He did coils in the front and leafs in the back. I am pretty sure he used the Belltech 4 inch leafs but it actually lowered it a little over 5 inches. I am pretty sure also that he used 3 inch Belltech coils too.

Well I hope I can get a free pass.

I've been building my own step-side and had the stripes and decals made in lavender. The doors decals say Ram 1500 R/T.

Since Dodge didn't make a step side, or an R/T like it. I made it out of completely recycled parts=R/T(Recycled Truck). I'm seriously considering a full size roll bar (double-double) Center mounted spare on the roll bar, and a bull bar.

Here are some pics that I hope will get me the free pass. There are some subtle changes that include Durango mirrors etc in an attempt to give it a sportier look.













I know it's not factory, but I was hoping for an honorable mention for effort. I originally intended to fab a 2nd Gen Warlock III. But things changed into more of a Baja style look.

The lowered look really sets off the truck. You did springs in the front and shackles in the rear, right? Where did you get the parts? Summit?
Thanks! I have Belltech 3" coils and 4" lowering leafs. Actual drop was 2.75" front and 5.25" rear. I used Belltech Nitro Drop 2 shocks all around. When I bought my parts, Stillen.com had the best prices.

Thanks for the info!! Their prices don't look too bad, only 176 for the springs and 129 for the leafs. Question though, I just replaced my shocks 3 weeks or so ago (monroe brand), do I need the Nitro Drop 2 shocks? Im kinda new to the whole dropping a truck thing.

I've always heard you need drop shocks. I know of a few trucks that ride terrible and I attribute it to the wrong shock length.

Looks like I'm going to be putting on the nitro drop 2's then. I should be a pro soon at installing shocks. Last ones were a real pain getting off. Don't think I could have gotten them off without the torch. These should be easy since they have only been on a couple of weeks.
