Is there a way to raise the rear 1 to 2" with springs or shocks? I just want a tiny rake and 35's. The bilsteins on the front are great!

I know this is off topic. But what have you done to your front end?! It looks sooo good. What type of headlights are those? Do you obtain that look from getting aftermarket headlights with a black housing? Also, above your grille, what is that black thing? Im interested to hear, as i have a red ram with black wheels, tinted windows, plasti-dipped lettering and emblems.

Top Gun Customz Makes a 2 inch spring (I just installed a set when I did my BDS 4 inch lift instead of the spacer)

Icon Makes a 1.5 inch spring too


So far my Top Gun Spacer (.75) have been quite.

I got the headlights on ebay with smoked lenses. Link below. On the hood is an AVS hoodskin also smoked. The hood spears are from rocky mountain graphics in graphite grey.

newfiebullet did his own retro on his own headlights.
he can list the parts he used, but from what I recall, he used the mini projectors and galin shrouds. he then blacked out his lights with paint

On the spacer noise issue...

When I installed my TCG spacers recently, they looked like they had a couple of places they were going to want to make noises.

So, I put a few wraps of duct tape around the cylinder section that fits in the frame. Enough tape to make it a snug and cushioned fit in the frame hole. Should eliminate any noise from the spacer moving side to side and hitting the frame - because it is tight enough it can't really move anymore, but even if it does, it's not metal on metal anymore.

Then I also lubed the flat part where it rides against the raised lip of the frame, just in case.

Have not had them on for very long yet, so time will tell, but so far no noise from them at all. Riding 70 miles of bad dirt road the other day, I rolled down all the windows just to listen for any noises and they weren't making a peep.

Note, I also ended up trimming the cylinder portion of the spacers that goes through the factory isolator, because I was also installing AirlLift 1K air bags and didn't like the way the air bag protectors were interfacing with the spacer. Trimmed the spacers so that the air bag protector can seat fully into the factory isolator like it is supposed to, before it bottoms against the spacer.

Like I said, have not had it on for very long, so we'll see how it holds up long term, but so far, so good.

- DAA

Mine only started making noise after winter (so 8 months) and this is still an assumption till I remove them and run without them or do as DAA did and throw something around to break up the metal on metal

But mine is not a creaking....its a hollow knock.
I had my dealer check all my components and bolts and all were good, but they did not check the spacer

Problem fixed. Most may not want to do this but I have no intention of changing the setup on my truck. Took out rear fender wells to get to the top of the spacer. Placed a few tack welds and took it down a bumpy road and solid like new. If by chance I want to change down the road I set it up so I could just grind off the tack welds. Works awesome!

Not sure it's something I'd do, but it's a Damn great idea
I'll probably do what DAA did

morimoto mini h1's , mini gatlin gun grounds, satin black paint and a few red leds....thats about it, and well a h1 hid kit.

i only drive about 10-12 kms a day so the spacer thing dosent worry me, usually only head it pulling out of the driveway when i drop off the corner of the sidewalk.
