Is there a shifter on the floor that says 4wd high low N.????? That's a good place to start. Look under the truck is there a driveshaft going to the front diff. If still unsure take a pick of under the truck then we will know for sure. If I had to guess you have a 2wd because I don't think you would have missed the shifter in the floor.

Hi mate, I'm also in the UK (Cornwall), just sold my first lifted Ram (99 Diesel 4x4 Sport) and bought a new project, a 94 V8 Magnum 2WD, I will probably be ordering a suspension and/or body lift from the States soon, shipping is a killer but could be better with a combined order?

yeah that sounds good bro. im looking to put on 35" tyres. my mate has a hilux that has a 8 inch lift with 15 inch steels rims and mudterrain tyres. with how big the arches are came to the conclunison that they would fit the ram with a 3 inch lift. im not that mechanicaly talented so would you reckon a normal garage in the uk would fit the lift kit?
