Default looking to lift my dodge

Well since tax time is about to be coming up, I am looking at lift kits, My goal is 37x13-17 Toyo Open Country M/T. I am running 305-70-17 right now with no rubbing. So with a 6" lift could I run the tires i want with no rubbing? This is a DD/ toy hauler, and sometime i go pull ppl out of the mud.

Feed back and pics would be great

Yup, with a 6" lift you should have no problem with the tire height but going to a 13" wide tire may cause some rubbing inside at full steering lock.

Your 305 tires are somewhere around 12" wide, probably 2/10ths over that.

Remember, if you are using a mud and snow tire, the actual tire width is usually a bit more than the designated number would lead you to believe. For instance, a Toyo Open Country M/T in a 37X13.5R17 is actually 14.6" wide.

So check your inside clearance!
