2wd leveling kit and 35s? urgent..
 
Hey guys, I ordered an ebay leveling kit for my 2001 dodge ram 4x2. I was under the Impression I could fit 35s under there with no problem. They will be on xd series wheels, so they should be good turning radius wise. I just wanna make sure they will fit before i go buy them tomorrow... What say you?? Otherwise the truck Is stock. Please help, I told the guy i would be there in the morning tomorrow, and I dont want to purchase some expensive paper weights!

If it's a 1500 they won't work. You might....and I mean might get a 285/75 which is about a 33x11.5 tire in there properly.

There some details missing. How much lift does your kit provide? Is just a front spacer?

It'd be tight on a 2500 but has been done...just to prove a point which is stupit if the tires rub when you turn.

In perspective 5 inches of properly installed lift is right for a 4x4 with 35 inch tires, and your truck sits about 2 inches lower than a standard 4wd truck. You can get a 33 inch tire under a 4x4 without lifting it.

it says it will provide 3 inches of lift for the front, and i got 1 inch blocks for the back.

I went to get the wheels and tires today. and luckily the lug spacing did not match up! lol so i didnt get them. im look around for some 33s then. thanks for your input man.

im gonna put the level on today. i will post some before and after pictures in here later!

We like pics! That's a great way to get rep!

With 3" and an aftermarket wheel I think you could fit a 295 or 305 metric tire the would measure to be around 34.5" theoretically (I wanna say 305/70/17))

i got it all on, but i didnt have time for after pics, so i will have to get some tomorrow. the front end came up exactly 3 inches! i didnt put the rear blocks in tho because it seemed level to me! ill see what yall think tomorrow!! the springs went in and out real easy too! idk what all the hype about having a hard time with those was that i read on line?

ya it depends on wheel and tire selection. I had 34" tire with a 2.5" spacer with no rub at all on a factory 20" ram wheel and went to a procomp 15x10 and a 33" tire and have slight rub at full turn when you hit a bump.
