Good afternoon,

My limited with air ride folks, I will say that I was sad to hear that there aren't many options to lift your vehicle, but I did find that BDS makes a lift kit that should fit the 4x4 air ride. What I didn't know was could that lift kit for the 4x4 air ride suspension fit on the the 4x2 air ride suspension, so I called BDS and of course they would not validate whether the 4x4 air BDS 4 inch lift kit would fit my 4x2 limited with air ride suspension. Well.......... it does. After making the gamble to buy the $2400+ lift kit it does fit, installed by a local Tire & Wheel shop it went on without a hitch. So yes you can install a 4 inch BDS lift kit on a 4x2 air ride suspension Ram 1500 limited. Yes,Yes you can!!!

I didn't want to order wheels and tire until I knew for a FACT that the lift kit would fit, but I know now and I have ordered a set of 24x12 KG1 Forged Rims.

Hopefully I will get my truck back tomorrow after receiving a thumbs up of my rims coming in today, and a promise to have my vehicle back to me tomorrow.

Sooooooooooooooo......


Stay tuned and I wheel... fill you in with pictures soon.

Well my KG1 forged 24x12 wheels did arrive and they shop sent me a picture. I had butterflies because when you drop $3500 on rims alone you really want them to look the part. I have seen trucks with rims on it with a small lip on the rim, that's what I didn't want and the picture they sent was not clear. So I finally go to the shop and.............. I was blown away. The shop did a great job with the lift, the wheels and the tire selection. I'm more of the street look not the off road so I went with a standard radial. On to the pictures =)

I really don't think that the pictures do the vehicle any justice.

The full air ride suspension works at every level, which was something I was concerned about. The height is taller than expected the lip on the 24x12 is wider than I expected. the air ride rolls smooth as butter and nothing has changed with the lift. I REALLY wanted 24x12 and I'm glad the shop talked me out of it because these wheels do the trick. See for yourself any questions I'll be sure to answer them.

At the end of the day

- BDS 4 inch air ride lift kit $2471.00
- KG1 Forged KF012 Scale 24x12 $3500.00
- OHTSU 305/40/24 $800.00

Total = $6691.00 end result for me PRICELESS

This truck isn't over the top or gaudy, for me its classy and I'll keep it that way

Next up:

- Window tint but not that smoke tint... let's keep it classy
- Spiked lug nuts 6 inch lugs chrome
- Two panels under both headlights, chrome automobile wrapped so the whole front grill is chrome.
