I am with sul7. Cst is an awesome, good quality lift kit. I have there 7" kit and I love it
But if your not looking to go that high the 4" lift spindle is a great option and with minor trimming could accommodate 35" tires.

A I saw the spindles on their website last night. They said they were like over $800. I found them on another site for about $500. And I think I'm going to go with 33in Terra grapplers. Anyone know how much they are to wrap a 20in rim? My Internet is down at the house so I can't check.

I have a 2000 dodge ram 2WD V6 With a 2" Rough Country lift in the front and in the back i have a 2" add-a-leaf they call it and a 1.5 inch pro comp lift Block...and ProComp ES3000 Shocks..the reason why its so high in the back is because the front was higher..and I wasnt a big fan of that so I bought a lift block......but i got 265/75/R16 FireStone Destination Tires And I put them next to 33" BF GoodWrench All Trails and My tires are slightly bigger...and I have Alot more room for BIGGER tires... IDK if the photo posted...IM new to this form so i gotta get the hang of it LOL..Sorry

Yea. I think the 4in spindle lift and a 1 or 1.5 in block in the back would make my truck look really good. I want to go with 33s all around so it dosent look to much like a mud truck. Does anyone know of another company that makes 3 or 4 in spindle lifts for a 05 ram 1500?

I don't know anything about the dunes, but I do know that I lifted my 2wd truck 3" and love it. I'll consider a body lift as well once I need tires, but that's a long way off. Spindles, shackles, and an alignment is all you need.

Txhemi, what size tires do you have on your truck? And what brand? Also do you have any pics of it you could send me to look at it?

Right now I have the stock tires (275/60 I think) on my stock 20"s. The spindles are Rough Country. These are the only decent pics I have right now. Waiting for a string of good weather to give the HEMI a bath and a photoshoot.
