Got around to installing the the Performance Accessories 3" body lift kit on my 2012 Ram 1500.
I started at 9am and finished at 6pm on a cool Maryland October Saturday. Before the BL went on I had bilsteins set at 2.8", Zone 6" w/ 5" rear suspension lift, Fuel Hostages 20x10 -24 offset, Toyo Open Country MT 35x12.50R20. Seems to be pretty standard.
As you can see from the photos a 3" body lift does not sound too big but when you see the way the truck sits with one side done this thing is massive.
I priced the PA lift around a few places but ultimately found it on sale on eBay for $337 which included free shipping. The money I saved I picked up some PA gap guards for the front to cover a very small area of the engine bay that is exposed.
I am not sure if I am going to raise the exhaust tips up.. I actually like they way it looks hanging a bit lower. No big deal.
There is no noticeable gap in the rear fender wells.. The front is exposed a bit but the PA gap guards will cover that.
Breaking down the front and rear bumper was simple.. The more tedious part was putting them back on and all the fasteners. The instructions were shitty but nothing anyone could not do themselves by watching a youtube video. The rear blocks required welding.
The body aligned perfectly. If anyone wants to see a photo of something let me know and I will post some more.
