I do a lot of towing so the 50% are perfect for what I need. The ride is a little stiffer then stock, but I have had them on the truck for some time now and kind of forgot what stock ride is like

Okay an initial review of the TufTruck springs is that they are good to go! I have ridden around with them for a day or two now and haven't noticed a change in the ride. The rear of the truck is sitting up just a bit higher now.

For the cost VS an Airbag system these are the way to go if you don't do any crazy heavy towing. I have yet to actually test mine but I am sure I will be satisfied with the results when I do.

I didn't have a real good before picture so this one will have to do. In this picture you can see the the distance from the tire to the top of the wheel well isn't much. This is right after I got my cover.



This is after I installed the springs. Again not the best picture but you can see the difference.

Finally as a small mod I got the old Hemi badge off and put on the new 2013 Hemi badge. I haven't done the other side yet because my hands hurt! After close to four years on being on there they sure didn't wanna come off!

Here is a shot of the new and the old. In this picture you can see some of the outline of the old Hemi badge. This picture was before the claybar/wax...there is no longer an outline.




I am also going to be adding the "1500" underneath the Ram emblem so that my truck begins to match the 2013 Ram's. That project will be saved for another day however.

Haha I can imagine. correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I noticed the grill had a different shape at the bottom edges as well? that would mean the top bumper trim would be different.

Nice, looks real good, not sure the push button start thing will work, the last time I looked into that you had to get a bunch of sensors setup around the inside of the truck, cause the one in the key unit on the dash is not strong enough, then I looked into another company that makes an after market kit to do that and it was like around 600$ for it. Hope you find something interesting and inexpensive to do it, I want that also, let me know if you find anything.

I'm sure they'd fit no problem.
