Default 4" or 6" Lift with 35's
Hey guys!

I am new to the forum as I just bought a 2017 Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab 4x4. I am starting to save up the money for a lift, but I am having a hard time debating between a 4" or 6" lift. I know for a fact that I am wanting to stick to 35x12.50 tires, but I don't want to do a 4" and regret not going to a 6" or going with a 6" and thinking the 35's are too small. Any thoughts? Pictures would be very helpful too. PS. I want it to sit perfectly level at either height.

Thanks,
Eric

So, here's the kicker.... a 4" or 6" lift will leave you with the factory rake. So if you go with a 4" lift, then add the bilstein Adj struts, you can get close to the 6" lift and remove the factory rake.

I had a 4" superlift and added bilsteins set at 1.4". So that's 5.4" lift and I only had about 1/2" of rake. You could do the 2.1" setting at be slightly nose high, but only by about 1/4"

6" lift. I probably sit nose high about 1/4" with this procomp setup, but you really cant tell. Sorry, no pictures on level ground. Lift shop showed me a small spacer I could remove to bring down the front a little and may get me level, but I'm totally happy with it and I was initially determined on being perfectly level as well. If you are even thinking you may regret not going up to 6" lift, then just do the 6". Just that 2 extra inches will give it a different look.

First, in order to decide what lift will yield your "level stance", you need to measure the difference in height from front fender height to ground -vs- rear fender height to ground (or wheel center), most are about 3" higher in rear but it does vary.

To answer your question, to fit 35's all you need is a 4" lift kit (any brand), or the 6/3 Zone/BDS lift kit.

6” with 35’s and still fits under standard 7foot garage door, as well as parking garage at work. Thinking about going to 37’s next time I need tires.
