    If I get this kit:

    http://www.roughcountry.com/dodge_2wd_dakota_leveling.html

    will I need anything else to get it working properly?

    What about an alignment? I'm assuming I'm gonna need to adjust the camber bolts right?

    any advice would be greatly appreciated. If you are going to flame or troll, I'll probably just ignore you.

    I am thinking of doing the front 2.5 and rear 1.5 in order to get the truck to sit level (it bugs the shit outta me that the front is sooo low).

    Lately I have just been dragging over everything around here and i think an inch or two in the air will be all I need to keep my undercarriage from getting destroyed. I'm also going to go with the 265/75/16 recommended tire specs.

    thanks in advance OT. :wiggle:

    i thought that was what i listed.

    the link is for a leveling kit, you could only get the front 2.5, but then the truck would be higher in the front than the back. I figure with the 2.5 up front and 1.5 in the rear, it will sit pretty level, and give a few more inches of ground clearance (2 inches from lift, and 1 from new tires).

    link on that pic? i wonder what size tires those are. I'm not going M/T's though. I drive too much for that. I think I'm gonna stick with the BFG AT 265/75.

    You will need an alignment. Other than that it should be all you need except for the larger tires.

    a small 2-3 inch lift with some leveling would look good.
