Default tell me what you think of this setup

I've got a 2011 ram laramie. I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on a lift. I came up with the idea of running bilstein 5100's up front set at 2.8" and 1" spacers out back. Then running a 3" body lift from performance accessories. As far as wheels and tires I was thinking 35x12.50 on the stock laramie wheels for now with some 1/4" spacers. I think that it might not be a bad way to get almost 6" of lift for around $600. Plus I'm always setup to go with more lift. Let me know what you think. Thanks Brian

I've had 3 trucks with PA body lifts and have always been a body lift fan. However, some trucks look better with body lifts than others. GM 3/4 tons for example have a ton of visable frame that looks even worse with a body lift.
