Are your grille lights held onto the grille with only epoxy? the epoxy is between the aluminum and the grille?

Nice truck. All your mods are well done. Can you share a list of the "no holes" mounts that you used for the ipad?

Thanks much...I'll get back to you with close ups...they're all Ram Mount parts but I'm not sure of part numbers.

From passenger side...left side of mount is Ram diamond ball base adhesive 3M to console and small caps to fill the hole...medium clamp to reach the vertical bar for extra support...Ram bike bar ball attached to 9" vertical shaft with NTP ball mount on each end...the lower half is mounted to Ram round plate adhesive to side of trim on drive tunnel:

Picture of the 9" riser upper end with twin ball NTP...short clamp attached to Ram tablet holder:

Another view from passenger side of the bike U-clamp attached to riser shaft...at the bottom is attached to universal round base with ball that's attached with 3M tape:

Overall view from the back side:

Command central:

The left side of steering is mounted with Ram diamond base ball, short clamp and cell phone mount...this one couldn't hold on with just 3M tape so had to be drilled and screwed:

Msfitoy,


Thanks. Looks like a future project for me. Ram is top quality. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Edit: I have to admit the screws in the dash hurt me. :)

Hey Sid, don’t mind telling you that I am blatantly copying your wheel and tire choice. Looks so great! Question: my local tire vendor is trying to dissuade me from going with the Falkens. Too noisy, sez he. What say you?

Have you heard any update regarding the Eibachs?

Hi Robert...not really noisy at all, at least in the AT version that I have. I really like them so far for their on road behavior and grip. We'll see about off road later after the Eibach gets here. Chris (Panda) tells me that they should be going out end of May. Can't wait to get her leveled out.

Thanks, Sid. Do you mind sharing the specs on those “Shoks”? Size and offset? Thanks.
