It looks awsome a lot better than it did before.
But here's what I don't understand people invest a lot of money in these trucks for play or for work. If i was a engineer and understand some of my customer base this would be an option on the truck.. when paying from 50 to 90k this look would be standard not the way it was befor, or to have the option of air bags from the factory to help the driveability when hauling a heavy load...
Any ways love that truck.... I say slam it to the ground.....

In theory the spring rate should increase proportionally to the amount of coil decrease. So if it had 15 coils, you would have about a 10 percent increase.

I was definitely kidding. Hell I'm scared to run my 22x12 forged wheels on a 33x12.50 tire due to lack of sidewall.....
