Hey guys...

I am fairly new here and this is actually my first Ram I have purchased. Owned many other chrysler/jeep vehicles, but love my truck!

Anyhow, I just put a level kit on my truck last week and put my new rims/tires on yesterday. My dilema is, do I put the 3" PA body lift on? Question # 2..I am thinking about some fender flares...would you leave them black or paint them to match??? Here is a pic of my truck....

Also...be honest and let me know if you guys think it looks ok...for a start!

Thanks!!

The level kit seems cool so far. A friend of mine and I did it and used a buddy's shop. We put it up on a lift, dropped everything, put the spacers in and were drinking a few beers in about an hour and a half! It was very easy, especially having the lift. As for the lift, I originally wanted to put a 6" suspension, body and 35's. My problem is, I travel and I park my truck at the airport and the ceiling in the garage doesn't look like it is 8' clearance!! Any suggestions on flares?? bushwacker pocket? or just plain?

truck looks super bro.flares matched or black would both look great imho. black would make it look more bossy. if you do go w/flares, i would get a rubber at least 13.50 so the flares would look insync together. i myself want to go with a 13 or 14.50 tire in the future.

Looking good. If you do get the flares, just install them out of the box in black and take some pics (they are easy to install and remove). You can then compare it to something like this truck that has white ones. I noticed that you have color matched bumpers and spears, but black handles and mirrors, so you really could go either way. If you like the monochrome look you could try to get the handles and mirrors painted to match as well.

i think for your truck the flares would look better painted to match.

I like flares and for some reason Im not digging them on your truck. Maybe with the lift they woud look better. Or painted to match. I really was digging your truck as it sat before the flares though. The more I look at it I think the reason Im not digging it is that the front flare dies into a white bumper. Ok so IMO lift it and paint the flares to match the white; leave the handles and mirrors alone they flow with your rims. Tint your windows and clear the headlights do the lift and your set

I think your truck looks great and will be bad ass with that lift! Keep the flares as is.

I have to agree with dale3fan3. I normaly like the black pocket flares, but with the white bumpers, I think color match would look better. Maybe the black nerf bars, and tool box will change my mind though.
I'd keep the grille white, and definetly add the body lift.

I also think they would look better painted after seeing it. You still have enough black pieces to tie in with the wheels. :tup:

I would not do the black grill. They look cheap to me. I think nfab bars would look better then even tube black

I say do the 6" lift, paint the lower 12 inches of truck Black (two-tone), do the fender flares black and put on some Nitto 35's Grapplers. I think the Blacked out bottom will make it look even taller. Sweet truck!
