No one seems to know if the lift kits will work on the diesel Rams. I would like to put a 4 or 6 in lift and some 35s on my truck. Anyone have any info?

I don't see why they wouldn't work other than some sort of exhaust clearance issue.

I think theyre being cautious because i agree they should be the same parts. Whatever company puts out a 6 inch first im getting it. My rims and tires kinda need the lift. If the Hemi kits work I want skyjacker theyre really complete

what wheels and tires you looking at? I am looking at Mickey Thompson ATZ p3 tires in 35 inch and 6 inch lift. Dodge has a 4 in lift they will put on but I think the 6 looks better but ill look at both. Wheels I am looking at being maybe 18 in instead of 20? Maybe 17in?? Don't know. Probably go with the 18s or 20s. Wheels I haven't decided yet. Like to keep stock wheels but don't think they will work on the bigger tires.

C'mon Bro, fixem so we can see!!

Also very interested in the real world mpg you are gonna get with this setup. I'd love to get a 10mpg increase over my current setup.

Very good ride quality. Drop of 4-5 mpg. About 22 mpg highway
You loose that much mpg? I ll have to think twice about putting any lift on. I didn't think this engine would be affected that much by a 4" lift

With the lift and bigger tires I can see it being that much of a loss. I am not sure but if he is running 3.55 gear the engine is also working a little more. If that is the case I sure that running 3.92 gear would help out some. I got the 3.92 gear in my truck and this was the only reason that I did because I knew I was going to be lifting it and running 35" tires.
