Camp....don't talk yourself out of doing what you really want to do!!! If that was my truck and I had the extra dough, that's exactly what I would do to it and it will look AND handle awesome! You get that sport/muscle truck look combined with better handling and comfort, less noise, cheaper tires, and better fuel economy than a lifted truck. Not to mention the lowering kit will probably cost less than a quality lift kit. And you still have the convenience of 4x4 when you need it.

Everyone is different but I had the torsion bars cranked and Cooper Zeon LTZ all-terrain tires on my truck. I got a wild hair and lowered the torsion bars, added 2" rear drop shackles, and swapped the A/T tires for Cooper H/T tires and I've never been happier. I shaved the emblems off of the tailgate (including the 4x4 emblem) so to the casual observer it probably looks like a 4x2 but I could care less. I would lower it another couple inches if I could, lol.

Wanna know something funny?.. Even with my tires and my buds with chevs with 5.3 and 4.8L engines running eithor stock or 32" max tires... I am still faster then them, and get better fuel milage

All of those reasons is exactly why I want to go that route. I don't off-road anymore and do not even tow anymore. If you look at the pics I posted a few pages back I think my truck is starting to look more like a sport truck than a off-road truck with the emblems shaved and the black taillights and stuff. I think I just want to make my mods more performance oriented. Thanks for your opinion makes my decision even harder! Haha.
I think your the only person that agreed with the lowering besides my girlfriend(she has trouble getting in already haha)

Oh and by the way I think your truck looks awesome how it is now, it's very clean. A few members have lifted and then lowered and vise versa. I just think a lot of people are not happy with the first decision they make so I want to try and make the right one the first time lol.

I gotta agree with starquestbd22 on this one, i came from the country and it was lifted or nothing and when i moved to college i finally got away with that and i love the way the 4th gens look dropped its mean and if i didnt have to yank trailers around i would put my rear drop shackles back on in a heart beat

Thanks.

Anyone else notice silver doesn't seem to be as common with Rams as other vehicles?

I am still yet to see a silver Laramie like mine on the road.
