Default Recent and Future Mods

I just recently did a ground force 2 inch rear drop. It cost me $260, and the install took an hour and a half. It could have been done in an hour if I had a proper jack to do it with Pics below!

Before the drop


The new shocks and pretty blue springs


After the drop



My truck rides nearly the same, it is 100% level (which is sorta freaky sometimes when it almost looks lower in the back), overall, I'm pleased with the kit, I'd recommend it to anyone.

Now on to my next mod...I'm desperate for headers. And a programmer. I was gonna get shorty headers cause the ARH are way too expensive...but my dad is convinced I ought to get the ARH so that's what I'm gonna do. After all, who could argue against getting more power? To my understanding, it is best to wait for headers until I have a tune, correct? So in the meantime I'm hoping to plan a dual exhaust. Right now I have a magnaflow y pipe welded onto a magnaflow 18". Its the perfect noise level for me. I would like to keep this level of noise, but with headers and a true dual exhaust. So, any suggests on X pipe placement, mufflers, etc. would be much appreciated. Here's my current setup.



Also I'd like to change those crappy OEM tips with some $27 bolt on dual walled tips from Autozone, or some $130 Magnaflow weld on dual walled tips. Is Magnaflow worth the extra money?

Very nice looking truck, the drop really did it some justice, it does look completely level, nice job!

Yep, they're stock on the Ram R/Ts. And they only come in 22".

Stock the truck was 35 3/4" in the front, and 38 1/4" in the back. Measured from the ground to the fender lip. Now its 35 7/8" in the front and 36 1/8" in the back.
