GUYS I AM NEW TO THIS FORUM AND ACTUALLY JUST PURCHASED MY FIRT BRAND NEW TRUCK EVER. I JUST PURCHASED A 2008 DODGE RAM 1500 SXT W/ A 4.7. I LOVE MY TRUCK. HOWEVER I ALSO LOVE TO CUSTOMIZE THINGS, I THINK ITS THE JARLEY DAVIDSON IN MY BLOOD. WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO FIRST IS GET A SET OF TIRES AND WHEELS ON MY TRUCK. I REALLY LIKE THE XD ROCKASTER WHEELS IN CHROME (18IN RIMX12.5) ON THE ALSO WANT TO PUT THEM ON A SET OF KUMHO MT KL 35 OR NITTO MUD GRAPPLER 35s. MY QUESTION FOR ALL YOU GUYS IS. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO MAKE THESE HAPPEN. CAN I GET AWAY WITH INSTALLED A LEVELING KIT AND MAYBE A SMALL BODY LIFT. I WOULD RATHER NOT DO ANY BODY MODIFICATION SUCH AS DREMELING OUT MY WHEELS SKIRTS AND FRONT BUMPER. GUYS AN HELP OR OPINIONS YOU CAN GIVE WOULD AWESOME.

and, 35's should fit fine w/ a 3 in lift, may rub a bit though, not too sure;)

i'm sure there will be others who know what they are talking about later;D

Check my gallery,

You should also take note what gears you have in the rear before doing all this and be prepared to loose some mpg

you can get away with 35's and just a front level kit, but you would be better off with a 3" body lift too.

btw...welcome to Dt, and congrats on your first new truck

You didnt mention if your truck is 4WD?

Bushwacker Flares dont require any modifications

Yes my truck is a 4X4. I live in Michigan so I don't really so te point in a 2WD truck. How do the Bushwackes attach? Rivets or double sided attachment tape
