Default Help lifting 2013 2wd

Hello all ,
New to the forum only my 4th post or so, I got my truck last week and I have always wanted a lift on my trucks but never got around to it, So I have been researching lifts for my 2013 ram 2wd, I am a complete newbie so I literally know nothing of lifting a truck.
I found the CST 4" spindle lift, and the CST 7" lift , seems to be one of the few options I have with the 2013 2wd. I also found a 5 inch lift on autoanything, it says its guaranteed to fit, but i found the same kit on a few other sites and it says it will not fit the 2013, so I am a little worried if it will work. I did a live chat on the site with a representative and they guaranteed it will fit as well so i Guess i should not worry. Here is the kit im looking at its the 5" not the 3"

http://www.autoanything.com/suspensi...A3002A0A0.aspx


Any one out there who has lifted there 2013 2wd ? what kit do you have on? . What would you all recommend as the easiest option, not looking to break the bank or jack it up super high just want to get some bigger tires on and a little more height than just a level kit...Also if I get this kit or the CST ones what else do I need as far as gap guards etc.....Any advice would be appreciated thanks!

The 5" lift should fit. I would recommend going with the cst 7" lift though. Most people prefer using a suspension lift vs a body lift. These trucks hide the body lifts pretty well, but if you go that route you will have to get a S bend in your exhaust to raise your tips. If you have a hitch it will be sitting 3 inches lower and when you open your hood, the engine will be sitting 3" lower. That being said many people have body lifts here and are happy, but I would say most people would say go suspension lift.

There are a few people who run the 7" cst maybe they will chime in.
Here is a link to a truck with the 7"

Also if you search around on YouTube there is a really nice white one on there running the 7". He's also on the forum, but you have to search for his threads.
