I have a 2010 Ram 1500 Quad Cab Sport 4X4 on the way from the factory and need help/guidance/advice on which lift I should put on it. I want to run 37X12.50R20 on the truck when it is all said and done. The dealer said that on Saturday (January 30, 2010) Mopar came out with a 3 inch suspension lift "that looks like a 4 inch lift" (whatever that means) that will allow for 37X12.5R20 tires. I want to use my factory sport wheels for the lift but I am concerned about backspace issues. Does anyone know if this lift will allow for those size tires on my factory 20 inch wheels without clearance and rubbing problems? Also, I was told if I get the mopar lift and have it installed by the dealer (and pay their rediculous premium) that my warranty will remain valid. I talked to a guy at Trick Trucks and he told me he would recommend a 6-inch lift for those size tires. My concern is if I buy my truck at the dealer then take it over to Trick Trucks I could one day have warranty issues say if my transmission ever had issues, (they could blame it on the oversize tires). Anyone have any experience with this or have any advice as to what to do? I can't find the lift for the 2010 anywhere online. The dealer said they would put the lift on but I would have to go do the tires on my own, (kind of shady and didn't make much sense to me). Also, any idea on what this kit will cost to be installed? I've been told that the 2009 kit is basically the same thing as the 2010 kit so any experience with the 2009 would likely apply to my situation.
Lastly, my motivation for all this was the 2009 Dodge Ram "Big Red" done for the Moab Shoot found here: http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2009/04...t-in-moab.html
With the kit that Mopar is offering would I be able to achieve this same look?
Thank you very much in advance, I know I just asked a ton of questions.
