You're limited to spacers....
But why not just just do the 3" body lift now and add the 7" later when ready?
I know it doesn't level but you get it lifted..
Need pricing I can take care of you and offer member discount prices

Would it be pointless to get a leveling kit if I do a lift down road?

Yea, Bilsteins will not work on a 2wd.
You are left with spacers then as an only option.

Hello all,

I've had my truck for a little over a year now.

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

My original plan was to put Nittos on the stock wheels but when I took my truck to Discount tire to fit on some 295/60r20, they rubbed the upper control arm... Thats when I learned that if you want to put anything wider than a 275 tire on 2012 4x4 Ram 1500s you have to buy new rims with a smaller offset (stock is +19mm). These XD Spy wheels have a -12mm offset.

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

So far I have a 2" level, XD SPY wheels wrapped in 295/70r18 Nittos, and a Leer 700 bed cover. I just ordered some fender flares and will post pics when I put them on. Next month I will add a 4" lift kit and post pics as well.
