    88 Ram 50 Built 4g64/4g63t lift questions

    Hey there guys. I have an 88' long bed 50, current mods list...
    -Built 2.4 with 2.0 head
    -Evo 3 16g turbo
    -2g dsm maf
    -HKS external wastegate
    -Front mount intercooler
    -560cc injectors
    -ECMlink V3
    -Bosch 044 fuel pump
    -Comp stage 4 pressure plate, sprung 6 puck

    The truck appears stock and I want to change that. I have obsolutely zero experience in 4x4s but I build DSMs for a living. How do I go about lifting the truck? I have a set of 35s laying around that I would like to use. I have a full service shop so work isn't an issue, I just need to know the best route to take to make the truck more functional.

    in the front, get a set of 2nd gen montero uca (92-95), for the rear use an add a leaf. You will also need a body lift to clear 35s as anything over 33 will not fit in the wheel wells even with the suspension lift and the modding of the rear of the front wheel wells.

    Awesome. I'm going to order those today. Anything specific I should know about lifting the truck or issues I'm going to run into? I'm completely new to 4x4.

    Here's the 3" body lift kit; JC Whitney, that should have some type of directions.
    But the kit only shows the lift parts. You will also need to worry about longer shocks, brake hoses, fuel lines, ect. You'll probably have to cut some of the firewall to make clearance for the steering column shaft. You might also have to re-route the throttle cable. And a dozen other little details.
    I knew daredevils and I ain't got nothin' against them, ........it's just they're all dead.
