Default 01 Ram Offroad Package Level

I had some questions about leveling my truck. I've researched some and have come up with conflicting information.

1. Do the Offroad edition Rams have longer control arms than stock to compensate for the factory lift? If I can get someone with a regular 4wd truck to measure, I'd appreciate it.

2. If the arms are the same size, will I need to get longer arms if I plan to level?

3. I'm running 33's now with plenty of clearance on my 20's. What is the largest size I can run with these rims with a 2" level? I have seen people run 35's on the stock rims with spacers, I'm just wondering how my offset will play into it...

I'm pretty sure its a -18mm offset, since the rims stick out a little and there is an 18 in the rim description.

Factory offset on the newer rams is +18 and they do actually stick out a bit from the fenders right from the factory so my guess is thats your offset on the wheels...As for clearance im not too sure about the gen 2's as I have been wrapping my head around the 4th gen stuff for the last while
