Keep in mind I have the Off Road Edition Ram... I ended up not needing the brackets after all, but a non Off Road Ram I'm sure will. My before and after pics will also not be the same as a non Off Road Edition Ram, so the last pic is a stock non Off Road Edition Ram (Sport) running the same size tire as me (285/70R17 & 285/75R16), to give you a better idea of how much lift is gained.
Shipping and all cost me $350! Longer Control arms and shocks were not needed for my particular Ram, but again, a non Off Road Edition Ram may need them. Any questions or comments, feel free to type away!

the off road edition had the identical suspension as the regular 4wd the off road edition had a 2 inch body lift.

edit you could have done the same lift for 150$ 2500 diesel coils and add a leaf

It had a 1.5" Suspension lift. Higher rate Coils and leafs. Don't know where you got that info but I know for a fact its suspension is upgraded over the non Off Road Rams. I even asked my local Dodge/Ram/Jeep Dealer.

Diesel springs would only give 2" of lift. I already had 1.5" stock. V10 coils give 2.5" of lift, but both RUIN the ride of your rig. My friend put diesel coils and an add a leaf in his Sport and mine is taller and his rides like a tin can

I have diesel springs and it rides OK. Really its the Timbrens in the back combined with my sagging springs that makes it ride like crap. Timbrens arent supposed to be constantly in contact and boy do are those things stiff

Sure why not, you might think of a new thread title better suited to the subject. When you do just ask one of the mods to change it for you. Most like build threads, lots of pic's, keep your thread on topic, don't let it go sideways on you.
