Default 2013 Lift Setup, thoughts?

I have a 2013 Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 and have decided to put a mild lift on. I am getting ready to pull the trigger on Bilsteins 5100 fronts (187367) and rears (187374) and a topgun 1" spacer for the rear. I am hoping to run the Bilstein 5100 on the top setting in the front with the 1" spacer in the rear will still give the truck the level look or atleast a rake to the front look. I do not want the front to apear higher than the rear. What are your thoughts on this lift. I will be running 35s with this lift also.

I actually running 35s on just a level kit , maybe that would be good enough for you if you want to keep a more stock look .. And it dont rub anywhere even in very bad off road conditions.. !

I know that you can run 35s with a level kit i was just hoping to go about an 1" or so about level.

Best thing to do is go out and measure your fender heights now. That will tell you how much rake you have and then you can do the math of adding 2.8" to the front and 1" to the rear and figure out your rake afterwards. You'll want to keep at least 0.5-0.75" of rake to make it not appear nose high.

Check out my wheel/tire thread linked in my signature below. At that time I was running a 2.5" leveling kit and a 0.75" rear spacer on 35's. Very similar to what you're thinking...
