    I guess they have plenty of business.
    Turns out they DID want my business and got me dialed in. Better than new now.
    Just spent another weekend in the snow with it, pickups shouldn't go where this thing will go in 2wd.

    You getting it leveled?

    Vince got his RAS installed, mine is at the house, going to do it Monday.

    He said it lifted the rear about 3/4inch and with his boat he is seing just under 2inch drop, so really about 1 inch from the stock height.

    I ordered a soft tonnaeu cover, and a bed rug for mine, hope it shoes up soon lol.

    Wanted to post a couple updates.

    I installed the Road Master Active Suspension System.
    It raised the rear of the truck about 1 inch.
    I still get a 3 inch drop when I hook up the boat but the truck looks more level then it used to.
    I am a little disapointed I get a drop but I guess this is part of the design.

    I will say the Ride is great. You get no bouncing over bumps, the truck feels very stable in turns, and when unloaded the truck rides very nice. It has a lot less body roll in corners no also. I am how ever thinking of adding Air bags still. I need to talk to Air Lift and see what they think and make sure its not counter productive to the suspension I added.

    I have also added a low pro bed cover, its the soft roll up style and the Bed Rug. Didn't take a picture of the bed rug.

    After RAS upgrade


    Upgrade its self.

    Looking good Mike. I got mine cleaned up today after I put my lift on Sunday. I picked wheels that won't be out for 2-3 months and went with a lift Les Schwab doesn't sell so I had to install it myself. It's a Auto Spring 2.5" with rear add a leaf.

    Nice, Yesterday I took the RAS off, readjusted it. It has 4 adjustment bolts that go under under the leaf spring at the axle, I was on the farthest forward, moved it back to the 3rd closest to the axle. Now i am only getting 1.5inch of drop when I load the boat on.

    Looks better.
