Yuck to spacers!
I did the 4 inch RC lift, and have never regretted it. It's solid, the truck still drives great, sits level, etc. I ditched the stock rims when I got my 35s, it wasn't cheap, but so...

Welcome! My truck hit 3,000 miles and I'm changing the oil to synthetic. I see it as an investment in the truck lasting, and could never wait the 8,000 they say. Make sure you put pictures up when...

I only get 12 mpg on my 2012 Ram Crew.

Of course, I'm also on a 4 inch lift with 35s - so I don't complain much.

I average 11.8 going down the local highway or around town. But on the...

I've got a 4" Rough Country on mine. I've only got about 1,000 miles on it so far, but haven't had any problems at all. Part of me wishes I'd gone with 6" for the look, but 4" gives me all the room I...

Nice job! I was worried at first that it was too quiet also. After 2,000 miles, it really sounds great!

It's true - I decided on the 4 inch lift after checking out some guys who did the leveling kit. I knew I wouldn't be happy with just raising the front end a couple inches. And as soon as I put my 35s...

There are a lot of guys on here who will tell you that just doing the leveling kit will allow you to fit 35s, but you may well have some rubbing issues at full turn. I have a buddy who tried, and he...

It's the tires that kill the mileage, not the lift. I put a 4 inch lift on mine to make room for 35s. I drove it for a couple days with just the lift and the mileage was unchanged. But once you put...

So I hit 2,000 miles on my truck today and realized I should at least START thinking about changing the oil. I'm curious if most of you guys are sticking with synthetic oil or going with the ol...

I can tell you that in 1,000 miles with the cai, my mileage went down between 1-2 mpg, mostly noticeable at around 65 mph when I was pulling 19, now 17.3 on long hauls. No power gain I can feel, a...

Angry I think my CAI is junk

Installed a Volant CAI on my 2012 BigHorn at around 200 miles. The first 1,000 miles, I noticed that my mileage actually dropped and I was lucky to pull 17 MPG going down the interestate. Those first...

Leveling kits are cheap, get one to be safe and your truck will look better. If you ever plan to lift you should think about a different wheel though.

So I've got the 4 inch lift on my '12 Big Horn. Got the aftermarket 20's with the 35" Terragrapplers. Now, I believe my speedo is off a bit, does anyone know how much and how I can fix that?

Lift or not to lift
