Few Questions...4x4 shops and Rims
I picked up a 2007 Ram 1500 and I'm look'in to put a 4" Rough Country lift on it.Anyone have any idea what an estimate for labor would run to have it installed around South Plainfield, New Jersey?Also would appreciate names/websites of any 4x4 shops in the area. The current tires are P27565R18's...what's the biggest tire I can get on the current rims?Thx for any and all responses

My guess is around 6-7 hour install time for the lift so at $80 an hour you're look at around $480-$560. Not sure of any shops in the area as I'm from the west coast. Hopefully someone will chime in for you on that.

As far as tires go with the 4" lift you'll clear 35x12.5's no problem but I believe you'll need 1/4" spacers if you're using the stock rims.

I don't believe the rims are stock although I don't know for sure, are you saying that 35's will fit stock rims?

You could post a picture of the rims. We'll let you know pretty quick.

Yes, you can fit 35x12.5's on stock rims no problem. You just need 1/4" spacers to avoid rubbing on the UCA.

yeah RCX says 5-6 hours install time. But with an older truck you could probably tack on another hour. So 7 hours at the shop rate of usually $80-90/hr then another 70-90 for an alignment.

Can't figure out how to post a pic

Here's a few threads explaining how to do it.

Using photobucket (best way IMO):

Using Ramforumz:

Figured it out...

If you post the IMG code rather than the link it will post the picture directly onto the thread.

Do you have a picture looking back from the front of the truck showing the lower control arm and the CV shaft?

EDIT: A picture like THIS is what I'm talking about.
