Has anyone lifted an Ecodiesel yet? I havn't been able to get much info from lift manufacturers (understandable). But definitely figured someone would know by now if the 2014 HEMI kits are compatible or not.

The suspension parts are all the same from what I've noticed, so most kits should work. However, maybe some minor changes would have to been made. Have you asked a manufacture yet? They should have the first hand info depending on what kit you want.

PS: Welcome to the forum! :)

Thanks!
Yeah I've asked around quite a bit and it's still a little early I guess. BDS, Fabtech, Zone haven't been able to crawl under one yet. I was just hoping to find someone with firsthand experience lifting the little diesel. I'm still a few months out from being able to order one anyway. I'll definitely post any findings along the way. After test driving one yesterday I'm really optimistic about these rigs. I've been waiting for about a year to see/drive one. She was impressive.

I agree. They are still hard to find right now. I've yet to see one on a dealer lot. Hopefully by the summer I'll be set in one. :D

Since they're hard for us to find, I can understand why the kit manufactures haven't got any products out yet. But, most are pretty fast and with it not being a totally new suspension it should be a quick go over and ready to sell

The only thing I could see that would possibly be different is the exhaust routing since the diesel has the DPF and such underneath that a gas model doesn't. Other than that I wouldn't see an issue.

I've been searching for lift kits 4 less and found quite a few people suggesting BDS. I'll be looking at Rancho too. Anyone here who can give some comparison between those 2 lifts?

BDS is well respected by many. The only reason I went with Rancho over BDS back in the day was Rancho had the lift ready for shipment and BDS had theirs still in development.

I'm not a suspension guy, so I can't say pro/cons of each. I didn't have any problems with my Rancho, other than the shocks could have been better.

6 inch rough country here. Seems to be solid, no weird driveline issues and drives straight down the road. Ride is very good, firm but forgiving. Running 37x12.5x20

Great looking truck! Those Fuel Hardlines are really nice, and would have been my choice if I went aftermarket (I mounted my 35's on OE Laramie wheels).

How's the ride on the coilovers up front? I have a 6" BDS lift on my Ram but went with Bilstein 5100s instead of dropping the coin for the Fox upgrade. IMO, the Bilsteins are valved a little too soft.
