are you 2wd or 4wd?

if you are 4wd get bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks. i think you can get them for around $180 a pair and are the preferred way to level over spacers.

If you are on a budget, I've heard good things about hell bent steel (HBS) 2.5" leveling kit for around $80. But i recommend the bilsteins.

Once leveled. You can fit a 35x12.5 tire with a 0mm offset wheel. if you want the "offroad" look, I'd get a -12mm, your wheels will stick out some and looks good, esp with fender flares you want that negative offset.

You could probably sell your pretty new wheels/tires for around $1000 and make up for the wheels/tires purchase which will run you between $1600-upwards of $2000 depending on brand/price of the wheels and tires.

You can get rims that are almost $260/each and tires that are almost $400/each or you can budget and do what i did. I got some cheap offroad black wheels for $125/each and some federal couragia M/T tires for $260/each. The federals aren't very popular, prob cuz of the low price but I love them. if you drop to a 17" diameter tire/wheel you can save a lot of money. i saved almost $1000 dropping from 20-17"

I dont have a 4th gen ram but I have pics of my leveled with bilsteins 2007.
17x8.5" wheels with 35x12.5x17 federals
