Welcome to Mike Demski's "Lifted Ram Page!"
Dedicated to those interested in a suspension lift or body lift kit for their Dodge Ram truck: The purpose of this page is to provide central information and illustrations of various "lifted Ram" configurations. You will find information and pictures of lifted and heavily modified 1/2 ton, 3/4 ton, and 1 ton Dodge Ram trucks.
Note:  I resurrected these pages in their original form as a tribute to Mike, who died in 2004.   I had archived the information in early 2000 when Mike felt that it was becoming dated.  Sometime during or after my 2000 Alaska trip, these pages disappeared.   Mike's Lifted Ram Page was originally created in the early days after the introduction of the new 1994 Dodge Ram when lift kits were very rare and crude by today's standards.   Mike and the people on this page were among the first to modify their Rams and post the results on the web.  Consider them to be the pioneers who contributed much to the Ram community in the early days, and paved the way for the off-the-shelf lift kits you can easily purchase now.   Mike, we miss you!   Dave

Jeff Gary says: "This is my 1991 Dodge Ram pickup. It has four wheel drive and a 4 inch lift. All of this is powered by the tried and true 5.2L 318 Dodge V8 engine running through an automatic transmission, and a Dana rear end. The engine breathes through a K&N filtercharger and is fired by 8 Bosch Platinum spark plugs. All of this is riding on top of four 31X10.5 BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A radial tires. Above the cab rests a Lund Moon Visor to block the sun and add the cool looking marker lights. This summer I also added a roll bar with four lights and a 5 ft. CB antenna for my Cobra 19 Ultra CB radio. For added flair, I also have a Jack on a tractor from Jack in the Box hanging from my rear view mirror. Since I live in a somewhat bad neighborhood, I also have an Avital car alarm installed which I won at a CMMA car stereo competition in Lubbock a few years back." Photo   HomePage

Keoni van't Groenewoutike talks about his 1997 Ram Club-Cab with a 3" Rancho stage two suspension kit with Rancho 9000's, dual adjust in cab remote, 33x12.5 Thornbirds, 15x10 Centerline Hellcats, Smittybuilt sure-step side bars, Gibson exhaust, Mopar performance engine computer, and  Bushwacker fender flares (next day off project). "The last mod was only for looks and to give it a look all it's own for a RAM 4x4. I applied the SS\T dual racing stripes. I had to have the stripes made since Mopar only makes the stripes for single cabs." Photo 1   Photo 2   Photo 3   Photo 4  Photo 5
