See how much squat you get hooking up. Then look at Torflex lift kits.

Have you cheked out the Cummins diesel forum yet? Lots of good info there. Quite a few members are leveling their trucks. Maybe that would help. I just had to have a 10.5'' drop bracket fabbed up so I could get my Windjammer to sit level. The new Rams are a beast.

You can buy riser kits for the 5er or make your own.

They sit high so when loaded there level or close to it. I appreciate that myself.

I ordered my Reese Rail kit adapter for the truck last night. Be here in a week. Will get it on, hook it up, and go from there.

Just an update. When I ordered the adapter, a couple days later I got an email saying it was on back order and will be here by the end of July. I emailed them yesterday and now they said Reese has pushed their delivery dates to mid to late August.

Do they make a base plate adapter? I think the only guys that make it are Reese and Mopar. I have the actual hitch--a Husky slider. I've been pleased with it so far.

Don't know the answer to that. Call them on Monday. I've talked to them a couple of times and they are always more than willing to help.
