Default 2005 dodge sits higher than most trucks?

Hi!

Finally bought my pickup truck! A nice Ram 1500 Laramie Quad cab 2005! Really love it so far!

Is it an illusion or every Chevy, F150 and even newer dodge 1500 I met all sits much lower than my 2005?

Tires are stock 265-65r-17 and suspension is all stock.

Anyway, I love driving higher than everyone else (except semi trucks)

the GM trucks and 4th gen Rams definitely sit lower in the front. not sure about F150's. what little i've looked at them they all look to sit pretty high. they look equivalent to the 3rd gen Rams.

Yeah Chevy's always have sat a lot lower. Fords arent too bad but Dodge's have always sat the highest. Also, you can cram 35s in a Dodge or Ford with just a level where the Chevy's can only fit 33s with a level.

The new Dodge's though have a lot of rake on them compared to older ones

3rd Gen Rams definitely do sit pretty high. My 2007 1500 just about dwarfs my step dads 2012 Chevy 1500. And my buddy has a 02 Ram 2500 that is equivalent in size to my 07 1500. So the 3rd gen Rams certainly do sit high up. And that is most definitely not a bad thing.

Not necessarily. Both suspension ads nearly stock.
