Well done! You did such a great job on building the ultimate Dodge 2500. Let us know how it drives and things you really like about what you have done. I love those AWD civics as I wanted one so bad when I was younger. Looks cool with rack on top and big ole tires.

Thanks. Drives well so far, apart from some still present steering wander and an axle wrap/hop issue. Fixed the axle issue with a set of ladder bars, and I suspect I’ll need a steering box and maybe column bushings for the steering. It’ll have to wait, we’re leaving for vacation in two days!

What size tires are you running, bamtech? Look like 285's. I'm wanting to take my level kit off as well and use a shorter rear block.

They are 285/75R16. I think that’s about as big as I want to go, unless I find something taller yet narrow.

I probably won’t lower the rear, seems to work pretty well as is for me.
