forgot to mention i see plenty of lifted rams and they dont rattle idk about body lifts though i dont reccomend them and i wont install them all your doing is putting plastic spacers between the frame and body and all the gaps between the bed and frame look like crap yes its much cheaper but in the automotive field you get what you pay for

I dont understand why everyone is so **** about body lifts. They are more true lift than a suspension lift of the same size and as long as you raise the bumpers and what not they dont look bad at all especially on Dakotas. The t-bar crank suspension lifts are garbage and can make for a rough ride and increase wear on steering, cv joints and suspension components. All you are doing by cranking the tbars is making it ride higher in the factory range of motion. Unless it is a differential drop style lift then from my experience it really is not a great idea on torsion bar frontends.
