    i just bought a 2001 dodge ram 2500 and hade a few questions.
    it sits fairly tall but i dont think it has an actual lift on it. does anyone know about their factory offroad lifts and where to look? i want to run 35's but a normal lift wont fit if it has the factory one. thanks for your time.

    if it has the realy big fender gaps between the fenders then you can go 35" tires with no lift and possible tiny bit of rubbing. i have seen it done and bolted them on my self to other trucks like it.

    My wife's 98 Dodge 2500 looks like it's got a 3" lift from the factory. It clears 33's with only minor rubbing in tight parking turns. It's also a money pit POS

    only the 1500 OFFROAD addition came with a lift.
    the 2500 & 3500 series have a taller frame and basically just sit taller.

    i have a 1500 with a 5" suspension and a 3" body lift and i fit 37" MTRs no problem.
    on a 2500 with just 3" you should be able to fit 35"s easily, i have seen some guys run 35s stock with minor rubbing.


    FYI my lifted 1500 is just a hair taller then a stock 2500.

    Dodges arent junk, they just have their quirks like all other makes, including GMs.

    I don't think you can really call a Dodge junk, but they used to be junk, and I think they still suffer somewhat from that reputation. I would never buy one, but to each his own.

    My brother has 35 mtr's on his 01 dodge. The only lift he has is a leveling kit in the front.
