Benefit of Levelling Truck??
Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but I see all these posts about levelling your Truck. What is the point?? How do you know if your truck isn't level??

The factory "rake" on these trucks is a little lower in the front, all they mean by leveling is adding the tiny bit of lift for the front or lowering for the rear. Can be done cheaply and effectively rather easily. Gives ya the perfect "leveled" stance....

You can measure from the top of your tire to the lip of your fender on the front tires, then the back tires, and see the difference. Leveling your truck is more for looks and clearance for bigger tires.

It just looks better, IMHO and it helps if you want to go to a +1 or +2 size tire/wheel combo.

I find its a preferance, i like the look of a leveled truck, looks cleaner doesnt look so factory. As mentioned above fitting bigger tires which is always a plus! haha

I plan on lifting the front of mine up as soon as Santa drops off some cold hard cash. I think all it will need is a 2" lift.
