Default Procomp 3 inch Lift 97 Ram 1500 done yesterday

Hey all! 4X4 Parts was running deal on Procomp 3inch lift 519(plus tax)w/free install. Here are some pics of it, new break lights. I plan on doing it with black accents & have a black grill & smoked headlights already on the way. I am looking at aggressive 33's & watching craigslist My toolbox I will paint when have time and can fully focus on it. Next year truck paint (after winter) and thinking about changing gray on the bottom black. I almost went with 6in lift (2000$), but guy said with Rams natural stance 3inch would look good too.Next is 33's!

I will get some pics of underside when have time. Not bad for a 2300$ truck wit 12k on the engine.

Update!

Okay, I did the 3inch Procomp Lift yesterday so got the itch & got some Cooper Mudclaw 315/75/16 put on today. It was a toss up with 33s, but guy said would fit with rub at full hard turn (uturn) and he was right. I have driven all day and no problems. I may have turning radius tweaked, but honestly I have not rubbed it does not exactly turn on a dime before hand. They are on stocks, I am thinking about just poweder coating these. These were huge compared to the 33's also and very meaty.

Oh yeah, bumpers are dinged up so either replace or go with a custom ones. A lot of things I want to do, but stay in budget also going to have a sprayed bedliner done. I can do shocks struts/shocks done on all my cars, but with free install, I let them deal with it.

You should rhino line the grey part of the truck. It will look sweet and you wont have to worry about paint chips or rust ever again!

Check this out! 315/275/16 Cooper Mudclaws bought today, I really like them, I have rub at full hard turn (uturn), but I have not rubbed since. I was told about spacers that bolt in (or something like that which are safer than regular ones) or to tweak turning radius a smidge. I will check, but not an issue to be honest and whoever said rhinoline good idea.

The truck looks good, in fact it reminds me of my first Ram (97)
You probably don't need spacers, what you might consider is longer control arms to recenter your front axle in the fender well,
If your tire is rubbing on only one side, an adjustable track bar or mount will re-center the axle under the frame.
