Default Lift Kit Search

I want to get either a 5" or 6" lift kit for my 97 ram 1500 4x4. I was thinking of getting the rough country 5" lift kit for it. Is it worth the money to get it?

It's all in what you want to do . Those big lift kits look nice when done right . But they are alot of work . And alot of money . Are you doing a body lift or a suspension lift ?

Ya i dont recommend body either. Rough country is a good name though. I had a 1997 wrangler and had a 4 inch rough country lift and never had any problems.
