Default Just got me a new Ram 1500, have lift question

So ive been looking around trying to find a good lift. honestly the last dodge truck i bought already had a lift on it, and i'm not sure what i can trust.

i was looking at the skyjacker stuff, and some other brands, but really unsure of what i should get, i want something good but not over the top expensive. I got about a grand now saved up for a lift kit, and it looks as if i will need almost 2k in order to get something good, is that right?

if anyone has any suggestions for a 6 inch lift, i'm open to ideas.

i would like a 6 inch suspension lift, so i can jack my bad boy up and get bigger tires on it.

Check out RCX (cheapest, but still great according to MANY MANY people on this forum)

Also BDS has a good kit

ProComp has a kit
Zone (not highly recommended, not sure why)

Just givin you some options.

RCX is extremely affordable and a lot of guys on here run it. But I'm trying to avoid only selling one product on this forum, it's getting very unoriginal, the stuff guys are running. So i named a few options that people run on here.

good luck! can't wait to see what you come up with
