Re: Lift and Tire size question
The dropped pitman arm isn't really needed with a 3" lift on something with wider axles like a FS truck, the geometry just isn't affected as much, although you ~might~ experience a little bump steer if the angle becomes too great. The driveshafts/t-case shouldn't be a problem either. The SWB Jeep you lifted had a driveshaft the length of a Ram's front link bars and any change in ride ht was gonna cause vibration. The wheelbase of a full size truck lets you get away with alot more lift than on our tiny Jeeps.
