The owner of this 2019 Ram 2500 visited Driven Sound and Security in Marquette to ask about having the vehicle detailed and the suspension upgraded. The client wanted a ceramic coating on the paint to help make it easier to take care of. He also asked for our complete interior protection package. The final project was for our team to install a 2.5-inch lift kit and airbags on the rear of the vehicle.
As you are probably aware, we love pickup trucks and were excited to dive into this project.
Suspension Lift Kit with Airbags
We started the upgrades with the installation of a BDS 2.5-inch lift kit. The suspension kit includes all the brackets and arms required to ensure the front suspension geometry remains accurate so the vehicle will drive safely. New shock absorbers work with the increased height to main a smooth ride without the chance of anything bottoming out.
On the rear of the vehicle, we added a set of Air Lift airbags in place of the stock springs so the client would have control over the height when the truck was loaded or towing a heavy load. We combined the bags with a compressor system that can be controlled wirelessly using a Bluetooth connection. This compressor solution allows the operator to level the truck from outside the vehicle to ensure it’s sitting flat.
Vehicle Protection Package
Once we completed work on the suspension, we started on the detailing and protection package. We washed the truck and gave the paint a thorough decontamination before doing a Level 1 correction. This process removes rail dust and fallout, with a smooth, glossy finish. An application of Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light ceramic coating will make washing the truck much easier and help to prevent swirl marks.
We vacuumed the interior and wiped down all the surfaces to remove dust. Where appropriate, we protected the upholstery with Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric AB and L1 Leather Guard, and the dash and trim with C6 Matte Dash. These products help prevent UV damage while making it easier to keep the surfaces clean.
The last step was to apply three coatings of G1 ClearVision Smart Glass to repel rain and make it much easier to see.
