Default Anyone level their 2012 4WD yet??

For 2012 they have changed the front differential and the way it mounts up soooo maybe that will solve the ol leveling the 4WD 1 n 5 vibration issue, love to hear some feedback cuz this is my first truck ive ever had im going fairly modest with the upgrades on, kinda aiming for sweet n simple

I was going to get mine put in last week but they told me that they still have that issue well they said it was a 50/50 chance that It would get the 4x4 vibration so I held off on getting it installed.... I think im just going to go ahead and do it this week or at least try and see what happens.. if worse comes to worse I will just have them uninstall it. Just wondering what kit were you looking at? I have this one...

Had the dealer level mine before I even signed the papers and put on nitto trail grapplers in 35x12.5x20 on the stock rims. No problems with any vibration other then the tread feel at very slow speed. There is a very slight rub at full lock turning but I almost never turn at full lock so it isn't a problem.

Leveled mine w/ 2" in front, then decided to add 1.75" in the rear to eliminate sag while towing. No vibration issues at all

I put the rough country 2" leveling kit on my 2012 Ram express 4x4 and have zero issues. Truck rides exactly as stock and I love it! I got about 2.25" out of it.

Front sits at 39.250 and rear sits at 39.750 now.

I'm glad no one has any issues, I was wondering about this problem myself. Think I'm gonna go ahead and do it.
