Looks awesome and thanks for posting the pics! That lowering kit makes a huge difference in the stance!

So how are you liking your truck and with recent mods?

I placed my order for an 11 RT with my dealer on 09 Oct and I was informed 2 weeks ago that it ships from the factory today, 29 Nov. Anyone know where the factory is?

I really like the way the truck looks and handles. I'm waiting for the Mopar hard tonneau cover to come in. I had to wait because of the new color but everything else is great. When I take the 22" off for the winter I'm getting the inserts on the spokes painted. This will set off the wheels. They look too plain they way they are.





I'm just getting the inserts of the spokes painted not around the outside of the wheel

I really like your "de-badged" look. Will be the first thing I do :-)

Great idea on painting the rim spokes!

I am thinking of a high quality 3-way folding rear cover (Extang or Bakflip?). I would love a solid cover but I found it didn't lift high enough sometimes on my 03 RAM.

Hey ramair18,
Picked up my RT today from the dealer. Got it home after 5 pm and it was too dark to take pics, will take some tomorrow and get em posted. My WS6 Formula is a 2000. My favorite is the 70 to 73 body style. I used to own a 70 firebird 350 auto some 20 years ago. You should post some pics of your birds. Wish you the best.
