Rough country is the way to go for a lift. A lot of members here are running them.

I agree. The Rough Country kits are a great value. They also appear to be very popular among Ram owners.

So i decided im going with 6in Rough Country lift with Billistens up front 20x10 Fuel Hostage rims and 37x12.5 20's i just havent decided on the tires yet

What kind of offset and backspacing would i need for this setup to prevent from rubbing?

With a 20x10 wheel you'll need at least a -12 offset. But you could go -24 if you want them to stick out even further.

Fast might be able to fill you in on this but if you decide to go with the nitto trail grapplers in a 37 they are on back order. Toyo mts are very nice too

The toyos only come in a 13.50 wide. Also may consider an AT depending on your axle ratio. It's pretty involved to change the gearing for the 2012's. Hit up the guys at discount performance auto. They all are heavy ram modders as well as distributors.
Fastnugly was one of the first 2012's I had seen that went through the painstaking or wallet emptying gear swap.

I'm gonna run the terr graps in a 36.77x14x18 to save some weight. Not a lot but that set up will still weigh less than my stock rims and my 35" toyo MT
