lol hey nothing wrong w/ that....I was lookin at that exact truck b4 I got mine. They look sweet lowered w/ all the goodies, not to mention that Hemi roars w/ an exhaust! Reg cab Rams look sick.

I'd go with like a 2/5 or a 3/6. Those dodge's have a terrible rake. I know my buddies sat 3.5" lower in the front than in the back.

The gap between the tire and wheel well is massive too.

Here is my friend's 03 reg cab. It got a 2/4 McGaughys drop kit, Street Scene bumper, painted grill, roll pan, stock 20's on 275/55s etc..
He has the 4.7L and it roars with his glasspack exhaust.

Upgrade IMO Scott, I love all new Dodges. My dad has a flowmaster on his hemi and it sounds sick, old school muscle car sound.

The glasspacks sound awesome. He had his tips coming out the back at angle, but then cut em off when he put the drop on. It was louder coming out of the back.

I was about to say the same thing. I've seen a few with 4/6 drops on the factory 20's and it looked good but still had a rake. 3/6 with 285/50's would be about perfect on it. I think the glasspack exhaust would be good; or a Power Stick from Classic Chambered. Here's a clip of one on a Hemi Magnum:
