I'm not partial the wheel gap of a 6" lift on 35" tires. I had 5" up front and 3.5" of lift in the rear. I ended up taking out 1" up front and 1.5" in the rear to lessen the gap between the fenders and wheels.

4" lift here with 35's. Very happy with the look. Went with 4" to get into my standard height garage. I might have still fit with the 6" but with the Nav puck on the rear driver's side the pucker factor would have been too great for me. Didn't want to push my luck.

That's my concern right now. I don't want to go 6" and have the tires look too small. I want everything to look proportional.

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"
Did you do the 2.1" setting on the bils? How was the ride? My stock rake is 3".

That looks great man. I really like that stance. What lift did you go with? Any tips? And do you have any idea of how it affects the warranty?

Another option is look at tire size 325/60R20, they measure 35.7 so when mounted on the truck it should be right at 35”, whereas a 35/12.50R20 is 34.7 and 34 on the truck.

Here’s a 4” lift, bils at 1.4 IIRC, 325’s on 10 wides

That's the exact look I want. I am thinking about the 4" Mopar lift with Bils in order to keep most of my warranty intact. But I love how that looks.

Nope. I ended up going to a 2015 Ram 2500 with 3/1 lift and 37x12.50s


btw, here was my 1500 on 295/60r20s and 4" superlight + bils @ 1.4"




here it is in better lighting showing the fender gap. Yes, the truck is filthy! I rained the day before.

You guys got me really thinking hard about doing a 4" instead of a 6". There are some good looking trucks here. My delimma is my 3.21s if I did 6" lift my heart is set on 37s but I know a regear would be needed. Decisions decisions
