Arrow Need some help with Upgrades.

So...

I got a 2012 1500 Laramie and I am having problems finding the parts I want for this lift.

At first im thinking of getting the Rough Countries 6in lift kit with kicker braces add on for support.

I can't find dual steering shock kit or equipment for 1500's anywhere. or track bars or sway bars.

I'm going with the 6in because I want to put some 37 under it. not sure if the 5 inch on the rear would change the the driveshaft to much? anyone know?

and on a side note... I've been reading a lot about the catch can is there a reason why this is an needed upgrade. and before I spend the 600 bucks which computer is better Bully Dog or Diablo?

Thanks all for the time

Catch can keeps oily, gunk-filled air which gets recirculated into the engine for combustion, OUT of the engine by trapping it instead. It can be a significant amount of nasty gunk. The crap can lower the octane of your fuel which is why its a good idea when running an aggressive tune.

As for tuners, BD canned tunes (included with the tuner) are stronger than DS< but only the DS (either Trinity or Intune DCX) can support custom tunes which nothing can touch because they're made specifically for YOUR truck, noty an "off the shelf Ram".

I'm about to trade my 2012 1500 4X4 in for a new diesel. Need it for towing trailer. I'm pulling some of my mods off the truck to trade in. I have the Airaid CAI and the diablo sport trinity from Hemifever and would let Them go cheap. Let me know if you're interested. The CAI has an extra filter and a pre filter.

For the stabilizer, just get 2 singles and run one on each side.
For the tuner, use diablo.
Bully dog moved into the gasser market for a reason. No one wanted them anymore in the diesels.
