I really want to lower mine but I/Wife want to buy a camper also. Has anybody that is lowered pulled anything? If you add the air bags does that put you back to the factory tow rating?

I had air ride load leveler bags on my last lowered truck and loaded it down more than stock. Remember while it will handle the weight its not gonna be smooth like a normal ride. The bags get rock hard at higher pressure and don't allow much movement.

35 inches on the nose for the rear

I made sure that I seated all springs properly into the factory rubber...man that sounds funny! lol

Next will be a new billet antenna and exhaust. I am still torn between the Flowmaster 50 HD Catback or welding in a 14" Mufflex. Decisions decisions

Truck looks great, I really wish I would have bought a QC sport instead of my R/T. The QC looks the best IMO, The cab and bed are a perfect ration. Enjoy your truck, Your making me super jealous!

P.S Get some black rims!

Well, I guess looks can be decieving. That's almost exactly were I'm at too. Thanks for posting the measurements. I've got the Air Lift 1000 bags on the way so we will see how mine does with those.
