Is the factory "lift" on the Offroad simply from new coils? If so, the 5" lift kit will not lift you any farther than a standard Ram since the coils are replaced, unless there is a kit specific to the Offroad.
I doubt that you will fit 37's. My 3"/3" combo barely clears my 35" Swampers. In fact they tear up the sheetmetal when I am really flexing it. I suppose that the 5" kit pushes the front axle forward and my problem there would go away, but in the rear, I am chewing up the front of the fenders.
Just something to think about. It may just be my truck (sagging and such after 115,000 miles and hard wheeling)
The 5 inch kit is the same for the Off Road as it is for anything else.
Any of the lift kits that use replacement coils instead of spacers are the same. Anything that uses spacers will not work on the Off Road (ie. Rancho)
You dont think that 36s or 37s will clear at all with a 5 inch lift? The way that my Off road looks right now with the factory 1 inch suspension lift I can easily fit 33s and I think if I went to a 3 inch which would raise my truck 2 inches from where it is now that I could fit 35s. They might rud if I got into some real hard wheeling but thats about it.
Are the fender opennings the problem? Not big enough for 37's?
If you get the right wheel/tire combo then you should be okay with 36's. 37's may work, but you'll be limiting flex.
I am running the 35x12.50 SSRs on 15x10" wheels and that sticks them out fairly far. Since you have to go with 16" wheels due to calipers, they will have more backspacing (typically) and thus not stick out as far and may not have the same amount of rubbing.
I used to run both 285/75/16 BFG ATs and 315/75/16 Big-O XTs on 16x8" wheels with my 3" lift only. Had minor rubbing with the XTs, nothing significant at all.
I just could not afford to buy 16" tires and wheels and did not want to have to fight to find 16" tires in the boonies if I needed to get home, so I switched to 15's.
This is part of why I was asking about the tire sizes and required rim width a couple days ago. The tires I am looking at are all 16s and most of the require 16x10s. I am worried that the 10 inch wide rims will be an issue. I dont think that any of the Swamper 12.5 wide tires will fit on an 8 inch rim. At least they say you need a 10.
I was planning to having limiting straps installed with the lift just so you know..
