Hi guys. Has anyone installed a lift kit on a new Ram? I have a 2011 1500 ST and I was looking for a lift kit greater than 6 inches. I like the "show off motorsports" lift kits but nothing for my truck. Love to see pics and brands of lift kits on newer models. Once you see the show off motorsports trucks.....thats the stance Im looking for...wheels and all. Any ideas? Even some 6 inch kits I wouldnt mind seeing. Thanks

Look into 4wheelparts.com type in your vehicle information. They sell some of the best lifts. That's where Ive gotten all my lift kits.. anything greater than 6" is usually a superlift. or custom... i dont see a lot of brand name companies with 8" lifts. reason being that anything bigger than 6" is usually disfunctional offroad.. I have an 04 ram..and Im doing a solid front axle conversion.. 1500 to 2500 and it will have an 8" lift.. only because its being custom made.

http://4wheelonline.com/ or Top Gun Customz. Much better than 4 Wheel Parts. Definitely do not get your lift installed there, either.

Ive never had a problem with the work 4 wheelparts does. the ones here in Arizona are great..but they also know what their doing. Not all may be as good as the ones here.

Good to hear about AZ. The 4WheelParts in SoCal absolutely BLOW. There are plenty of other shops, like Off Road Warehouse ( http://www.offroadwarehouse.com/).

not to beat a dead horse but i think 6" is the highest for our trucks, from there you can add billstiens and raise em a little more, and 1.5" rear spacers to match, if youwant more theres a 3" body lift. for a total of about 11" of lift and ability to clear 40" tires
