Default New Tires!! And install info.

Infrequent poster/frequent browser here, wanted to let you guys know what I did here because I have seen alot of questions about this setup on other trucks. This is what I know worked on MY truck.

2.25" lift by cranking torsion bars (ride is very slightly stiffer but not much) Also, for the record, new torsion keys are a scam(let the infighting begin).

1" lift in rear by way of added load spring.

Stock offset rims, my truck is an '03 though the wheels I have are from an '07.

With this set up, I am now running Toyo Open Country M/T's 35"x12.5" R20s.

NO SPACERS NEEDED, no rubbing even at full lock.

I am actually closer to rubbing in the rear, I can barely get a finger inbetween the tire and wheel well but it works.

Let me know what you guys think of the truck!

Looks great and love the tires. Since yours doesn't rub it just shows us all that our trucks are similar but so different too.

Looks great. I have a 2011 and need to get the front up...I am gonna wrench on the torsion adjustment and see what I get.

And, like you, I wanna keep stock rims...I love them.

Do we have torsion bars on 09+ rams? I thought we had to do spacers or leveling shocks?
I love the clean lines of white rams. I saw one like yours the other day and drove around it a couple times because it just looked so good. It didn't even have 35's so I can't imagine how good yours looks in person!

There are not torsion bars on 4th gens... leveling shocks are your best bet.
