Default Finally got lifted, tire and wheels!! (PICS!)

Whats up everybody? everyone doing well? great!

Finally got my truck lifted. I went with the CST 6 inch lift. Then threw some 35x12.50x20 Nitto Trail Grapplers and Fuel Kranks 20x10 -12 Offset. I asked for -24 offset but the shop got it wrong. I guess my paint will thank me in the long run haha. I also got ProComp ES9000 rear shocks. The ride is amazing! I thought it would suffer from the lift but it is very near stock! Ive heard nothing but good from CST and they are the only company I could find that made lifts for the 2wd's. So I gave it a shot and couldn't be happier. However, I do retain a 1 inch rake. From what I hear that is not a bad thing, I guess when I haul around my toys it will even out. It is hardly noticeable. Other than that, the lift is fantastic! I highly recommend CST! I have 20% tint on the driver and passenger side, and 5% on the rear windows and back window. I have the 3.55 gears so I may switch to 4.56 later down the road! I am thinking about blacking out the front and back ram emblem and the "hemi 5.7" and the "ram 1500" emblem. Let me know what you think and any suggestions?! Thank you!
