The original long arm system for 2nd gen Ram trucks, developed in 1997 by Extreme Suspensions for Dick Cepek. This kit has been used on thousands of trucks with excellent results. By using long arms, your lifted truck will ride better on the highway and have more suspension travel. Short arms are not acceptable to use with more than 7" suspension lift because of their operating angle at ride height and how poorly the truck handles with the arms in that position. Plus the short arms give you a horrible ride quality and no suspension travel. Long arms fix all of those problems and give your truck better-than-stock handling characteristics, with articulation like you've never experienced in a Ram truck.
These are the original Cepek 2nd gen long arms, with a couple of updates.
1) These use standard bushings, so you will be able to replace the bushings later on down the road. The original Cepek bushings were a custom size and are no longer available.
2) The brackets are an updated design that is stronger, however they bolt on in the same place.
3) The powdercoat is satin black rather than gunmetal gray.
This long arm setup is manufactured by Dodge Off Road, but it's not a Dodge Off Road long arm kit. If you want something stronger with more options, check out our other listings. This is a short run on a budget-friendly long arm setup. The brackets are 3/16" steel, the arms are 1.75" OD x .120" wall, and the bushings are 2" OD. These are all quality parts, and worked very well for many years on thousands of 2nd gen Dodge trucks. The arms are non-adjustable. Long arm box kit includes all hardware needed to bolt the brackets to the frame; you will reuse your factory control arm hardware at the axle. The arms are "one size fits most," built around a 6" suspension height. They will work on trucks with 5" lift up to 10" lift and still maintain proper axle position. These only fit 2nd gen trucks - 1994-2001 1500 models, and 1994-2002 2500/3500 models.
