Ok guys, I've read through a thousand posts trying to figure out the best route to take. I initially wanted to level my 2014 Tradesman with the readylift 2.5" front 1.5" rear until I found out about all the issues with the ball joints. Now I'm considering doing a 4" lift kit instead. Is there anyone running a 4" lift on their 2014? If so, is there a recommended brand to go with? Will I still need to replace the UCA's with a lift instead of a level? And finally, a dumb question, but I see a lot of guys running the 5100's with their lift kits. Is this a necessity or will the lift kit lift and level out my truck? Sorry if I sound arrogant, this is my first brand new truck and first time modding a truck from a clean slate.

Nice truck. I had the duratracs on my 13 and wanted another set the same size as yours for my lifted 14 but they were a little more cash than I had left when I was done.

I found them expensive too but up here in Quebec, tires need the snowflake logo on them for winter usage, otherwise you're illegal. That narrowed my choices to the Duratrac's since they are the only one with this logo...

There was very minor rubbing while turning on the upper control arm. Not enough to cause shredding of the inner sidewall tread of the tire. I traded yesterday for a 13 Ram 1500 and am curious if I install a leveling kit can fit my aftermarket rim/tire combo with minimal rubbing? I am sure this question or similar has been asked before but I didnt search the entire 66 pages. Any information from real world experience would be great! Thanks
You'll have the same issue with the rubbing on the upper A-arm. Possibly a little worse depending on how the truck was built. 1/4" wheel spacers will take care of that though.

You probably wouldn't have any issue with ball joints popping if you level. Very few do... If you want to go with a full 4" lift check out Zone Offroad or BDS. Both make quality lifts.
The Bilstein 5100's are added to level the lift fully. Most lift kits will get rid of a certain amount of rake but not all of it. The adjustability of the 5100's allows you to get rid of it fully.

Ok guys so here it is guys. I have a 2012 Ram Limited 4x4 and I wanna run a set of fuel mavericks 22x10 with a -24 offset and 5" back spacing on toyo m/t 37x13.5x22. Can I run these with only installing the BDS 6" coil over suspension with the fox shocks or will I have to add a body lift as well? Because I would like to stay away from a body lift. Thanks

You'll need to have the coilovers cranked and even at that you'll still rub. Trimming will be required for sure but you can make it work.

Brandon addressed it.
10" with -24 offset is actually 4.5" backspace, but thats neither here or there.
You will have to crank the coilovers up. Possibly not to the max, and it will fit.

If you have the plastic bumpers, you will have to trim the lower valence. Not much.
But since you have coilovers, it will give you the ability to play with height to get it to where you want, but you will be ok.
