I do but I didn't think anyone would want to see a stock truck. I will see if I can post them.

just wanted to see a comparison of how it sits.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Nick,

Nice ride - I will try to post some pictures of my 3500 SRW 2008 later this week (I am on the road). After heavily modifying my last two trucks I decided to take it easy on this one. I added a Ready Lift leveling kit and put on some KMC XD Hoss 795 18" wheels with 285/18 BFG's. It looks good, but still a little small. I also installed Line X bed liner, Amp Research steps, Tranfer Flow 56 gallon replacement tank and a couple of Nitrogen tank racks in the bed for quick air of of truck and Warrior at the dunes.

I found the ride quality with the stock tires and the Ready Lift was not as good. The front shocks feel too short or like they can't keep up on bumpy roads. Even with the taller tires (285's) the ride quality is not a good (not that it was great before), but not bad for a 1 ton truck.

I am happy with it so far but I am sure the stereo will need a little work before I am done.

Do you have any pics of the truck when it just had the leveling kit on it? I just bought a 07.5 DRW, it's bone stock and driving me nuts.

Great truck!!

Did you look at the first page of thsi thread? I still have my 295's when it was leveled. You are not far from me at all. Here is a pic when I was pulling my F250 and Andy's,
