Default 2012 1500 6" RC 1.25 RC lift. Will Bilstein 5100's be ok with this setup?

Hello everyone... I have a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Laramie with RC 6" & 1.25" Lift's and I am wondering if there are any issues with installing Bilstein 5100's ?

Thanks

Damien

None what so ever.
RCX, Bilsteins and body lift are very common lifts for most guys who do lift their truck

I have the 6" RCX, Bilsteins set to 2.1 and 3" PA body lift.
Highly recommend the Bilsteins

Got pics of your truck and the way she sits today?

Thanks alot..One other question with the 3" Body Lift did you need to extend the length of your brake lines? with the 1.25 it was pretty tight.

Just a couple of pics.

It comes with all extensions.
3" is different than a 1.25" and requires more things to be extended

They are federal couragia mt 35x12.50x20... for a cheap tire they seem to be holding up to my offroad needs.... 1700 installed with .25" spacers...and they fit no problem with no lift kits to start....

Thanks for info planning on maybe uping it to 3" in the future...but first i have to find a pre 2012 front diff so i can change out the gears to 4.56 or 4.88 if that is possible.... seems everyday more and more people are poping up with it done.

I am one of those or maybe the only one for now
But 4.56 is the max for us 4wd
Either way, it's far better than the 3.55 I had in there

Yea I was hoping that 4.88 would fit I do alottt of city driving... the low end power would save me alot on fuel..but no doubt that the 4.56's will do the trick..you think I/All of us can get a detailed list of the parts that you ordered to get this done ? or maybe just a link to where you have posted it previously ? Part #'s etc ?

Thanks

Im getting those exact tires. How do you like them so far? Have you had them in any mud yet, if so how did they do? And what about the power loss, was it alot going to bigger tires? Also, where is the best place to get the bilsteins from. Thanks guys
