View Full Version : Newbie from Tulsa Area

Introduced to forum by David (BMRbrnSNRbrd). I moved here from Colorado and had a 2004 2500 Ram with a 10" lift and 37s on 22s until a lady in a suburban decided to broadside me.

I now have a slightly less modified 2011 1500 Laramie Crew 4x4 that will soon be going under the knife to receive ARH longtube headers, new exhaust, diablo tuner (fingers crossed release at SEMA), 5" pure performance lift, and an Edge torque converter.

If any of you guys are mechanically inclined and have personally installed any of the above items on a 4th gen ram and would like to help me out I'd greatly appreciate it and would be willing to pay you in beer....or I guess money if that would be preferred :shrug:

Look forward to meeting some of you out on the road or maybe at the next gtg.

Glad to see you here!

Glad you made it over! There really isn't anything on your list that I would be afraid to do. The headers wouldn't be too bad, just jack the truck up, take the wheels and inner fenders off, and knock them out. The lift would be a lot of work but nothing that couldn't be done in a garage. I'm not sure on the TC. The main thing would be getting the truck high enough to get the transmission out from under it when its dropped.

Thanks guys. I agree. Not too worried about doing it myself, but would be nice to have someone that's done it before take the lead.

Welcome to ORC! Like Dave, I wouldn't be afraid on any of that. I've learned the more you tear into things, the more you learn and know how to do alot more then the average guy

I put the lift on my old truck not to bad but the rear shock on the driver side can go f*** themselves on our 4th gens
