That wouldnt be a bad idea if it was done right. I use to be a Dakota guy and belong to a dakotafourm and every one with an R/T dakota was modded and dropped. But there was one guy that put a custom 2wd baja style lift on his R/T, with baja style front fenders and such. Looked pretty sweet.

I think a 2wd SS would make a great (although very unusual) starting point for a crazy off-road machine:

- Lingenfelter supercharger
- Monster transmission
- Atlas 4 speed transfer case
- Front straight axle swap
- Has 9.5 inch rear end
- 6 to 8 inch custom lift with Fabtech DirtLogic shocks
- At least 38 inch tires

AG

Now if only I had $100K lying around ...

Well I have to admit I got all over a member for asking this question a year or so ago, but now that I have my SS and its my DD and I spent a winter driving my lowered 02 where it actually snows, I have a different POV. My plan is to get some kbee coilovers (and djm a-arms, the works) and adjust them higher for winter driving and raise the bags in the rear a little bit. But who knows, thats about a $1000 project in itself, for probably 4k I could just buy my 02 TB from my parents and buy some markmc spacers to get the lift for $120. (Yes Ive been thinking about this, just need $$$ which I dont have)

Time will tell, but if you lift your SS put some different rims on it. Otherwise I might cry.

I'm not real familiar with the SS suspension, but would Mark's kit not work? I know you all have the rear airbags, but is there much more difference then that?

I don't have an SS, but a lifted TB withh SS wheels is OK - isn't it?
I know we all have different tastes - I just wanted to give you an idea what it looks like.

The SS front suspension is the same as everything else, just a different (shorter) spring and shock. Could run the spacers easily but eh Id rather buy the coilovers so I can drop it in the spring/summer/fall. But didnt think about alignments, that would get pricey quick as $60 a time, 2x per year.

I really need to make some $$ this summer so I can keep both TBs in the fam, problem solved!:duh:

Thats not as bad as I imagined it at all. But you need some bigger AT tires on the rims to make it look even better!

I just inherited $27.2 million from a dead uncle in Nigeria I never knew I had. Actually never even knew I had any Nigerian roots. Or DNA. :cool:

I'll just send some of that along. I should be getting it Fedexed next week.
:dielaugh::dielaugh::dielaugh:I doubt anybody got that besides me, but that was very funny!
