A Second Round of Upgrades on My 2009 Dodge Ram 1500March 23rd, 2010 by admin
Last time I showed you guys how I increased the power on my 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD 5.7 Hemi Crew Cab Big Horn Edition. This time I decided to tackle an even larger project:
1. The next upgrade on my list was a big one: a Lowering kit from Ground Force Suspensions. This was a front 2″, rear 3″ drop with front and rear coil springs, bumpstops, and shocks. I did this install in my driveway, which is about a 6 hour job. It was very clear in the instructions and I had no issues understanding what to unbolt, install, or cut. The kit rides great and has the factory ride quality, allowing me to take bumps and potholes without slowing down.
2. I had my local Redondo Beach store align my truck and mount and balance some 24 inch Lexani wheels and tires. They fit PERFECTLY and looked amazing.
3. My last two installs were a Gaylords fiberglass tonneau cover and window tint. The Gaylords lid took about 3 weeks to make and featured their Speedsturr Winglid, carpet, EZ connect system, and was painted to match my truck. I did install this at home and it took less than an hour with no cutting or drilling. The window tint was also done at the Redondo Beach location and looks great; I do not have any bubbles or streaks.
All together these mods have made my truck look great, go fast, and save money. What more could a guy ask for?
