Nice looks good and clean!

After looking at the pictures I was definitely gonna say it could use a drop but then I saw your comment at the bottom of the post. I vote for a 4/6 rather than a 2/4. If you're gonna lower it do it right!

Thanks! I've checked out 2/4 vs 4/6 drops and I just prefer the stance of the 2/4. I'm more of a sport truck guy not a lowrider.

Talking with a service writer at the dealer while getting my free oil change about a 2/4 drop. He said it would void the warranty. Anyone have experience with this? Discount Auto has a good price on a Belltech kit.

It will void the warranty on any components that are replaced or any parts that fail prematurely due to the drop. It will not void the warranty on anything else on the truck.

i was told at my dealer where i bought the truck that as long as its made by a reputable company there is no issue! mine is also modified(cut)to make it just over 3" drop in front and just under 5" in the rear. they should drop the RTs from the factory, its a sport truck but sits like a 4x4!lol

looks good -- I'd remove the HEMI emblem also -- you know what it has , so o need to advertise - with the rumble they can figure it out
