Had to wait almost 2 months for kit, wheels, and tires to deliver, but it was worth it! Super happy with how it turned out. Shoutout to NorCal Motor Company in Auburn, CA for putting the truck together.

Looks great - I have the exact same truck (Color and Limited) but the 2020 and now that BDS has finally released the 2020 lift I will be moving forward with that this summer.

I have a 2021 Limited and I am just trying to confirm if the lift will work. Did Ram change something from 2019 to 2020 so that BDS had to release a different version? I also would like to get 18" wheels, but I am trying to get confirmation that they will fit with the BDS lift.

Trying to figure out the same thing! On bds website they only have the 6 inch lift for “2021” models. Let me know if you find an answer

I'm sure the 2021 Air Ride lift is being worked on and probably be released about this time next year. They just released the 2020 and yes, there were some differences between 2019 and 2020 lifts. It could be earlier though as the 2020 development may have been slowed by the Covid outbreak and I would assume they have a good handle on that now.

Also, the biggest issue of putting a 2020 on a 2021 is the warranty wont be honored by BDS.

I was in your shoes last June when I purchased my 2020 so I know the desire. :)

In your photos, is that at max ride height? Would you mind adding photos at the lowest setting, normal and max? Trying to decide if I want to do the daystar/revel lift or go with this. Truck looks great btw, exact same rims I want to get. Thanks!

I’ve done both. Go with the BDS. It is awesome.

I believe I was in off-road 1 in those photos. I’ll snap some photos in a couple days in each ride height.

Same. I just made a new Forum for this question. I called Ram and they told me there was no changes made from 2020 to 2021. I spoke with an Engineer for BDS and he told me that they had not confirmed it yet. He also said everything may seem like it fits when you install it but angles and lengths may be different causing issues further down the road. I seen that someone poste an RC 5" lift for 2019-2021 W/Factory air ride. I called RC last week when I saw it and they too said that they didn't have a lift available.

I talked to BDS ABOUT THAT TOO. I HAHE A 2021 and ran into the same issue. They said they haven’t done a 2021 yet so they can’t confirm it will fit. That being said, no shop around me will do out a 2020 kit on a 2021. I spoke to a shop in Texas, they put a 2020 kit on a 2021 ans said it fit fine. So, if your doing it yourself you can use the 2020 kit. If your wanting a shop to do it you would have to talk to them first.
