fastNugly, what kind of mpg did you get with the 355s on the highway? I am about to get 35s possibly 37s and a 6" and want to know how my 355s will handle.

Well....this is a loaded question for the simple reason is I have seen others get better than me simply because of where they live.
I live close to the city and as you can imagine there is lots of traffic and red lights. so my MPG wont be as good.

That said, I use to get 15-16 MPG when I was stock.
I dropped down to 11-13MPG depending on all the variables above.

But I do have a friend who lives 3 hours north with minimal traffic and longer lengths to drive before hitting a red and he gets 15MPG on 37's with 355s

So its hard to answer.

I would say expect between 10-14 MPG on 37's and 11-15 on 35's

This might be a little off topic but it is still a lift question does anyone know what the max lift you can have and still keep the warranty?

Hard to answer.
Some dealers will not honor any lifts and some, like my dealer honors my 11" lift.
So it will vary from dealer to dealer
I suggest asking your dealer first

to a degree I'll have to second FastNugly. I work for a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram dealership. I am one of the managers.. So my service department said not to worry about it.

However, the way it works is, if the lift can be considered a reason for the failure of a part then it will not be under warranty. Sooo technically a service adviser can say the motor, diff, or tranny was affected due to the extra strain caused by the oversize tires. Interior would be safe. Anything the lift replaces or modifies such as struts will be out of warranty. Brakes are of course up for discernment of the Service Tech since they could be blamed on tire size.

My advice is to first find a dealership who lifts Rams new, because they warranty those trucks. We sell brand new Rams with 6" lifts on 35s, and they are all under warranty. Secondly, build a relationship with your service adviser. May sound silly but a lot of warranties can be up to the discernment of the adviser.

Here is the only kicker, on warranty work Chrysler can always request pictures of the vehicle in question, the parts, and angles. Also, they can and have sent their personal reps down to check and make sure. Usually this is on interior or major major failures, my adviser was not worried about it. But a Chrysler Rep could easily say No.

Service advisers hate warranty work, they don't make near as much money and work just as hard. For instance, a blown diff may take 4 hours labor, but if its under warranty Chrysler may say it is a 1 hour job and will only pay a 1 hour labor charge. So once again, build a relationship.

The only thing I can say is, It pays to play. I hate that saying, but it is true. We are technically modifying these vehicles past their intended uses, so regardless of what Chrysler says or what was the cause of the failure, we have modified them and they can legally say no to a warranty.

Best of luck.

by the way, my dealer was more open to me doing a six inch rather then a leveling kit, due to angles.. So mine was happy with the route i am going. Also, call a couple dealers within an hour or two of you and ask them all if they will honor a lift. Maybe you can find one that says yes and not even have to worry about it.

Thanks for the tips. I'll start checking around, the dealer I bought the truck from said 3 max but I knew that couldn't be 100% right.
