Monsoon Chopper will become famous soon enough
Default Finally - New Shoes and Lowered - KMC Slides, MCG and Bilstein

I finally got my new shoes and lowering kit installed. Here's a few pics of before and after. I'll be doing a photo shoot, so this is all I have for now.

My 2012 1500 CC Sport 4x2 -


After putting on my 24x9.5 (+25) KMC Slides (yes I went with chrome!) with 295/40/24 -


After Installing McGaughys 2/4 drop kit with spindles and Bilstein 5100 shocks -




So I had this done a couple weeks ago and have put 1k miles on it. I am absolutely amazed on how well this truck drives and rides now. It rode real smooth on the original shocks and 20" wheels/tires before, but since then, it's day and night difference. Everyone that rides in, comments on how nice the ride it.

Since I've bought my truck 2 months ago I've competed the following - Lund Tonneau Cover, Bed Rug (a must!), Magnaflow 18" (which is perfect!), KMC 24" Chrome Slides, 295/40/24 Falkens (awesome tire!), McGaughy's 2/4 Spindle Drop, Bilstein 5100 shocks.

I have some future plans as well, but just wanted to share what she looks like now. And I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on moving forward with wheels and lowering. I wanted the right stance, no wheels sticking out, no rubbing or bottoming out. I wanted a ride that was better than stock and looked much better. And I got exactly what I wanted now. It's perfect. I absolutely love the way it rides!

Awesome looking truck.... I also went with 24" wheels and love the ride quality. But went with the 285/40/24 Toyo Tire. I will also be putting in the McGaughys spindle and spring set. I have the Belltech kit but will be selling it soon.

BTW... what model Bilsten 5100 shock did you get I only see them for a 4X4

Looks good man! Was leaning toward the black slides for mine, but it seems like everyone is doing black wheels with the white truck now. Chrome looks real sharp!
