Steve brought his Dodge in with one thing in mind: lay frame on 22's.   Not a big deal, the bonus?  The truck lays lower, lifts higher and rides better after a rework of his suspension.  Don't ask us, just ask Steve.  He'll gladly tell you how much better the ride is.

Travis making clearance for the big wheels. Restructuring the rear suspension begins with removal of the old air suspension. We'll also be cleaning up the wiring a bit and triggering the compressors off the ignition switch.

Bag is visible through the hole in the fenderwell. Bed fenderwells need to be raised to clear the 22's. Truck able to lay in the front.  On the ground where it belongs. Back needs 2 more inches but we need to rework the gas tank to make it lay.
