Default Maxtrac 7 inch lift 2wd

So there's not a lot of good lifts for 2 wheel drive Dodge Rams. Also there's a lot of bashing from 4 x 4 guys about people lifting 2 wheel drive Dodge Rams. Well the way I see it is, it is your truck your money and lift it if you want. Let's see the two wheel drive's lifted, but I highly recommend the Maxtrac company for your 2wd lifting needs

Great looking truck, what size tires are those? I thought 7" would look top heavy when I read the thread title but it doesn't.

Lifts are mostly for clearance and a 2wd will still go many places that require more clearance than a stock truck has, so there is still plenty of functionality to be gained from lifting a 2wd. Plus, the CV angles are one less thing to worry about.

FWIW in your vehicle info you have the HD 5.7 listed, yours makes 395/410 HP/TQ

Thank you bud. The clearance is great. 35 x 12.5 20. Not the HD.
