Default Ground Force 9863 impression

So I've had my Ground Force kit installed for a little while now, and I must say its quiet an impressive kit. Installation was only 4.5 hours, now I had the Ground Force 91214 kit so all I had to do in the rear was replace springs and bumpstops. I ran into a little trouble in the front getting the coils out once everything was unhooked but a pry bar helps get the bottom to the point you can pull it out.
I'll have to measure tomorrow to see what the springs have settled at height wise compared to stock. Ride quality didn't suffer, actually think the truck rides smoother than stock, and with the 2" level. Turns are definitely handled with even less sway than before. I am able to enter and exit the truck much easier now, I'm able to just drop into my seat. Assessing the bed is much easier, and loading the bed is less of a task. The stance is amazing, and I've gotten complements on the look of the truck since the drop kit. With the slight rake this kit gives I was able to hook up my trailer with the weight of my Integra and sit level by eye.
I've gotta say initial impressions with this kit and my experience with Ground Force as a company are outstanding. Even though this kit is a little more expensive than some other brands/kits at $650, I'd say its well worth it.
You can see from the photo with the 2/3 drop the Ram is about level with a 2014 Cherokee, so clearing things like curbs, speed bumps, possums, etcetera is still no problem.

Would you mind taking a side shot of your truck? I'm curious to see how the ground force kit sits on factory 20's. I like a little bit of rake myself. Thanks.

I don't have factory 20s, but there's a good set of photos on google of a black CC with the GF 2/3 drop and stock 20s. He's on several of the Forums, can't remember his name.
