Still no clear choice for lifting/leveling an Off-Road Package??

I’m new to the forums but I have read countless threads about lifting a RAM equipped with an off-road package. I have yet to find a cut and dry option to lift the truck 2-3.5 inches and have it level with no rake (at least less than an inch difference).
- if you don’t know, the ORP comes from the factory with a 1 inch lift -

Please share what you know and what my options are for lifting the ORP.

Thanks!

I have the off-road package and just did the Bilstein 5100 on setting 5 truck is perfectly level and love the ride.

Is this the kit you used? And do you have pictures?

Did you have to replace the upper control arms for a better angle? If not, are the stock UCAs doing fine?
Those are the exact that I used and I went with the rough country forged uca. I do have a thread about this exact set up that I just updated with my thoughts and pictures on this set up. 4AB55EE5-C1B4-478B-9F5C-36A204607C3C.jpeg

I used the 1.5" leveling kit for $25 from eBay that some guys on here showed me and it's perfectly level. I love it.

Bilstein. Installed them today, setting 4, off road package, netted 2.25". Used a 1" spacer in rear to maintain some rake under load, which is about 3/4". Also used the Mopar UCA from their lift kit. The resting angle isn't the issue, the issue is when off road with front wheels/suspension extended. The lift kit UCA provides about 3/4" more travel/angle. If you're a pavement pounder, probably not an issue. If off roading, they're worth the 120 bucks.

I chose the 2” Mopar lift—dealer installed for the warranty coverage. I am rough off-road with deer and duck hunting, and I figured the extra $$ would be worth the peace of mind to be covered. Except instead of the the 2” rear, I chose a 1” Daystar spacer and subbed out the fox rear shocks for 0-1.5” Bilstein 5160. Love the look and ride. No rubbing at all with 35x12.5R20 BFG AT KO2
