Need help with lift/levling kit!
Hi I have a 2008 Ram 1500 2WD and I was wondering the Pros/Cons of getting a 4 inch Lift/Leveling kit, and where would be the best place to buy one from?

Pros: looks, ability to run larger tires. Cons: increased load on steering components, premature wear. I think the fabtech performance line is decent. It has new coilovers with the kit and seems to address the improper angles their basic kit doesn't. It costs a lot of money to get a good lift kit. If it isn't a couple thousand dollars, chances are you'll be fixing/replacing/complaining sooner then you'd like.

I wouldn't base a good lift on price, that just tells you what they can get people to pay. I would base it on reviews. I can think of a company that charges waaaaay too much for grills, tips and wheels.
Also to add, reduced fuel economy. Once you level a truck you will lose some fuel economy, lift it you will lose a bit more, larger wheels even more. I know owning a truck you don't buy for fuel economy, but 9mpg vs 12mpg city is a big difference.

Oh almost forgot, check out the vendors and sponsors they usually have really good prices....
