    ^Thanks for that info. Looks a bit above my skill level though for the labor.

    Really looking for a compilation of pics to help sway my decision.

    It's really not that hard at all. I've never messed with coil springs and I did this myself, in a couple hours.

    Got any pics of your truck?

    ^^ lowered pics - I really think I like this look better. My truck isn't going hunting - or off roading. Besides the snow and Stadium grass field parking it's going to be in 2wd 90% of the time. I'll get the air bags if I need them for hauling in the future. Here's a couple pics...

    Nice! Good looking truck! That's what I'm doing. Just bought a set of 1000 lb air bags from a member on here. I'll throw up a how to when I get them installed :pedobear:

    Hey guys! I'm new to the site. ^^^^ trucks are looking real good!! I just bought a 2012 1500 sport crew cab 4x4 I am wanting to lower my truck also 2 and 4 or 2 and 3 drop. I tried ordering a kit to do this and the dealer i went to tried to order me a kit from ground force and they are back ordered! Then the dealer i went to told me that ground force says that lowering a 4x4 is not common. So my dealer says because of this ground force might not even make any more kits!?! So im just wondering if anyone knows of another dealer that might have one on the shelf that a guy could buy??? I am also told that bell tech doesnt even make a kit for this year of Dodge??? Any info on this would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
