Default Can I get pics of the 5" PA lift installed?

About to pull the trigger, just want to see a few more pics. Anyone with this specific lift installed, preferably on a 4th gen 1500 crew cab

awesome thanks, are there other 5" lifts out there other than PAs? Or do they not come in a full kit, meaning its just 3" body and 2" leveling..

Are those 35s you think on there?

Its weird, maybe the pics I have seen make it seem funny. But Trucks with the 6" BDS lift "look" lifted. The truck in that pic doesnt 'look' lifted. I cant tell if thats a good thing or not IMO (I mean the difference between 5 and 6 inches shouldnt be that big should it?)

That red truck has a 5" lift with 35's. In most pictures of the 6" BDS lift, the 5" rear kit is installed (which makes the truck taller than a front leveling kit/ 3" body lift) Bamasport has a 6" BDS lift with the 3" rear kit on 35's, which looks like this: http://www.ramforumz.com/showpost.ph...5&postcount=26

This is what the 6" BDS lift with the 5" rear kit on 35's looks like:

That makes sense. OK So let me see if I understand this...

PA lift - Raises 5" front, 3" in back
BDS lift - Raises 6" front, either 5" or 3" in back, depending on what you choose.

Either way the front lift is approximately the same...I guess I just have a hard time deciding. For a daily driver that wont see mud, any reason to not go PA lift?

Correct. For a daily driver, you'd probably be fine getting the PA lift. It's a lot less money. I found some pics of black Rams with 4" & 6" lifts on 35's, see what you think:

4" lift on 35's:









and here are black Rams with 6" lifts on 35's: (excluding the last Ram with the powdercoated rims; those are 37's)
