With the leveling kit, does that raise the front end up to be level with the rear? If that's a the case, does the truck squat when heavily loaded? I thought the reason the back end was higher was Because when they are loaded the truck is then level?
Yes it does, somewhat,!when I add front bumper replacements and winch, the front end of the diesel is already heavy. With the added weight it will be more heavy and rake down even more without the leveling kit. I hate a rake down truck. Most people on here don't use there trucks off the road like I do. About all are highway queens. Mine is not, it has to work for its keep. From mud when I'm helping irrigate rice on the farm to going in and out of hay fields. Also, cannot run the 33 inch wider tire without it. As someone stated above, I will airbag it, but it's not because of the leveling kit. LUTT

Just curious as to the final drive (differential) ratio and whether taller tires will create an issue there?
Not a whole lot, not much of a change from the roughly 31 inch tall tire from factory. LUTT

Very nice looking truck! Is the trailer plug in the bed a factory option? I like that B&W hitch better than the old model I have.
Yes, the trailer plug in the truck bed is part of the fifth wheel/goose neck prep package. B&W designed a hitch that fits the factory's puck mounts. Basically a plug and play, easy to take in and out albeit I have to use the tractor and fork lifts to load and unload the hitch, too heavy for me alone.

Western brown with matching seat color with light brown piping and with out the seating filigree. I ordered the truck with RAM's rear air leveling system, this really helps smooth out the ride of a one ton when empty. Here is the full data and tracking.
