    I have been considering doing a ram runner build but with just a regular suspension since it is my daily driver and I don't ever plan on jumping sand dunes. With this being said. I don't like the stock height so I would want to lift my truck. Bigger is better so I was thinking a 6in lift but the Ram runner has a 4inch lift and the wheel gap seems pretty big already due to allowing wheel travel so I am thinking of going down to a 4in zone/bds lift. I don't really have planned to run 37s anytime soon What would you do?

    I like the look of a ADD bumper and just fenderflares but I rather go all out if Im going to do it.

    I saw there was one memeber on here that halfway did it with his Ram but he had a rough country lift and probably a body lift so it didn't look too good

    I think it would look odd with just a Zone lift. You would have to get the BDS, with fox coil overs and upgraded upper arms. That way it looks the part somewhat. I dunno, just my opinion. That's what I would consider and it would look and perform pretty good to. Far from a ram runner of course. But it would be cool and look good.

    My understanding, is that zone, a sister company of BDS, offers a cheaper BDS version.....hence the birth of zone. I don't think you can really get the coil overs to help compliment the look if you go with Zone.

    I can always add the coilovers later If I wanted too. May main concern is wheel well gap so I am going to go with a 6in lift and see about everything from there

    What size tires are on that ram runner? 33's? the stance and wheel well gap is perfect...
