Default No Tall Dakotas??

Hey I got a 2000 dodge Dakota 3.9L 4x4. I was looking at giving it a solid 4-4.5 inch lift, now I looked into rough country and they don't even support the Dakotas? anyways I was googling 4-4.5 inch lifts for the Dakota and nothing comes up, 3 inches is the tallest ive found. Is there anything taller? if there isn't and 3 inch is the tallest she'll go could some one recommend me a good company, one that's pretty know. I was a pretty good lift so that she'll be better in the back roads, also to fit my 35's on er. any help would be amazing

I think 2000 was the first year for rack and pinion steering, this is why there's no lift options, your basically stuck with cranking the torsion bars (worth about 1.5") and a 3" bodylift is also available.. or go solid front axle..

The money you spend on an ifs lift you are better to swap in a solid front axle. Then the lift height possibilities are endless!

I though cranking the torsion bar was "horrible" for a truck, buddy told me it brakes down if you do that, or does it? If I do crank the torsion bars to 1.5 and add a 3inch lift would I be able to fit 35s on it?
