    Looks good.
    Are you 3.21 or 3.96 rear end?

    Interesting. What year?
    I have a 2016 Longhorn, and I didn't know 3.55s with the 8 were even a thing?

    Nvmd... I see it's a 14.

    Icon 1.5” lift coils were installed today. Sitting at 39” in the rear and 38” in the front. Loving the amount of rake it has now. Next up, new shoes.

    Just finished mine. Went with Bilstein 6112 in the front and 5100 in the rear. Fronts set to 1.6. Wanted to make sure that I did not have any issues with CV joints or four-wheel-drive as some of had. Also left the upper control arms stock. In hindsight I may have been able to go to 2.0 and still have a little rake but I can always change it later. So far this set up really feels amazing. So much better than the stock shocks. Would highly recommend.

    Before and after.

    If I could leave my trucks stock I might have standard gears but I know myself better, but then again I would of bought a 6 cyl if I was really concerned about gas mileage I guess. I used to buy 4.10s and ran 35s so in the end being I commuted alot at 65mph I was turning the same rpms as the guy with standard 3.55s and stock tires . It all depends what you want to do with your truck and look like doing it . I preferred the the taller 4x4 look and still had great performance and mileage . Transmissions were a bit of an issue back in 2000 also so not laboring the engine causing excessive down shifting because of it needed to be kept in mind also. If I have a hemi I want all that goes with the better part of 400hp or I'd bought a 6cyl. But thats me , hard to beat the options gears open up especially with the front diff these trucks came with ,welded in ring gear who ever came up with that idea... . 3.55s snuck by me on the last Ram , won't never happen again.
