We’ll admit it, we’re obsessed with it. Dreamt up by the masterminds at Seaside Muffler & Offroad this gorgeous 2012 RAM 3500 commands respect for the craftsmanship and is a show stopper every time it goes out. Dubbed Project “Obsessed”, Tim and Danielle Wing put their heart and soul into this build transforming this run of the mill Megacab RAM into the monster it is today within a short 2-month timeline to debut it at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Using a clean silver/purple color scheme throughout the build this truck has several styling and performance upgrades including Road Armor stealth bumpers, Royalty Core grille, Plain N Simple headlights and a plethora of tastefully installed Rigid LEDs in the bumper, headlights, and up on the windshield. The new stance comes from BDS Suspension with the purple powder coated 8” Performance Coilover Long Arm System modified up to 12” of lift for ample clearance for the 40×15.50×24 Toyo M/Ts mounted up on 24×14 American Force Thors. The suspension features Fox 2.5 remote coilovers adjusted up to 12” of lift, 4-link long arms, BDS adjustable track bar, BDS dual steering stabilizer, BDS rear leafs + blocks, BDS traction bars, and dual rear Fox 2.0 shocks. AVS flares and were added to the fenders along with Amp Research powersteps to ease cab access in this RAM. Inside the factory black leather and wood trimmed dash have Recon LEDs and touch screen navigation. Out back a Bed Rug bedliner and Lund tonneau cover, Recon/Plain N Simple taillights, Road Armor rear bumper and Rigid D2 lights were added.
Under the hood the stock 6.7L Cummins received an Airaid cold air intake, H&S mini maxx programmer and EGR delete, ARP 625+ head studs, and 5” Flo-Pro stainless steel exhaust for a dyno’d 495 hp and 1102 ft-lbs of torque out of the straight 6 coal burner. The stock 68RFE transmission received a Mag Hytec trans pan and the stock diff covers were upgraded to Mag Hytec units as well.
Obsessed is an amazing build that has already received attention from several publications. It has the cover feature in the March 2015 issue 8Lug Magazine and several other features coming up.
