No..... You need to do a 3" body lift or at least a T/S lift but again I don't think there is enough room with just the T/S lift.

Wassup nim!!!!!




Torsion Shackle lift. Just search the Durango 1st generation section for it.

My post was confirmed with you needing both lifts.

Default 33's W/O lift

I honestly dont think they will fit with out a lift.
Cheapest bet is a Torsion/Shackle lift run you about 50.00
I have a 2000 with a 3" Body lift stock rims with BFG AT 33" and even they have just the slightes rub (all plastic rub) and I have not yet done the Torsion/Shackle lift

a friend of mine put 3 inch shackles and adjusted the tortion bars and slapped on some 33's...they rubbed just a little on the front so he cut a little on the wheel wells, wasnt realy even noticable and it fixed the rubbing

yes, they just rubbed a little on the inside of the wheel well...the plastic only. he took a cutting disk and cut off the spot where it rubbed and it fixed the problem, and the cut was hardly noticable

Hey there everyone. I am new here... but I have a 2000 SLT 4x4 with no lift on it yet and I am running 285/75/16 BF Goodrich A/T's on it. They rubbed a little on the inner plastic of the front wheel wells. I trimmed off a little of the plastic inside and no there is no rubbing unless I am backing up fast and on a very bumpy road. Am doing a AAL on it along with cranking the TB's

Just a heads up, and not to be a downer but a T/S lift will not properly fit a 33" tire on the front of our D's. The tire may fit on a foreward stance with the wheels straight but under compression (bumps/In turns etc) the tire will not only rub against the plastics but also deep enough to reach the fenders sheet metal... I'd highly suggest a smaller tire or a body lift... TRUST ME....
Here's a quick pic to show you the clearence of a 3"bdy on t/s with actuall 33" tires, i can still contact the fender under full compression ( and my fender and flare are 1 1/2"-2" cut back ). Click the image to open in full size.
