Looks like it would be ok, just remember to have the front end lined up after install.

I haven't gotten everything yet, but working on it... the lift came in, the new tires are here, but as the lift is up to 3 inches I need shocks, so next week I am ordering four rancho rs5000 shocks,,, that should do the trick!

Default lift kit

I also have a 2001 durango & purchased this same kit on ebay. Be careful, the first kit came with blocks, not the shackels. When i got the correct parts they didnt fit without modifications/plus no hardware. The keys are pretty straight forward but dont go above 2.5" or it will ride like a mack truck.

I just checked my kit and everything is there thankfully! Did you do the install yourself and if so can you tell me about it, Shackles are easy, but the keys are what have me questioning if I should do it myself. Also, did you replace your shocks or keep the stock ones... Reason I ask is I just put new shocks all around and don't want to replace if I don't have to. And I agree, wasn't going over 2.5 inch...

The keys are pretty easy to install. I used the shocks i had previously installed a few months earlier. Remember to have it aligned. The shackles were to wide so i had to make rubber spacers......shackles to body. The truck turned out really nice with toyo mt on stock wheels. 31s. Looks nice & no rubbing
