this is a copy of the post i made over o nthe dodge board. there hasn't been a single post made on over a day there....what the heck is that all about?
I'm a regular on the chevy full-sized board, but i have a dodge question. a friend of mine in the army has a 95 dodge ram 2500 with the V-10 gasser in it. he's looking to lift in and wants to know the best way to go. I know on our chevy IFS(yeah it sucks...a lot) any tires over 35" are straining it. what do ya'll think the axles can handle that come stock in this truck. or better yet, what will not rub with a 6+3 lift? i do not know what the rear gear ratio is, i do not know what tranny or T-case it has. but its a floor shift case and auto tranny.
The plan is, 6" suspension lift (springs in the rear (do dodges havea shackle flip option to remove the stock block lift?))
3" body lift
Rims and tires of the size recomended by the folks that respond to this post.
this truck is not off-roaded hard at all. it sees city and highway driving....and ocasional trips through muddy trails. never rock crawling or anything hard core at all.
What brand of lift (suspension and body) do you think would be best for my friend? do you know an estimate on cost? and what size tires/rims?
sorry for the long post. i was just trying to get as much info about the truck to you as i could so there wouldnt be too much confusion.
a big thankyou to everyone helping em out on this one. i know i am a chevy guy, but we're all off-roaders at heart.
