there aren't any suspension lifts for the 2000+ that are worth a darn. I'm sure knobby will chime in and elaborate on that further. There are talks of rancho coming out with a 2.5" lift in november but that has been pushed back for the last year and a half. As of right now, about the only way your gonna get some altitude is with a body lift.

Dishwalla , you keep forgetting you have a 2WD.
If , in fact the question was for a 2WD , then yes the Fabtec kit is a quality lift. If the original question is for a 4WD , born2steel21 is right.

performance accessories is pretty much the body lift of choice around here...you can find them at 4wheelparts.com, central4wd.com, or numerous other online 4x4 and truck accessory retailers.

Well the only 2 suspension lifts available for 2000+ Dakota 4x4's are CRAP! plain and simple they end up costing you way more then anyone in there right mind would want to spend.

The body lift for the 2000+ Dakotas part number is #PER60043 and like Born said available almost everywhere.

Amanda if you live anywhere near D/FW Texas I'm sure we could help you put it on at one of our meetings. Infact we're going to be replacing alot of stuff on my truck this Saturday.

Knobby did you get a local DFW club going to help you fix your truck? You are smart! After all the problems you have had I would think you would have your own maint crew by now.

Keep up the good work bud!

Why do you think I got this club together?

I'm sick of doing all the work.. If I can get them to think they are part of a "club" but really all they do is work on my truck... It's a win win situation for me ;-)

now if only I can get them to pay for the fixes ;-)

hehe.. well back to work :( just spent $600 on the parts I'm replacing on Saturday.

I just heard but do not know if it is true but.

Are they changing the front suspension on the Dak's in 04? I heard that they were and that no one is going to support the 00 - 03 dakota's for lift's.

I am not in the market for a lift but thought that was interesting.

Could it be true. Heard it at 4wheel parts so it probably is not true but it was a customer that said it.

I heard the same thing about a month ago. The 04's definately will be different and I'll almost guarantee that there will be no lifts for us. Oh well, doesn't matter, I have decided to get rid of this heap anyways. I'm going back to a ram. I would have never gotten this thing if I had known that there were no gears, lifts, or performance parts for us!

OPINIONS ARE LIKE....WELL, YOU KNOW THE REST!!

Amanda, the cheapest place that i found for a body lift is summitracing.com they don't charge that much for shipping and they are a reputible company. If you want to know what tires you can run and what would look good, i suggest a set of 32x11.50x15's on 15x10 rims, just crank the torsion bars up front a little to raise the frontend a bit and they will clear just fine.
