Default New 2012 Mega Cab Cummings - Best 6" Lift & Wheel Combo ? ? Please Help

Whats up y'all

I need some advice....

I just bought a new 2012 Ram 2500 Cummins and need some opinions on lift kits and wheel combos.

I want to go 6" and heard that Carli makes a damn good lift. Any of you rocking Carli or have other suggections?

When I throw the 6" on I am going to need new wheels, but here is the deal im on-road 99% of the time so I do not want Huge Nobbies. Anyone know of a good wheel & tire combo that would look good with a 6" and ride smooth on road, without sacrificing size??

I would appreciate any help you can provide.
Thanks
Sean

carli is definitely a good place for a lift. pretty pricey though too. lots of people here run rough country, which is what i would run if and when i decide to get a 2500 mega.

Rough Country Aye? I will have to look into that.

What wheel tire combo would you reccomend for a daily driver? Looking for 35s or better.

Thanks

For a daily driver you may want to max out at 35's....anything larger and your mileage will definetly change fo rthe worse.

But then again you have not shared what distance you would potentially drive daily.

Id get some 35" Nitto Trails! They still have the aggressive look with a smoother ride. I actually think they look a lot better than the MT's. I want a 2500 so bad! Put some pics on when ur done!
