Message:
i have a 200 2wd cc. the tires are going out so it is time to go bigger and better. i am considering the pa 3inch lift. wich should allow me 31's or possibly 32's from what i have read. however i have the 15x7 rim will this make a diffrence in the tire clearence since everything that i have read is on a 15x8. Also how do i tell what size differental i have. The truck is used and has no paperwork.

Look in your glove box. There should be a sheet inside that has been laminated to the bottom, that'll tell you the rear dif size. I have the 3" pa lift and I love it. I ordered 31/10.50R15 Xterrains on 15x8 black rockcrawlers from 4wheelparts.com, and they are SLOW! I am still waiting, been about 3 weeks! Its killing me. But I called and ordered, and I got a good deal.

Waiting for my XTerrains!

You can use the stock rims if you arent planning on a suspension lift. Thats why I bought rims, cause I wanna get the 3" Fabtech lift. Stocks will work with the body lift. As for the rear diff, I would say its the 8.25. I cant remember for sure, to lazy to go out and look in my glove box right now, but thats what I think it is.

Waiting for my XTerrains!

You can fit 31's and 32's on those 15x7 rims. That's if the dealer or shop owner won't give u a hard time. I tried to get Mud Terrains at Bridgestone once in the past, at 33 inches, and they refused to sell me them on my 15x8 inch rims because they were too wide. So i ditched them and went to bfgoodrich, sold me them in a jiffy. :) I'm pretty sure you have 8.25 by the way :) The new designed dakota, which i've focused on since it came out, mostly had the 8.25, unless someone threw something else under there.

You can run a stock wheel on either the Fabtech or CST suspension kit with a simple billet adapter. I wanted to retain the stock wheels and used a billet adapter that pushed the wheels out about 1". The adapters have over 65,000 miles on them and not once have I had a single problem with them. It's a pretty good alternative to purchasing new wheels if you ask me. I've had the truck in Mexico and used it to prerun and chase and I've got a few battle scars that prove it's been driven hard. If you are avoiding a suspension lift kit because of the aftermarket wheel necessity consider the adapters.

Aloha
