From the Driver SeatThis install was one of the easiest Fantastic Four tech stories we've done. Thanks to the new coil suspension on the Ram, lowering one is fast and the overall look was spot-on. Ground Force did its homework with this kit and we would recommend it. Our Ram handles great and the ride wasn't negatively affected. Our only trade-off was difficulty getting the new '09 Ram alignment specs perfectly straightened out. The Giovanna wheel and Toyo Tire combo is one that we're constantly receiving compliments on. The look really sets the truck off and the 295/35R24 is the perfect size for the drop kit. Rain traction was drastically improved with the new Proxes ST II. Airaid has some of the best instructions for an intake air system and this kit went on easily, though the filter itself did take some convincing. MagnaFlow may want to come out with a new box that has a "scratch and hear" option, because if you hear our Hemi's rumble, the sound can be addicting. Special thanks to The Custom Truck Shop for getting us in and out with zero problems. Got a new Ram? Want it to look and perform on a whole new level? Give these companies a call and tell them we sent you.
