Anyone have experience or pics of 37 inch tires with a 4 inch or less lift? I won't be driving this every day and want capability for some off-roading. I'm set on going with 37s, for more clearance, and want minimal lift height. I'll use an aftermarket bumper to allow for clearance (probably Addictive Desert Design). Thinking of using the A.E.V. 4 inch lift, but adding King shocks instead of the Bilsteins the kit comes with. I think I like the look of a 4 inch lift on the 1500 with 37s more than a 6 inch or level. Truck is a 2013 Sport non air ride.

I've seen 2 people successfully use a 2.5 shock kit, like the ICON, with an aftermarket bumper for 37s. I'm guessing you could use any 2.5 shock kit like King or Fox as long as you achieve lift of roughly 2.5 inches or more in the front (so essentially level).

Trying to learn as much as I can before starting. Has anyone done this and able to offer advice/considerations/suggestions/pics?

Thanks!

Yes I run and offroad 37's on 2.5/2.75" front depending on when I measure :) lift with King CO and shocks. I've posted on another thread how. Tires are KO2 37x12x5x17, wheels are 17x9 -12offset.

That's super helpful. Thanks for sharing and posting with so much detail. I'm now thinking about waiting until they release details on the TRX. Either will trade in for that or buy a 2020 ecodeisel and do some kings and 37s following your build.

Hate to bring this back @ram1500rsm and @Harley1200
But realized im also i Socal, and basically have your copy cat builds!
Im also running 37x12.5r17 with a 0 offset up front, (my wheel and tire combo is 96 lbs!) i have ironman full suspension, (supposed to be 2.5 up front, 2inch spring in the rear), after seeing your photos i think i may have more than a 2.5 lift up front. Is there anyway you guys can post a hub to fender well measurement so i can figure out, i had stock airride before and deleted that, without taking measurements(because it popped) .

Thanks in advance!

I'm messing with my current setup and pulled numbers off a stock truck today. CCLB was the truck.

Hub to fender +/- .25"]
20.5" front
23.5" rear
