personaly if u have a good 220volt welder, some know how and ambition... its not to hard just time consuming. my durango sits on 35's and does great off road. i removed the rear axle assembly and welded new perches on the top of the axle tube. i picked them up for 12 bucks at a farm store. u then just bolt the leaf springs on the top of the axle. make sure when u weld the new perches onto ur axle that u take the angle of the rear pig so u don't have too much of an angle on your u joints. and for the front. i hope your strong. i used a 3/4inch breaker bar on the torsion key bolts. just tighten them up and the front will raise. altho u must take into consideration that flipping the rear axle gives u like 7 or 8 inches of lift. and the front keys u will be lucky to get mabey 3. so u will need to cut a little bit of your inner fenders for 35's but u will be fine with 33's. just saying. gives it a very high ass and lower front for a kinda aggressive look. look at mine

i dont know how being higher in the rear than in the front looks aggressive, maybe on a drag car with 35in slicks on the rear and little donuts on the front but not on a 4x4 durango the difference in pinion angles will mess with your transfer case eventually, any way, every thing he said is right but if you want the truck to look level and not have its ass up in the air after you raise the front end, your going to need the torsion blocks off of a 2004 ram 1500 sport, its a bitch to do but the truck will sit level and you wont have to cut your front fenders if you get the ones off the ram

In the rear schackle lift is the cheapest and quickest but in the front you can raise your Durango with the torsion bar, two bolts at the rear of the torsion bar and if i remember correctly 1 whole turn of each bolt is 1/2 inch lift.
