Default Lifting Options for 2007 Ram 1500

So I have had the truck for 7 months now and I already have the mind set that the 3" body lift isn't high enough haha. Ive seen some lift kits online but im not sure what to do. i want to upgrade to 35's or 37's. personally to me it looks like the front is lower than the back. what kind of combination lift should i do to make it all equal? What other front suspension parts will probably be more stressed from the lift and wear out pre maturely, so I can just do it right and replace them all at once. Thanks alot I am anxious to hear some responses!

Lift combo you should measure from the center of the wheel to the fender the difference will tell you what you need to level
With a 4" lift and 3" body you could fit 37s
You really shouldn't have any parts wear out per maturely if you get a lift kit and have it aligned

Have you decided what to do? I did a 2.5 front level kit but now I might do a lift.

Just bought a Hell Bent Steel 2.5" Leveling Kit for my ram... hopefully it'll work out nice for me! I paid $75 Free shipping.
