It's no surprise that we at OK4WD are big AEV fans and with the release of the 2013 AEV SEMA RAM, Jim was hooked!

A few months later in early 2014 he pulled the trigger and ordered up a RAM 3500 Crew Cab, Long Bed fitted with the 6.7l Cummins and AISIN transmission.

This truck will be our personal tow rig for the shop and also Jim's daily driver. With that in mind we want a well balanced build that can tow our enclosed trailer and still have fun with off-road.

Plans for the near future:

AEV Front Bumper System w/ Warn 16.5 Winch
AEV 3" Dual sport Suspension System
AEV Katla Wheels
AEV Raised Air Intake System
Mopar Black Projector Headlights
Mopar Black Front Grill
BFGoodrich 37x12.50x17 All Terrain KO2 Tires

Stay posted as we install and review these new parts and we will be sure to have plenty of pictures!

We also will be stocking all the new AEV Ram parts and like the JK parts we will be offering free shipping on orders over $70!

Some shots of the truck as it sits now,

The first AEV upgrade to our RAM is the Raised Air Intake System. Some of the highlights and benefits of this system are;

•Fits 2013+ Ram HD Diesel w/ Active Air Intake (Gas applications coming soon)
•Huge 5” inlet for maximum air flow
•Raises air intake for a cleaner, colder air charge
•UV-stable cross-linked polyethylene construction
•Optional High Efficiency Dust Filtration System filters out 98% of debris
•Made in the USA

With the intake unboxed and the template in place it was time to start drilling!





Having installed snorkels on numerous vehicles from almost every manufacture under the sun, the attention to detail in this template is outstanding and inspires confidence in cutting up this fender. :)

And Installed! We will eventually switch to the pre-filter assembly once it is available.
