Re­nais­sance Ram

Street Trucks - - TECH -

THIS SWEET ’13 RAM 1500 ST BE­LONGS TO CHRIS GRIF­FIN FROM SOUTH CAROLINA. The truck has been his daily driver since he bought it new in 2013, and he’s been adding parts ever since. On the per­for­mance side, the 3.6L V-6 en­gine has been out­fit­ted with a new K&N cold air in­take to let the en­gine breathe bet­ter. At the other end of the line, a cus­tom cat-back dual ex­haust with black tips keeps the Ram look­ing sharp and sound­ing even bet­ter.

For crea­ture com­forts, Chris has added a Ken­wood head unit with a Rock­ford Fos­gate amp—push­ing six speak­ers and a Kicker amp, with two 10-inch sub­woofers be­hind the seat—giv­ing him qual­ity sound for ev­ery oc­ca­sion. Mean­while, an af­ter­mar­ket leather in­te­rior pack­age has him sit­ting pretty while giv­ing the in­te­rior smooth style. Multi-color un­der-body LEDS set the truck apart, and painted em­blems and brake calipers joined with Spy­der Halo head­lights, LED tail­lights and PIAA driv­ing lights with HID bulbs fit the 1500’s theme. To com­plete the build, a set of 22-inch cus­tom wheels wrapped in 305/40R22 rub­bers was in­stalled, and the en­tire truck was low­ered with a Bell­tech kit, which in­cluded rac­ing shocks to drop it 2 inches in the front and 4 in the rear.

In the end, this clean build shows that the best daily driv­ers speak for them­selves, with black and matte ac­cents that come to­gether for a co­he­sive ap­pear­ance. With Chris’ list of new ideas al­ways grow­ing, we can’t wait to see where this Ram goes next.
