Default picture request, before/after leveling kit

People haev been telling me about leveling kits and how much better the look is but from what I've looked at I dont really see much of a difference if any.

Anybody have pics of a new truck with a leveling kit for a before/after comparison? In a perfect world a white sport?

Thanks in advance.

on a 2011 sport you might not notice a huge difference as they sit pretty level to begin with but they do make a diference for bigger tires and what not

No they don't. Mine had over 3" of rake. Now with the level kit it has 1.25... I would have liked to see it closer to 1/2" but oh well, still looks way better.

He's really lucky. I found that the 2009's sat pretty good, like 2" rake at the most, but all the 2011's I've seen around here (including my own) really look like a 2wd.
