I really appreciate this thread. I've been slowly testing out my truck off road (still stock), but I live in Jax FL so it's pretty much flat around here. So far the only damage is losing the bump stop under the right rear suspension. The warranty should cover that though! I won't replace my stock suspension until it dies. Then I plan to lift it. Keep us updated on future excursions!

Thank you guys so much for the compliments. I am really enjoying this truck. I've put about 5k on it and still have yet to make my second payment. haha My motorcycle has been getting neglected to say the least.

I was also so impressed with the articulation of the stock suspension on this truck. The best part was that when the wheel came off the ground, I opened the door and watched, and you could see it slowly stop spinning and feel the power starting to push me out of the creek from the back right wheel.

I am so impressed with this truck.

Now I have to go look and make sure my bump stops are there lol!! Dang OCD!!

I will def keep you guys updated and hope to have more great pics and videos to share.

I did not remove the sway bar. This was all completely stock as far as I know. I bought the truck used so I am still curious if the previous owner did anything to the suspension, as it sets a little different than most 4x4's I see running around town.

See now this makes me want to go offroading. With my luck I will tuck one of my tires and damage something. Or the driveshaft will fall off again. I have AAA so I may go try this anyway. So your in Fort Worth I need to know where this spot is for a side stop after the Ram meet thing up there to test my Ram.
