Are they the Crome stock 20s? Wanna trade? Mine also have brand new tires.

seems like a waste i guess... dropping a 4x4.... maybe airbags would be the way to go for me that way I could lift it and stick some 35's on it.... drop it and use my stock tire size.... but whats the maximum airbag height and drop... i think ive seen 4 inchers but thats the biggest I have ever seen

yea I agree, airbags are the way to go. All you have to do is have two sets of wheels, off and on road. ive seen bags with 3 compartments. I'd say 15 inches on suspension travel. Check out airbagit.com

im not runnin any right now. just took the rubber out the front, still have the cups. and as for the rear i took those out completely. i bottom out often, but im gonna get some adjustable air shocks for the rear for haulin stuff and that will also solve the bottoming out issue...

i have a DJM 2/4 kit on my ram, custom shackles in the rear so its about 2/4.75. Nitro drop shocks out back and factory up front. it rides great, sometimes i forget its even lowered... until it bottoms out while im drivin. as long as i drive carefully i can avoid it. id say thats pretty good for no bump stops or notching! i am gonna "trim" the front up a bit for better clearence. better to have it and not need it than the other way around.
