2" HBS and 295/60R20 trail grapplers.
 
I finally bit the bullet and spent a lot of money I picked up some Trail Grapplers in 295/60R20 and a 2" Hell Bent Steel leveling kit. Everything went pretty smoothly until...the last bolt of course. On the drivers side control arm we were taking out the bolt holding the shock to it and it was seized inside the bushing. Thinking the part would be readily available and it was the only option if I wanted to move forward with my mods we destroyed it to get it out. come to find out now I need to buy the entire lower control arm assembly! From dodge they are $350. It is pretty frustrating that a job that was supposed to be done in a day is now lasting a week because I need to order more parts. Anyways I have some pictures for you all because I know that's what everybody likes.

looks good, was that the biggest size you could have went up on without putting a kit on it

knappk6 03-24-2012 07:18 PM

Im pretty sure the 295's were the widest i could go and i put a 1/4" wheel spacer in there. the tire just barely clears the upper control arm.

knappk6 03-24-2012 09:42 PM

Well i Just ordered a new control arm. Cant wait to get my truck running again!
