Default Should I lift?

Hey all,

Gotta brand new 14' 4x4 cc sport. Some say lift then there are those that say "you do it, you will screw up car suspension, tranny, etc)

I don't wanna wear down the life of my truck or anything
on it and I like the way it rides and prefer to keep it smooth and not bumpy.

Let me point out Money is not an issue.

Any thoughts on lifting compared to staying original?

Well if your in no big hurry stay as is, then some were down the line think about it a body lift will not disturb the ride.

Hmm yeah. I like the look of a lifted ram and the ride height.

Choices choices!

If you buy a quality lift, you will not compromise any ride quality and the additional wear and tear on your truck would be minor. If money is no option, I can get you set up on a 6'' BDS coil over kit. Amazing kit and the coil over will give you a better ride than stock.

If you have the money to buy as good kit like the BDS as mentioned you won't have any issue. After riding in my friends truck with a procomp lift it was OK. After he swapped to the fox shocks it was like a different truck

Mind me because I'm a noob and haven't lifted any truck before, but you are mentioning raising my truck 6"? That seems freakin high lol. I was thinking 2-4" with some beefy tires.

Any pix of a truck with the lift you mentioned?

Thanks!

Do the dealers in your area sell lifted trucks. They sell them with several different brand 4" and 6" lifts all with 35x12.5's at different dealers here in Houston. If you can find some local to you its a great way to see the difference in person. Might help you make a decision.

No problem. That's what I did when I was planning on lifting my 13. Makes it easier when you see them in person did decide what lift if going to give you the look you want.
