Did you do anything different with the shocks or did you install the 3.5 kit only? Truck sits perfect.

Kit only. I like the ride. I do have Rebel Shocks in back.

Hey guys, skimmed thru this thread and just had a quick question. If I pull the trigger on the ready lift 3.5" and want to keep stock wheels and go with 295/60r20 KO2's do I need wheel spacers? I see some guys get the 1.25" bora spacers? is the necessary?

2019 Ram Big Horn 3.5 sst ready lift. 20x12 moto metals with 35x12.5x20 toyo open country R/T. She rubbed a little but that issue was solved. Truck performed like a champ off road and with a trailer.

Hey Guys,
I just bought a 2020 Ram 1500 4x4, sits to low for me. Just wanted some advice; looking at getting the ready lift sst 3.5 or the fabtech 3" lift and running mayhem warrior 20 x 9 with 0 offset. Just not sure about tire size. With 35.12.50.20 will there be any rubbing? If so would a 295/60 or a 33.12.50 be better. I will be going offroad, nothing crazy though. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Had a 06 F250 6" procomp lift with 37"s . New to Rams

General question..what’s the widest you guys go on wheels and tires? I’m back and forth between a 3.5 and 4” lift so just trying to get a general idea

If you are going off roading - don't get the Readylift or spacer lift in general. You wont be happy.

Why do you say that? What do mean by offroading? I do a lot of hunting/fishing and find my self driving down rutted out roads or corn fields. Are you saying the ready lift sst kit can't handle that?

Mine couldn't- squeaky ...It was enough for me to switch to the 4in lift.

I have a 3.5" lift and I'm running 20x10's and 35/12.5/R20. I did have to do some small trimming of the front fender. The gallery on www.customoffsets.com is a great source for seeing what others have done. Can filter by lift size, brand, rims size, etc...

I wanna hear from the guys who have had the 3.5" lift on their truck for a while. Do you regret it? Have you ran into any issues? I just purchased a 2019 Ram Bighorn and I'm looking to lift it. I just dont want to run into any problems a few years for the road.

If you drive on 100% smooth pavement its ok, but I took mine off as soon as the 4in BDS came out for the Non Air Ride and am loving it (y) Even though the angles are better the geometry still isn't correct.

I’ve had mine on for a little over 30,000 miles. No issues. Still rides like new. I did not install the preload spacer so ride wasn’t changed much. No regrets. It’s an inexpensive lift and good for basic driving. Not for hard core off road
