Default New wheels / tires / leveling

So I stepped it up over the holidays. Decided to level and put some new wheels and tires on. Looks awesome, and love the truck so far. I picked the truck up about two months ago. It is a 2010 Ram 1500 ST 4.7 with 50,000 miles on it. I know everyone would rather have a hemi, but it is just a daily driver, as long as it gets me around town, it works for me.

18X9 XD misfits 0 offset
297/70/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers
2 inch FBG leveling kit
Bilstein Shocks for a ram 2500 (2 inches longer)

The leveling kit had me back and forth forever. I could not decide if I should go with 2.5 or 2 or even 1.5. So many mixed stories on results if it leveled the truck or not. Well I did it my way and I am sure many have done this before. I set a level on the rail of the bed, jacked the front up until the level said it was level and it was exactly 2 inch higher, so thats what I got. In the end with the 2 inch level and the new shocks, it actually sits about 1/2 higher in the front. I am thinking of adding 1 inch to the rear. It took about two days for the front to settle as it was about two inches higher the first day and the following day was around an inch higher.

Future mod list:
- Window tint - this week
- 1/4 inch wheel spacer - I like how far it sticks out, but for some reason if it would come out just a touch more I think it would be perfect. Anyone running the 1/4 inch on aftermarket wheels to get just a little bit more out of your offset?
- 1 inch rear spacer
- Color match all chrome to match truck
- Magnaflow muffler
- Magnaflow Y pipe
- DIY CAI
- Superchips

So thats it, hope you like and some of this info helps anyones future decisions.

I think it looks perfect! I think some will suggest to stay away from spacers if you don't absolutely need them. If you do get them, get the more expensive but better quality ones. I hear a malfunction with a cheap wheel spacer can be a huge mess. In my opinion it looks perfect the way it is. good lookin truck

Think it looks great as is. I tried the spacers and personally didn't like them when I was on the highway. Just seem to feel a little off. I still have the spacers if you wanna try the I will let you have mine for $25 for all 4 with shipping. PM me of you do they were only on my truck for 40 miles. There sitting in my ram box.

Default OP How is the ride?

Is your ride bouncy with the 2500 shocks? Is your truck a 2wd or 4wd.

I have a 2wd and I just got 20x9 misfits with a 2.5 lift.

I have tried 3 different shocks with no luck! Stocks rode horrible. Procomp 9000 rode better but rubbed on the springs because of te spacers. Had to switch to a thinner pro comp but was 1/2 inch shorter than the 9000's so back to the bouncy ride... I like the look but miss the smooth ride. Next step is to ditch the spacers!

I ran the pro comp 9000's 0-3" shocks on my 1.5 daystar level and those were some good shocks for the money. Sorry to hear you had rubbing. Plain 9000's out back.
