Hey all...
I installed my 5100 bilstein front shocks today and BFG 275/65/20 AT KO's tires and I am overly pleased with the results..

I opted for the 1.4 lift because I like a little rake..
Measurments before lift were 22.50 from the bottom of my center cap to lip. After it measured 24.00 inches.
My rear is 25.25, so I know have a 1.25 inch rake..
Intial toughts after installed was WOW I love the new stance and the tires look off the hook. Can't believe how much better the front end looks now off the ground..:smileup:
The Bfg AT KO is a great tire with practically no road noise and it looks sharp as ever,especially with the white letters out ( Big fan of white letters)... I have had these tires on past trucks and suv's and I know there are some people who don't like them but they honestly do everything good, maybe not great but good in everything, and the apperance of the aggresive yet no road noise tread makes up for everything else.. Did I say solid white letters.. :LOL:
I do have one ok picture but don't be fooled cause the in person apperance is 10x better.. I will try to add more pictures at a future date when she is detailed and I can get some better snaps...
Enjoy I know I will..............

Oh and absolutely no shutters or vibrations at any speeds in 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive...THANK GOD...

Let me know if you have any tire bottoming out in the fender wells when you hit the trails with it. I want to keep some rake too, but not at the expense of tires bottoming out. i am holding off on this install until I get more info. My dealers service manager told me that Mopar makes a leveling kit for my 2012 that does not interfere with front end travel but I need to see it. :)

I will keep you posted on that. But honestly I don't do any extreme off roading. just an occasional trail here and there.
Be cautious with the mopar kits I here they cause vibration from doing alot of research, that is why I opted for the bilstein, a little more expensive but way better reviews.. good luck

Looks pretty darn close to level to me. Congrats, it looks great! I've said it before and I'll say it again...that's the tire size Dodge should have put on the 20" equipped trucks from the factory.

Well done, looks fantastic. Amazing what a little leveling will do for the look of a truck. Enjoy.

I dont think this kit is available any longer...due to the problems with the wobble in 4WD...

however, My understanding is that the MOPAR kit was actually Bilstein shocks with a few added bushings and bumpers...
