I just purchased last week an 2019 Rebel. Bad ass truck. Anyway I would like to level it. What is out there. I found Rough Country has a spring stuffer. Not sure about that?

If you want to take out the front rake I used the MotoFab 2.5” spacers for the front end. They worked well and leveled it right out. I did look at RC’s as well but settled on MotoFab. The installation took me about 2.5 hours for both tires.

Take it to the Dealer. That's what the warranty is for. Congrats on your purchase and welcome to the forum.

I am the dealer. I’m a dealership tech. Mopar doesn’t show a lift for the 2019 yet. My local 4x4 shop states the spacers for the 06 to 18 old body style fit the new DT body style. Also found on YouTube a 4x4 also stated same thing they used a old. DS body spacers on the DT body. Said coil spring suspension is the same. Good news for me as I have a 2 inch spacer kit for the DS body.

Let me get this straight. You are the Dealer. You are the Dealer's tech. You are asking us the untrained and you are the trained expert, how to fix something you not only sell but have been factory trained on how to fix a Rebel problem. I think I see why we have so many problems.

He’s not trying to fix anything, he’s asking about an aftermarket leveling kit? That’s not something carried by the dealer. He’s asking for advice from other users with experience in aftermarket parts? There’s far more experience installing aftermarket parts and modifying vehicles in the general population than all the factory techs combined. The service factory parts for the most part.

The dealership doesn’t sell level kits. Mopar has not released any lift kits either. Mopar is spending there time and money on JL Wrangler kits research and JT Gladiator lifts.

Dang Red give the guy a break lol. He’s a Tech for Jeep and yes they are Mopar but they (Mopar) haven’t released a level kit that I am aware of yet. And if they did it would be too expensive to buy and install anyway! Sorry, had to state the obvious here. So he came here like all of us to seek advice and pearls of wisdom from guys like you! Shouldn’t have to take any flack, just good sound novice advice. Just my humble option.

Just a quick update. I had a set of 2 inch upper strut spacers for the old 2018 and earlier truck sitting around. I installed them. Truck is pretty much level maybe a slight rake. FYI I measured my truck before I did the front spacer and a 2019 Laramie. Mine measured from center of wheel to bottom of fender opening.
Mine F 22 1/4 R 24 1/2
Laramie F 21 1/2 R 24
I’m thinking when Ram states additional 1 inch clearance it maybe compared to a standard 4x4 or the ground clearance under the truck.

That’s a 2 inch level kit in front only. I turned the tires black wall out.

Thank you!

Are those stock wheels and tires? I have a 2018 so the stock wheels and tires look a little different. I want to put 35s on.

For 19 yes. The tires are Goodyear Duratrac. 275/70/18. The white letters were on the outside. I turned the black walls outside

I just purchased a 2019 Rebel w/o air ride.

The factory lift from dodge, is that spacer system that has to be removed prior to adding additional height? So when looking at leveling kits, you need to factor in the other inch to order the correct height?

Mine did not have a spacer. The come with Bilstien shocks and a different spring which I believe is what is used for the extra height.
