Subject: How much lift?
IP: Logged

Message:
I am new to this sight and I have a 99 Durango and I want to run the Trxus sts' on it. I would like to know how much lift I would need to run the 36x14.5 and if I could run them with the stock rims or if I would need a different backspacing to keep them from rubbing on the frame. Also does anyone have any experience with these tires.

You would need to do a solid axle conversion to fit tires that big. Why do you want to go so big?

The biggest that I have seen that is practical are 35's. While going bigger can and has been done, you will probably end up with a vehicle that is more show than go. Not only that, you would have a very unstable road ride.

Going to 35's would probably cost at least $10k if you could do much of the work yourself (which is doubtful). It would probably cost you between $15 - $20K for the tires, wheels, front axle and lift parts, rear lift parts, new gearing, new transfer case likely, engine mods, etc, etc, etc...

5.5" tuff country suspension +
3" body lift will clear them but say goodbye to hub bearings, balljoints, oh yeah and your front diff if you plan on wheeling. I guess you don't plan on wheeling since you are going with STS's though. The Vagina of tires :P

Hey 4wdakota thanks for the info on the tires. What do you suggest I get for good wheeling tires. I would like to go with something around 35" and fairly wide tire. What about 35" 12.5 bfg's I was offered a good deal on a set. As far as the lift should I go with the tuff country or the rancho. I appreciate the advice seeing as how I am very new to the whole wheeling thing.

Personally I'd go with the 3" Rancho cranked up to 4" along with a 3" body lift and run some 35x12.50 BFGs. Depending on how much you wheel you can go with either the A/T or M/T.

If you get a swamper or another tire that is wider than 12.50" then get the 5.5" tuff country lift and 3" body lift so you can clear them better.

The STS's are an A/T and are made more for the street. They only do good in sand. If you like mud but want a good long lasting street swamper then get 35x12.50 or 35x14.50 Super Swamper SSRs. They are good for 30-40K miles and are one of the better riding swampers.

This was posted on another subject about durango's:

Dont buy Tuff County lifts for durangos.. They are crap.. The first time you hit the brakes going down the hwy you will bend and brake the lift brackets... Tuff County is unwilling to replace anything even tho it was bought with a LIMITED life time warenty.. I can only see one right way to correct this problem on my 99 5.9L SLT. That will be to put a dana 60 solid axel up front...
