Thanks buti don't recommend getting the headlights, don't get my wrong I loved the look. I do a lot of highway driving day/night and at night in the prairies (AB) they suck!! No i didn't have the hid kit which may have helped and be way better, I dunno. Also I had to keep a rag an spray bottle in my door due to the fact being on dirt roads, dust on the black headlights made it miserable to see..
hope this helps

I do a ton of country driving with Bambi and his little buddies out there, main reason I got hid's. I can see the world from every direction.. So lighting isn't really the issue. It is a challenge to find a nice set of black headlights for 3rd gens. Found a seller on Kijiji for 300 today though. Halo's, hid compatible and such.

I am planning to come spring when I'm done college for the year and will be working full time. I really do want the BDS, but it all comes down to price of the lift and the money I have at the time lol.

Here's my thoughts on the lift kit you get....

Sure BDS would be nice and is a better quality kit. But you also don't plan on keeping your Ram for a very long time either. Within a few years you're going to be looking for a Cummins. So IMO the Rough Country kit would be perfectly fine for you. You'll save a bit of money and then can put that towards other mods or start up a Cummins savings account Plus I've haven't heard of too many problems with the RCX kits on 3rd gens.

Yeah that is another thought going through my head too. I met this guy at my school who I parked beside, he has 2nd gen SCSB with a 5" RCX suspension and 3" body and worked for a place that did lifts and saying how he hasn't experienced any real problems with the rough country kits.

Was funny seeing a Ram with 8"s of lift and running same size tires as me
