3" body lift and install it yourself. Rough Country also makes a 1.25" body lift. It takes maybe 3hrs in your driveway with hand tools

this might be/is a dumb question but how do you show your mods below each post?
go to "quick links" at the top of the page beside "unanswered threads" underneath your name, click on it, a frop down menu will come, and click edit signature, I think until you have a certain amount of posts your signature can only be so long, but it will tell u if it is too long when you try to save it

Will a body lift void warranty?

I was told a BL is fine by my dealer, shouldn't void the warranty. However, I have heard some dealers are more strict than others...

I have a 2010 ram 1500 levelling kit (2.5 front and 1.5 rear) with bilstein 5100 set to max in the front. Toyo open country MT tires all around. Truck sits perfectly level and I have no problems with binding or brake lines or anything. Sorry about the image, can't figure it out!
