I'm going to put the Tru Track in with the 4.56's so I dont have the clutches of a LSD which I dont have now anyway with the open diff. i was quoted right at $2K installed front and back with the front open still and tru trac in the back. If you look under the second coil in that pic there is plenty of thread left on the coilovers.

This is on a 35" tire

Looks good Zeus, you definately need some bigger tires tho...maybe 38s if they'll clear!! I would go wth that DTT in the rear. I have the lsd now and its a Pos. im thinking my clutch packs are wore out so Im buying a brand new lsd forthis install. For the front its ube gay we dont have any lsd or locker options, wtf. Dodge. For your coilovers tho, spinning the nut down to the coils like you have raises the lift right? Sice that would be comprssing the coil ie proving more lift.

Those max out at 7.5", you'd be cuttin it darn darn close with 38s

I went back and looked at your pic Zeus, you do have threads left....sry! Have you even moved them at all or you still at the 6" setting Pro Comps ships them at!

If you have moved them, how easy/hard is it to adjust?

I've never moved them. I want so bad to try the 38's but could be a costly mistake if they wont fit. the toyo 38 is actually 14.3 wide. and it is 8 ply vs. the 10 ply 37 and I pull a fairly heavy boat. Maybe I should just order one tire and see if it fits with the new rims. That is why I like the TT. really no parts to wear out. Just break

What i do know is that 38x13.50 toyo fits on the RCX 6" and maxed bilstiens. It should work on your setup too, we're only and 1"ish taller than the PC and Bilstiens/PC stage 2 lifts.

MuscleMcKeester has 37x13.50 mud graps on his PC and maxed Bilstiens. Those are the same width as those 38" Toyos. Not sure if the lugs are as big on the toyos, but hes about .125" from hitting the knuckle wit 20x10s and a 4.5" bs.

It be really close. Be nice if a shop could test fit them for you.

your making me want to do this more. I guess when I order the wheels I will just order one tire and see if it fits. It seems like for some reason my PC lift sits pretty tall for where the coilovers are set. I bought it lifted already so I have no idea. I just know those tires look tiny on my truck. It will be gears before wheels and tires though. All the reaearch i have done says they will fit. Just barely but they will fit. I hope. Is your 48" measurement front or rear?

I personally think they'd fit AND man would it look sooooo much better!!! Be a completely different truck.

If it's a close fit, just pick up the RCX 1.25" body lift...

Edit..just see the rest of ur post. When i first maxed at the bilstiens the were right at 48"f and 48.5-48.75r. After a month or so of driving the front settle a good .25" lower. Two weeks ago I went to the hobby shop to install my 1.25" bodylift. Well i also dropped my bilstiens to 2.1" (for a less stiff ride). I also swapped out my 1.5" rear spacer for my old .75" rear spacer. Measured afte I got it off the lift snd I'm a solid 47"f and 47.75r. It might settle some. But those measuremnts are also with 20k on my Swampers.

MuscleMcKeester add the 1.25" body lift to his already PC 6" and maxed bilstiens the same weekend I was doing mine. Long story short I didnt get to install my bodylift, maybe next week...hopefully. But he is now the same height I am at 47"f/47.75-48"r.

Whats yours sitting at Zeus?? What about you Silver??

yeah. I have always hated body lifts for some reason though. I measure 43.5" inches front and 45" rear from the ground to center of wheel well.

Sorry for the thread highjack Silver

The Rams do a GREAT job hiding bodylifts. Even the 3" is unoticeable on these trucks. Honestly you'd bever notice the 1.25"bl. Im hopin anyway bc I'm also a big time body lift hater hahahaha

Yeah sorry Silver. We need more pics and some measuremnts already
