    Just wanted to start a build thread of my truck. I’m working on copying the AEV recruit.
    Truck info:
    2016 Ram 1500 sport 6’4” bed
    5.7 Hemi w/ 8 speed
    3.92 gears

    Mods so far:
    -AEV Mesa Wheels
    -2 inch spaced level. (Not sure which brand as it came on the truck)
    -AEV procall for tire recalibration
    35x12.5R18 BFG KO2’s
    -eBay Ram 2500 flares
    -Yakima overhaul HD bed rack

    Hopefully will be getting the 4 inch AEV lift next month.

    Looks good! How do the 35's fit with just the level? Any rubbing?

    Thanks! I had small amount of rubbing on the inner plastic wheel well but we just pulled it back a little and it’s fine now. Other than that they fit great!

    I have looked at BDS and the Zone kit but I put the AEV dual sport lift on my Jeep and I loved it so I’m going to go AEV again. Expensive yes but they make an excellent product
