candy08, im looking into the 6" rcx for my 07 ram and thinking of getting the bilstein 5100's for the front while i have everything tore apart...do you have any idea how much of a rake you would have after the lift was install with the stock struts or the 5100's in the stock location? i talked to rcx and they swore the truck would sit perfectly level after the lift was install but im seeing alot of people on here still have somewhat of a rake...i was thinking maybe to set the 5100's on the .7" setting...any ideas?

every truck is a little different .7 is still going to give you a little rake. i think 1.4 will be dead level for most applications... id stay with .7 tho you dont want that to sag when you thro something in the bed

Yes. They have 5 height settings. 0, 0.7", 1.4" 2.1" and 2.8". Depending on your application or how much lift you want can set them at any of those heights.

1.4 setting will level your truck if you don't use a rear coil spacer.
Otherwise 2.1" and. 1" rear will be level and 1.5 and 2.75 will be leveled too

Definitely a beautiful truck. The white body with black wheels is an eye catching combination!

They installedthe RCX 6" lift and bilsteins up front. The owner kept telling me to only go maybe .8" on the struts, but I had him put it at 1.5" and it sits perfect for me. It's .25"-.5" higher in the rear....their measurements anyway. All they have to do is get it aligned, happens at 10 tomorrow mornin. After that I'm gonna clean it and pic whore it out by itself and next to some stock trucks.
I was originally going with this lift, but bighorn4life was hooking me up with BDS. I tried to go that route but have a local bds distributor, so i couldnt get it drop shipped. That added alot of money. The local BDS guys wanted 2350 just for the lift For that price I got my RCX 6", Bestop power boards, Bilstein adj struts and tow hooks all which is installed, shop just did the lift! For you guys that dont have a local bds distribitor, hook up with bighorn. He's a great guy and tried everything he could to hook me up.
The mods are the RCX 6" (plus an extra 3/4 on the rear) bilsteins at 1.5", Fuel Hostage 20x10 -24mm offset (4.5bs) and 37x12.50x20 Super Swamprr SSRs

***When you say "RCX 6" (plus an extra 3/4 on the rear)," what is the extra 3/4 on the rear? Is this a spacer? If so, what kind? Thanks for the help. I just purchased my 2015 Ram, coming from a heavily modded '14 Wrangler, and absolutely cant wait to start making it mine!I really like your lift, so I just want to make sure I know where to go and how much it will all cost. Thanks for all the help!!
