Thanks. I'm not really looking for 3" of additional lift since I already have a 4" suspension lift, I think the additional 1" would be perfect (I still need access to the bed and setting the thing too high will be a pain).

I put a 1" lift on my Jeep (on top of a 3.5" short arm kit) and there were no linkage modifications needed for that, I just wonder if the same applies to the Ram.

I don't the install would be any different on your set up versus mine. No linkage mod needed.

One more question I just thought of... If you raise the front bumper with the brackets in the kit, how does that work with the front tow hooks? They appear to fit pretty snugly in the front bumper slots...

Yes, how ever much of a body lift you have that is how far your bumper goes up from your duel exaust.

Yes. With the 1.25" kit it should be fairly easy to raise the hangers on the tailpipes without having the very slight upward angle be noticeable, but I would think if you do a 3" lift on a dual exhaust that is frenched (sp) into the bumper you may need to have some pipes bent...

after reading about the exhaust sitting lower it makes me not want to mess with the body lift anymore lol. Guess Ill stick with a 2.5 front and .75 rear or just save for the 4in lift and do it right the first time.
