Mine's a 92 so I know it's not the same but I run 33's on it no problem. I had some rubbing so I took the molding off the front wheel wells and it's okay now. I could run 35's on the back no problem and on the front too with a little creative cutting.

I was looking at doing that as well but was strongly recommended not doing it...

Mainly for the fact that it gives it a bit rougher ride with a leveling kit, *from what I'm told*, you don't wanna krank it to the full 2inchs because you will notice a difference in the driving and it'll make it a bit rougher..

Call Bryson @ Jeep Trills, he knows alllllll

If it's diesel it'll work, for a gas truck you might want to go 33's. Diesels sit higher to begin with so you can fit 35's under them no prob with a levelling kit.

This my 2001 with a 2'' leveling kit with 35 mickey thompsons on it you get a bit of rub with the wheel fully cranked but nothing to worry about but mine is also the 4x4 offroad package which came 2 inches higher from the factory. Still drives the same but I would recommend a alignment after it is put in.

Mines an 01 offroad just like the black one above, has 35" toyo Mt's, it brushes against the back of the front wheelwell when turning if I hit a bump, but mine is a 2.5" leveling kit and the offroad is almost 2" taller to start.

In a 97 1500 with 2" leveling Id guess it will rub a fair bit whenever you turn, unless you take off that ridge in the plastic inner fenderwell.

I got mine from ebay in the states, shipped and everything was under 120 they are solid steel spacers, that bolt in, pretty strong setup, pretty easy to install, and I didnt have any alignment issues.
