Default Ram725 Lift & More Build

I had another build thread but it was more my initial question then it was a build thread. We started installing yesterday at the offroad shop I used to work at. We are just doing it after hours so it's taken a few more days. Hoping to be done tomorrow. I will continue doing more to the truck in phases, thinking Road Armor or Ironbull bumpers next.

Bought the truck in July from the dealership I am a manager at. Decided instantly I wanted to lift it. I've owned many dodges and other lifted trucks from diesels to other half tons. This however has been my favorite project.

Truck:
2012 Ram 1500 4x4 Crew Cab Bighorn
3.55 Gears
Hemi

Lift:
6" RCX
Kicker Bar
Bilstein 5100s at 2.1"
Tires:
37x13.50x20 Toyo Mt
Wheels:
20x10 Fuel Hostages Black
Misc Mods:
Bedliner
Tint
Exhaust

So far we have about 4-5 work hours in it, hoping to have it done tomorrow. We have it at a new property we bought in Old Katy Tx. Nice to have a full lift and space to work.

The bike in the back got a full camo wrap. We were testing our new $30k auto wrap machine.

Haha ya I decided on 2.1". My buddy at RCX said he personally didn't like the idea of them at 2.8". And I'm happy at 2.1". Going to start on the truck around noon tomorrow. Hoping to have it done by the evening. Just need to finish the front and I don't think the back will take long at all.

many people run them at 2.1 and it looks real good, 2.8 has some good and bad reviews, my adjustables are at 2.8 and ive never had any issues however my drop plate is a little bigger than the rcx drop plate, but with and rcx kits i too would recommend 2.1 looks good so far cant wait to see it all done.
