You did or do plan on an alignment in your future??? You need it if you haven't. I am going to go with the 2" kit myself.

Yep, it was aligned On Friday. One thing interesting the guy said at Meineke. He said that my camber setting is now at the max when they did the alignment and he sugested going with a camber kit later on for about 140$. Any experiences on that?

I did the 2.5 on my 2011 Sport and I like it a lot. First thing that I did was go to Firestone for the lifetime front end alignment. its 40 more, but anytime I want I can have it adjusted. Now if only I could find the kinda deal I did on the HBS kit on a set of 35's....

These Rams sit and ride so much better with a leveling kit. Like the way the nose comes out of that nose dive. MY dealer did my level on the free !!!Sweet - eh

That looks great, Is that 2.5 kit a true 2.5 or a little less? And where did you get the step bars? Thanks

It was really close to 2.5". Like maybe a 1/4" less but not much. I ordered the step bars on eBay from overstockaccessoriesonline. It is 5" oval side step bars. I paid 296$ with free shipping and I put them on myself. They use 304 grade stainless steal and it has chrome ends unlike everyone else has plastic on the ends. It took 45 minutes to put them on. Very easy. They are mirror finish chrome. Love em.

Wow! Your truck grew a set of bars in between!

Funny thing is: my bars and 2.5" HBS kit are on the way, so I'll have the same before and after pics lol

Truck looks great man, congrats.
