Forums are full of people and people in general are dumb AF so don't hang your hat on what any of us says.

Superlift is who Ram turned to for the Mopar-branded 2 and 4 inch suspension lifts, if that means anything.
What are you getting at with that comment? To trust that setup? Also any advice on it fitting in a garage?

So people seem to like zone lifts why no love for 4 inch super lift with new springs out back and bilsteins?
Zone is owned by BDS I believe and is their more budget friendly brand. I personally really like the product that BDS puts out so Zone should manufacture comparable stuff.

Here is a link to the kit I'm thinking of running in combination with Bils https://www.americantrucks.com/readylift-4-sst-lift-kit-0917-4wd-ram-1500-w-o-air-ride.html
To clarify there is nothing wrong with the readylift kit. However that is all you get with it, there is no setting your billstiens higher, getting more lift later etc. The kit is the kit that's it. Most want that extra inch or two so spending the few extra dollars on a bracket kit leaves the door open to future upgrades and height adjustments. We do a lot of the readylift kits on leased rams because they can go back to stock unlike the bracket lift.

I have been mulling a four inch lift for months. I need to get a lift that allows my brothers 285’s duratracs to fit. I need to figure this out sooner than later for sticker reasons but I’m at the point where I think four inches is good height. I’ve seen super lift and think that’s the best idea so can anyone tell me I’m wrong?

I have 305/70r18 (35/12) on my truck sitting at 3” front lift height and 1.5” rear lift height. Had 2.5” front lift height and 1” rear lift with the same tires and no rub. I’ll be dropping back to 2.5 lift height eventually for personal reasons. A 285 width tire is not much over stock so it’s fairly easy to fit without issue. The proper offset of wheel or proper wheel spacer is all you need to fit 35s on a leveled truck. But same goes for a lifted truck. If all you’re going for is just to fit bigger tires than any cheap 4” suspension kit will do or even a good leveling kit. If you want to lift for off-roading than you need to do the research for yourself on which kit best fits your interests money wise. Nobody can decide that for you.

I mean as it is stock it won’t fit those 285 duratracs will it with the stock rims?

What about the super lift kit on their site that is a bracket lift if I recall?
