suspension guru's.. need help

im waiting on a loan to come through, if it does... tuesday im going to start peicing together a lift for the dodge (yes i know, its not a ford), but i figure some of u suspension guys can give me a hand since i cant get any help on the dodge site. i wanna go with a 6.5in RE long arm kit, but as far as i know they dont make one directly for my truck, so imma have to peice it together...can anyone gimme some tips on what exatly i have to get.. i sorta want to have it set up like zach beards setup...just need some info on this please.. also after its lifted up more im either going to be runnin a 35x13.5x15 SuperSwamper Bogger or 37x14.5x15 Bogger on 15in MT classic lock wo0t! skool me on this!



EDIT: also, do yall think ill even be able to use any parts from RE on my truck, with little to no mods to them? i do have a stock D44 front end..

you dont want that on your dodge.

buy a real lift kit for your truck. the RE long arms convert your 4 link to a radius arm setup.

btw i dont think taking a loan out is the way to lift a truck. save the money yourself

I agree with no loan. Didn't you have your Ranger repo'd? I would wait and save up, especially with the economy the way it is.

Yeah if you have to take out a loan you shouldn't do it.

BDS and Fabtech both make a 5" or so lift for your truck. RCD also makes a 6" system for your truck.

ill look in to those other lift options also, BTW didnt ask for the loan crap, i took the loan out for other reason's not just for the lift, thats an added bonus with this loan.




BTW: the only reason why the ranger got repoed was i was out of a job for 6 +/- months, dont have to worry bout that now.
