Default 2013 1500 Crew Cab 4" BDS lift

An FYI for anybody looking at the BDS 4" kit, this is it with the 2" rear coil spacer installed, I was hoping it would be at least level but it isn't. I have the 3" coils coming for it, I'll post pics once they're in. The plus side is that the truck rides and steers like stock, I couldn't be happier in that regard. The stock wheels and tires fit with sufficient clearance but there's no chance of putting a wider tire on the stock wheels. I have some 34.2" tall 275 65R20 Cooper AT3's and 20x8.5" KMC Skitch wheels for it that came off my 2011 Ram 1500, they'll help fill in the wheelwells a bit.

looks good bud. You can put wider tires on if you get a 1/4" spacer. or buy aftermarket wheels with a negative offset.

looks really good!

That's after the alignment and having been driven a few days. Seeing as how it re-uses the stock front and rear springs I can't see it settling any further than it had already.

Very nice looking truck.
It doesn't look a whole lot off especially when comparing the fender gaps.
But it sounds like 3" coil will give you exactly what you want.
Lets see pics once those are on. A before and after
