if you get a body lift and crank your torsion bars youll be able to clear 33s, a body lift is about 200 bucks. or you could get spindles which are like 500.

Do they make spindles for the 2011 that are headache free? I though there was something to do with traction control or something.

shoulda asked the newer 2wd lifted guys

body lift 2006+ works for 2011

Doetsch makes a 3" spindle (what i have) for coil rangers or T-Bar rangers (sorry to hear you have T-Bars)

Doetsch also makes a 1-2" adjustable shackle

Stay away from Fabtech, VERY far away.


you wont clear 33's with keys and a shackle. you will however clear 32's. Im at 3"/4" lift and my 33's come very close.

you also need to account for gears. Unless you have 4.10's (2wd dont come stock with them) your going to need gears. nothing lower then a 4.10 ratio or you will burn the clutches in your trans. (im running 4.56's)

Shocks, go for the Bilstien 5100 3" lift shocks, or space out yours with a few nuts and washers for the keys.

If you have any more questions regarding 2wd's, please ask me. Ive spent hundreds of hours working on my truck, and even more time online finding what works and what doesnt. Hope i'm helping! Heres my truck.
