Current plan for the build is to go with Pure Performance long travel suspension along with Prodigy remote reservoir coilovers, 36 or 37" MT's (still working the details), and fiberglass fenders. I haven't decided on who's front bumper or spare tire carrier to run but will soon.

Factory flares are coming off and will be for sale soon....

I want to add that Andrew at Bullys Performance almost had me convinced on a Zone lift with Fox shox and NOBODY can touch his deals. Thank you Andrew for putting up with me and yes, I will buy from you soon. Great service and great prices...just like everyone says!
Wicked wicked awesome man, she was already damn good looking now im really excited to see how it turns out.

And some people get all the luck with sponsors but serious man congrats

My last build was with a 2011 Jeep JK Black Ops edition and it was used to represent Poison Spyder Customs, Rock Krawler Suspension (same owner as Pure Performance), Northridge4x4, TrailReady Beadlocks and BFG in the Pacific Northwest. I showed the Jeep at all of the offroad events for 2 years and wheeled the crap out of it too. Here's a few pictures of the Jeep.

Yup, that was me....thanks!

Got my Pure Performance kit ordered today. I am going with the 3.0 Triple Threat Long Travel System up front and the Chase Series rear. Now to get my fenders and bumpers ordered....

This is pretty much the setup what I will be getting with the addition of rear upper and lower control arms....



Wheels will be Method Race Wheels NV Beadlocks in matte black with 37x12.50's.

Not a stupid question at all....There is a big difference between the two styles of lift. No disrespect but the "regular" 4" and 6" kits are for looks more than anything else. They basically give you the clearance to run taller tires and look great.

This kit is a long travel kit which is designed to give you more suspension travel as well as keeping the center of gravity lower (3" vs 4 or 6"), yet still allow you to run taller tires. Basically a pre-runner kit that would be suitable for high speed desert/offroad use. With the combination of longer travel suspension and coilovers, the ride is greatly improved as well.

From all the components in there, that lift can't be cheap. But for the performance it gives you, I think it would be worth it. Your Jeep was bad as hell, and from the looks of it, so will your Ram. Nicely played.

Thanks for the answers! Thats pretty much what I was thinking, so I'm glad I was on the right track! And I'm sure that costs a pretty penny!

Well, I got some news I wasn't hoping for....the long travel kit is going to be about a month or so out as the 2013's have a different axle from previous years and will have to be custom made. Looks like I may go for a traditional lift for now so I can run the new wheels and tires....decisions, decisions.

Yup! Front end was definitely changed in '13
Do you go crawling, mudding or sand dunes? Or all the above?

The traditional lift kits are not as bad as you think.
The BDS kit is fantastic especially with the addition of the fox coilover.
