    Hey guys, i have a 2018 1500 2WD Sport. I currently have 2'' rough country coils added to the front to help level it out, but i want to go ahead and take it up higher. I'm looking at 4-6'' lift, but i'm not quite sure what brand/manufacturer to go with that will leave me with a close to factory smooth ride. I don't go off road or anything, so it's just for show. I do travel quite a bit so that's why i need to keep it comfortable. Is this even possible? Also, on a 6'' lift, i'm unsure what size tire and wheel to go with. Lastly, someone mentioned needing to get my gears done, in order to not have my lift bog down acceleration. I have no idea where to even start with that! Any help, suggestions, or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I looked at majority of your thread, looks nice. I was thinking a little higher but it actually doesn't look bad at all like that. Did you have to get it regeared? People keep telling me i have to do that if i get a lift or when i accelerate from 0 it will feel like i'm in 2nd gear.

    Technically you should if you go to bigger tires. It will affect acceleration. For example a wheel/tire combo that weighs 18 pounds more per wheel. So 18x4 = 72lbs. No biggie you are probably saying, my truck can haul way more then that. But tires are static weight so 72lbs is like hauling right around 550lbs all the time.

    Now with that said it isn't 100% needed but will help a good bit

    damn that 7'' on 37s looks nice! Tell me more about the gearing issue. How should i go about finding a good price for that? I'm stock currently..whatever that may be. I know nothing about that stuff. I don't want to get taken to the cleaners or anything. Any suggestions on what i'm after?
