"...for it to look the same"

I saw this on my other 4x4. The window lines, and curves on the body gave the illusion of a slight nose down attitude, but it was level.

Almost the inverse.

At the end of the day you have to be able to stand back, crack a cold one, and be grinning ear to ear because your truck just 'feels right' down in your bones, and not because math tries to dictate so. Our perceptions are the best measuring tapes on the market

As an example... I'll use my truck
I have 6" RCX (which is 1/2" taller up front from the BDS) and Bilsteins at 1.4"
On 35's my truck at its highest point (sat antenna) was 82.5"
I'm now back on 37's and it's an inch taller at 83.5"

Going with BDS will be a 1/2" less estimate and these numbers are based off an avg front fender height of 36.5" and rear of 39.25"

Hope this helps.

I'll PM you my Canadian supplier I went through. Good, solid guy that I've deal with for 2 decades here.


Cheers!
Would you mind passing on that canadian supplier again Im from vancouver and have a 2013 ram sport and looking to lift it 6"
