Trailmaster makes a 2" leveling kit for the front of your truck. I'm pretty sure that you have coil springs in the front of your truck so the leveling kit would just be coil spacers. with that you would be able to put bigger tires on.

With that wimpy little 6 cyl engine, the largest tires you shoud use are about 29".

I just got the 2.5 inch rough country lift. it's a leveling kit for the front and small blocks for the rear w/ new shocks. It was $150 and worth it. The rear shocks are a lot stiffer than the factories, but I feel that it makes the truck feel more solid over the road.

I have an 06 dakota w/ V6 and it looks good w/ the small lift and larger tires. I got 265/75/16's. It is night and day from the low hanging frame and front bumper.

It's a 2006. It's the ugliest Dakota ever made.
Why would you lift it? To make it more visible?
More visible is definitely something you don't want.
Then more people would see you in it, which would mean that many more people laughing at you.

Daystar makes a 2" leveling kit for the front that is much better than the trailmaster kit. It will allow you to put on 32's 265/75/16
