Looks amazing, crazy what a set of wheels and tires can transform a stock truck into.

I'm running Toyo MT's (very similar tire) and drive on the road 90% of the time as well. They perform great in all conditions so far and are very quiet for a full mud tire. At first they were a little spongy but that wears off very quickly as the tread settles in a bit. Overall I think the truck rides nicer with the MT's than the stock tires. You can click the link in my signature for my full review on the tires if you're interested in more info.

The tires don't change anything as far as sag goes.... you'll sag with the stock tires as well. Airlift 1000's are a great way to fix that for a low cost though. Costs around $90 for the bags and they're super easy to install. Here's a short comparison I recently wrote up towing with and without the bags:

I know that the last gen Ram, Monroe makes a load leveler shock that gives an extra inch in the back, and increase payload, but they don't make them for >2010's

hey guys im at work so ill try and answer as much as i can but i believe i have 3.55 gears and I did not modify the rear suspension at all.

as for the review i haven't really had to much time but so far they are great. i kept reading about bad road noise and its not as bad as i thought and i drove to work today for about 10 miles on the highway going about 70 mph.

and i agree with brandonjansen on the spongy feeling its weird but im sure it will go away, its only does when you take off

Thanks

That small rumble you feel when you take off or come to a stop won't go away as much. That feeling is more from the wide gaps between the tread in the tire. I don't mind it though, makes me feel like I'm driving a tank

I'm new to the forum and this is my first post, but you truck looks awesome. I have the exact same model down to the color. Only difference is I have the mopar flares. I am getting ready to purchase a set of moto metal 962 wheels with a 0 offset and I was wondering if the 295/65/20 grappler would fit without rubbing? I don't have the bilsteins but I do have a 2.5 inch level. I can get everthing installed for 2600 out the door but I can't test fit this. I was going to go with the 295/60/20 grappler until I saw your truck which is basically mine. Any help is much appreciated.
