1500 vs 2500 I am sure the setup would be a least a fair bit different.

Just an update.

So I called BDS and RCX about there products on Friday. They just do the song and dance of trying to sell me a product. I can tell from there response to my questions they're just a salesman and have zero automotive backgrounds.

I did talk to a different Ram dealer on Saturday as well. They agreed with the Superlift statement about the possible rear drive shaft issues. He also said that even with using the rear adjustable upper control arms they can get the pinion angle close to factory specs but not right on target. They also surprised me with the lowest quote for a lift kit installation at $950 along with headlight adjustments, speedometer calibration and an alignment. He his getting back to me Monday for the cost of rear upper control installation and rear pinion angle adjustments needed.
