Carli Suspension's Backcountry 2.0 system for the 2014-2018 Ram 2500 4x4 Hemi is designed for people seeking the best ride on and off-road on a budget.
This suspension system is perfect for those that want to have a little dirt-road fun in their 7,500lb truck without losing the on-road ride quality or usability for which the truck was designed. You’re no longer limited to the low-speed offroad; Gravel roads become uninteresting as you can drive them at speed with one hand on the wheel. Utilizing Fox 2.0” Remote Reservoir Shocks, we’ve developed a shock tune that delivers all around comfort and ride quality designed for on-road, in town, highway, towing/hauling as well as slow to mid speed off road use; think of them as a more capable Commuter. The Fox 2.0s boast extruded aluminum construction with a clear anodizing for corrosion resistance, are fully rebuildable and are built with hour-glass bushings in the rod-ends. Fox builds these shocks with their legendary red shock oil that flows well down to -55° F.

Carli's Signature Shock Tuning for the 2014-2018 Power-Wagon Ram trucks. 2.0″ Remote Reservoir Shocks provide users with a comfortable, entry level off-road capability paired with a controlled, vastly improved on-road ride.
Your truck will sit 1” higher in the front (cab configuration dependent) with a touch more suspension travel than the factory platform thanks to the taller, lighter rate coil springs. The rear Carli Coil Springs will drop by ½”-1” to level the truck while upping the rear suspension capacity to a respectable 2,000lbs.
The additional inch of front lift and off-road oriented application call for a better track bar to handle the new-found increased off-road abilities. This system includes an Adjustable Track Bar to recenter the axle and provide a stronger link with less deflection for the lifted application. Also included are Carli’s Radius Arm Drop Brackets to drop the pivot point of the dual pivot Power Wagon arms, alleviate diagonal spring pressures (ensure no bow in the coil springs) and allow full adjustment of the factory caster bolt.
WHEEL AND TIRE INFO:
This system will fit up to a 37” tire when utilizing wheels that are no more than 9” wide with 5.75-6” of backspacing. A 12.5” wide should fit with no rubbing on the factory radius arm and only minor trimming required, while a 13.5” will require more trimming and slightly more offset to fit properly. 35” tires will fit with VERY minimal, if any trimming. We Recommend running a 17”/18” diameter wheel for optimal ride quality (more rubber = better small bump compliance) on a 35”-37” E-rated tire running 45psi front, 40psi rear when unloaded.
