Default Anyone with a lifted 4th generation 2500?

Just wondering how many members here with lifted 2010-2012 Ram 2500's. If you do, could you post a pic and tell me what kinda lift you have and give a review on it? Just trying to do some research.

2011 Dodge Ram 2500HD mega cab, TGC 3.5" with 35x12.50 0n 20" Rockstars. The 3.5" lift on a 2500 is still taller than a 1500 with a 6" lift by nearly 2 inches. It rides better than stock. I couldn't imagine doing a 6" lift on a 2500, getting in and out with 3.5 is a job

that truck looks amazing. any thoughts of putting fender flares on it? i think that would make it perfect, but either way great looking truck.

I been looking into the bushwhacker pocket flares or I might go with the more traditional ones that look factory, right now I'm enjoying the no flare look LOL.

Love the truck, Im going to put a medium lift on mine as well. Did Dodge make any changes to the suspensions from 2011 to 2012? Reason Im asking is that the lift kit is for a 2011 and I have a 2012. I think it will work on my 2012. Hope so anyways. Do you have any RUB?

2" mopar level up front, add a leaf in the rear, bilsteins all around. 18" moto metals with 34" terra grapplers. I really want to go with a TGC 3.5" but just cant justify spending the money on an additional inch right now. However I will tell you my truck still handles and rides just as well as stock, but its still not the smoothest ride, which is why I'd love to get those progressive rate coils.

If I could do it all over, I would go 3.5" tgc with the mini leaf rear. however I had to go add a leaf because I haul some heavy loads with my truck
