I wanted to level it down and get the aftermarket larger sway bars to make it our Ram an aggressive street truck, Wife wanted a 6' lift with 35s
I don't plan on lifting another 2WD truck

You can drop it fairly reasonably, and it isn't as hard on the suspension. Lifting is pretty damn expensive, and harder on the suspension. Also worse mpg, etc.

True, though to be honest our Hemi has been just as gas hungry on 17s with 285s, or the 20s with 295s, as with 35s with 17s

It really depends on what kind of look YOU want. If you like the lowered look, drop the back end. If you like the raised look, lift the front end. If you like the stock rake, leave it raked. Personally, I like the rake. Think it looks a little meaner. JMO. Most of all, have fun with whatever you do.

IF I were to do either, I would definitely raise the front. I just can't lower a truck.

Most likely, I'll leave mine with the stock rake.

Default Don't mess with it.

Leave it alone. So many of my friends have leveled it or raised or whatever.
Then all they do is complain about how it handles how it rides and roles.
Stock height is the best looking in my opinion. that is just how I prefer it.
