I have a 1999 Ram 1500 4X4 and am about to start modding. You can see what I've started planning on at this link:
I have my Ram Sport body conversion parts list done.
I am now researching 5" lift kits for the truck. So far, I've researched FabTech, Rough Country, SuperLift & SkyJacker kits.
I have no idea what I am doing here.
I've never lifted a truck before except my K5 Blazer which was just a 2" block lift.
None of the basic kits have everything I need but they do have options so I have been able to figure out what's to be added to basically compare apples to apples as far as kit contents and pricing.
What I haven't been able to determine is quality.
I don't want to create an extreme rock crawler or mudder. This truck will see mostly on-road duty, will be off-road from time to time but nothing extreme. The seasonal snow storm and some mud from time to time is as nasty as it will get.
Yeah, I know I'll need to re-gear and I'll have to figure out my powertrain/computer issues but that's Phase 2.
So, any comments or experience with any or all of these manufacturers will be welcomed.
Thanks in advance, folks.
