which leveling kits should i get?

what is the big deal of getting that bilstien kit compared to those? If all i am looking for is just alittle more hight for bigger tires? I was thinking that the puck style would be the best for my app because you get front and rear lift?

And if anyone has either of these kits i have a quick question do you still fit in the garage with 35in tires?

I have ready-lift 2.5" kit and I'm running 35x12.5x18 no probs with any rubbing. I guess your gonna have to measure your garage, but if it fit before, it should after... My truck sits about 3 inches higher

I have the rough country 2.5 kit with 35/12.5/20's. It's a pretty minimal change all around, but the truck actually looks like a truck now. The new ram's are so large body-wise I don't understand why they sit so low stock. Some cons about the kit/tire set up:

Be prepared to take a significant MPG hit
Acceleration is noticeably reduced
Price of 35's is retarded

All things considered I am extremely happy, the truck looks badass without huge spaces between the wheel and top of the wheel well and the tires don't stick outside the body line. And yes it fits in the garage easily. Hope this helps.

I lost around 4+ mpg. Haven't recalibrated the ECM for the new tire size but it's definitely noticeable. I went with the Toyo Open Country MT's. Best looking tire out there IMO but they weigh a ton.

Hey Kyle did you change anything besides adding the kit to get the 35s to fit? Also are those the stock wheels? No rubbing or anything? Does te kit have everything you would need to make it fit without rubbing? Your truck is exactly te same as mine besides a different grill...

I know people have installed 35's on stock rims but they needed either wheel spacers or wheel adapters for them not to rub.

Why not just get bilstein 5100's for a leveling kit. best part about bilsteins are you can keep them in for a suspension lift. just a thought.

I installed the rough country level kit this weekend and put 35x12.5R20 Nitto Mud Grapplers on stock rims as well. Needed 1/4" spacers to clear the upper A arm.
I get a little bit of rubbing on the inside plastic fender liner at full turn. Otherwise lots of too
For these tires
