well it depends how much your wanting to spend, if you want to, go to my pics and look at my truck, see if you like it right now it has a 3" body lift 3" leveling kit and im clearing 36" super swampers or, where do you live?

Its a 09 not a 96 ram. Get a leveling kit you can run 35s with trimming.

woops, i was thinkin 2000 from a previous discussion, and you could put a body lift in and you wont have to trim anything with 35s

And lose your warranty.

yeah if he had one to begin with, which if he does, then maybe he shouldnt put the body lift in, but its not like the warranty is going to last that much longer anyway provided he has one.

What about the 100,000 drivetrain warranty.

well since its coil springs all around u can get a 2 inch lift for around 100 bucks just buy springs and ull be able to fit 33s underit

if you just want a more aggressive stance and still a off road look, level the front end, and throw some 33'' cooper stt's under it you won't void any warranties and you'll still get a beefy look for it. i took off the running boards and mud flaps to make it look taller too but you could also throw in bushwacker pocket style fender flares painted to match (bout $650) and a bull bar or light bar on the front for about $250. everything installed said and done is around 2,250 if you can find the right place to buy the tires from. there's a pic of my truck it's just leveled with a bull bar and i didn't have my stt's on there so it'd be about another inch higher than that just for ideas a 4 inch lift, 35's and the extras will run you about 4,600-5,000 so it's half the cost to just level it also. i have 20'' rims though so my tires are a lot more expensive than 17's or 18's
