Default Is there?

I have a 2013 Ram 1500 Express 2wd RCSB and i want to lower it. Not just 2/4 or even 3/5.... I want a 4/6! To totally look like the modern street drag racing truck it is! Is there anything out there like this and if not will they make it?

HELP!

You are probably going to have to cut them yourself. I plan on hacking my McGaughy's 2/4 kit. Just don't heat on them.

Is this option reliable? I only have my truck.......... No way to get another/car..... I rely on myself and only myself for stuff.

To go much lower than 4" in the rear you'll need to C notch the frame,
otherwise your frame will be riding right on the axle bumpstops
(= no suspension travel)

I cut my 4" drop bell techs and got to 5.5" rear w an inch before bump stops. I added bags in the coils for towing my boat. 25 lbs in each and it rides fine loaded....5 lbs each unloaded
