2012 Ram 1500 4x4 Laramie Longhorn Edition Crew Cab

We'll I finally got it all done...after a ton of research, no desire to void the warranty and not wanting any rub from the tires...

Installed the new 2" Mopar lift that includes 4 new Bilstein 5100s and new rear coils. No spacers or blocks, the new kit they released a couple years ago. Added the BF Goodrich T/A KO 285/65/20 and basically have almost 4+” of total lift.

Not sure where Mopar gets the 2” lift designation, it’s more like 3.5 in the rear and 2.8” in the front..plus the 1.5” tire increase and it’s the perfect setup. It still sits down the front so the fuel economy is not impacted as much. Not sure what my mileage will be but I’ll post back in a few weeks.

I didn’t know if I wanted BG Goodrich tires as I was looking at Cooper Zeons but in the end I thought about the winters in NOVA and opted for an all-terrain tire.

Ride is perfect, no harshness or anything. Just as smooth as the original setup if not better…

Just so you can see the parts. Go to their parts store on their website, not amazon. Search the web for coupon codes and you'll beat that price.

HAHAH.... Imagine some of us Long-timers here on the site... For 9 years now all these "Ideas" have been fundamental in numerous divorces and Light wallets!

Looks great, I am thinking of going with the same lift, did you install it? Does it require any cutting or welding work?
