Default Official 2009+ TRX4/Outdoorsman Lift/Level Thread

I know there are all kinds of threads on lifts/levels, but with the different suspensions on the TRX4s (which from what I gather are now the Outdoorsmans, if the suspension is still exactly the same?), I thought maybe we could try to get a thread going on lifts or leveling kits people have used on the TRX4s just to give anyone that is looking into doing something like this with their TRX4 ideas and helpful info.

If it's a bad idea, then I apologize. It's just been a pain trying to compare reviews on lifts and leveling options for JUST the TRX4 since it has different suspension than the rest of the RAMs. Everyone starts coming in talking about what's on their Sport or Laramie, and it ends up not helping with the TRX4s...not sounding bitchy, it just makes a lot to read through to try to find info for the TRX4.

So maybe anyone that has modified their suspension could add to this thread, we could get a good list going, and see which kits have been reliable, which have caused issues, what wheel and tire setups work best, etc... Maybe add a pic to show the stance with the lift...again, JUST FOR THE TRX4.

Maybe something simple for reference, like the following:

Truck Year
Lift/Level Used
Wheel/Tire Size
Miles driven since installed
Problems/Issues/Comments, etc...


Example (I don't have this set up, just making an example):
2010 TRX4 1500 Crew Cab
Chrysler 4" Lift
35" Goodyear Wrangler MTs
12,000 Miles driven since installed
No issues, ride quality is same as stock, no fitment issues with tire size.

I think this post in a good idea. This is exactly what I was searching for now. I am considering getting a used Cummins and my wife will be getting my 2012 Outdoorsman. I would like to lift the Outdoorsman (1500). I am thinking a 4" lift. Wife is short so i will have to get nerf bars or the auto steps as well. But what is a good lift kit that will not cost thousands of $$$? She will not be going off road very often and never out to use and abuse the lift. So it will be just for looks really. I currently have the 2.5" leveling kit on the truck but she wants more.

Thanks for any advice
