I have a 2011 ram 1500 4x4. I have had a 4" Rough Country lift setting in my man cave for about a month now.Trying to decide what tires I want!i was thinking the 35x12.5x20 terra grappers for size/mileage.I really like bighorn 4 lifes truck and it has me thinking 37's!what would it take to get my truck to clear the 37x12.5x20's?would the bilsteins do it?would a 2-4" body lift help?I run a machine shop so that might open some ideas on modifying my 4" suspension lift.thanks for the help.

I've been considering the 4" Lift as well. I was thinking about the 6" but with a 6 month old it be easier to get her in and out with only the 4" lift. But im also wondering about the blisstions front and rear just to level the truck until i get the lift but like the Op mentioned can we use the blisstions with the rc lift.

Thank you .

You would need at least a 3" body to get 37's under there without rubbing issues. How much of a rake do you have? Got any pics?

I would sell your 4" lift and get a 6" yes. If you want 37's to clear easy. You should get a 6" lift with the 5" rear and bilstein 5100's to level it out "Like I did". You can still pull trailers too. Or you can get a 6" lift with the 3" rear and it will be level. You can still fit 37's with the 3" rear and no bilsteins so just depends on how high you want to be setting.
