    I'm going to get a suspension lift and was curious if this will make my 2012 ride rough.? If so can y'all recommend any that are smooth riding?

    Thanks

    Yes, 5100's are very popular because they are on the cheaper side of suspension lifts (400ish). OME is a little more around 700ish. Coilovers are on the high end of it normally over 1000 for just the front...

    For mine it did a little bit, but to me its a truck its meant to ride rougher then a car, and once its lifted your gonna love it and wont worry about it :D.

    PS are you getting a 4x4?

    Search around and you can find pics of 265's with 3 inch lifts. IMO im not a fan of that look to small of tire to large of wheel well. If your just wanting to level at first i would get 5100's set at 1.75 and you will be level on stock suspension... Then from there you can either move up to 2.5 and get an AAL or go down to zero and get some 885x coils with top plate spacer and you will have your 3 inch lift...
