Good looking truck, really like the stance. What size rims you running now and are you planning on larger tires. If so, what size are you going to?

2+ year update on Traxda (Truxxx) 2" level kit for 2wd:

Installed these on my truck in Dec. 2014, with about 4K miles on the odometer. Truck now has over 65K miles, and all is still good. No squeaks, rattles, or clunks from them. Very happy with my choice back then. And, being a farmer, I drive gravel / dirt roads more than paved. Have held up well. Can see pics and info on page 15 on this sticky, when I put them on. Figure this might help someone out.

I put the same level on my truck (truxx) back in February of 17 and i have noses on the front end over small bumps. It drives me crazy. It has caused my ball joint boot to rip open. Need to know how to get this fixed. Longer CA's of should i just get a lift. The ride is not very good either.

I have a 2016 Ram 1500 Sport 2wd crew cab. The stock tires are done so it seems time to upgrade. I’m hooing to do 5100s all around with the rear set to 0 and the front at 2.1. Stock rims, which I believe are 20x9?

1) what tire size would be ideal?
2) what’s the biggest I can go with no rubbing? 35x12.5x20?
3) what’s a good AT that’s not too heavy and doesn’t produce too much road noise? (I’m on the road a fair bit for work and don’t want to hear that drone every day, all day)

The Bilsteins don't work on 2WD. You're going to have to use a spacer.

Oh damn, that sucks.

Thanks for the reply.

Is it possible to change out the fronts for coil Overs?
I'm not the one to ask but maybe someone will chime in.

Hey guys just like plenty others in here 2014 Sport cC , looking to either do a level kit with 33’s or 35’s with what ever it takes to lift it minimally . Wanted to keep the truck in the garage.

The stupid shark fin antenna is actually my
Prob if I go with a lift. GPS / XM antenna I believe , Niether I use , anyone know of an aftermarket antenna that would allow me
To have more clearance parking in the garage. ?

Otherwise back to question 1 , what is required to do 35’s

Thanks all

I've posted these pics in other threads about tires, but figured I'd post up my 2" level kit. Just spacers on the front, and I couldn't be happier. It's been ~10K miles since installation and no problems yet.


Tires are 275/60/20 Cooper ATPs. I could have gone bigger, and will next time, but prior to purchasing them I didn't know for sure if larger ones would fit without rubbing issues.

Good Evening All!!
I see a lot of nice trucks. There are many combos. I do not see any with this and pictures would be nice too. I have a 2012 RAM 1500 2WD.

The leveling kit I am looking at is by Rough Country and it replaces the springs and shocks.

The wheel spacers I am looking at are by Supreme Suspension and hub centric.

I am sticking with stock wheels.
I will either stay with a stock tire size, just switch to all terrain. or increase from 275/60 20 to the next size up.

Looking to see if anyone has any info on these and what they may not like.

No one has posted photos recently so her are some my 2012 2wd Express new 1.5" level (actually raised the front 2") with 33" Cooper STT Pros on 20" Fuel Beast. This is something I've been wanting to do since I bought the true new but I waited for when it was time to replace the tires. I'm very happy with everything. It changed the attitude and it's a whole new truck now! Next up is nerf bars, tool box and possibly OEM gender flares (if anyone knows of a good deal on a set, please PM me!). Only other mods are the typical Flowmaster muffler and a K&N cai. More engine mods will come later...way later.

The photos were taken at the shop, at dusk. I'll take better photos this weekend and update after putting a few miles on the tires and hopefully finding a fun place to trespass and get her dirty!
I am just seeing this. Looks good! How did it ride?

Looking into the rc levling kit. Local shop here is charging 400 for everything. Parts ,labor and alignment. I know I don't need new shocks but would it be a good idea to replace with rc shocks?

Just installed a ReadyLift System on my 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 2wd it's suppose to be a total lift of 2.5 front and 1.5 in the rear, I will verify it in a few days to see if there is any settling with the kit. I am running 20x10 -12 offset Fuel Throttles on 35x12.50x20 Nitto Trail Grapplers. Here are a few quick pictures from when I picked it up...







Already Installing OEM Fender Flares.


Will be adding Rhino sidesteps later today so I will snap a few better pictures soon...

Nice boat and truck.
