Default Photo's Of Your Leveled 4th Gen RAM

Hello All,

I'm looking at installing a front 2" Lift Kit on my 2011 RAM Outdoorsman to level the truck out. I would appreciate photo's from anyone who's done just this front lift on their 4th Gen. truck as well as any feedback on the move (gas mileage affects, etc.). My dealership told me that this would not void the Suspension Warranty but that they would do a front end alignment as part of the install.


Thanks!

I did a 2.5 inch lift. Didn't affect the ride at all. Leveled out nicely!

I thought a 2" lift [not 2.5"] levelled out these perfectly?

Why does your front sit higher?

I llike the levelled stance. Have you had any issues with this Levelling such as vibration, etc.? I am assuming you had a wheel alignment done afterwards as well.

Thanks!

Looks good man.



It's so weird, some guys can put a 2 inch level on and it looks level...and then someone different runs a 2.5 and it looks level. Lol
