I dont rub the frame with my 33x11.5's but I think the earlier models 98-99 did have a different frame config and 11.5" wide tires did rub the frame at full steering lock.

would a 3" body lift clear 33's on stock rims?
I think the 3" BL will clear most 33's under 11.5" width. You may still benefit from minor trimming if you fully articulate or go wider though. Not to worry though as trimming is easy and pretty unnoticable.

my rig is still going strong with the 33's and a bunch more offroad abuse. I did lose a fender flare recently, but it appears not related to the lift. Occasionally when backing up over unevern terrain at speed, I get some minor rub on the front of the front wheel well, but it is not a real problem.

ahh, but the increased amount of room for the tires means more room for suspension travel, ive seen a guy run 35 boggers on a truck that looked like it could barely fit 33s, he flexed, kept going, long story short......he ended up buying a new fender and tire.............i could proabably fit a skinny 35 on my dak, but i dont want the chance of screwin more stuff up

My Body lift has benefited me in many ways- Approach and departure angles are now a lot better and my side steps are about an inch above the bottom of my frame rails. When I'm offroading now, I don't worry about tree stumps or rocks hitting my side steps like I was before, obviously the body lift allowed bigger tires which got me a tad more clearance for the differentials as well.

My truck isn't a street queen by any means, she plows all winter, she tows my boat all summer, hauls trash all year long, and gets me and my family to my camp all year long as well (unmaintained logging trails). She's scratched and has 1 dent, but she cleans up nice!

A TS lifted Durango is not limited in it's suspension travel in any way, even with 33's. It would not work for 35's, but the front diff on the Durango or Dak cannot handle 35's for very long (lot of pics of blown diffs from those that tried it on this and other forums to prove the point). So I stick with my contention that the TS lift is all you need if you are lifting to go offroad.

If you are building a street queen, a body lift might be appropriate. Seems like alot fewer people are building gas guzzling road queens nowadays. I wonder why?

Torsion bar lift with longer shackles. Read the thread and all your questions will be answered.

what about using wheel spacers? would that eliminate the need for different wheels?
