:mrgreen: 2017 Ram 2500 Tradesman with the Power Wagon Package

I picked this up a little over 2 weeks ago. Over 2 years ago, I traded my 2006 Power Wagon in after it began to have electrical problems; becoming dangerous and unpredictable when driving. I traded it for a 2015 Ram 2500 Tradesman. It was a good truck, but it was no Power Wagon! But now I have this baby and she's my pride and joy.

First 2 mods I had planned we're exhaust and the intake. I had a K&N CAI for the 6.4 Hemi that I took of my 2015 before I traded it in.

The set of photos shows the K&N box install and the Flowmaster.

When I took the stock muffler off and ran the truck and it was super loud and throaty. I then put the Flowmaster on without the resonator and it was a little bit quieter but still nice, throaty, and had a deep rumble. I buttoned everything up with the resonator and it was loud but much, much quieter. It's still throaty, but its a lot quieter than I would like.

For one of my next mods, I'm gonna chop the resonator off and add a powder coated Rolling Big Power exhaust tip.

More mods to come!
The picture shows the stock airbox.
This photo shows the K&N box installed with the filter.
:D A ported throttle body is in my future!
All buttoned up :D
I wanted to try Flowmaster this time
