Default Lifting the 2001 Ram...which lift?

I'm thinking about going 3-4" lift on my 01 Ram...not sure which company to use since i've heard lifting this particular truck past a certain point requires you to change a lot of components...i dont want to do a spacer lift i'd prefer the coil spring set up...anyone have a suggestion for a complete lift kit?

Thanks

Top Gun Customz specializes in lifts for solid axle trucks like ours. They can assemble a complete kit for you (part by part) with many options. I would give them a call.

Ya I can't go that low on a BDS kit for you bro.I can pull strings but 600.00 is really low for a suspension lift.

Well you could do Bilstein 1500 series struts which will lift your nose 2.5".Then if you want more lift you can get a 3" body and you will have a nice lifted truck cheap.

struts around 200.00
3" body around 400.00

There is your 600.00 lift and you could put 35" tires on her.Minus the cost for install.

He has a solid front axle truck so the struts won't net him any lift or work.

You could hit up top gun customz for a 3" lift with coils and shocks. You can upgrade the shocks to bilsteins and still be around $600 Here is a link:
http://www.topguncustomz.com/Store/G...iview=25474016

You might be able to squeeze 35's under there depending on your wheel and tire combo
