Default Raise the front or drop the back?

So I've been doing some reading about leveling my truck and want your opinions and thoughts.

I have a 2WD 2010 Ram that I consider a street machine. I like the over all height of the stock tires but do plan to get custom rims (prob 18's) with a lower profile tire.

I see that I can raise the front with kits around $100 - 150. Pro's seem to be that it is cost effective and allow for larger wheels. Con's seem to be that some kits are hard to install and they don't 100% level the truck.

I see that I can drop the back for about $350 - 370. Pro's seem to be that some kits give you stiffer suspension that won't sag under heavier loads and the ride quality suffers little. Con's would be that you could not increase the size of your wheels.

So what an I missing? should I raise the front or drop the back and why?
