Default Lift Questions!

Alright, I know most of these have probably been answered before but I have a few questions. I drive a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi 2WD Quad Cab. I am looking at getting a 6" lift from Rough Country for $900..

First of all, how are Rough Country lifts and how hard is the install?

Also, it recommends 35's but I really wanna put 37's on it. I know the bigger the tires, the worse it is for the truck and stuff, but I was curious if 37's would fit, or if they would be too overkill. Also, I have a 2" Rough Country leveling kit on my truck right now. Will I have to take that off before the lift installation? Or should I leave it on so much truck sits 2" higher in the front? Mainly looking for opinions and help!

Thanks so much!
Logan

I have a RC 6" suspension lift and it is well made. Not hard to install if you have the right tools. I could easilydo it in a day. 37s will not fit with just a 6" lift though. You'll need to go higher. I have a 12" lift total on mine

It's a known fact that 2wd trucks are not capable of being lifted.

I wasn't bashing you, just your taste in truck accessories.

I know. But truth be told, that truck goes to shows and help promote business and gets the bills paid
