Default Time for a change!

Hey everyone, I am a newbie. Great Forum!! I have a 2012 Ram 1500 Express Quad Cab in Deep Cherry. I have had it for a year now and can't do it anymore! It is time for a change. Unfortunately budget is an issue so for the present moment , after many hours on here trying to figure out what is best , I ordered Bilsteins for the front with a 1" rear spacer and the RCX 1.25 body lift. Was gonna get the spacer lift but to many people are leaning toward the Bilstiens and I will already have them for the future if I go with a 6" later. Which i would like to do. I really want to set them at 2.8 and see what happens. I am doing the install myself so I guess i could change to 2.1 if not happy but really want to get as much height as possible. I also ordered the Bushwacker pocket flares , now am saving money for wheels and tires. I want to go with the 20 x 9 Ballistic Jesters in black with the red accents and for the tires the 35x12.50 20 Federal Mt Courgiars . Also with a -12 offset. Would this be a good set up? Is the offset good for the lift and flares? Are 35's the way to go or should I stay with 33's? I am used to lifted vehicles so know what they are about. My work truck is a 1995 Ram with 5" lift and 35's with a crazy ass flame job. I will post some pics of it. Last year I traded, for this Ram a 2003 Ford Excursion with 14inches of lift with 38 Kumos on 24" Rockstars, It was Huge. So I need to customize my new Ram. All and I am also a custom painter , so I am trying to think of an evil paint scheme for it also. I will start taking pics and posting them for all to see. Thanks for all the great input form everyone on this site.

Welcome to the forumZ you will find many knowledgeable members here. If you have any questions feel free to ask. If there is anything i can do just let me know.

Additionally that set up sounds just fine to me as far as lift/tire combo 35's should fit just fine with the Bilsteins.

Thanks
