I'm on my second 4th gen. Made the mistake of trading my g56 12 in for a 13 automatic, yes the 12 was deleted.. ( anyone gotta g56 they wanna trade me?l ) anyways I've been looking for leveling kits... Question is 2" will it give me some rake still? If so whaty brands the best? Is there a company that makes one less then 2"? And alignment or not after I install?

Again. I know its been beat to death.. But what's the best hid kit to get buy. By best i meean cheapest with just plug and play no relay this resistor thaty. Had hids on my 12, the eBay crap ..what a nightmare


Last but most important. How the f€®k do you pump fuel in a 13 with out the. Handle on the pump clicking off Every .03 gallons!
Any one with pics of leveled trucks please post pics

Tuff Country 2" kit with shock extensions, will still have some rake.

I have had good luck with Retro Shop kits so far.

Fully insert the fuel nozzle, you have to get to the second flapper door in the filler tube.

Tuff country leveling and for hids I'm about to pull the trigger on this kit
http://bit.ly/1b4QwGP

The HId kit was recommended by another member. Looks like the key words to look for are 55watt and true canbus ballast with no added decoders and resistors. This is supposed to be a true plug and play.

Turn the fuel filler handle back and up to about the 3 or 4 o clock position it usually works. I still don't understand why they couldn't just make the filler door a little bigger like my ford had. It sounds like there hasn't been as many issues with the 14s. My dealer tried ordering a new neck but Ram already had several hundred on back order. I'm hoping that means they are addressing the issue. I think on some the two doors got molded in to far apart so the nozzle can't reach both doors unless its turned a certain way. My brothers early build 13 is the same way.

The Morimoto ballasts RetroShop uses haven't been the greatest.....

Read more from here....

There was a recall on the ballast, my replacement ballast have been flawless.

Contact Jeremy at Retro Shops or contact Retro Solutions directly for the exchange procedure.
