    No offence since this is a GM based site I suggest that you find a site that caters to the Dodge. You might want to try Pirate4x4 they will help with any vehicle brands:whistle:

    Although this is mainly a GM website, all are welcome.

    There are a few of us Dodge diesel boys floating around, mainly due to we all have K5's.


    Check out www.towrig.com ,if you get back to check your thread and recieve this. We can help you over there.;)

    I put a tuff country 3" lift on my GFs old 01 1500 ram. Cost like $700 or so with shocks. I also have a friend with a 1/2 ton ram that we took the left over springs and control arms off a friends 2500 cummins truck that was lifted and put those parts on the 1500 along with a 2" leveling kit on the front and he is running 35s with no probs. You can get the leveling kits off ebay for like $50. The shock application difference is 4" between a 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton so I imagine is could be equivilent to a 3-4" lift with just the HD suspension parts.
