    I present to you a 2nd gen dodge ram pickup! This is based off of the other 2nd gen mod, which you need to clear your cache if switching from the other mod, I edited quite a bit from the original mod, there's probably still some jbeam files, textures, and models that I didn't get my hands on. But I obviously wouldn't be posting this if I didn't make some major changes, which include the following:

    - Updated jbeam for (most) files, not just a meshslap anymore!
    - Updated interior with working gauges
    - Updated some of the models to make more sense
    - Added new models, such as the single cab
    - Probably more stuff I forgot about, it's been a while since I actually worked on this

    Stuff I still want to add:

    - More better jbeams
    - Long bed
    - Maybe some modified bed accessories
    - Upfit frame
    - 2500 badge
    - More functional stuff in the interior

    This mod doesn't contain a whole lot of configs, just some base-model trucks that you can customize into anything you dream of. I also highly recommend downloading the Cummins Diesel Engine Pack, because a couple configs use it.

    You can see that the JBeam is much better now

    Nice job on improving it. the model itself looks great. here's a few issues I found and some suggestions:

    the glass for the windsheild and doors are kinda weirdly dark.
    the headlights could do with some work as they look like there is a shadow in them
    perhaps make a seperate vehicle folder for this mod rather then using the d series folder?

    should have done that first honestly

    but seems like very nice work, maybe you could try to improve the jbeams of other rr cars in more of a colaboration with them

    Please remove your download link and close this thread. You did not ask permission from me (the original mod creator) to upload this. Just reach out and we can get your update included in the release on our website. I do not want this mod to be uploaded here. Thanks.

    Why upload on 2Fast and not the forums, is it not a very good mod?

    It's not a very good mod, and plus, 2fast doesn't get a good rep anywhere especially on the forums

    I think it's because they haven't always posted the most well-made mods, that's all

    Specifically, there was some issues regarding permission and all that stuff regarding some mods. They also don't really improve much on mods, like some of their mods are really just configurations for vanilla vehicles. An example for their 2nd gen ram includes the fact that their steering isn't even aligned correctly, when the steering wheel is not moving, the ram will pull to the side. And they've still made updates but haven't fixed these major issues. If 2fast really wanted to improve, they should consider quality over quantity before pushing to release mods with major issues.

    The worst issue with 2fast is that they consider getting permission for someone else's assets as some ridiculous requirement that is impossible to do, so they completely ignore it and never even try to reach the original author of the assets, and then don't provide credit and lie that they made the model... Happened at least 4 times. And yeah they never want to improve, they keep their quality low and think that it's modder friendly, as if there was some gatekeeping here on the forums, they never want to learn and improve which goes completely against the point of modding.

    Alright well guess I'll just replace the remaining models with ones I already have permission to use and do my own materials.
