Have the steps powder coated black or bed linered.
Just an idea.

Here is mine:

96 2500 with the V10 and auto. I get about 10 mpg, however I have come to find the E still has a lot of fuel in the tank. it is a 34 gallon tank. Hoping to get a plow for it over the summer. Has the rails in the bed for a 5th wheel/gooseneck. Dana 70 rear 60 front. Has all the normal Dodge rust.

Nice Nick. I'd suggest a load leveling equalizer hitch.

Any improvements yet or is it bare inside?

ive been eyeing craigslist for a antisway hitch and weight distribution. the picture makes it look like its sagging alot but its not. the middle of the truck passenger side is in a big hole and the truck sags a bit arleady from the standerd SUV aftermarket lift kit sagidy itis.

totally bare besides a light switch and one dome light. but thats how i wanted it. that way i can outfit it the way i want to. ive decided against putting a bunk bed up in the front. going to build a nice shelf to put TV stereo, camping gear etc. a nice work bench underneath with tool box for spares. then on the wall im going to put some fold down beds and have either a drop down table with some chairs or a fold up table i can tie down.

took all my measurements and i should be able to fit the cruiser and beckys future rzr whenever we have the money for it and still have 6ft to spare for my additions. basically i will have the side door opening forward to put in stuff.

jim beat me to it, but I was gonna say you need some rear springs/airbags/airbumps/adaleaves/helpersprings/tennis balls shoved in the coils/bumpstops/equalizer hitch/OR prerunner fenders and then it wouldn't even matter.
