Default 2013 lifts

Hey guys I'm new here and have a few questions. I am in the market for a new truck and decided that I wanted a ram 2500. I am undecided on whether to get a diesel or gas burner. I am also interested in getting a lift. I would prefer to get a 4"-5" lift but all of the sites I have looked at only have lifts that fit up to 2012 models. Do the 2012 lifts also fit the 2013 trucks?
After I do get the truck it might be a few months before I take the plunge and buy a lift kit, but I would like to get some 35" tires under it asap. What would be the best way to achieve this? Bilstein 5100s? And again do the 2012 shocks fit on the 2013 trucks?
Thanks guys.

Yes, the kits for the 2012 2500's should fit the kits for the 2013 2500's. As far as I know nothing has change as far as suspension set up goes for those trucks.

In order to fit 35's I believe you need at least a leveling kit. Not sure how much they are for the 2500's but I would check out some sites like Rough Country or Hell Bent Steel. The Bilstein 5100's aren't an option for you as the 2500's have a different suspension set up than the 1500's.

You'll be ok providing you have stock suspension and no air, etc (not sure 2500 has this as it may only be a 1500 option).
Either way, you are good.

You can go 5" (RCX) or 4-6"+ (BDS)

To fut 35's right away you need a level kit and there are kits available, like readylift, etc

Let me know when you are ready and I will get you what you need

Oh, welcome to the Z

Thanks for the answers guys.
I went to the dodge dealership today and now I'm not sure that I want a 2500. They are having some pretty good deals on the 1500s so I might end up getting one of them

Are the lifts and leveling kits the same for 2013 1500s as they were for 2012?
Sorry I'm a complete noob when it comes to this kind of thing.

Ok thanks chadster. Is the air suspension on most of the new 1500s? Or is that an extra? The salesman didn't mention anything about that.

It's extra, but some will come with it if the dealer ordered it that way
Make sure to ask as there is no lift for air suspension to this date
