Default To lower or not to lower?

That is the question. Hauled some wood recently and it got me thinkin.. I'd probably just lower the back 2 inches to level the truck out but who knows.. what do yall think? Any guys with kits have any input?

I don't like how the back is lower than the front in the pics but they give a general idea.

If your going to haul regularly, and need the clearance, id go just 2" rear drop. IMO, a leveling eitger the front or the back makes a truck look 10000x better, and since its 2wd i say lower the rear and call it a day.

With the 2/4 you have very little travel left, maybe 1 1/2", i hauled a quad 8 hrs and bottomed out bad a few times. But you could away add helped bags too!!

Oh and with a rear level youll still have a very mild rake

Install a McGaughy's 2/4 Econo drop and a set of $100 helper bags and you'll be set. The truck looks good but you can add a couple pounds of air and haul anything you could at stock height.

Drop kit:

Bags: They say for a Durango, but that's what you need for a 2/4 dropped Ram.

Definitely like the idea of a rear end level! My previous truck had a 1-7/8" drop on the rear to level it. There are pics of the truck on my profile if you want to check them out

I love the look lowered, but there have been some issues with handling after a belltech 2/4 drop, myself included.
As far as the look, heck ya. Drop it.
Was kind hoping there was someone on here that new how to fix the infomouse R/T wag.
