    Long travel rear suspension

    Dirt King and maybe Baja designs would be the 2 I imagine that have readily available kits for the front. Its been a minute since I looked into this to confirm. Plenty of guys run their 4wd kit, and beat the snot out of it. Limiting factor being 4wd cvs and likely shock diameter. Depending on...

    2019 Ram 1500 Classic White Warlock "Whitney"

    If you need some better rear springs Jeep Gladiator Coils all day. Obviously you don't change payload capacity, but the way it handles payload is beyond composed. I had mine loaded down to near max payload on a dump run, just about 800lbs, stuffed in 3ft between the bed box and tailgate. Sat...

    Desert Dawg 2020 Ram Rebel Build

    Bummer! But that just means you'll get to upgrade. I don't get update notices for the forum anymore, so often I miss a lot, but I saw your post on the other forum about changing it up in the suspension?

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    I replied in the other thread but I'll continue on here instead if hijacking that thread since the OP hasn't chimed in. I'll be honest, I'm gonna do this. Idk when, but it will happen. I'm gonna message Autoedits after I post this actually. Still have no idea how I missed this post of yours...

    Bumpstop Upgrades - Front 2017 1500 Regular Cab

    Of all the things you post and I never saw that back then....wtf lol. I would look into shock tuning as priority 1 as you can really step up the potential in those coilovers with just that alone. Than I would look into bump cans. If the stars moon and Jupiter align in the 3rd retrograde and I...

    Very Rough Ride!!

    I got no idea. Something is binding, obviously, but the big question is what.....Again obvious statement there. Honestly, if you can, I would rip that whole thing apart starting with the drivers side which is the potentially problematic side. At least with the struts out you can make sure they...

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    Boring rainy day. Just spent a little bit fine tuning some stuff on this thing. Need a hobby other than vehicles and guns according to the wife, so I tossed this together. Gonna try and hit a race or 2 this season once I get the bike dialed a bit more. Lets see how rusty I am, used to race...

    Very Rough Ride!!

    Just to clarify, my logic behind this was it seems he is running minimal up travel currently. Iirc the 6112s are a small amount longer in compression than stock, but not by much. With him having 3.5" down travel that leaves something like 2-2.5" of compression, taking into account the big bump...

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    Well the wife is full on against me ditching the truck. We all know how that goes, she gives me zero grief when it comes to what I do so when she actually chimes in I listen. I swear she likes the truck and jeep more than I do but won't ever admit it. Again, I love my truck, it was more of a...

    Very Rough Ride!!

    So it's worse with the sway bar off. And now you're leaning 1.25"? Is that with sway bar connected? Don't mind the overall height of the spacer it's self, just honor the lift height it's advertised for and offset that with the preload in the 6112s. Same theory as the ready lift 4" kits, except...

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    Yea I need to look at my potential replacement first and see if it's a viable option and than shop around if I decide to move forward with it. I owe 15k and i should get anywhere from payoff to 18k from what I'm seeing. But who knows. Everything is or sale for the right price. Thing is I really...

    2014 RAM 1500 Express Crew Cab

    For sure. I prefer to outfit a rig appropiately like you did and add as things progress. You get a better feel for what the rig can do in a basic form. Not that you're an example of this but all too often I see guys fully build a rig and than get themselves in trouble cuz they never wheeled in...

    That thing came out awesome! Did you do lockers or anything while in there?

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    I pulled the acetone out, had flashbacks and than got on YouTube to look at options. The rubbing alcohol works awesome, just don't do it in full sun or you're racing the evaporation and it's annoying. So side bar here, but I'm gonna take my truck down to the dealer and see what they'll give me...

    What did you do with your 4th Gen this week?

    Painted entire frame and high impact areas of the floor pans with some rustoleum. 6 cans of satin gloss and a miserable morning laying on my back degreasing it. But living in NJ it's a necessary evil. I'll give it a bit to cure and start hitting it with krown while it's hot so it can find the...

    Well... Its been fun fellas....

    I'll be honest, you'd have been silly to not make thst move, even if you did botch the numbers. I'm in a similar boat, been out of work almost 4 months now with my union just being slow. I'm seeing this more and more with trade ins and at times it's tempting to bring my truck down and see what...

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    1 bottle of degreaser, 6 cans of rustoleum and a black face later and the frame/high impact areas are all nicey nice again. I hate doing this. There's no fun way about it, even with the truck on ramps, but living in the north east it's a necessary evil. Now I can hit some quick touch ups and...

    https://www.motortrend.com/how-to/131-0904-2009-dodge-ram-suspension-upgrades/amp/ Most of the pics don't work for me but....according to this RAM engineers say the LCA is forged aluminum and plenty strong.... hmm

    Bumpstop Upgrades - Front 2017 1500 Regular Cab

    So I knew I had seen front bumps on a stock truck and I finally figured it out. @ram1500rsm @Kevin petro this changes things a little as I know this truck has been tortured and there's obviously been zero issues with the air bumps up front or that would have been mentioned. I'll try and dig...

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    Finally debadged this little bread box. Gave it the good old wd40 wipe down and pulled 2 years of my dogs hair out if the interior. Procrastinating pulling the axles apart since it's too damn hot to be covered in grease and 85-140w gear oil. The 1500 needs a good bit of cleaning and painting...

    Bumpstop Upgrades - Front 2017 1500 Regular Cab

    So for some reason I didn't get notified of your reply. I'm for sure curious to see what you guys do for setups! Considering desert is your genre I'm sure there's something adaptable or an idea I haven't seen yet. In the rear of our trucks, prothane coil inserts would be easy to stuff inside...

    Hodges 2016 Bilstein Build

    I'm over the mud, and the 1500 is the wrong tool for east coast rocks. Hell I won't even take my jeep on alot of stuff anymore since it's on 33s and most rigs live on 37s or bigger anymore. It would 100% mean definite damage on most of the fun trails I used to hit. At this point I'm leaning...
