I have been looking around everywhere for both suspension and body lift kits and have not yet found any out there. I'm looking to find a 3" suspension lift preferably but can settle for a body lift. Open to any pointers, help and any feedback you can give me. By the way I have a 2000 Durango 4x4 with a 5.9L and 3.42 gear ratio on the rear end if needed.
is this the best 4x4 site for information on the 1st generation durangos? I think I'm seeing 1997-2003 as the year range?? I just bought a 98 5.2 4x4 with a lift kit (suspension) and will see if I can find a mfg marking on it. it's painted red and my mechanic buddy says it's a good professional installation both front and rear.
my current concern is over wheels. I use the truck in the desert, and have been running a 1979 jeep cherokee with 17 x8 steel wheels and treadwright 285x70x17 tires. want to do same on durango, and want steel plain jane wheels. most aftermarket "designer " wheels show 1997-2003 fitment. however, OEM 2003 17x7.5 really plain janes show that they do not fit a 98??? what changed from 98 to 03. if any body knows ,please tell me before I have to go the "designer" route. fyi, the treadwrights are really tough and really reasonable.
