Can anyone tell me if my truck is leveled or what measurements you have on a stock rebel

Hello all, new guy here, I just purchased a 2020 ram rebel, as I traded in my 2016 rebel on that had air ride ( what a nightmare) so this time I went with no air ride. So to me the truck looks leveled by the eye. so I don't want to go buying leveling kits if I don't have to. truck has 28,000 miles on it so I'm not sure what previous owners have done. Every time I look at it though it just doesn't have that front slope that I would expect. I know rebels come with a 1 inch raise over a regular truck but let me know what you think. If anyone has a stock rebel and can let me know what the measurement from ground to fender is that would also help. If it is leveled i may just consider the UCA's because those appear to be stock as they have the nipple on them for air rides. then it will be onto tire choices.

So I know they are factory leveled on the frame with +2” in the front on my 21. Are you looking for distance from ground to top of the wheel well or center of the hub to the top? I’m running 35 Atlas Primas with very little rub on stock suspension (only grabs when wheel is locked out)

Awesome thank you! i kind of was figuring that by the looks. Now would you suggest UCA's? Iv always put bigger tires and usually 20 inch rims on my trucks. Around a 35 inch tire but I my last set wouldn't work because they were 5 lug. So I'm thinking a new set at some point after i figure out the correct offset so I don't have rubbing. I don't mind the little trimming that might be needed but I'm not trying to go crazy

The stock wheels (which I am still running) are +18, and right now with the 35s, I have a fraction of an inch from the trim at the bottom of front wheel wells when the tires are turned completely in. Without a lift, I do not imagine you can decrease your offset at all without modifying the wheel well. Not all 35s are created equal some maybe you can, but mine are on the aggressive side of tread and they barely fit with the stock suspension

Old pic, but you can see how close they are. When the tire is turned completely inboard, it gets mighty close to the bottom trim and that’s on flat pavement. If you’re going to trim and modify, I would start by removing that piece of plastic.

Just following up with my last comment. I took a pic of the wheel well on level ground and you can really see here. Any more offset whether that’s from the rim or a spacer/adapter and that tire will definitely be touching the liner. BD94BF73-B580-476F-8A44-9E94CB8F5F53.jpeg
