Moto Metal 977 Link in gunmetal

Blackout around $140, black & milled inserts/edges around $190, gunmetal runs around $250.

I have the Moto Metal 962 w/milled accents with Toyo M/T 35's.

I dont think there's a best because it's all personal preference. 17x8.5 or 17x9 work well. Choose something lighter weight as you will feel the difference trying to turn heavy wheels and tires. I went from an 83 pound tire on stock wheels (not sure of weight) to a 73 pound tire on 21 pound wheels. I really like the DV8 882/886 which are black center and simulated or real beadlock. I ordered a set but they were backordered for 2 months so I bought mammoth boulder wheels.

Do you remember which model number the mopar lift is?
2007-2011
4dr: 77070089
2dr: 77070094

2012+ (includes driveshaft)
4dr: 77070088
2dr: 77070095

There may be AB, AC, AD, AE appended to the end based on the revision. Athens Dodge on Amazon will periodically offer these up at a significantly reduced price, but I tracked it for months before seeing it on sale. I bought mine from BAM Wholesale but you may find a site closer to you with a lower shipping cost. Shipping can be significant as these kits (at least the 2012+) come in a wooden crate.
