Made a "skid plate"/air dam out of aluminum diamond plate and painted it with bed liner. Before someone says something.. I'm doing a little MPG experiment... Plus looks good till I can get back to the states to order a real one. (they won't ship to me with out extra $$$)

Put some lights on my front guard and the back of the rack, made a switch panel, and put the "mopar" emblem on my liftgate hatch but of course it dosnt look as good as omelets I need to get the letters off a ram to use, I think that makes a big difference! Ill post some pictures later when I am off work.

I hate getting off every day and only having 10 minuets of sunlight, Ill try and get a better picture tomorrow with a better camera.

I bought the lights I have on the back with intentions to put them on the front guard but when I held one up on the back I liked how they looked so I ended up just leaving them. I already drilled holes for them on the guard so I went digging in some boxes of car junk and found a set of slim lights I used as back up lights under my truck. I mounted them on the front and they ended up not looking to bad so I think ill wire them up and keep them.

What tail light guards do you have on the back there? I'm going to do some searching, but do you have any info on your homemade front guard?

As for me today, I took off the air dam in the front. So far it's the only exterior modification but it really changes the front end from looking like a minivan to having an actual approach angle. I'm excited that it's just one less thing that'll restrict me while playing in the snow!

Learned that the traction control sounds like death. (First 1" of snowfall came way late this year.) I've read all over to long-press the ESP button to turn it off but mine doesn't chime or display anything. It's either on or on the single push setting. Just pushing it once does eliminate the sound unless I really try to get them spinning.

I wanna say if its pre 2006 you cant completely turn it off, I think 2006 was the first year that you could turn it completely off.
