According to the tape measure the front sits 34" and the back is 36". That is from the ground to the wheel well at the wheel center.

here are a couple more pics with the 24" wheels. Again it's the 2/3 drop from groundforce.

When we first got there to pick the truck up today. I looked at it and thought, "oh man that is probably a little to low". But after looking it over for a while, driving it home, to the car wash and looking it over in the driveway. I personally think it looks like how it should have come from the factory. It still has a little rake like most all factory trucks, but sits down a bit like it should.

The biggest benefit so far is, it made getting in and out of the truck much easier!! That in itself was more than worth the cost of everything! The ground force kit is exactly what we wanted out of "lowering" it!!
YUp, you think exactly how think.....

You made me sold on this kit, plus I love that new blue they have on the rams. There's one around here and man I do I like. I love my orange but blue was 2nd on my list...



To "rarichard".. How does your ride? I have 22s so I understand it might be a little stiffer with the 24s.

Thread resurrected. Bada$$ ride, bro. Your truck has become my wallpaper. I want to do my '14 black Express exactly the same.

eta: p.s. what size/brand tires are those?

Unhappy

My guess, you were talking about Rarichards truck and wheel/tire combo?

Looks Great!!!

Now that you have had it for a little while, mind giving an update on your thoughts about ride quality? Any rubbing or bottoming out??

Thanks in advance!
