This is the start of my build so there has only had minor changes as of now,


Adding an S-pod next week to be the foundation of electronics on the truck, adding a Yaesu 2M radio and CB then a couple of sets on Rigid D2's.

Will be replacing the stock tires with Toyo RT 285-70R-18 , and a level lift. will add more pics as changes come.

Feel free to add in recommendations for gear I should consider.

Thanks

Im pretty jealous of the CTD! Im working with the 14' PW 2500... 6.4L 'can you say, hemi' HEMI!
Looks like both having 4th gen 2500's we can compare notes on upgrades....

I am doing electrical upgrades first... Installing the S-pod (which was picked up today) 2m radio and CB, then 4 Rigid d2's.

Looking at a 2" level lift then add 285-75R 18 Toyo RT's.

Still on the search for the right front winch bumper.

So one step at a time, But most of my upgrades will be safety minded upgrades.

I am in Salem, OR. Don't think a PW bumper will work on CTD due to the intercooler on the Cummins.

yeah, I got to thinking about that after the fact. I take it you are versed in all of the American Expedition Vehicle goodies for Ram

Did not get a chance to install the Spod :( but did the MARS/CAP modification to my FT-7900. I am now waiting on some Brackets to mount my Rigid D2 Spot lights in the bumper, so I can install it all at once.

I guess a new rear bumper is on the mod list now due to an uninsured driver... Good times
