I will be joining this club in a few months when I buy my new tires! Pretty sure I'm going with 35x12.50s and possibly spacers, we'll see how they fit first

Wish me luck. I'm getting 305/55/20 BFG KOs mounted tomorrow. I'm 90% road driven here and the guys at Discount Tire tell me the Trails are good but will get louder as they wear(which I think is normal and expected honestly).

This will be my 4th set of KOs so I know what to expect somewhat. Will get up pics once I get the tires on and get my leveling Bilsteins on.

instead of all the way up which would have leveled it exactly(2.8" setting). I left a little bit of rake in it because I do tow some and not interested in raising the rear or bagging at this time. I can raise it later if I get the need to.

I'm doing a simple install thread for another forum. Let me know if there is interest and I'll post up here.

Pics with new 305/55/20 BFG KOs and front Bilsteins installed on 4th clip(note truck goes to dealership tomorrow for the brake line recall and toe adjustment/alignment). I'll post up pics and impressions on the ride afterward as well. The BFGs fit at stock height w/o rubbing(very tight on the upper A arm though, like 3/8" max clearance on stock wheels) and ride well. You can feel the extra weight though as they do weigh a good bit more than the stocker Goodyears.

Let me know if questions...

Here's a better pic, all finished up:




Still figuring out my camera... was trying to capture the sun "popping" on the Inferno Red at the hood. Looked like it was on fire lol. Anyway, kind of darkened the drivers side for exposure. Will keep trying.

hpc3, You mentioned an install thread... any chance you can still post that or sen it to me? My Bilstein's come in tomorrow and I am thinking of doing the install this weekend. Your Ram's stance is exactly what I am after. I will also go with the 2.1" setting. Thanks in advance!
