    Building up a Dodge Ram

    Hey boys,

    I'm driving a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 with 5.2L engine. Its currently sitting on 31s but want to go bigger. The problem I'm having is tire rub. When I turn the wheel all the way to the right the front driver's side tire rubs the frame. Is there any way to resolve this problem?

    You could always just turn out the steer stops but you would loose alittle turning radius. That is what I did on my YJ

    You'll need about 3" of lift to fit 33's on that Ram (without fender trimming)

    my dad has a 97 ram 1500 heavy half ton sitting on 265-75-r16`s and all we did was turn the steering stoppers a little bit and it doesn`t rub..without lift i know you can fit 33`s with ease on it..how wide of a tire are you planning on going ?..we had to adjust the steering with 10.5`s on it but with the right spacing on the rim im sure you could fix the problem
