Default Biggest lift possible without getting crazy?

Hey all,

I want to lift my 2015 1500 in the near future and have been looking at all the different options. I use my ram for everyday driving, with camping/hunting when in season. Some four wheeling but nothing major. I will be leveling with Bilstein 5100s this week and would add the lift on top of that hopefully within a few months. I would like as much lift as possible without losing handling integrity, and still maintaining a good ride experience. I also need something that isn't unrealistic for a short wife and small kids to be able to get in and out of. I was thinking a 5-6" Zone lift, would that fit the bill? I know this is a subjective question, and different for everyone, just looking for some opinions from those that have lifted rams.

Zone 6" lift with 5" rear coils and set your Bilsteins to 2.1" to level it out. It will ride better than stock and be a very good setup overall. I'd recommend upgrading to Fox 2.0 or Bilstein shocks for the rear as well just to finish off everything nicely. You won't have any issues with handling or integrity.

I'm gonna run that lift, but plan on leaving my bilsteins maxed. Plan on getting a boondock bumper which I'm sure will pull the front down a little. I had a full 3" rake when it was stock.

Awesome. Do you have a picture handy of what that would look like? Possibly on stock 2015 wheels/tires? I might want to upgrade tires too.

Also thanks for the info. I've heard zone or bds is the way to go.
