Hey man. Fun time ahead

So I see your objectives, and what the demands on the truck will be but can you tell us a bit about what you prefer, in terms of esthetics, in a lifted truck.

Ex:

* HUGE space between tire, and flares
* Tires STUFFED into wheel wheels
* Smaller 17 wheels
* 20+ wheels
* Bigger rubber (>35") or modest (35")
* Leveled
* Ass high
* California ass low
* Spinners?

Or even post a few pictures of RAMS online that you dig. That will in a nutshell give us direction on where to steer you.


Cheers,

Var

First things first! It says in your sig that you have a 2013 DODGE ram. Incorrect. You have a 2013 RAM 1500 lol. As for lift, are u a 2wd or 4wd. That plays a big role in your options.

If you have a 4x4 check out my build thread. I went with a 6" and 35" and I love it!

Hey there, cant wait to see what you decide to do with your truck its always exciting to customize a new truck or jeep and pics are always a good source for some inspiration. Here is a pic of my work in progress, I have only had it for a week now so I am still waiting for some accessories etc. The 6" Pro Comp lift 20" series 33 Pro Comp wheels and 35'x12.5R20 Pro Comp Extreme All Terrains were installed by a 4x4 shop from the dealer before I purchased so it was a nice starting point to build from. Hope I can inspire you.
Regards, Jeff
