4.5 rough country lift and 35s

I just got my 2012 back and I had a 4.5 inch rough country lift installed and put a set of 305 x 65 x 18 Wild Peaks on and i like it a lot. I upgraded to the Biltien 5100 shocks. It rides great but it is a lot higher than i thought. I could have easily went with the 3" lift.

I honestly cant really notice the difference in the ride. Maybe a little more body roll than before but it might just be the hieght that makes it feel that way. Im really happy it other than the hieght.

I went with the Wild Peaks because of the amount of driving I do. I had them on my cummins and like the overall performance.

I hope it is not more of a ***** to get washed now. Car washes always complained about the dodge

I know yours is a 6.7 but I started out with a 3" on my 6.4 and it was just too small. I took it off and put on a 4.5" a couple days later and love it. I have 325/60/20 tires. I think you made the right choice with the 4.5".

I can still fit into car washes. Post up some pics of your truck.

Chances are you wont fit in most car washes. I fit in about 2 with my truck after 4 inch RC lift and 35s, and I can't even remember where those 2 were, none were local.

Powerwash bays yes, drive through car washes, not even close.

I recommend a good step ladder for washing too, not a cheap one, I fell off a cheap one once after about 6 beers and it didn't end well.

Do you have any side view pics? This is the setup I'm planning on running but I'm torn between 20s and 18's Would like to know how much wheel well would get taken up!

Looking at the pic, it looks like there is plenty of room. Could probably go with 37s easily. I think you are better off with 18s. Go to the Carli thread, they have recommendations. I think they say 18s but I do not recall. 20s will make for a rougher ride because of less sidewall height

I don't want to run 37's but I also don't want tons of wheel well showing either! I want it to look right. Thats Why I'd like to see pics from a straight on side view!
