Great looking truck!

You might as well figure in some UCA's in the near future. Upper ball joints are going left and right on leveled 13's and 14's these days, including both of mine.

I understand completely.

A couple of days ago, I dropped my 1500 and the dealer for some warranty work and hit up my salesman. We took a 2500 6.4L out for a spin and it rode like a tank. I knew...

I am in the same boat, with a travel trailer, two kids and two 100lb dogs. I drove a '14 2500 with the 6.4L Hemi last night. It was essentially the same truck I have but a 2500 (Crew Cab, 4wd, V8,...

When off-roading in the Rocky Mountains for a week this summer, I tested out both my "AWD" and "4HI" settings. Maybe, just maybe, when in AWD, there was a fraction of a second delay in the front...

On my 2013, both ball joints are coming loose with 17k miles on my kit but dealer is covering it under warranty.

Just figure in aftermarket control arms in your budget or keep a close eye on them.

Has this ball joing "popped" (Pic) ?

With all of this talk about ball joints popping on 13-14 RAM's with leveling kits, I took a look at mine. I have 18k miles on a 2.5" spacer kit.

I assume that this is what everyone is talking...

Mine does NOT do this. It does work normally and the recycle default is to the OFF position. I have to turn it on with the button for it to activate.

For a shop, with a lift and air tools, it is a 1 hour job to install the spacers and then extra for an alignment. So, the $200 - $300 range is probably about right.

It took me 1 1/2" hours in...

I have 305/55 20's on my stock wheels (basically a tad larger than a 33x12.5) with a 2.5" lift. In my opinion they are the perfect size for a balance between height, width and simplicity. I am not...

Yup, easy to do in the garage on a Saturday. The rear spacers take more time to jack up the truck and get the tires off than it does to install them.

I have the same kit with 33x12.5's. I have done the measuring and 35x12.5's on my stock 20's should fit. Just in case, I have a pair of 1/4" spacers for the front but doubt I will need them.
