Default 2011 Sport Leveled from the Rear

Ok guys,
A lot of you out there have been wanting to level your trucks from the rear by lowering it instead of raising the front. Here are a couple of pics of my truck dropped about 2" in the rear. I was doing some landscaping around my house and installing new Decorative Stone as border for the flower beds and didn't finish unloading them from my truck bed...I had about 1,000lbs of stone left back there...Thought you guys might want to see what a rear dropped 2011 Ram looks like!

I think that's the look we are all looking for. When in High School I worked for the local power company. They would weld two 6 foot lengths of train rail in the rear of their meter reading trucks to level them out and they said to give better tire ware.

@ chrismeyers2k1, Uhhh I really didn't know my truck wasn't an R/T!!!!! Come on dude! That's what makes customizing trucks so fun, you make your own how you want it...Basically it's an expression of individuality...I got the idea from the Challenger's and Charger's while walking the parking lot where I bought my truck, I saw their emblem set up and said "that would look sweet on the Ram trucks"...If you really want to get down to the nuts & bolts, the "REAL" R/T Ram's are not much different than the Sport's (4.10 gears and a modifed torque converter)...I have 3.92 gears in mine and other than it weighing more, there's not much difference in speed...COME ON DUDE!!!! That's what makes this so fun, fixing up rides!!! Geez!
