Default my mods - before and after pics

2011 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman Crew Cab (4WD)

Local 4WD shop just installed 2.5" strut spacers (ProComp) and 2.5" rear coil spacers (TGC) plus new rear shocks (Bilstein). Not a dramatic lift but nice to have a little more ground clearance and she'll still be level when loaded down or pulling a trailer. Also changed from 275/70R17 Good Year Wrangler to 285/70R17 BF Goodrich AT / KO.

I put those horizontal lines in the pic just to see how much difference the lift provided - I didn't take good measurements but I think it's right around 2" in front and a little more than 2" in the rear.

<Removed Outdoorsman sticker, installed Westin oval step rails, molded splash guards & Leer cap.>

Cheers!
Wolfpack

2" looks good, not high enough to be "jacked up" but looks a little better than factory.

Nice truck, looks good.

Looks really nice. I was pleased when I levelled mine too.

Hey Wolfpack, I got the same tires, same size. I have the 10ply cause I had just put them new on my 2500 about a month before I traded for my 1500 and decided to keep them and put them on this truck. Well after having them mounted on my new wheels the shop put 70 psi in them. When they were on my diesel I only ran them between 55-60, and it is a much heavier truck. I questioned this, told them that was a little high and I've never run them that high on the other truck. What pressure do you run in yours and do you have the D or E rated? I was thinking 50 psi would be more then enough but just not sure. I am just wanting to get a good wear on them and dont want the centers to wear out because they have to much air in them.
