Will 36″ mudders fit on a 99 ram 4×4 ext cab short bed without getting a lift kit?

I've had 33's on it before and there looked like there was enough room to have 36's or bigger. I bought the truck used and I think there might be a lift on it already because it has an after market heavy duty suspension. It looks slightly higher than a friends 98 4×4 but I could be wrong. I just wanted to throw some 36's on it but I don't have money for a lift kit too.

    if it looks like a lift kit, it could be the Factory "OFFROAD" package. it came from the factory around 2"s taller then a stock 1500 and with 33" tires.

    and no you will not be able to fit them.
    on my 99 ram, i have a 3" body lift and a 5" suspension lift to clear 36" TSL radials i had at the time, now i run 37" Goodyear MTRs with some rubbing.

    not only does putting on a lift kit to clear the tires, you also have to take into consideration the gearing. tall tires on stock gear ratios is hard on the transmission.

    YOU NEED TO PUT IN A LIFT TO PUT 36" TIRES ON. BIGGEST YOU CAN GO IS 33'S

    You need to lift the suspension 6" to fit 36's.

    A stock Ram will not take 36's.
