Everyone is different in what they want. I could live with 355 and my 37s but it drove me crazy after awhile. So it's all up to your expectations. I like to cruise in my trucks towering over others. Some guys wanna spin the tires. We are all different. I just couldn't do the look of 35s

Im running 37's with 355's currently and theres a noticeable lag from dead stop but the truck still has plenty of power and feels fine under normal driving and acceleration. I do also have a tuner and exhaust done so that helps. Gears will be in the future

Lucky you. I had no tuner to even try when I lifted and did 37's. I had an exhaust, but it did not help (I knew it would not) gears was my only option and don't regret it.
Truck pulls hard now on 37's

what gears did you go to? how did they effect MPG?

how much $$$$ did the re-gearing cost?

I re - geared to 4.56 back in August 2012. MPG did improve as my truck was no longer struggling. I avg 13-14 MPG city and 15-16 MPG on the freeway.
Pretty Damn good IMO
When I had 37 and 3.55 is was sub 9 MPG.
Power was GONE!

When I can't take my wifes car anymore off the line, I had issues. LOL
Im no way a drag racing or speed junkie, but I do like my power when I need and want it

That is one mod I do not regret doing. It ain't cheap, but totally worth it

I ran on 35's last winter and my truck was FUN to drive in the city.
Not so good on the freeway as it revved high.

4.56 and 37's is probably the best pairing for fun and MPG
3.92 and 35's will be similar to my setup

Hey Fast, any update on the 5100's being available anytime soon? I ordered them from Bully's about two weeks ago and I'm waiting on those before I put my lift on. I'm going with the 6" RC lift, 35x12.5x18 Nitto Trail Grappler M/T's on MKW M88's.

Would it be wise to throw 1.5" rear coil spacers in with the lift to offset the maxed out bilstein's? Not sure if anyone is running those or not. Just wondering how the ride is.

Thanks

Bilsteins are still on a nationwide back order.
We have a few others waiting as well :/

Personally, if you'll be running 35's, I would not max the Bilsteins and throw the 1.5 rear coil spacer on. Simply because the 35's will look extremely small
What I'd do is set the Bilsteins at 0.7 for slight rake or 1.4 for near levelness.
Unless you like tires looking small

Default Wisdom needed

I have a 2011 Ram 1500 I'm about to have fun with! Although trying to make the best call for balance on MPG. + not have to get into a lot of major modifications. I'd like to go RCX 6 inch. But scared to run over 35 x 12.50 20. Can I get away with 35's on a 6 inch lift? Or will the tires look to small? I drive 28k miles a year. All hwy.....
