ya thats what i have been told as well and even though i dont like the idea of a body lift i guess if its less expensive and requires less modification that making the suspension any higher then it is probably the most practical answer, planning on getting some running boards anyways so hopefully that helps with not seeing the frame stick out too far from under body.

I would buy a bigger one, if anybody would make one. My buddy's F-150 has a Rize lift, but they aren't going to make one for the Ram 1/2-ton. Almost can't seem to get farther than sitting on hold with Top Gun Customz.

After thinking for awhile though, I am hoping somebody that is running the 6" and leveling kit will chime in. I have seem it listed in several signatures, but can't PM anybody until I get 25 posts.

There are extended RADFLO's that replace the factory coilovers for full-length, then I would only have one spacer with a leveling kit, but that takes it a little past what I want to spend at $1200+ for a front pair.

I have always been a fan of all suspension versus body lifts. Even back in the high-school days of hockey puck lifts, I prefer to stuff the biggest tire possible without it and run the mud.

So..... I got Full Throttle on the phone today. Great customer service. They have the 10" for Ram 1500 listed up through 2006. With mine being a 2007, I think I am going to do a little research tomorrow with an '06 & '07 side by side, then order it. The rest of the companies sell theirs listed as 2006-2008, so I am thinking it will work.

If I need to do some small modding anywhere, I will keep good notes.

40's HERE WE COME !
