If its all 3rd gen what the difference?
If 3rd gen is 3rd gen then whats the big difference and why cant an 05-06 ram1500 lift kit fit my 07 1500?

i've been trying to build my ram for the past few months now and i've gotten everything together and the next step is a lift kit, the thing is i want to run 35's on 20 inch rims but i dont want a 6 inch lift, ideal lift is 4inch, which is made just for the 05-06 model, so i guess my main question is why that cant work on my truck if they are both 3rd gen rams and a year apart, did that much really change?

anybody at all know why an 06 lift wouldnt fit on my 07 ram...? anybody.....

I have the same question as you do. I don't know why an 05-06 wouldn't fit an 07. Who's tellin ya this?

Doesn't sound right to me. I was under the impression that the lift kits would be interchangeable as long as they are 3rd gens.

well rough country has a lift kit for the 02-05 and when i emailed them and said well since 3rd gen goes from 02-08 can I buy this kit and they told me no it wasnt interchangeable. Does anyone have a truck thats a different year, than the lift kit specified but same gen?

alright just got off the phone with rough country after spending some time with them checking and double checking and then tripple checking that indeed it does not matter if the kit says 02-05, if its for the 3rd gen then it fits regardless of what the year on the kit says. thanks guys

Glad they finally confirmed the right answer. I've been trying to figure out their reasoning for why it wouldn't fit, but couldn't find anything to back that up. Now we know why lol.

I thought some 3rd gens had torsion bars and others just had a IFS? I dont know much about 3rd gen 1500s though

As far as I know all of the IFS have torsion bars? I could be wrong. I have an 03 and its IFS and it has torsion bars.
