Ok guys,
First off, let me start by saying, I know this is the section for 4x4's! I purchased my 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 2WD last year after driving Chevy Z71's for years. I NEVER put my vehicles in the mud, I just love the look of 4WD's, so I figured I didn't need a 4WD anymore. A year has gone by and I love my truck (it will haul ass with the 3.92 Rear End and the other mods I've done). I have gotten tired of the 2WD look, so it was either get rid of the 2WD and buy a 4WD, or make the 2WD look like a 4WD...The before and after pics will show the results! I love the outcome and wanted to share with other enthusiast's!

MODS:

5" Performance Accessories Lift (3" Body Lift & 2" Leveling Kit)
Moto Metal 955 (20x10) wheels
Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrain 305/55R20 tires
Magnaflow 14" Single-In/Dual-Out Muffler (removed factory resonators)
K&N 77 Series FIPK Air Intake
*Still waiting on the Diablosport Predator Tuner to become available!

@ Bighorn 4 Life, typo brother on the gears, I meant 3.92! I purchased the R/T emblems from the dealership after I saw a 2011 Charger with the same emblem set-up at the dealership the day I bought my truck...I liked the look and wanted it for my truck, EVEN THOUGH it's not an R/T!

BigHorn 4 Life, I see you have a Superchips 91 Octane Tune...Does the Tuner really help that much for these engines? I've had chips/programmers for all of my previous vehicles and didn't see much gain in power!

The R/T looks really good on there. All is good, I was just making sure you knew they 3.92's :). Some people don't.

Even with 87 tune I can tell a difference. 91tune shaved off .2 seconds so pretty happy about that. I ran from 0-60 with 87 tune and Got 6.71. I ran the same on 91tune and got 6.51. So I think it makes a huge difference. Expecially with the right size tires in the computer. Running these times with 37's is pretty good if you ask me. I have a 14" magnaflow in it now.

NONE HenDom! I love the set-up I chose...actually, people are amazed when I tell them it's only 5"! They say it looks like 7 or 8 inches to them...the top of the fenders measure 8 3/4" from the tires all the way around...perfect for 33" tires...I have seen a guy's truck with the same set-up running 35" tires and it looks good, just less fenderwell space.

Do you know if you can run the stock rims with the 305/55r20 tires with no rubbing?

Great looking truck ProudDaddy! I'm in the same boat, sort of. Got a great deal on our '09 1500 2wd and couldn't turn it down. But I've always loved 4wd and the look of a lifted 4wd. There's so many discussions on the leveling kits for the 2wd but yours looks great. Would you happen to have the part number for the level kit? Thanks! And I'm shopping for wheels/tires right now so the pics help a ton!
