I have a 95 swb 1500 on 315/75/16 (about a 35" tire) with 3" skyjacker coils up front and an add a leaf in the rear, pro comp rs 9000 shocks bought it all for around $350 sepratly from ebay (coils) and summit racing (add a leaf and shocks) you could also get coil spacers instead and save some money

Thank you MoparMadness, I will do some checking for seperate parts and see what I can come up with as well. That rough country set up is looking pretty good.

I wish I would have went taller (but any taller with the suspension and you have to change the pitman arm and control arms) im thinking about adding a body lift

i would just get a 2.5inch leveling kit thats what i have on my 98 dodge 1500 ext cab short bed and i have 315-70-17 pro comp all terrains, i had no clearance issues only if i turned the wheel too far the tires would rub on the radius bars so i adjusted my steering stops out so they would no longer rub

dont know if this helps but my old 98 1500 only had a 2 inch spacer up front and a 2 inch block in the back and I had 315 75 R16's on it (thats a 35) truck looked good too.
