You should think about a lowering kit because the R/T's sit too high. I put on McGaughy's 2" & 4" springs and love the new stance of the truck.
Great advice and thanks man! I haven't been able to find one in Toronto to try out, but from pictures your right it does look a little high (and guess the 22's add a bit more) and could use a lowering kit.
I didn't order the side steps because I think it looks better without the chrome bars (and also want to de-badge the "RAM1500" door stuff like you have done) ........ but my wife has trouble getting in my 03 RAM now, so she wants me to get the dealer to add the steps when it comes in.
What do you guys think about the chrome step rails on the R/T? I guess I could get them powder coated in black, but maybe lowering the truck with the McGaughy's kit would do it.
