Default ? On lifting my 2WD

If I put a 2" on the front I'll be okay to run 33's right?

since you have a 2wd truck the tires might rub wth stock rims. 4x4 trucks naturally sit a couple inches higher and with a level the 33s fit perfect.

It all really depends on the offset of your wheel. I run 33's on my 2wd with XD Addict rims with no rubbing, I even ran 35's with minor rubbing at a full turn when I hit a bump. This is all at stock height. I am putting on a 2-3" coil spacer on friday and when we did some very intense measuring we came to the conclusion that my 37's will fit with minor rubbing. God bless the wide fender wells of a dodge

Yeah the wide fenders are really nice.I have an 8" lift and I have 37x12.50x20 Nitto Trail Grapplers 20x10 Moto Metal with -20 offset.My tires stick out 4' past the fenders.

I have a 2008 2wd with the 2 1/2 in spacers with 295/60/20 which comes out to be a 34.4 in tire it does fit but it does rub at full turn even with 1/4 spacers behind rim its not to bad but the issue I found is finding a shock to fit after you lift the truck Ive spoken to reps at Rancho and they dont know of one that will meet my needs I currently have Moroe cyntrac.

Ok this one jumped out at me. I have a 2011 express 2wd and about to get a 7" cst lift. The better question is why would you dump a ton of cash into a vehicle and tear it up? A clean lookin' jacked up truck is the best lookin thing on the road.

Also 4th gen rams come stock with 33's. With a 2.5 level you can fit 35's. Tried it, doesn't rub at all at a full left and right cut.
