Default Mcgaughy's 2/4 on the way.. Finally modding the Dodge!

Well, It's not new anymore!.. Bought my 2009 new and never did much to it other than a complete audio system, mufflex and a tuner. Now that the new has worn off, the tires had worn out, and I saw too many nice looking lowered Ram's, it was time for me to play.. Last week I started off with a brand new set of Menzari Z09 chrome 22's and new Cooper rubber... Now I have the Mcgaughy's eco 2/4 kit and a Street Scene lower grille insert on the way. I'll post some pics up as I go!

Well, things didn't go as planned today. I started the install this morning, but stopped when I found out that the kit didn't have instructions, and that I would have to completely remove the bump stops from the front. I think the kit is missing some part, but without the instructions I can't even tell.. Long story short, I'm sending the Mcgaughy's kit back, and ordered a Ground Force. In the mean time, here are some before pics...
