Photo 3/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 005 FTS Lift | The Full Throttle Suspension 10-inch lift complete with springs, shocks, and radius arms was installed by Ridin' High Motorsports in Yuba City, California, which performed most of the work on the truck.
Photo 4/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 008 Tires | The extra-wide 22x14 wheels are American Force Hero hoops, while the truck rides on 355x45R22 Nitto Trail Grappler tires.
Photo 5/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 007 Rear Spacers | The rear suspension lift consists of powdercoated Candy Blue suspension blocks for the coil springs and chromed shocks from FTS.
Photo 6/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 002 Engine | The factory 370hp Cummins now puts out more than 500 hp at the rear wheels thanks to custom tuning by Hardway Performance. Torque comes in at more than 1,200 lb-ft thanks to the engine's large 6.7L displacement.
Photo 7/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 003 Air Intake | A few choice modifications were made to help get the most out of the custom tuning. An air intake from AFE was added to make the most out of the factory turbocharger.
Photo 8/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 011 Acceleration | With tuning from Hardway Performance, Parm's Ram cranks out a good 200 rear-wheel horsepower more than stock, which gets the truck moving in quite a hurry!
Photo 9/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 004 Exhaust Tip | In addition to the intake and tuning, a 4-inch exhaust from Flo-Pro made the cut. The exhaust runs under and out on the passenger side, exiting a 5-inch tip.
Photo 10/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 009 Rearend | It's hard to miss the extensive powdercoating and chrome that graces the undercarriage of Parm's Ram. Everything from the rear axle tubes and the lift kit to the rear hitch received the Candy Blue treatment. Offsetting the blue are the differential cover, sway bar, brakes, and driveshaft, which are either polished or chromed by West Coast Chrome in Modesto, California.
Photo 11/15 | 2013 Ram 2500 Silver Streak 010 Lights | At the corners of the Ram are turn signal lights from Switchback, which not only provide a turn signal and running light function but can provide various colors and hues as well.
