So I'm pretty much ready to order up my next mod for my truck. But an idea has crossed my mind and I'm looking for your opinions.

Here's what I have planned at the moment:

2.5" TGC progressive rate leveling springs
Bilstein 5100 shocks
BD Diesel Adjustable track bar

Now all that stuff is going to run me about $680. Definitely a little higher than I was planning to spend just to level it but I don't want to skimp out and half ass shit since it will be staying this way for a couple years plus the adjustable track bar (which is half the cost) will be used once I fully lift it as well.

Now this idea popped into my head today.... Rough Country 5" lift. I haven't worked out the pricing through Bully's yet, but online they have one kit listed for $699 and one (step up with adjustable control arms) for $899. So that has almost got me thinking to do a 5" lift for now rather than just leveling.

Pros:
More lift - bigger bang for your buck
Could run 37's right away if I wanted
Looks bad ass!

Cons:
Not as good of quality as the TGC, Bilstein, BD set up
Running stock tires with a 5" lift for a few months is going to look stupid
Still need to buy an adjustable track bar when I lift the truck in the future

So fellow Ram owners, what are your thoughts on this. I'm open to any and all advice/opinions.
