My 14 did the same thing. The Carlo drop brackets fixed it.

Good job on the kit.

Now, for the love of God, go aim you fuckin headlights properly.
Every person driving at night thanks you.

I've seen WAY to many leveling kits installed on 3/4 and one ton rigs (for reasons I can't comprehend) only to bypass adjusting the lights.
Issue compounds when a trailer is hooks into the ass.

Cuz, big trucks are for hauling stuff. Why make the front end lighter?

Because bro

Don't forget to add shitty ass blue hid bulbs to the stock housings. Did a trip with a buddy to WA and back in his '11 f350 with that exact shit, leveling kit with 35s on 20s and all. By the time we got home, my eyes actually hurt from the shitty blue light reflecting off the snow and every 3rd car flashing this high beams at us.

Once the frame bends behind the cab they'll be fine

Go to advance auto and buy an eraser wheel and take off the huge ugly ass badges on the doors and tailgate. Then some limo tint ftw.

No idea. It was the first thing I did to my '14. I agree completely. It's like someone cant tell is a Ram2500 or something. The new Ram Rebel with the ram across the grill is super gay. Ford started it all with the raptor so I blame them.

Keith, just an fyi, the large ram on the tailgate is bolted in, so don't try to remove that one.

I'm pretty much impartial to debadging normally, but I'm with you here.

Never thought about that badging except maybe getting the black ones. Probably won't do anything since it's my daily driver and I don't really care.

The Ram on the tailgate is actually just held on with 2 sided tape. Very stubborn 2 sided tape, but it will come off with some prying. I took the letters off a company truck last weekend to replace them with our logo.

Arent there two alignment pins on the back badge? Those holes have to go somewhere.

There are 2 alignment pins on each letter, but no fasteners or anything.

I was talking about the large ram on the center of the tailgate. Not the letters.
