    I have an '04 Dodge Ram quadcab HEMI and I want to lower the truck. My biggest concern is I still want to be able to tow my jet skies when I get them. How much of a drop should I go and what brand lowering kits should I use?

    Belltech is deffinately very reliable and has been around for a long time and know what they are doing whne it comes to lowering trucks.

    Pic of your truck to see how much of a drop is needed?

    Go sign up on DODGETALK.COM and look up a member named slammed1. He will be able to hook you up with the proper stuff. I believe he has modified close to a 100 dodge rams by now.


    I have a 2.5" front drop and a 5" rear drop on mine!

    10" lift would be sweet on that thing, but if it was mine, i'd go close to 20"

    My old man has an 03 Reg. Cab Hemi. He used drop spindles in the front for a 2" drop and drop springs for 4" in the rear. He ordered the "Sport Appearance Package" to get rid of most of the chrome and then debadged just about all of the rest of it (leaving the ram on the hood). Pretty conservative looking but not bad at all.
