Default Can I fit 37?
I have an 06 Ram 2500 cummins mega cab. I put a Rancho 4" lift on it (4 front 2 in block rear. and was told that I can fit 35 inch tires. My question is, can I drop the 2 inch "leveling" spacers in the front and fit a 37 under there in the front? and if I can do that will that raise my front end to much and give me the "cali bro lift" look? I DONT WANT THAT!! Thanks in advance!

What components does your Rancho 4" lift consist of? Did it come with new springs for the front end or did it use spacers? That will determine what you can do up front. However I would still likely advise against adding 2" to it as a 6" short arm kit won't ride nice at all and you likely will be nose high (with Cali lean) with that setup.

What wheels are you running now? You could potentially fit 37's on your current lift.

My lift has new coil springs in front, Bilstein 5100, 2 in rear block. It is the Rancho RS6579B Rancho kit. I don't want the cali lean look at all lol, but I also don't want a crappy ride...my tires are cupped a little in the rear so i bounce around like a fart in a skillet

I am running stock wheels with 2" bump out spacers and 35".

I thought mega cabs and 2500s could fit 37s with a leveling kit with the right wheels.

What have you heard about it? I have a carli 3" level and am looking to 35s or 37s. Any idea on offsets and possible trimming?

I went ahead and went with 37".... you can fit a 35" with level up front. I have a 4" lift and I rub really hard with 37. I trimmed my running board back ( still looks stock) but when I turn I run hard on the front bumper. I thought about throwing 2" coil spacers in but found out with a short arm kit and putting that much on top of it will make it waver a lot driving and very easy to overcorrect In weather. So all in all you need 6" to run 37" with no clearance issues.

Also I would talk to a 4 wheel store on spacing and such for wheels cause I run stock wheels but also have 2" spacers. If I didn't have those I would hit my control arms.... I know aftermarket wheels can cure that but I like my stock

Thats the thing. If i went 37s theyd probably be on 18s so id be going with new rims. I kinda had my offsets and everything figured out for 35s. Never really gave 37s much thought bc i thought theyd be too big
