Installed my leveling kit (2wd)
 
Well I finally pulled the trigger and installed a Ready Lift leveling kit on my 2012 1500 2wd. Next is going to be a 3 inch body lift, wheels and tires all in the next month. If I don't like the look of the truck after the body lift I'm going to install the 7" CST suspenion lift. Let me know what you think. I'm going to go with some terra graplers but I'm not sure on brand of wheel. So many to choose from and not sure which would look the best.

Yeah I've had them plastidip for about 3 months now. Just until I get my body lift and new wheels and tires.

Looks higher in the front to me but its a nice looking truck. Just curious why the big lift and tires if its only 2wd?

Yeah the front looks to sit noticeably higher.

Angle of the image or is it the way it is?

If you get a body lift I'd suggest getting gap guards. If the body lift isn't enough and you add a 7'' suspension lift your existing tires are going to look tiny.

I've always been a fan of big trucks but don't have a need for 4x4. I'm going to go with the bodylift next which I've seen another 2012 1500 in perso with the set up I want and it looks nice.

Might just be the angle of the picture. It looks even in person but now that y'all say that I'm going to go put a tape measure to it.

Once I get the 3' body lift I'm upgrading my tires and wheels so I won't have the stocks on anymore.

I understand you'll upgrade when you get the body lift. I'm asking if you plan to upgrade again if you add a 7'' suspension lift. The tires that fit with a 3'' lift are going to look tiny with 10'' of lift.

Ah I understand now. Well the plan is to install the bodylift and see how I like the stance. If I like how it sits then I'm going to go ahead and pick out some wheels and tires the same day after it's installed. If I don't like the look or height after the body lift the shop I go to has the suspension lift on hand. They have plenty of tires and wheels in stock so I'm looking at 2 days depending on how everything goes.
