Looks like I've got some thinking to do but I want it running blown already!!!
Talk to a few local dyno tuners and see what they can do. Some need a base to start from and a few select can possibly write you one without it.
That's a question you can lead with

Ya pretty stoked now! Got a really good shop close that said they would love to do it. Build tunes without a base and includes dyne time until it's right. Should have this thing going by beginning of next week if $$$ doesn't stand in the way lol

Been a while since I got any new photos of her. Winter in Wyoming makes the truck so dirty and not in the good way! But Have a few good shots with the new bumper.


And one on a day with better weather right after clearing out a shop and a nice bath.

Default What Lift?

Seeing this is my first ever Ram truck, what lift would y'all recommend? I plan to do a 6" lift and I have had one shop say Procomp, one shop say Fabtech and another say BDS. So, I am turning to Ram world to see what really is the best???
Also, my truck has the 3.21 gears, initailly thinking it'd be better for the hwy MPG, but now i'm second guessing this? Especially if I do 37" tires like I want to. Or will I be ok with the 3.21 gears with the new 8 speed trany?
Thoughts please...

You'll move with 3.21 but not much lol especially with 37s you'll lose mpg too I'd say at least 4.10 but 4.56 would be better also I plan on bds but that's personal opinion

With 3.21 gearing, I wouldn't go any bigger than a 35" tire... you'll be adding enough weight to each corner in tire alone, let alone a larger overall diameter... a 6" lift with 35" tire will look great and shouldn't kill your performance too too much... but yeah, them 3.21 gears... oh lawd

I agree with the ^^
the new 3.21 is very similar to the old 3.55 and 6spd
35's is ok. 37's and your truck becomes an absolute dog and you'll hate your truck

I have a 2013 Hemi with the 3.21 8 speed as well and I went with a 6" lift and 35" tires and I love it. Your gas mileage will definitely drop, mine hovers between 10 and 13 depending upon how heavy my foot is. I agree that 37" tires would be too much for the 3.21 8 speed. As for what brand, I went with ProComp with replacement shocks all the way around and I absolutely love it.
