New to this site. I have a 2010 3500 megacab and am looking to put on 35" tires. I have been looking at the carli lifts but I don't want to jack up the truck too high as I pull gooseneck horse trailers and bumper pulls. Any suggestions? Do I need a lift?
If you want the best ride improvement over stock I would go with the Backcountry or Performance 2.0 with full leaves. The Backcountry is a few hundred bucks cheaper and comes with Bilstein 5160's valved with 2.0 internals, whereas the Performance 2.0 is going to come with the Carli valved Bilstein 7100's. Either of those kits will give you a major improvement in ride quality over stock.
The Backcountry would be good bang for the buck if you're looking to upgrade both the front and rear suspension. One thing to keep in mind if considering full leafs is how much load you'll be towing. While the load capacity is similar between the Carli leafs and the stock leafs, the Carli leafs will compress considerably more under larger loads.
With a heavy gooseneck trailer, air bags would be a good idea. They would allow you to keep your soft street ride while not towing, and would allow you to have a firm and controlled rear end while towing.
