Installed the level kit, was a PIA. Didn't take any pics or post measurements yet. Now I'm waiting to get truck back from Don Boeke at his shop "the Egyptian" (nationally celebrated custom builder)-- having the bumpers/grill/fender flares Line-X & a few other tricks done. Should be done in a few days, been there 2 wks now.


Does it look like it skipped leg-day with those 33's? :lol:


Funny, but yeah a little. It's ok, 35's or 37's & new wheels are coming as soon as I can narrow down the choice ...

Before and After

Postby adeluca73 » Mon Jun 27, 2016 1:41 pm

Got the wagon back from having the bumpers and a little more done to remove the chrome and go for the blacked-out look. Intent was just to reduce regular maintenance in keeping the chrome looking respectable, and from there my list expanded:

-Splash graphics removed (I did that a month ago)
-Blacked out badges
-Line-x Front and rear bumpers, head light trim, grill, bug deflector, and fender flares
-Custom painted Ram emblems
-Powder coated tow hooks red
-Added Laramie style POWER WAGON in black to tailgate
-Custom painted center wheel caps

Oh and I measured the post level kit front-rear difference, and it's about 1/2" on the pax side, and about 1/4" on the drivers side, which from my before measurements works out to about exactly 1.5" gained. No alignment needed. Drives same, no noticeable difference to me, but since I just got it back, haven't wheeled it yet, but will try to get out and test it all out before I depart for DC in a month.

Still deciding if I want to remove the side PW decal--I'm leaning towards removing it...thoughts????

Looking really good man, I especially like the tailgate! I'm inclined to say remove the side graphics completely. Your truck has class sir! :rockon:

I'm a bit jealous, I have debated blacking out the chrome on my truck too but I have a lot more than you had. Since you're asking, I'm not a fan of the vinyl except for the center hood decal.

Your passenger side spring looks like a slinky. How have your tires worn? My factory alignment was off considerably to the point I could see strange wear patterns developing. The steering felt really tight and took some effort in hard fast turns.

If it was mine, I would lose all the graphics. I did the same with my SLT and added the laramie "power wagon" emblem to the tailgate and I like how it sets the truck off. Blacking out all the chrome emblems looks great!

Copy--I'm leaning removing too, I just waited till it's all done first because once they're gone, they're gone, but just wanted to see it all together first. I'll remove this weekend.

I'm starting to get "little tire" insecurity... Didn't realize everyone noticed :chug:

Really, no issues, I actually measured tread depth from in-out on all 4 today, & has less than 5% variation. I have rotated them just about every oil change, & I know that goes a long way to prolonging even tread life. The spacer kit actually removed a good bit of the spring bow I had before, there's still some, but not nearly as much before.

Looks awesome! That front end looks very familiar.... lol. I'm with everyone else on the side graphics, take them off, would look better that way. Also black the rims and bigger tires! Would look badass then!

Looks great! I vote to remove the side decals as well... Quick question... Which LineX did you go with? It doesn't look as textured or shiny as some others that I have seen... Also, did you cut out the center caps of the wheels? Is that in preparation of a free spin kit? Now all you need is some 37's... :rockon:

What was off on the alignment? What did you change it to? Did it help your driving experience? I have noticed what appears to be really tight steering as well as needing a bit of effort in hard turns. I dont notice it much until I drive my wifes Yukon... that freekin thing steers absolutely effortlessly compared to my truck.

Hey 14/15PWaggy--the Line-X was a custom blend they made up to match the Diamondback & WK sliders, I'll be back with the Egyptian this week to pick up my center caps & I'll find out what they used exactly. Don't think we can use free spin hubs with the CAD, unless There's something new out.
