Question Best 2wd level/tire combo

What is the best 2wd level/tire combo? I see people using spacers, coils, etc and bilstiens don't work for 2wd apparently. I do mostly road driving so I would like to keep a good ride.

Next, best tire/size for the level that has low noise levels?


Time to get rid of the awful rake and it calls for bigger tires!


Opinions much appreciated.

if you don't like the raked look don't install a rear spacer just get the front spacer of your choice designed for a 2wd as some kits will not work. Adjustable Blisteins will not work on the 2wd. As for tires what are you looking to accomplish cosmetically? I like my Nitto Trail Grapplers they're badass looking and not that loud, My definition of loud might be different than yours lol I have 2 12's in my cab and exhaust so I tend to like to be heard... Niitto Terra Grapplers are nice quiet tires from what I hear... It all depends on what you want to accomplish, keep us posted...

Thanks I appreciate the response. I deff want to level the front 2" just not sure what the best bet is to keep a nice ride . I know ready lift makes a level for 2wd and was leaning towards that.

I was hoping to fit 35x12.5 on without rubbing so we'll see.
I'm between the trail grappler, terra grappler, and general grabber at2.


I have a magnaflow 14" so I don't mind a lil noise, but I will be doing a lot of highway driving so I'm trying to get the most aggressive look with as little road noise as possible.


Only god knows why ram makes a sport model without the sport hood, but it was the only black sport in my area so now I'm trying to beef it up a bit. I already have Mopar fiberglass tonneau, chrome side steps, & stubby antenna.

Have you looked at the Procomp Extreme AT ot MT tires? I have 35 X 20s ATs, nice quite tire. Little over 10,000 miles on them, hardly worn.
