Couple Rough Country 4" Lift Questions
 
I have a 07 Ram with 295/70/17's on stock 17's and I've been eyeing the 4" Lift they have and was wondering if anyone else has it? In my Search I found everyone that has a RC lift has the 6" except I believe Ruffian has the 5" but I was looking at the Bilstein 5100's to level it for now (front and rear) would I be able to use these still and stash the RC shocks/struts in the closet? As for the wheels would I need spacers? They are the perfect size and don't plan on getting rid of em anytime soon.

To be honest, because of the price difference I would go with the 6" lift because it's about the same price as the 4". I'm can't answer your question though, just wait and someone who knows what they are talking about will get to you.

You're right, but his tires might look too small with a 6" lift.

Exactly why I want the 4" like I said the size tires I have are perfect but want a little more lift without making em look like midget wheels lol. But I did see that there was only a slight price difference between the 4" & 6"

I have to agree and say spend the extra $200 and get yourself the 6" lift. I almost bought myself the 4" lift but then I realized I will regret not doing the 6" for only a couple hundred more.

The good thing is you have 17" rims which would make your tires cheaper to buy. If you had 20s like me it would cost a crap load for tires. It wouldn't be that bad if you had to change the tire size to accomodate the bigger lift.

I have the 5" only because that was the biggest i could get from them for my truck...havent looked into the 06-08 lifts but if they offer a 6" lift i would jump on that being the price is not much different :smileup:

You will be happier in the end doing the 6" as the 4" still makes the 1 ton trucks around the same height and we all want to be the tallest on the road! Also if you ever decide you want bigger tires you can fit em on the 6"

DO the 6" Lift. You are already planning on going higher and it is addicting! I started with a 3" pro comp spacer lift, graduated to a 7" skyjacker and after all was said and done ended up with a 12"-14" custom lift. Get the bilsteins. wear out your tires add the 6" RC lift and new wheels and you'll be able to clear 37's!

Lol sounds like I might be going 6! won't I need a spacer for a 35x12 1/2 on a 17x9 wheel?

SUL7ENAZ 11-09-2010 01:01 PM

Correct. Spacer or bilstein 5100's. I'd go with the bilsteins.

Just get a 6" BDS Lift with the 5" rear kit and get a 1" spacer for the front.It will clear 37x13.50 easy.Trust me I have 37x12.50x20 with a 20x10 -20 offset rim.I can put 37x13.50x20 tires on there and they will clear easy.I will be doing the 13.50's when I need new tires.I can get you the lift pretty cheap.
