The original long arm system for Ram trucks, developed in 1997 by Extreme Suspensions for Dick Cepek. This kit has been used on thousands of trucks over the last 21 years 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 5" 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 updated Cepek long arms are very similar to the original arms, except with a few notable upgrades:
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 budget-friendly long arm setup that competes with BDS, Skyjacker, Fabtech, and other cookie-cutter setups, but provides much more suspension travel and a better ride because of the better geometry. The brackets are 3/16" steel, the arms are 1.75" OD x .120" wall, and the bushings are 2-5/8" OD with 1" DOM sleeves. These are all quality parts, and worked very well for many years on thousands of 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 to work with a 6" suspension height. They will work on trucks with 5" lift up to 10" lift and still maintain proper axle position. These fit 3rd and 4th gen 2500/3500 trucks only - 2003-2012 year models, and the 1500 Mega Cab 4x4 models from 06-08.
