Default Pre runner suspension help

I'm buying a couple of my workers 2013 1500 scsb trucks. I'm looking for a suspension like a pre runner set up. The trucks won't be jumping hills or anything. Lots of dirt roads that can at times be washed out. So 90% on dirt what company and kits are good?

If it were me, it would be the Ramrunner kit from Mopar! KORE made the Ramrunner kit for Mopar and is IMHO one of the BEST suspension SYSTEMS available! I have used a KORE kit on my last 1 ton and it made it ride BETTER than a stock 1/2 ton!

That's what I was going to go with but I wanted to see if there were kits available. I'm just not sure how well that suspension will hold up with 1,000 pounds of tools stuffed in the bed.

First of all, what kind of business do you run? That sounds like a job I would like. Need an employee??? getting out of the corps soon!

Anyway if I were you i would get a regular ram 1500 slt 5.7 or 4.7 and throw some lift kits on with 35" tires, maybe replace the bumpers with winch bumpers for self recovery. And let me clarify, a good price 6" lift kit is rough country. The only thing with these are they will still have a front rake which isnt good for climbing obstacles, so I would reccomend buying Bilstein 5100 shocks to level the truck out

I maintain all my mom and dads oil wells. So I need something that will last and is built right. I will only go with a hemi ifs it's gas. I'm a big diesel guy and thought about running single cab 2500 but these are just pumping trucks so a 3/4 ton is not really needed. We will beat the crap out of what we get.

I'm not hiring right now but something could always come up. It's in no mans land artesia, nm
