Sharp Rig Mike.

    What type of lift do you have?  I'm assuming it's a 3" Body lift?  What brand?  Also, what's the backspacing on your wheels, and do you have ANY problems rubbing?  Sorry for the questions, but that's the EXACT look I want for my RC when I get one.

    The lift is a 2.5" rancho with 4" blocks in the back. No body lift. Not sure of the backspacing but they only rub when turning and articulating hard together.

    I thought that your truck was a ramcharger at first until I saw the shell. I think your grill is in better shape than mine.

    I thought, why not have people calll me by my first name?

    Looking at someone elses Mopars at a car show it like having a hot female friend, you might appreciate and know quite a bit about them, but at the end of the day you're not the one that's putting them through their paces.
