I have a 2012 2wd as well. I have a 2.5" daystar leveling kit on her and love it.

do you want to spend $80-200 or $1000-16000 roughly? that's the difference between leveling and lifting. I suggest hellbent steel leveling kit for your 2wd. or u do a body lift, or more expensive a suspension lift. the latter2 require $600-800 roughly in labor to install by a shop. (from my research).

Love how it looks, how long have you had the leveling kit on? Any problems with it so far?

Also whats the biggest tire size you can go with the 2.5" level.

Right now im not sure exactly what I wanna do, I just want to get several options because the more I look for leveling kits and suspension lifts I realize there is barely anyone that makes them for the 2WD, Hellbent steel only makes them for the 4WD model, and I think ive seen maybe one suspension lift for the 2WD's, thats why I started this thread to find out who makes stuff for the 2WD's and also see if anyone has these products and there experience with them.

Thank you. I've had the level since the beginning of the year. No problems at all, knock on wood. Rides and drives same as stock.

I have 275/65/20 on now, which I think is equivalent to a 34x11 if I'm not mistakin. I have a bit of room left to go bigger, no rubbing anywhere and good clearance off the UCA on a -12 offset wheel. I would like to try to get a 35x12.5 later down the road. If anything ill throw on a 1" body to make it happen.

I also wanted to know if it still had a little rake in the front or was it completely level once you installed the spacers?

Also I went on daystars website and I only see the 1.5" spacers, I dont see the 2.5".
