Vprgts Build 08/11

Purchased 2011 DC LB 07/11. Installed Viper Auto Start/Alarm, Sirius radio, Volant air box, Auto vent shades, Smitty built N-fab bars and Husky floor liner.

Now for the real fun stuff. After months of contiplating which suspension, wheels and tires I was going to run with, I placed the order: Fabtech Basic 6" w/ performance shocks, Nitto Terra Grapplers 325/65/18 and XD Black Revolvers 18x9. I had High Tech 4x4 in Chantilly, VA do the install and I'm extremely happy with their quality/professionalism of work!! So glad I had them do the install. Just picked her up yesterday and I swear it runs smoother then my stock set up. Runs smooth, straight, no vibrations and I can live with the stock gears. Anyways here is the final product. Next week I'm having my Flowmaster super 44 muffler installed and eventually I will get the windows tinted. Hope you all like!

Check my tread later bc I will be posting some of my new stock stuff (only 640 miles on it) up for sale.

Thanks guys! Unfortunately it does not fit in the garage =( . The flowmaster I scored from ebay for $62 shipped. I'm hoping to get it installed at some point this week.

Damn that's a nice truck. I like those long beds with 6" lifts. Can you post a sound clip of your exhaust after it's installed?

Yeah just the muffler was installed. Albeit the fm will only probably last about 3-4 years...it's totally worth it! I didn't install it because I'm a tard when it comes to all that stuff plus my buddy runs a shop and he hooked it.
