Default Finally Done! Well almost need to add some fender flares i think!

What do you think? 2011 Ram sport with 3" levelling in the front (actually worked out to be about 2.6" and 1.5" in the rear. It maintained the factor rake since i tow a large boat quite often. Added 20X10" XD Rockstar rims with Toyo Open country M/t 35"X12.5". There was a small amount of rubbing on the driver side front wheel well. Thanks to a dremmel tool and some rubberizing paint all clear now. There was also an electrical harness behind the plastic fender that i cut so i used spray on lithium grease to maintain the waterproof integrity of the harness. Absolutely zero shake in 4X4.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
Cheers!

Looks great! I'm not surprised you got some rub with the 12.5's but what offset wheel did you go with?

That does look good and I like that you left a bit of the factory rake in it, nice job!

Thanks for the good words guys! I love the look too.
Casper-I used a HeavyMetal levelling kit (see link)

Super easy to install...about 4 hours total and i've never done one before.
Cajun-The offset on the wheels is -24.
