Default 37s with a 6" lift?

Hey guys,
In the past I have owned a 1999 v10 ram with a 6" fabtech and 3" body lift and I had 38" super swampers. It looked great... but then I sold it.

Well I just bought a 2005 hemi 5.7 2wd and lowered it with the 2 front 4 rear mcgaughy lowering kit and put the srt10 22" wheels. I really like how the truck looks but miss the lifted look
I would like to take the lowering kit off and sell the wheels and maybe fit some 38s under the fenders. Is this possible with a 6" lift or do I also need to buy a body lift...

Any pixs would be great I have searched with no luck


My old truck:
Thanks,
Ary

Welcome aboard! I am sitting on 6" Pro Comp (suspension only) with 37 X 13.5 on 17's. I rubbed at first and we had to cut out some of the inner fender well and bump out the front bumper with phenalic spacers....now she's done. No more scraping.
I hope this helps.

If you want to do this, you will still probably have to do a small body lift too.

Paris, love that picture!

With the 2wd you are definitely going to have to do a body lift also. Fabtech is out of business now but I know procomp makes a pretty good 2wd kit.

Definatly the body lift. I have a 10" suspension lift on my 2wd and my 37" tires still rub at full turn.

Thanks for all the info guys! Paris I love how your truck looks. I want my lift to look the same but the only thing is my truck is a 2wd and your truck is a 4wd. I know the 4wd is a bit higher from factory right?.... If this is true I think I will need to use a body lift to clear the tires.
Thanks for all the feedback guys,
Ary

I saw a 2006 crew cab yesterday with 38's and talked with the owner. He has a 4" suspension lift at a 3" body lift on his truck. Said he had no problems at all.
