Default Question about lift ?

I want to put 35" tires on my 2010 Dodge 2500 TRX4 but I've been told that all I need is a 2" leveling kit then I was told I need a 4" lift kit . Anyone have the answer?

You have a 2500 so you should be alright with just the leveling kit. Your truck sits higher from the factory then the 1500s. If you had a 1500 then a 4" lift would be the way to go to fit 35" tires.

You can fit 35's on a 2500 stock.
If you have 35's on stock wheels you will rub a little bit on the lower control arms(with or with out a leveling kit)
A leveling kit will give the truck a much better stance but your TRX4 already have a +1" spring in the front over any other model 2500.
As far as I know you cant just use a leveling spacer on your truck becuase its already a higher spring but you could use a leveling spring, you would only see +1" from where your truck sits now if you got a +2" leveling kit
