Default Leveled 2011 Ram Sport

I have a 2011 Ram Sport 4x4 Crew Cab, I had TopGunz 2.5 Leveling kit put on front and also added .75 TopGunz rear spacers it gave the truck a great stance. Tire to wheel well in front measures 6in, and the rear is 7in. I am running Nitto Trail Mud Grapplers 35x12.50 with RockStarr wheels 20x8.5. I also have K&N Air Induction, shorty antenna, %5 tint all around and Flowmaster 40 series. Getting ready to get all the lights blacked out as well, tell what you think and if you are looking for a leveling kit you can't go wrong with the TopGunz!

Love it! Exactly what I want done to my silver sport. Got the leveling kit, not installed yet though, looking to buy 20" rockstars but undecided on width. And likely 33" tires.

What made you go with 20x8.5 over 20x10? And what is the backspacing?
Btw, more pictures please!

I went with the 8.5 so I could get the tire off the control arm. I had the same tires on stock rims but they were 33's and I had to put 1/4 spacers on to get the off the control arm, and it still was a tight fit and now i can get my hand in between it. Also I talked to a wheel guy and said it was best to go with the 8.5. I will get some more pics up later

Looks great! I was looking at doing the same thing with mine, but because I still have new tires, going to do that mod next year at tax time. This year will be all the performance stuff.

Looks nice. Very tasteful. I would be a little worried that those tires would be throwing up some rocks on the side of the truck though...especially since there are no mudflaps or step bars.
