Leveling kit was the single best thing I've done to my truck for sure. Second was a taller tire, I can't get over how much better this gen looks sitting up higher.

It's a world of difference getting rid of the factory rake. I ordered mine from hellbentsteel.com free shipping received in 2 days.

Do you have any vibration/shudder in 4x4?

Would you have more picture of your truck, but from the side and picture of your cv angle?

I haven't noticed any problems, vibrations, or shutters. Still have a great ride. The only difference is a loss in mpg from the tires. I can try and get a couple more pictures uploaded in the next day or so.

That would be appreciated.


Good to know. I may go with a 2.5'' leveling kit. But i don't want to change my tires just yet. I only have 900km on the stock one haha.

The CV angles don't look bad. I don't have an original picture for comparison. I'll try to get a pic of the CVs later today.

Here is a picture of my CV angles with 2.5" HBS kit and stock tires. I don't have a stock picture to compare it to.... I should have thought of that before I put it in.

Thank you for the picture.That's CV angle look better then the CV angle on my old 2005 F150 FX4.


But, i have an Outdoorsman and they come with a .7'' lift compared to other 4x4 Ram. That's why i asked aletcamp for picture of his CV angle.

Because an TRX4 or Outdoorsman with a 2.5'' leveling kit is actually looking at 3.2'' of lift compared to other 4x4 Ram.That's alot of lift without dropping the diff, power steering... But i know people did it with F150 and didn't have to much problem with them.
