Nice truck man!!!!:smileup: and to me it looks like a 3" to 3 1/2" Lift....

how much clearance do you have between the Top of the tire and the bottom of the wheel well on both Front And Rear??

IMO i would only add a 1" to 2" body lift cuz they can cause to many problems Other than that it would look great

yeah a 3"-3.5" sounds about right and heres a small list of what issues my brother had with a body lift on his Ram

1. Rubber boot on steering column torn because of excessive angle.
2. Gas doesn't want to go into filler neck right because of excessive angle.
3. fan shroud won't fit.
4. bumbers don't line up.
5. parking brake cable had to be reworked.
6. Tranny shift linkage had to be reworked.
7. Transfer case shifter had to be bent and reinstalled.
8. Tranny cooler lines were stretched and caused a failure in the radiator.

Now a 1"-2" lift shouldnt cause any of this My brother had a 4" so IMO the biggest without any problems would be 3"
