    I love the look of the Ram Runner but don't live by any deserts so the suspension would be over kill for the odd gravel road. I was wondering if anyone use the fenders, prerunner bumper, put a 2" lift, 35"tires and widen the stance with deep dish rims and wheel spacers. Any comments on this set up would be appreciated.

    If you want a wide(r) truck, go right ahead.
    Fullsize trucks are big enough for me as is, the thought of going wider is crazy IMO.

    im in the same boat as you predator800..
    i should be getting a set of Method race double standards with red letter grabber tires on in the next month 35's with a 0 offset, we will see how far out they come, i wont do spacers as i haul my toy hauler and don't think that is wise.. I've been really debating about the fenders, my biggest concern was how to fill in the inner area where the standard trim comes off.. leaves the truck exposed and its my daily driver, year round

    I was wondering the same thing. Something would have to be fabbed up as the cold air in the winter will hit the door hinge area and make it cold. I know bushwaker flares would work with the same set up but I like the look of the ram runner fenders.

    Yeah im not a fan of the bush wackier look.. its just a totally different look than a pre runner.. I'm going to stop by some bodywork places to inquire about that..

    Keep me posted on what you find and how your wheels turn out.

    Thanks for the tip but I searched for a Chadilac and it came up negative as a user.
