Default Rough Country 2.5" level plus 1.25" Body Lift

I have a 2013 Ram Sport CC 6'4 bed and was thinking about one of these rough country kits....

Has anyone else used one of these? It seems like its just a lot of spacers to get 3.75 inches. And with the factory cut outs for the exhaust will there be an awkward gap between my pipes and the cut outs?

Also how would this compare to bilsteins all around or added to the body lift?
Any advice and/or insight is much appreciated!

Thanks!

Unfortunately the 1.25" Body lift does not work with the 13's at this point. The level kit will....
SOmething to do with the center block not lining up.
We learnt the hard way......after RCX telling us it could be done, it could not and we had to refund out customer.
That said. the 3" PA does work with your truck or the 1.5" Zone

Let me know if you need any pricing on the RCX level or a body lift

Yes, our contact told me the same thing, till I called him back and said WTF....we have an upset customer with his truck in pieces and it doesn't work.
Luckily he started in the front first....otherwise this would have been worse.

What do you want to achieve?

If you want to add a body lift on top, you will need either the 1.5" Zone or 3" PA body lift.

Fast- the pa 3'' looks to be the best bet. Will this work with bilsteins? And no problems with the exhaust like i have heard about with other body lifts?

Thanks for the help!

Yes sir. It will work perfect and I ran it at one point on my truck. But MANY here run just Bilsteins and 3" PA to get a 5" lift which is equivalent to a 6" lift.

You will have to have the exhaust adjusted upwards and may want some gap guards for the front ($60) but other than that, the Ram hides the bodylift very well....

Let me know if interested, I can get all of these for you.

Hey Andrew, Would you be able to PM me a price on the 3" Body Lift with Gap Guards???
Never really considered this route....I haven't seen any of the new rams with a 3" body lift in person....I've seen other trucks and never really liked them because they show so much frame.
But it is a really good alternative to keep all of the suspension intact.

I will have to start looking for pics now...
