Rough country lift..I need your advice and knowledge
I just sold my 3rd gen to my dad 2 weeks ago because he loves my truck and had to have it lol. So I have been on the look out for a 4gen Ram to replace it. I always wanted to lift my 3rd gen but never had the time or the extra money to do it. Well I have found me a really nice used 2014 Ram 1500 crew cab 4x4 with 18,900 miles 1 owner from Michigan according to car fax for a pretty good deal at the dealership about 45 miles from me. I have been working out a deal back and forth over the phone and got them down to a pretty good price. I have not seen the truck in person but have seen tons of pictures. I am going to drive it this Saturday and if it checks out I'm going to purchase it. Now here is my question. The dealer installed a brand new rough country 6" lift with brand new xd's and 35 12.50 20 tires. Apparently the dealer decided in the month of December they were going to order some kits and install them on some of the used trucks they have. My question is how is the rough country lift kit for the 4 gen Ram? I have not researched or kept up with it in a while to know how these lifts are holding up for the 4gens. I would prefer to have a Bds lift as that's the lift I wanted for my 3rd gen but this is what this truck has so it is what it is. This will be a pavement pounder with very little off road other than driving down a dirt road during hunting season, and tow a 16 center console bay boat. This will also not be a daily driver more so a weekend warrior. Just wondering your thoughts on this lift and if there is anything I need to know about it or look for. I need you guys help in a big way before making this purchase. Thanks in advance.
