2012 Crew Cab 4/5 Drop
 
Finally finished up the drop yesterday.

It turned out to be a 4front/ 5.5inch rear drop actually.. settled a bit in the rear.

I like the "rake" look. Truck needs to look like a hot rod :smiley_thumbs_up:

Powdercoated the factory wheels gloss black and mounted
up a new set of Nitto 420S 285/50's

Front consists of Spindles and stock shocks and springs... cut of course

Wrapping it up

Even with McGaughy's track bar re-locator one of of the Spohn adjustable
bars is a necessity. Truck still needed a bit of a shift and the bar dialed it in
nicely. Will be getting their full set of rear control arms next week.

Finished product

With the new setup and tires front = 31 3/4in from ground to fender and rear 33 3/4in

Appreciate it much man !!!!

Gotta hand it to you bud... What I have seen of your 2012 Black RT was my inspiration :smiley_thumbs_up:
And now your 2013 is just killer looking.

Thanks for replying to the PM's as well :beerchug:

And I hear ya on spending more money.. haha

FWIW, I didnt have to adjust very much.. it was negligible at best regarding the rear end shift

Great looking truck! It totally has the "hot rod" look. I'm digging the black and gray theme too. You should throw some smoked vinyl tint on those fogs and tint the tails somehow. That would complete the look. Reps for a beautiful truck!

man oh man that front is low. Looks really good though, our rams looks awesome lifted and just as awesome lowered. Can be a tough decision to decide which route to take lol.

Ridiculously clean underbody and wheel well.

Oh, and the truck looks sharp too.

Looks great. Did you cut the 2-4 kit springs or the stock ones? How much off of each 1. Between yours and the slammed 13 R/T gotta join the club.Any
Plans to tow anything substantial?
