Default 2013 dodge 2500 lifts

I've got a 2013 dodge 2500 4x4 and I was wondering what's the best smooth riding 6in lift for this truck. Any help in the right direction would be great.

checkout fabtech. i know they make lifts for the HD trucks. and the pic on their site shows a dually. but i couldnt find the verbiage to say specifically for dually or not, or if it even matters.

Well the best/smoothest lifts out there would be Carli or Kelderman. But you're going to pay a pretty penny for either of them. Pure Performance makes really good stuff as well and is a little more affordable and then there's BDS and Top Gun Customz. Whatever you do, make sure you get a long arm lift, that's the first step to keeping good ride quality with that much lift. After that it's just the components you put on and how much you want to spend to do it. For the average guy I recommend BDS or Pure Performance as both will give you good quality stuff without breaking the bank.

i have a 6" BDS lift, its clearly not the best lift as far as ride is concerned but I wasnt about to pay 4-5 grand just for the lift. Im pretty happy with my lift but will probably be upgrading to a long arm at some point

Nice Ram!! And yes, if you want a smoother, better ride, a long arm lift is the way to go. I have a short arm lift and it rides like stock.
