PRODUCT OVERVIEW:

Carli's 2.5 Performance Long Arm System for the 2012-2013 Dodge Ram is Jack-of-all trades long arm system. Sure, the Pintop rules the bang-for-the-buck but converting these trucks to long arms opens a whole new world of ride quality and corrected geometry. Pair the balanced suspension travel (6” up and 6” down) with a 2.5” King for which we developed a new, long-arm specific, piston and tuning profile and you’ll wonder how you ever lived with short arms. This is a very balanced on-road system and will slay any trail to which you point it. If you’re not seeing daylight under your tires on the daily, this is the perfect kit.

KIT DETAILS:

With the release of the 3″ Long Arm, comes the Long-Arm equipped Systems. The decision has been made to discontinue the older, short-arm variation of the Performance 2.5″ in favor of a Long-Arm equipped, extended travel version at which you’re looking now. This system requires customers to cut off the factory control arm mounts in favor of the Carli Drop Brackets to house our internally gusseted, fully fabricated Long Arm System. These arms are over 50% longer than the factory arms boasting 3/16” construction, internal gusseting, extended travel capability, more linear travel stroke and a better ride quality given their length and position parallel to the ground.

To take advantage of the Long Arm’s capability, we’ve included a 6.25” tall, slide over-design shock tower to ease installation and accommodate the longer (12” Travel) shocks. Included 1” front bump stop drops and limit straps ensure customers can dish repetitive beatings to their King 2.5” shocks with confidence of full & safe utilization of the shock’s travel. In a short arm truck, it’s not uncommon to see 7” of up-travel (metal to metal) and 3” of down-travel. The combination of the long arm system’s 6.25” tall tower and 1” bump drop allows for our 12” travel shock and shifts the front axle’s operating range down 1”; the result, 3” more down-travel when compared to a short-arm system only sacrificing 1” of up-travel. This is a far more balanced setup spec’d with 6” of up travel and 6” of down-travel ensuring the front end maintains contact over rough terrain.

WHEEL AND TIRE:
This system will fit up to a 37”x12.5” tire with on 17”-18” wheels with 5-5.25” of backspacing. If considering Fiberglass Fenders, a 4.5” Backspacing on a 9” Wide wheels will fit up to a 37×13.5” wide tire. This system was tuned with 17” wheels on, 37” Toyo M/T at 40F/35R. The more rubber, the better the small bump compliance will be at proper inflation pressures. The ride will firm up as you go larger in wheel diameter.
