It does look dead on but it measures about a 1/4" lower. The number is (724)430-2068. I did install it at a buddys 4x4 shop with their help and it was a pain to get to that top bolt off. I didn't take the fender liner off, they had a air ratchet that was thin enough to get in there. Other then that it was pretty easy to install.

Thanks for posting up the pictures, trucks look great. I'm pretty sure I have my eyes set on a 2 inch rear drop. Have you guys towed with that set up? Thanks

if you get the tufftruck springs for the rear drop they are 10% stiffer than OEM. With those and the helper bags you should be good to tow

Nice trucks fellas..

Couple questions:
-does anyone have any pics of 94-01 rams lowered?
-Are the wheels on the newer rams fit the 94-01 5 lugs?

Lowering these trucks definitely makes a big difference, it rides and handles alot better. If you drive fast in these trucks the lowering kit makes it a lot more stable at higher speeds.

No kits out there more than 2/4 for the 4th gens. Too many of the companies say there sin't a big enough market for them, which is one reason modding ther rams are so much more expensive compared to the ford and chevs.
