hmm.... good that they are making it right for you, they seemed like a good company when I talked to them. I think chvykller used their kit on his quad cab and only achieved like 1" or less of a drop...

I think on my truck it gave me a little more than 2" of drop. I measured from the ground to the fender like they said and its exactly a 1/4" lower. They said that the spacers come in latest shipments. I got mine off amazon so it may have been manufactured earlier.

I see. Some members and I (including chvykller) tried to help them out supplying them some info on different spring combinations on different models. Maybe/hopefully it was useful to them and that's where they came up with different spacers now for different models...

Ya my kit had no spacers in it but mines dead on and as far as the 22's i had them black and believe me polished is so much sexier looking.And nice job so far looking good.

Some more suggestions for you tint out the puddle lights they pop off and are very easy to tint and id say go for it with the tails 3 light coats should do the trick.And hell while your at it tint the 3rd brake light to and you think about painting your exh tips

Thank you, do you have a picture of the 22's in black? Did you plasti dip them or powder coat them? I'm still deciding if the black will look good with the gray. I really do like the wheels polished also. As far as the spyder headlights I did order them in chrome for now, they said if I don't install them I can swap them for the black ones if I want. Im thinking I want to put a light tint on the taillights not really dark.

I agree the polished do look better, post a picture when you get the inserts painted. I haven't found any of those for sale in a while, they had some on ebay for $1,500 but they had curb damage on them. I went to a rim shop and had my truck on a lift and tried different wheels that they had in stock and I just can't find anything that looks as good or as light as the R/T wheels.

Well this has made my decision very easy. I bought the R/T thinking that was a one of a kind truck. Now it seems everyone wants one, so lets make a fake one. Like the fiero/lambo. I have had mine 1 month and about 500 miles into it, if I knew then what i have learned now i would have never bought this truck. Its embarssing to be driving this thing around when people ask you if its real or fake because so many posers decided to flood the market with fake ones. On that note, good bye Ram R/T, going back to Chevy. Lesson learned.
