Question 2011 Ram Crew Cab 1500 4 x 4 Lift Question

I wanted to run 37 x 13.5 x 20 tires on 12 inch rims on my new 4 x 4 Ram.

I was planning on a 6 inch suspension lift but wanted to know if I need to go higher and by how much.

Do I have to go with a 3 inch body also?

a 6 inch should be more than sufficient for 37's. I run 35's on a 4" lift and 18" wheels a +18mm offset with no problem at all.

You have a 4th gen ram so you can fit 37s with a 6" lift alone. If you want to go higher for looks then you will need to use a body lift to get more inches. If Big Horn 4 Life is around he has a 4th Gen ram as well and he has a 8" lift with 37s. He used a method like I mention below to get a little higher. The 6" lift does say 37s are useable so you should be alright. If you had a 3rd gen Ram then you would need to go higher then 6" to fit 37s

There is a trick to get a couple inches that you can use. I am doing this right now....well soon. You can get the Bilstein 5100s and use those up front to gain anywhere from 0-2.5". They have 3 settings that you cna raise it at which are .5", 1.5" and 2.25". If you do use that method I would recommend sticking around the 1.5" mark. To match the rear you cna use a spacer on the rear suspesion.
